Construction on Genting's Dream Cruises' 2nd Global Class ship commenced at MV Werften in Warnemunde-Rostock on Tuesday, September 10, almost a year after the keel laying of the series' flagship.

Genting Hong Kong Chairman & CEO Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay pressed the button for the first steel cutting for the 342 meters long, 46 meters wide, 208,000 GT cruise ship.

The second Global Class ship of Dream Cruises is identical in construction to her ship sistership, which is scheduled to enter operation under the name Global Dream in 2021.

Production work on the ship with yard number 126 is being divided up among all 3 locations of MV Werften. Up to 30 huge sections are being built in Stralsund for subsequent assembly in Wismar, where a 125-meter high crane, bought especially for the Global project, is being installed at the outfitting quay.

The ship's keel laying is planned for December 9, 2019, with delivery scheduled for 2022.

Dream Cruises’ 2nd Global Class ship is also intended for the Asian market. With 2,500 cabins accommodating more than 9,000 passengers and a crew of 2,200, Global Dream and the 2nd Global Class vessel are the first ships worldwide capable of carrying over 10,000 persons. In terms of passenger capacity, these are the largest cruise ships ever built in Germany.
