Genting Cruise Lines announced the restart of sailings in Taiwan with Explorer Dream ship beginning on December 31 after stopping due to the COVID outbreak in May 2021.

Upon restart, Explorer Dream will again welcome guests on 2- and 3-night Super Seacations from the port of Keelung (Taipei City) to domestic destinations like Anping, Hualien, and Kaohsiung.

Mr. Kent Zhu, President, Genting Cruise Lines, said Dream Cruises was delighted to announce the restart of cruises in Taiwan on December 31 to provide the island’s residents with the chance "to embark on a Super Seacation and enjoy the feeling of travelling again."

“Since we suspended operations in May, Dream Cruises has been working with the Taiwan authorities to plan on the safe restart of cruises and to revisit our health and hygiene guidelines and protocols to ensure the safest environment for both guests and crew. We are proud to have been the first cruise company to resume cruises in Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong and of our stellar record of no COVID-19-related incidents in Taiwan since Explorer Dream first began operations in July 2020.”

From July 2020 through May 2021, Dream Cruises has welcomed 90,000+ guests onboard Explorer Dream for Super Seacations, allowing vacationers to visit some of the most iconic destinations on the island and outlying isles without the hassle of packing/unpacking.
