New bookings for World Dream ship operating in Singapore remain suspended until further notice, the cruise operator announced on Friday, February 4.

World Dream is one of two ships running cruises to nowhere in Singapore. The other vessel is Royal Caribbean's Quantum of the Seas.

On January 23, the company had said it would suspend bookings for an initial period of 2 weeks after the parent company, Genting Hong Kong (GHK), applied for liquidation.

GHK owns the Dream Cruises and Star Cruises lines which serve the Asia Pacific, as well as the luxury Crystal Cruises based in Miami (Florida USA)

In its Friday media statement, Dream Cruises said GHK would continue to operate Dream Cruises' fleet in the region but added that new bookings for World Dream would remain suspended from February 4 onwards until further notice, "as the joint provisional liquidators continue to explore the state of business and to identify, examine and explore the options available." 

Dream Cruises filed for liquidation on January 27 and submitted an application to appoint joint provisional liquidators. It said in the media statement on Friday that one of the purposes for applying to appoint joint provisional liquidators was "to continue the scheduled itineraries for Dream Cruises."
