Genting and Dream Cruises Launch Naming Contest for First Global Class Ship

Celebrating 25 years in the Asian cruise industry, Genting Hong Kong announced today it has launched a naming contest for the first of two Global-class ships for Dream Cruises.

With a keel laying set for next week, Dream Cruises will now take submissions on the name of the ship (in English or Mandarin) online.

The grand prize: not one but 25 complimentary cruises on Genting's advanced 5,000-guest ship, which is under construction at MV Werften.

The first of the two ships will be delivered in late 2020, while a second ship follows a year later. Designed for Asian guests, the ships will be built to be deployed globally.

MV Werften Lays Keel for Dream Cruises’ 1st Global Class Ship

The keel laying ceremony for Dream Cruises’ Global Class flagship, featuring 204,000 gross ton, took place at MV Werften’s Rostock shipyard today.

The first section, with a length of 22 meters, width of 26 meters and weighing 410 tons, about half of the full keel, marks the start of construction of the largest cruise ship ever built in Germany.

“The Global Class is designed from the keel upwards for the Asian sourced market, which requires more exciting public areas and larger cabins than traditional cruise ships and, supported by the world’s leading technology and digital systems for Asians, who are more used to digital technology,” Genting Hong Kong’s Executive Chairman, Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, said.

“We are creating something truly great. After an intensive engineering and design phase, today’s keel laying marks the next stage of the manufacturing process of MV’s first giant, its dock assembly,” Peter Fetten, Managing Director at MV Werften added.

Production of the 204,000 gross ton ship, which will be 342 meters long and over 46 meters wide, will take place in parallel in Wismar and Rostock.

The 220-meter-long midship will be manufactured in Rostock. It will be moved to Wismar in 2019, where the bow and stern, as well as the superstructures, will be mounted.

The Global Class ships, capable of accommodating up to 5,000 passengers, were designed for the rapidly growing Asian cruise market.

DELTAMARIN AND ELOMATIC TO DESIGN SECOND GLOBAL CLASS CRUISE SHIP FOR MV WERFTEN

Deltamarin and Elomatic, both from Turku Finland, have signed a significant agreement with MV WERFTEN Wismar GmbH for the basic and detail design of a second Global class cruise ship. The value of the contract is approximately €16.5M for Deltamarin and €17M for Elomatic. The vessel will be built in parallel in Wismar and Rostock, Germany. The contract was signed on October 26, 2018 and design work has already commenced.

The vessel is the second in the series of Global class vessels. In addition to engineering, Deltamarin and Elomatic will also provide site services at the shipyard during the construction of the vessel. The two companies also did a large part of the basic and detail design of the first vessel in the cruise ship series.

The Global class vessels are some of the world’s largest cruise ships. When the first vessel is completed, it will be the largest ever built in Germany. The second vessel being designed will be approximately 342 meters long and 46.4 metres wide with a gross register tonnage of 204,000. The ships are designed specifically for the Asian market and can carry up to 9,500 passengers.

“We are very proud to continue the strategic partnership with MV WERFTEN. We look forward to further developing the cooperation with the yard, providing them with excellent services and helping them execute Genting’s extensive newbuilding program,” says Deltamarin CEO, Janne Uotila.

“We are very happy that MV WERFTEN continues to trust in our expertise and ability to design world-class cruise ships and we look forward to designing the second vessel in this remarkable Global class series,” says Elomatic CEO Patrik Rautaheimo.

Construction of second Global Class cruise ship begun at MV WERFTEN

Genting Hong Kong’s Chairman and CEO Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay personally initiated the start of steel cutting for the 342 m long, 208,000 gross ton Global 2, which will be one of the largest and technologically most advanced cruise ships in the world.

Wismar, 10. September 2019 | Rostock, 10 September 2019 | Production of the second Global Class ship commenced at MV WERFTEN in Rostock-Warnemünde today, almost exactly a year after the keel laying of the flagship of the series. Genting Hong Kong’s Chairman and CEO Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay initiated at the press of a button the first steel cutting for the 342 m long, 46 m wide, 208,000 gross ton cruise vessel.

“We are delighted that our comprehensive investments at the three shipyard locations are bearing fruit and we can already celebrate today the first steel cutting for another technologically advanced vessel for Dream Cruises,” Tan Sri Lim stated. “Also thanks to the use of artificial intelligence, Global 2 will offer our passengers a very interesting, modern and highly comfortable travel experience.”

Global 2 is identical in construction to her sister ship Global 1, which is due to enter operation under the name “Global Dream” in 2021. Production work on the new vessel with the yard number 126 is also being divided up among all three locations of MV WERFTEN. For example, up to 30 large sections are being built in Stralsund for subsequent final assembly in Wismar, where a 125 m high crane, purchased specially for the Global project, is currently being installed at the outfitting quay. The keel laying of the ship is planned for 9 December 2019, with delivery scheduled for 2022.

MV WERFTEN’s CEO Peter Fetten said: “Building these sophisticated high-tech ships is a challenge, but above all an enormous opportunity for us. We would like to thank all colleagues and partners for their great work during the planning and design phase, and we are glad to start now with production.”

Like her sister ship, Global 2 is also intended for the fast-growing Asian market. With 2,500 passenger cabins accommodating up to 9,500 persons and a crew of 2,200, the “Global Dream” and Global 2 are the first vessels worldwide capable of carrying more than 10,000 persons. In terms of size and passenger capacity, they are the largest ships ever built in Germany. They are well equipped with state-of-the-art digital technologies, such as face and speech recognition, climate control, mood lighting, etc via app or voice, and are thus optimally designed to meet the advanced digital requirements of the Asian cruise market. The standard cabins are the most spacious in the sector – at 20 m² about 15% larger than those offered on other cruise ships.

The 2,503 passenger cabins and 836 crew cabins for the new ship are being produced as completely prefabricated modules at MV WERFTEN Fertigmodule in Wismar. A total of over 600 firms are involved in the construction of the Global 2. Over half of the partner companies come from Germany, a fifth from the Federal State of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
