SuperStar Virgo to Become Explorer Dream, Transfer to Dream Cruises

Genting Hong Kong has announced that the SuperStar Virgo will move from Star Cruises to Dream Cruises in April 2019.

The 1998-built, 2,000-guest ship will sail from Northern Asia next summer and then move to Australia and New Zealand for the winter season. The ship will be renamed the Explorer Dream.

The change leaves Star Cruises with two vessels in regular cruise service in Asia with the SuperStar Gemini and SuperStar Aquarius; in addition to the Star Pisces, which offers one-night cruises from Hong Kong.

Star's SuperStar Libra also exited the fleet earlier this year, as the vessel became a hotel ship for MV Werften.

Dream Cruises will also receive new ships in 2020 and 2021, respectively, as the 5,000-passenger Global-class vessels enter service.

Dream Cruises and Genting Cruise Lines have unveiled the hull art for the Explorer Dream, which is currently being converted to Dream Cruises service from her previous career as the SuperStar Virgo.

The new hull artwork by New York-based, Chinese artist, Kuri Huang continues the brand’s signature mermaid brand icon as the hull painting beckons viewers to ride upon “Waves of Dreams” in a whimsical and colorful ode to exploration and discovery, the company said.

“Dream Cruises is excited to welcome the artistic talents of Kuri Huang who will provide the hull art to our newest ship, Explorer Dream,” said Thatcher Brown, President of Dream Cruises. “Huang’s artistic style aptly embodies Dream Cruises’ brand essence with its imaginative depiction of mythic creatures on a quest to explore new horizons across the seas.”

The artwork on the hull of Explorer Dream continues the mermaid brand by her sister ships Genting Dream and World Dream.
