World Dream, a member of the Genting Group-owned Dream Cruises company, docked at the southern port of Tan Cang Cai Mep in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province on Tuesday, before commencing its first-ever commercial trip in Vietnam.

With more than 3,600 passengers aboard, they left the southern port by bus for a brief visit to Ho Chi Minh City.

Whilst in the southern metropolis, the holidaymakers visited some the city’s well-known attractions, including the Municipal Theater, Central Post Office and Ben Thanh Market, before dining aboard a tourist boat on the Saigon River.

After touring Ho Chi Minh City, the passengers returned to World Dream, which departed for the famed beach city of Nha Trang in the south-central province of Khanh Hoa, where they are expected to arrive today.

The 18-story World Dream cruise, measuring 335 meters long, is capable of carrying 5,376 passengers and crew members.

It was put into operation by Genting Hong Kong in November, and is expected to mostly serve luxury tourists across Asia.
