About Genting Hong Kong Limited
Genting Hong Kong Limited (“Genting Hong Kong”) is a leading global leisure, entertainment and hospitality enterprise, with core competences in both land and sea-based businesses including Genting Cruise Lines comprising of Star Cruises, Dream Cruises, and Crystal Cruises, along with German shipyards MV Werften and Lloyd Werft, prominent nightlife brand Zouk, and Resorts World Manila (“RWM”), an associate of Genting Hong Kong.

A pioneer in its own right, Genting Hong Kong was incorporated in November 1993, operating its fleet under Star Cruises, to take on a bold initiative to grow the Asia Pacific region as an international cruise destination. Star Cruises has built its reputation on offering first-rate Asian hospitality throughout its fleet of five vessels including SuperStar Virgo, SuperStar Gemini, SuperStar Aquarius, Star Pisces and The Taipan.
Dream Cruises’ two new vessels Genting Dream (launched 2016) and World Dream (launched 2017) will deliver the highest level of guest service and spacious comfort in the region. Catering to a wide spectrum of consumers in China and Asia, the Dream Cruises experience will provide passengers with more choice, comfort and value to create a perfect dream voyage. Explorer Dream, to launch in March 2019, will further fuel Dream Cruises’ global aspirations while production has also started in Germany on two new Global Class ships that will join the fleet beginning in Q1 2021.
Crystal Cruises is the world’s leading luxury cruise provider, having earned more “World’s Best” awards than any other cruise line, hotel, or resort in history. In 2015, Crystal embarked on the most significant brand expansion in the history of luxury travel and hospitality, which introduced two new classes of cruising – Crystal Yacht Expedition Cruises and Crystal River Cruises – and reached new heights with Crystal Luxury Air and Crystal AirCruises. Crystal Cruises offers extensive itineraries traversing the globe, ranging from five days to approximately 100-day World Cruises and regionally-focused Grand Cruises.
Crystal River Cruises sails a fleet of five all-suite, butler-serviced ships along the Danube, Rhine, Main and Moselle rivers, earning “World’s Best” acclaim within its first complete year of embarkation. Crystal Yacht Expedition Cruises’ Crystal Esprit offers boutique yachting journeys in the West Indies, Adriatic, Seychelles and United Arab Emirates. The brand extension will welcome its first PC6-designated expedition yacht, Crystal Endeavor, in 2020.
To capitalize on the growing demand for new cruise ships and to realize the company’s own expansion plans, in 2016, Genting Hong Kong established MV Werften comprising of three shipyards in Wismar, Rostock and Stralsund, Germany following the purchase of Lloyd Werft the previous year which specializes in building megayachts and other newbuilds. With the consolidated expertise and facilities of the shipyards, including approximately 1,500 experienced management and workers, MV Werften will be capable of building large ships.

As the only club from the Asia Pacific region to regularly retain its top 10 position in DJ Mag’s Top 100 Clubs global poll, Zouk is currently ranked third and is the trendsetter in propelling Asia’s dance music scene forward.
