Resorts World Cruises (RWC) will launch three- and five-nights cruises to Phuket from both Singapore and Kuala Lumpur (via Port Klang) aboard Genting Dream later this month.
Guests can choose to board the ship from Singapore for the five-night Kuala Lumpur-Penang-Phuket cruise departing on November 20, 2022 and March 12, 2023; or from Port Klang on November 21, 2022 and March 13, 2023 for a five-night Penang-Phuket-Singapore sailing.
There are also the three-night options, from Singapore and from Port Klang with sailing dates available between May 2023 and April 2024. All cruises to Phuket will offer shore experiences.
Bookings will open from November 15.
Michael Goh, president, RWC, said Genting Dream’s two- and three-night cruises have been very popular.
“As such, the introduction of Phuket as a cruise destination is timely and will further fuel the growth of the domestic and FlyCruise markets in the region,” said Goh.
Nongyao Jirundorn, director, Malaysia & Brunei, Tourism Authority of Thailand, said: “As the cruise tourism industry is making a comeback, we are delighted to collaborate with Resorts World Cruises to welcome more inbound tourists to Phuket and across Thailand from the cruise sector.
“We are excited that more calls to the island are confirmed and expected in 2023 and 2024.”
