“Going forward, we will continue to explore more opportunities for inter-city collaborations involving drive, rail and fly-cruise to propel the development of the South China cruise market to the next level. On behalf of our officers, crew and colleagues, we are pleased to celebrate the inaugural call of World Dream to Shenzhen. As Asia’s Global Cruise Line, we are committed to delivering inspirational vacations at sea, offering value, quality and unique destination experiences to our partners and guests from Shenzhen.”
