In Conversation with Colin Kerr SVP Entertainment Genting Hong Kong

Entertainment offerings between Genting Dream and Star Cruises…

For the entertainment offerings in the Zodiac Theatre, there is a definite upgrade in the entertainment for Dream Cruises. The famous TV show ‘China’s Got Talent – The Dream Experience’ comes to stage and to make it even more exciting, with each show, guests can choose their favourite act on the Dream Cruises mobile app therefore, each show will have a different winner. The ‘Voyage of a Lovers Dream’ excels with top world class performers, creative storylines, outstanding costumes and a wonderful soundtrack. Another incredible venue that I am in love with is the Bar 360 where we showcase breathtaking acrobatics flying across the three deck high bar, fast-moving mini shows and top notch vocalists. The Bar 360 floor rotates and is encompassed in a ground and ceiling LED which takes the entertainment experience to a more intimate level.

Excelling in music, food, shopping or…

It’s not in one singular aspect but in how all the dimensions complement each other for a high class cruising experience where the guests are in control of what they do and when they do it. A great improvement on being herded around and being dictated what to do by a schedule – we offer the freedom of choice. Top class international musicians from all over the world, famous chefs and shopping opportunities to fit our target markets.

Enjoying the floating entertainment mecca during port action…

Many people opt to stay onboard, especially those guests who have sailed with us before. When the ship is in port, that’s when staying onboard is a great option, to get full use of all the facilities. Careening down the rope course’s zipline, taking full advantage of the waterslides or just relaxing quietly by the pool is great when the ship is in port. Also the intimacy of the activities, such as ‘new to learn’ arts and crafts, are a delight when we are in port since the cruise staff really get the time to teach you a new skill. And for some, it is a day for pampering where you can enjoy the largest Asian Spa at Sea for reflexology and combine this with a facial to take away all the stress. Something that takes us to a new level is the introduction of Belo Beauty, to be found in Crystal Life Wellness, where you can experience non-invasive beauty treatments that will let you disembark the ship looking refreshed and years younger.
