Maiden journey of mega cruise ship could be straight to the scrapyard

Tuesday, Jun 21, 2022 0

Mega cruise ship Global Dream II could soon be headed for the scrapyard even before it sailed its maiden journey.

It was set to be the flagship for Dream Cruises before owner Genting Hong Kong’s collapse.

The ship is about 80% built at the MV Werften shipyard, which was also part of Genting HK.

There is hope a buyer can still be found although a one-way trip to scrapping is increasingly likely.

It could be towed to a new location.

Construction had started in 2018.

At 208,000 gross tonnes, it would have been one of the largest cruise liners in the world.
