Meyer Werft laid the keel for Genting Dream Thursday at their Papenburg yard. The newbuild carries the yard number S.711.
The first block, weighing 740 tons, was lowered into place in Meyer’s covered building dock. It is resting on the traditional lucky coin that was placed on the bracing by Genting Chairman Tan Sri Lim and Bernard Meyer. It is the first of 92 blocks that will comprise the ship.
The complete story appeared in the December 4 edition of Cruise News Daily.
