Setting Sail with Faith: Genting Dream Earns Top Marks for Muslim-Friendly Cruising | Muslim-friendly Cruise Report 2024

Apr 2024

For Muslim travelers seeking luxurious vacations that cater to their faith, the Genting Dream cruise ship by Resorts World Cruises is charting a new course. As highlighted in the recently released Mastercard-CrescentRating Muslim-friendly Cruise Report (February 2024), the Genting Dream stands out as a pioneer in the industry, receiving the coveted Crescent Rating of 5 – the highest designation for its exceptional Halal-friendly offerings.

This recognition comes as no surprise.  Genting Dream was the first cruise line to not only achieve but also renew its Crescent Rating, demonstrating a sustained commitment to Muslim guest experiences.  Furthermore, Resorts World Cruises secured the prestigious "Muslim-Friendly Cruise Line of the Year" award at the 2023 Halal in Travel Awards, solidifying its position as an industry leader.

The key to Genting Dream's success lies in its comprehensive approach.  Partnering with the United World Halal Development (UNWHD), the cruise line adheres to the rigorous OIC/SMIIC (Organisation of Islamic Cooperation/Standards and Metrology Institute for Islamic Countries) standards for Halal certification. This ensures the utmost transparency and religious compliance for Muslim guests.

Onboard, passengers are treated to a world of luxurious comfort that respects their faith. Dedicated venues, like the Halal-certified Lido Restaurant, offer a delectable array of authentic Asian and International cuisine, prepared according to Halal guidelines.  For added convenience, 24/7 room service ensures access to Halal meals throughout the voyage.

Religious obligations are seamlessly integrated into the cruise experience.  During the holy month of Ramadan, dedicated services cater to pre-dawn Sahoor meals, celebratory Iftar buffets, and Taraweeh night prayers.  For daily prayers, well-appointed prayer facilities are available, equipped with complimentary Qurans, prayer beads, compasses, and prayer mats.

Genting Dream understands the importance of privacy and comfort for female Muslim guests. The cruise line offers tailored healthcare and spa services that cater to their specific needs. This holistic approach ensures a truly enriching and relaxing vacation experience for all.

The Genting Dream's success story paves the way for a more inclusive cruise industry. As the Muslim travel market continues to flourish,  Resorts World Cruises sets a high bar for providing exceptional Halal-friendly experiences.  For Muslim travelers seeking a luxurious vacation that integrates their faith seamlessly, the Genting Dream offers a voyage unlike any other.
