(Singapore 6 February 2024) – Resorts World Cruises is delighted to partner with  Singapore Red Cross (SRC) to host a special port-stay event for seniors to celebrate the Lunar New Year on Genting Dream. To usher in the year of the dragon, Resorts World Cruises’ shore staff and ship crew welcomed approximately 50 seniors and volunteers under SRC’s ElderAid programme with a special ‘Lo Hei’ session, a tradition of tossing ‘yu sheng’ (a platter of colourful salad and raw fish) to bring prosperity and good health.

Invited guests were further treated to high tea and a string of fun-filled entertainment, which included a dance show by the ship’s amazing ballroom duo - Anton & Alina, as well as a performance of popular classic songs by the ship’s inhouse band, Trinity Trio. Both crew and shore staff also had the wonderful chance to interact and spend some valuable time with the seniors dancing and Karaoke singing.

“On behalf of Resorts World Cruises and the crew of Genting Dream, we are honoured to have this opportunity to celebrate the Lunar New Year with our new senior friends and volunteers under Singapore Red Cross. As a cruise line that is headquartered in Singapore and homegrown in Asia, we are deeply committed to serving and enriching our communities in every way possible,” said Mr. Michael Goh, President of Resorts World Cruises. “We look forward to future CSR initiatives and collaborations with Singapore Red Cross, as well as more charities and non-profit organizations,” he added.

Ms Eileen Cher, Assistant Secretary General (Corporate), Singapore Red Cross said “Going onboard a cruise has always been on the top of our seniors’ wishlist, and we are very grateful to Resorts World Cruises for making this happen for the seniors cared for by the Singapore Red Cross. Our humanitarian efforts are made possible by the strong support of partners like Resorts World Cruises, and we look forward to collaborating across more areas such as community engagement and fundraising.”
