Its head office is in Suite 1501 of the Ocean Centre (海洋中心) building in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.[2]

Cruise lines[edit]

Star Cruises was established by Genting in 1993.[3] Genting positions Star Cruises for the "contemporary cruise market".[4]

In 2000, Genting's Star Cruises purchased Miami-based Norwegian Cruise Line, but later sold half of the company to Apollo Management in 2007.[5] A 2013 IPO of Norwegian Cruise Line further reduced Star Cruises' ownership share to 28%.[6]

In 2015, Genting purchased Crystal Cruises,[7] which specializes in the "international luxury cruise market",[4] and a majority stake in Lloyd Werft, a German shipyard that was, as of May 2016, under contract to build 10 ships for Genting-owned cruise lines.[4] In November of that year, Genting announced the introduction of Dream Cruises, an Asian luxury cruise line that will debut in November 2016.[4][8]

In 2016, Genting purchased the remaining 30% of Lloyd Werft,[9] as well as Nordic Yards' Wismar, Warnemunde, and Stralsund shipyards, and combined them to form what was initially called the Lloyd Werft Group.[10] Several months later, the three ex-Nordic Yards facilities were spun out into a separate company, named MV Werften.[11]
