Mermaid Kat with a Shark

According to Dream Cruises, myth will become a reality for guests on the Genting Dream with the visit of a real mermaid when Mermaid Kat joins the ship for a five-night sailing on Jan. 22. 

The voyage to Vietnam includes a series of talks by Mermaid Kat on how she embarked on her career to ensure the conservation of the seas and its inhabitants.

“We are delighted to welcome Mermaid Kat as our special ‘Dreamscapes’ guest speaker on Genting Dream,” said Dream Cruises President Thatcher Brown. “The mermaid is an icon of our Dream Cruises brand, a mythological character that reflects the elegance of our brand, together with a natural connection to the sea.”

Mermaid Kat is one of a few so-called professional mermaids in the world.

Mermaid Kat stablished the world’s first-ever mermaid training school in 2012 and it has branches in Australia and Germany and has trained mermaid instructors worldwide.

She has also hosted workshops and special events in the U.K., Maldives, Philippines, Australia, Thailand, Switzerland, Austria, Egypt, Indonesia and Germany. Mermaid Kat will be donning her specialized mermaid tail and inviting guests to join her in a series of pool training sessions at Genting Dream’s Main Pool, to learn how to swim like mermaid.
