Genting Dream Cruise Ship Passenger Missing Overboard – On Monday August 5, 2019, around 0300 hours, Goh Hai Peng, 74, was aboard Dream Cruises cruise ship Genting Dream in Singapore and was looking forward to four-day cruise, which would have arrived at the islands of Penang and Langkawi in Malaysia on Aug 5 and 6.
But, when the vessel arrived back in Singapore, the crew noticed that Goh was no longer on board. His belongings were still in his room which looked out onto a balcony.
His son, Adrian Goh, said that the last time his father was seen on surveillance footage was when he was entering his cabin at around 7 p.m. on the first night of the trip. Goh also said that the surveillance footage showed a figure falling into the sea around 3 a.m. the next day.
“My father was supposed to go on the trip with my mother, but because she had to look after their grandchild, he went on his own,” he said. “I believe he would not have done anything silly.”
A Dream Cruises spokesman said crew members searched the ship after Goh had not claimed his passport during disembarkation upon docking in Singapore on August 7.
The cruise company has confirmed the incident, “Dream Cruises offers its heartfelt thoughts and sympathies to the family members of the missing person in this time of difficulty. Dream Cruises is working closely with the respective authorities and will inform the family members should there be any updates from the authorities on the reported incident.”
Because Goh Hai Peng was not found, the case has been added to the Cruise Ship Deaths database.
