Dream Princess’ dream come true with optima Cruise Management System.

Haifa, 21 April, 2005. The largest and most luxurious cruise ship ever to operate in Israel opened its cruise season today utilizing the latest updates of Optima Cruise software package.  The Dream Princess is 200 meters long, has 600 rooms, and is capable of carrying 1,400 vacationers. The ship, formerly owned by Royal Caribbean (RCL) and by MyTravel, sailed in the Caribbean Islands until last November and has been renovated in Greece, at a cost of over $6 million.  

The implementation of the entire Optima Cruise Package on the ship included the Optima Ship, Optima Easy-POS, Personal Magnetic ID Cards for purchasing in the outlets and for the boarding system, Optima Priority ERP and Optima Shorex (for shore excursions booking and ticketing).

Optima ship is designed to meet the needs on board a cruise ship, based on the technology and features of the Optima PMS. The Front Office Accounting module receives manifests from the central reservation system, opens folios for the cruise passengers and crew, centralizes all charges from the points of sales and closes the accounts upon arrival to final destination. The Optima Easy-POS handles all the outlets on board allowing passengers to charge their folio only with their personal magnetic passenger card. The Optima Priority is used both for running the general ledger and for the entire inventory and purchasing operations of the ship.

The Dream Princess will sail twice a week from Haifa Port to Larnaca Port and Limassol Port in Cyprus, Alanya Port and Marmaris Port in Turkey, and to Rhodes and Santorini in Greece.
