Ocean Victory, ship number three in the SunStone Ships’ INFINITY series, had her launching ceremony 16 March at the CMHI Haimen yard.
She is the second exploration cruise vessel built at the yard featured with the ULSTEIN X-BOW®. Ulstein Design & Solutions is providing the design and equipment package to this project.
Although being one of the sister vessels to the ‘Greg Mortimer’, the first vessel in the INFINITY series, the ‘Ocean Victory’ differs from the ‘Greg Mortimer’ in several ways, reflecting the flexibility of the design series.
The 104.4m long vessel sports the capacity for 200 passengers in 93 suites, 68 with balconies, nine with French balconies and 16 with panoramic windows.
An infinity pool has been installed, and the bridge wings have been replaced by two observation platforms.
When time comes, the vessel has been chartered out to Albatros Travel for Antarctica journeys in the winter season and to American Queen Steamboat for Alaska cruises in the summer.
