SunStone's Ocean Victory launched in China
As the Ocean Victory was introduced at the Haimen Shipyard in China earlier this week, SunStone Ships has unveiled its second Infinity-class newbuild.
The vessel will be delivered on a split charter contract later this year that will see Albatros operating the vessel in Antarctica and Victory Cruise Lines operating the vessel in Alaska. Annually, each charterer would have the ship for about 180 calendar days.
The Niels-Erik Lund-led SunStone Ships marks its second newbuild, delivering the Greg Mortimer last year to Aurora Expeditions on a long term charter contract.
On the cruise ship order book five more ships are scheduled, and the company has options to build up to a total of 10.
The Ocean Victory will have room for 186 guests.
