US based SunStone Ships has ordered a series of X-BOW® expedition cruise vessels for construction at the CMHI yard, China.
Although being one of the sister vessels to the 'Greg Mortimer', which is vessel number 1 in the INFINITY series, the 'Ocean Victory' differs from the 'Greg Mortimer' in several ways, reflecting the flexibility of the design series. The 'Ocean Victory' sports 93 staterooms, all with ocean view and 90 per cent with their own balcony, and an infinity pool has been installed. The bridge wings have been replaced by two observation platforms. On board are several restaurants, a wellness area, an Albatros Nordic Bar, an open deck dining facility, a modern lecture lounge, and other amenities.
The 'Ocean Victory', number three in the INFINITY series of expedition cruise vessels, has been chartered out to Albatros Expeditions for Antarctica journeys in the winter season. The company has also announced that they will operate some South American voyages. In the summer, American Queen Steamboat Co., through its sister company Victory Cruise Lines, will be offering Alaska cruises. Ocean Victory is scheduled for her first voyage in November 2021, and will be joined by her sister ship, 'Ocean Albatros', in Q4 2022.
