SunStone's Chinese built cruise vessels

SunStone Ships has ordered a series of expedition cruise vessels designed by Ulstein for construction at CMHI. These are the first China-built cruise vessels. They are also the first to introduce the X-BOW® feature in their design, to increase comfort for the passengers. The vessels are chartered to travel operators.

The Aurora Expeditions', 'Greg Mortimer' ship, came into 10m waves on her first journey. The Master reported: “It’s a totally different experience! In big seas, I kept waiting for the slamming, but it never came. You don’t feel the sea".
