The river cruise company Victoria Cruise Lines (China) announced it is entering the ocean cruise market with a couple of former HAL-Holland America ships.

The company is a leader in luxury cruising on the Yangtze River (China), with 7 ships in operation.

Victoria Cruise Lines revealed that the 2 former HAL ships - ms Veendam (Aegean Majesty) and ms Ryndam (Aegean Goddess), now renamed Victoria Majestic and Victoria Amazing, respectively, will offer affordable experiences at sea, featuring "a long-term residential cruise experience."

Starting May 2023, the company's 2 oceangoing ships will offer a residential cruise experience sailing to 200+ global destinations.

Headquartered in Limassol (Cyprus Greece), Victoria Cruises Line provides cruisers the opportunity to rent luxury suites/premium staterooms for a minimum of 6 months or for a longer period.  

The around-the-world voyage of the line will take ~27 months with ~540 days spent at ports. The vessels will spend 1 to 7 days in each port, so tourists can explore the city and the surrounding areas.

Olavs Zvinelis (company's CEO) said the company offered their customers a unique lifestyle that was completely new to the shipping industry.

"We provide rental cabins at affordable prices to clients who want to live on a boat and travel the world without any strings attached. It's our mission to deliver a unique houseboat experience for our residents, who will live on board like a little family."
