Ocean Victory, the third ship in the Infinity-class SunStone Ships (cruise shipowner) had her official launching ceremony on March 16 at the CMHI Haimen yard. Ocean Victory is the second exploration cruise ship built at the yard with the unique ULSTEIN X-BOW. The ship design and equipment was provided by Ulstein Design & Solutions.
Although being one of the sisterships to Greg Mortimer (the first vessel in the Infinity series), Ocean Victory slightly differs from Greg Mortimer.
The 104-m long newbuild has passenger capacity 200 and 93 staterooms (68 have step-out balconies, 9 French balconies and 16 large windows). New features on this vessel are the infinity pool and two observation platforms (replacing the original design's Bridge Wings).
The ship has been chartered out to Albatros Travel for Antarctica cruises (during winter) and to Victory Cruise Lines (American Queen Steamboat Company-owned brand) for Alaskan summer voyages.
