   December 7, 2021 ,   Cruise Industry

AQV-American Queen Voyages announced that ms Victory I and ms Victory II would be renamed Ocean Voyager and Ocean Navigator, respectively, when they re-enter service in early 2022.

The sisterships are specialized in Lakes & Ocean experiences by AQV, the new brand recently unveiled encompassing former AGSC-American Queen Steamboat Company and VCL-Victory Cruise Lines.

Ocean Voyager will commence her 2022 season on January 4 with immersive Mexico & Yucatan Peninsula itineraries while Ocean Navigator will debut in Savannah on April 10, sailing up the eastern seaboard to the Great Lakes for the summer cruise season.

The two ships are currently in Port Royal, South Carolina undergoing renovations in preparation for the upcoming season.

Ocean Voyager and Ocean Navigator are identical 202-passenger ships measuring 286 feet long. Both feature 101 suites and staterooms across 5 passenger decks, 2 dining venues and 2 lounges, including Compass Lounge, the centre of onboard activity including entertainment and lectures.

These intimate ships were purposely built to navigate the locks and canals of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway. Itineraries include departures from Navy Pier (Chicago) to downtown Toronto (Ontario Canada) over 11 days, visiting all 5 Great Lakes along with voyages between Detroit MI and Montreal.

The vessels explore regions including the southeast USA and Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Diverse cultures in Canada and the U.S. through some of the most historic ports including Mackinac Island (Michigan) showcase a different perspective of New England. Port cities like Savannah TN and Charleston SC offer a glimpse into coastal southern living, all seen differently by a small-sized ship.
