The 400-passenger ship Club Med 2 is owned and operated by Club Med SA (fka Club Mediterranee) - a French corporation (part of Fosun Group) specializing in premium all-inclusive vacation packages to its privately-owned resorts worldwide. Club Med 2's sistership (Club Med 1) was bought by Windstar Cruises and renamed Wind Surf (1998).
The shipowner Fosun Group (officially Fosun International Ltd) is a 1992-founded, Shanghai-headquartered Chinese holding company incorporated in Hong Kong in December 2004. Fosun Group has offices in 16 countries and is one of China's largest privately-owned companies, with (2019 data) total assets USD 102,6 billion, revenue USD 20,7B, net income USD 2,1B. The corporation is Hong Kong Stock Exchange-listed (as SEHK 656) since July 2007. Fosun's businesses are mainly investing and managing in various companies (including joint ventures), as well as in private equity funds. Fosun fully- or partially owns companies in the industries of banking, insurance, asset management, entertainment (Cirque du Soleil), fashion (brands Ahava, Caruso, Folli Follie, Lanvin, Silver Cross, St John, Tom Tailor, Wolford), food and beverages, private hospitals, real estate, retail, tourism, among others.
