A look inside the upcoming Ocean Victory

Sleek, contemporary interiors, two restaurants, multiple lounges, a spa and a large percentage of balcony staterooms characterize Ocean Victory.

This newbuild, under construction in China for SunStone Ships, will be chartered by Victory Cruise Lines for its first Alaska season, starting in May 2021.

68 of the 93 suites have full balconies

The 104.4-meter vessel, with capacity for 200 passengers and 100 crew, will offer 93 suites — 68 with balconies, nine with French balconies and 16 with panoramic windows.

Besides two restaurants, there will be an open-deck dining area. Public rooms include observation and lecture lounges, a piano bar, library, spa and Jacuzzi, gym and heated outdoor pool. An aft platform will facilitate adventure activities.

Vancouver-Sitka itineraries

Ocean Victory will feature ‘Discover Beyond Alaska Expedition Adventure Cruise’ itineraries, with a 10-night sailing from Vancouver, BC, to Sitka, and an 11-night sailing from Sitka to Vancouver.

Victory Cruise Lines, which currently operates a pair of coastal ships, Victory I and Victory II, is part of the American Queen Steamboat Co. family.

Ocean Victory is scheduled for delivery in September 2020 and will go on charter to Albatros Expeditions for the Antarctica season before transferring to Victory Cruise Lines for its inaugural Alaska deployments.
