2021 will mark a new milestone for Victory Cruise Lines with a brand new exploration ship, Ocean Victory, set to debut, allowing the North American lakes and coastal line to offer deep-nature, all-inclusive expedition voyages in Alaska for the first time.
Built expressly for remote and polar exploration and sporting a swept-back X-bow that promises a smoother ride, the deluxe, eco-friendly Ocean Victory will take just 200 guests to more rugged, distant and less visited reaches of Alaska, with closer encounters with the State’s wild scenery and animals.
The hi-tech, clean-fuel ship will boast a spectacular, aft-facing infinity pool, jacuzzi, two restaurants, panoramic observation lounge overlooking the bow, library, fitness centre and spa, piano bar and 93 staterooms – all with ocean views and 79 per cent with private balconies. Set for completion in late 2020, Ocean Victory will also carry 20 Zodiac craft, a fleet of kayaks and a team of naturalists, marine biologists, scientists and historians.
To mark the debut of Ocean Victory, Australian small ship specialist, Cruise Traveller, which represents Victory Cruise Lines in Australia, has released a special new 15-night ‘Alaskan Victory’ fly, cruise and stay package to Alaska, with departures in July, August and September, 2021.
