Mitsui Ocean Cruises has revealed the new names of the dining, entertainment and wellness spaces onboard Mitsui Ocean Fuji, inspired by the culture and cuisine of Japan, in a video tour of the ship.

The Restaurant Fuji, Mitsui Ocean Fuji’s main restaurant, will offer a full-service dining experience featuring chef-curated menus, Japanese cuisine and international dishes. Terrace Restaurant Hachiyo is named after the eight peaks at the summit of Mount Fuji, and will offer a variety of global food offerings in an open space with ocean views. Furthermore, an omakase sushi menu will be available at night, while outdoor al fresco dining is also available.

Hokusai Fine Dining, meanwhile, is named after Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai, who created renderings of Mount Fuji. The venue will offer dishes specially curated by the chef using seasonal ingredients and presented in the style of fine dining restaurants. On the other hand, Poolside Restaurant Kohan will provide guests with a casual meal and beverage offering, inspired by the lakes of Mount Fuji. Finally, the Ocean Café will be a casual walk-up food and beverage offering located in the central Mitsui Ocean Square.

The ship’s lounges and bars will include Observation Bar 36, which will offer guests a panoramic view before or after dinner while drinking craft cocktails inspired by the changing seasons at Mt Fuji. The Ocean Club and Bar, meanwhile, will provide beverages alongside live music, lecturers and games.

Ocean Stage will be the main venue for entertainment, providing a stage for music, dance, drama and special events. The Ocean Casino will provide a space for guests to play blackjack and roulette.

Several health and fitness spaces will also be featured onboard Mitsui Ocean Fuji, including Spa and Wellness Kodama, where guests can receive massage and facial treatments, salon services, acupuncture, and more. The Fitness Center and Motion Studio will feature training equipment and a studio for yoga, pilates and more to support physical wellness. Finally, Recreation Raiko will provide a place on the top deck for guests to play games and sunbathe in the early morning.
