Mitsui Ocean Cruises is to sail five new itineraries in 2025 onboard its new 458-guest Mitusi Ocean Fuji, which is scheduled to debut in Yokohama, Japan, in December 2024. 

Mitsui Ocean Fuji will sail four shorter cruises before embarking on its ‘Grand Asia’ itinerary. From 10-24 April the ship will sail two eight-day roundtrip spring cruises from Yokohama. The first voyage will visit Yeosu in South Korea and Nagasaki and Ibusuki in Japan, while the second voyage will call at Jeju in South Korea and Hakata and Sukumo in Japan. 

From 24 April to 5 May, the ship will sail the 12-day roundtrip ‘Golden Week’ cruise from Yokohama around Japan, calling at Ofunato, Hakodate, Aomori, Miyazu, Hamada and Busan in South Korea. Mitsui Ocean Fuji will then sail its Unesco World Heritage Sites roundtrip cruise from 5-13 May, calling at Hofu, Sasebo, Shimonoseki and Toba in Japan, and Yeosu in South Korea.  

The 66-day ‘Grand Asia’ cruise will call at 24 ports in 10 countries between May and July. The roundtrip from Yokohama, Japan, includes overnight stops in Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam, Laem Chabang in Thailand, Singapore, and Darwin, Australia, as well as port calls to Ishigaki in Japan, Penang in Malaysia, Phuket in Thailand, Benoa in Bali, Keelung in Taiwan, and more. 

“Our new ‘Grand Asia’ cruise offers an incredible opportunity to explore many famous and exciting destinations in the Asia region, bringing guests funatabi - beautiful encounters with Japan,” said Tsunemichi Mukai, president of Mitsui Ocean Cruises. “We will also celebrate ‘Golden Week’ in style on our new, beautiful all-suite vessel visiting treasured ports in Japan.” 

These five itineraries replace Mitsui Ocean Cruises’ previously scheduled world cruise, which has been cancelled due to the uncertain situation in the Suez Canal region and in the interest of the safety of passengers and crew.
