Japanese cruise brand Mitsui Ocean Cruises has unveiled the first month of cruise itineraries for its new ship, Mitsui Ocean Fuji.  

The 32,000gt ship will make its debut on 1 December 2024 when it sails from Yokohama to Tokyo in Japan on a seven-night voyage. The ship will call at Beppu and Shimonoseki in Japan, and Busan in South Korea along the route. From 8 December, the ship will sail three roundtrip itineraries, the first of which is from Yokohama and will call at Shingu and Kochi in Japan and Busan. This will be followed by a five-night trip from Nagoya in Japan, calling at Busan and Takamatsu in Japan, and a five-night voyage from Kobe, calling at Busan and Matsuyama, Japan.  

Mitsui Ocean Fuji will sail from Kobe to Yokohama from 23-29 December, before embarking on an 11-night New Year’s roundtrip cruise from Yokohama, calling at Jeju, South Korea, and Busan, and Nagasaki, Beppu and Hiroshima in Japan. This cruise will include a new year’s party, entertainment and celebrations. 

“With Mitsui Ocean Fuji showcasing our unique new product and featuring exciting new itineraries and ports of call, the inaugural season is not to be missed,” said Tsunemichi Mukai, president of Mitsui Ocean Cruises. “We invite you to be the first to sail and experience our beautiful new ship that captures the essence of Japan, the diversity of its deep culture, the praise of delicious cuisine and the beauty of its natural landscapes, people and destinations. The launch of this new cruise brand and ship is a very proud moment for the Mitsui OSK Lines’ Group. It puts us on the map as a growing player in the cruise industry.” 

The six inaugural cruises will visit Beppu, Shingu, Kochi, Takamatsu, Kagoshima, and Jeju and Busan in South Korea
