Sunstone Ships has held a steel cutting ceremony for its fifth Infinity-class ship, Ocean Odyssey, at China Merchants Heavy Industries’ shipyard in Haimen, China.

The vessel will be 104 metres long, with capacity for between 130 to 200 passengers. She will be Ice Class 1A and Polar Code 6, and will feature the X-Bow hull design by Ulstein Design & Solutions.

“We are very pleased with the quality and high building standards of China Merchants Heavy Industry, which are fully at the level of European Shipyards,” said Niels-Erik Lund, CEO of Sunstone Ships. “We are looking forward to continuing our relationships with all our partners in the Infinity-class project and we, even considering the Covid-19 world crisis, are moving fast forward as planned at very satisfactory speed, safety and quality level.”

Ocean Odyssey will be delivered in 2022, after which she will operate year-round expedition cruises around the world for Vantage Travel.
