SunStone CEO, Niels-Erik Lund, commented, “We are very pleased with the high quality, design solutions and equipment packages. We are looking forward to continuing the relationships with all our partners in the Infinity-Class project and, even considering the COVID-19 world crisis, we are moving forward at very satisfactory speed, safety and quality level.”

The Launching Ceremony of the OCEAN ODYSSEY (CMHI 196-5) took place at China Merchant Heavy Industries in Haimen, China. The Vessel will sail worldwide year-round expedition cruises for Vantage Travel.

Ser ut til at det kun blir bygd seks av denne serien på ti skip?

Dvs at nr. 7 "Ocean Infinity" ikkje blir bygd samt at opsjoner på nr. 8, 9 og 10 ikkje blir erklærte...
