Victory Cruise Lines’ third ship, the Ocean Victory, is headed to Alaska. The cruise line, which was acquired by American Queen Steamboat Company earlier this year, has released new details on the upcoming ship, as well as what guests can expect from its Alaska itineraries. 

The Ocean Victory will have a capacity of 200 guests, with 93 suites, 68 of which will have balconies, nine that will have French balconies and 16 that will have panoramic windows. The crew count will be 100. Other onboard amenities will include two restaurants, an open-deck dining area, observation and lecture lounges, a piano bar, a library, a gym, a spa and a swimming pool with a pool bar and a jacuzzi. 

The ship will also incorporate an X-bow design and Rolls Royce Zero Speed Stabilizers for smoother sailing, as well as a dynamic positioning system that will allow the ship to maintain its position without an anchor, allowing for more flexibility and lower environmental impact during landings. The ship will also be small enough to dock in many of the state’s less-accessible ports.

The ship will set sail in Alaska starting in May 2021 on a program of 20 seven- to 10-night sailings that will extend through September. Bookings are set to open this July. More details on ports of call will be announced at a later date.
