Orient Lines' New Ship

March 12, 2001

More Norwegian news: Orient Lines, the company's destination-oriented line, is getting a third ship: what's now called SuperStar Aries will join the fleet in 2002 (and will be renamed the Ocean Voyager). True to the line's style, this is an older, mid-size ship -- built in 1982 (and currently sailing in Asia for parent company Star Cruises), she weighs in at 37,000 tons and carries 650 passengers. That makes "Ocean Voyager" Orient Lines' smallest ship as Marco Polo (826 passengers) and Crown Odyssey (1,025 pax) are, well, bigger.
