MOL Cruises Announces its new cruise line brand name "MITSUI OCEAN CRUISESSM", ship name "MITSUI OCEAN FUJISM" and an Around-the-World Cruise

MITSUI OCEAN FUJI will be MOL Cruises' second ship in addition to Nippon Maru. Passengers on board can experience the combination of Japanese high-quality "Omotenashi" service and hospitality with and western luxury hardware on MITSUI OCEAN FUJI. MITSUI OCEAN CRUISES also announced that MITSUI OCEAN FUJI will embark on an Around the World Cruise in the April 2025. The all-suite cabin-based cruise ship was purchased from Seabourn Cruise Line Limited in March 2023 (note 1).

The Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Group created its new management plan, "BLUE ACTION 2035" in March 2023, to diversify its portfolio to offset commercial shipping volatility. To this end, it will focus heavily on the cruise business, which is a stable and profitable industry that is not affected by the same market conditions. Specifically, we will expand our travel business and the base of international customers, including inbound, in addition to domestic customers, by launching several new cruise ships in the future (note 2). This will contribute to the improvement of the Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Group's corporate value and the realization of the Group's vision.


This brand name expresses Mitsui's pride in realizing the history of Japanese shipping and hopes for a future that begins with the blue ocean.
