Cruise Travel Agency/Operator:
Mitsui O.S.K. Cruise Lines
The turning point for Japan's cruise industry came in 1989 with the launch of Fuji Maru. This 23,340-gt ship can carry up to 600 passengers in a level of luxury unparalleled by any previous Japanese vessel. The elegantly appointed Fuji Maru features such amenities as a sky lounge, salon, dining room, theatre, and swimming pool. As cruise vacations gained popularity among Japanese travellers, a sister ship, the Nippon Maru, joined the fleet the following year. These two advanced vessels offer the flexibility to meet the diversifying demands of the market.
