SunStone clients include Aurora Expeditions, with one of the new ships designated as the Greg Mortimer and Aurora MD Robert Halfpenny recently confirming a second new ship for the firm ( CW 25 Oct).
Other Infinity vessels will go to Victory Cruise Lines and Albatros Expeditions, while the long-term charterers for some ships have not been named.
