Astro Ocean Cruises operates one cruise ship that sails in Chinese waters with solely Chinese National guests onboard. They employ an international crew and use V.Group / V.Crew as their exclusive hiring partner for recruiting.
Facts about Astro Ocean Cruises and Piano Land
Astro Ocean Cruises is a newly formed Chinese cruise line that caters to Chinese guests. The company is a joint venture between CTS (China National Travel Service Group) and COSCO Shipping (China Ocean Shipping), with V.Ships as the vessel manager. In August 2019, Astro Ocean Cruises purchased Oriana from Carnival Corporation’s P&O Cruises fleet and re-named her Piano Land. The ship was built in 1995 and is 69,000 GRT, carrying around 1,800 passengers and 760 crew.
Although the cruise industry has been on pause since March 2020, Astro Ocean Cruises has spent most of April to refurbish Piano Land. Interior upgrades new suites, a completely new HVAC system that allows 100 percent fresh air circulation.
