The world`s fastest cruiseship is set to sail into Piraeus harbour on Wednesday and be officially launched by Greek President Costis Stephanopoulos.

The Olympic Voyager, the latest and most significant addition to Royal Olympic Cruises` (ROC<.>) fleet, was built at the Blohm+Voss shipyards in Hamburg. It is the first of two vessels ordered by the firm and represents a revolution in the shipping sector, particularly as it is able to reach a speed of 30 knots. The second vessel is due to be delivered in April next year.

The Olympic Voyager weighs 25,000 tons, measures 59 feet in length and 48 feet in width and has a service speed of 28 miles. Passengers will be able to stroll across its six decks and enjoy a swim in its pool, which measures 7,500 square feet. The ship can carry 480 passengers and its staff will number 340.

The Olympic Voyager`s cruises have been named Cruises through three continents. With the first departing on June 24, the seven-day cruises will leave from Piraeus at 4pm and stop at Istanbul, Kusadasi, Patmos, Rhodes, Haifa, Alexandria, Mykonos and return to Piraeus at 6am the following Saturday. They enable guests to visit three continents, namely Europe, Asia and Africa, and four countries.
