Atlas Ocean Voyages is where big adventures start small. We are the leaders with expedition cruising, delivering a luxe-adventure journey for the thrill-seeking traveler. What is a luxe-adventure expedition? It’s the exciting combination of high-end experiences onboard and high-adrenaline excursions on shore with cultural immersions in lesser-known destinations. In mid-2021, we set sail with World Navigator, a purpose-built Polar Category C and Ice Class IB vessel. Destinations that have been announced for 2021 include the Black Sea, Mediterranean, Holy Land, South America, and Antarctica. In 2022, World Navigator is scheduled to visit amazing new destinations such as the Caribbean, the Baltic, the Arctic, the British Isles, and the Mediterranean. Four more expedition ships are planned for release between 2022 and 2023.
We believe in helping guests check some items off the bucket list. From paddle boarding in secret coves of the iconic Aegean Sea to meeting the acquaintance of Gentoo penguins on the unforgettable coastlines of the Antarctic Peninsula, we provide once-in-a-lifetime moments. Get closer to the action, as our smaller ship carries just 196 guests. It is also equipped with a quiet, Rolls-Royce hybrid electric-hydro jet propulsion system. This allows us to bring guests up close and personal to the wildlife in less-frequented destinations, like the Tyrrhenian Sea. The system turns off the main engine and leaves only the propulsion system running, making it easy not to disrupt ecologically sensitive regions, like coral reef zones.
Aboard World Navigator, guests will find the quiet side of luxury with all-inclusive wellness amenities like a fully equipped health center, juice bar, and SeaSpa by L’Occitane*. Guests are also encouraged to share their accomplishments of the day during our signature AprèsSeaSM experience. AprèsSea HQ is mid-ship Deck 4, but we will mix it up throughout the cruise with pop-up locations as well. Think Mudslinger Night in the Mud Room, Hot Toddies in the hot tub or even Whale watching with Whiskey Sours at Water’s Edge Lookout.
Dining options include everything from menus inspired by our award-winning 2-star Michelin chef to casual meals at our poolside bar and grill. You may also choose al fresco dining on Deck 4 or a quiet meal served in the privacy of your suite. Take your choice of 98 suites and staterooms, most of which feature a private balcony or ocean view. These all-inclusive accommodations come equipped with everything guests could need, like a walk-in private bath, queen-size bed, state-of-the-art infotainment system in the living area, tea and coffee machines in the room, butler service, L’Occitane bath amenities, and so much more.
Our definition of luxury is less about the fancy perks and more about valuable experiences. It is all about stepping off the beaten path and embracing the wanderlust spirit. Welcome to the Atlas Ocean Voyages luxe-adventure experience!
