Atlas Ocean Voyages-Made for Next-Gen Explorers
Atlas Ocean Voyages’ premier, small expedition-style ship, World Navigator, perfectly embodies their luxe-adventure travel experience, which is the ideal balance of simple elegance with invigorating adventures. And it all happens aboard a vessel purpose-built for navigating remote ports in highly sought destinations.
Small Ships, Mega Journeys
World Navigator – one of the smallest, new expedition-style ships with up to 172 guests – allows for a more intimate atmosphere on board and off ship. With fewer crowds, you have the chance for more personal, fuller experiences, giving you the opportunity to immerse yourself in your adventures. World Navigator also brings you closer to your destination and into more remote ports only navigable by small ships, so you can head straight into your explorations.
Atlas Ocean Voyages brings explorers to hidden gems in iconic destinations, as well as to destinations less visited, and there are few places as remote as Antarctica. Atlas is taking guests to unparalleled adventures to the Seventh Continent in Winter 2021/2022. Their expeditions bring travelers closer to The White Continent for once-in-a-lifetime experiences, like a special sailing that takes them into the Scotia Sea at the height of a reverse, total solar eclipse that happens only once every 400 years. With an Atlas Antarctica expedition, guests also have the chance to cross the Antarctic Circle and earn their place in the Order of the Red Nose. Traversing the Antarctic Peninsula, South Shetland Islands, South Georgia and Sandwich Islands, Atlas’ Antarctica itineraries give travelers the chance to immerse themselves in this destination less traveled.
Atlas Ocean Voyages continues their luxe-adventure travel experiences into Spring/Summer 2022 with new destinations in the British Isles, Arctic, Iceland and Greenland, Norwegian Fjords, Central and South America, Baltic, Mediterranean and more. With opportunities to check a few items off your bucket list, like a glimpse of the Northern Lights or golfing across the United Kingdom, their new 2022 destinations promise to fill your next travel year with one-of-a-kind moments.
A Stand-Out Experience
Atlas Ocean Voyages aims to stand out from the crowd by enhancing what you already expect from luxury, expedition travel. That includes onboard indulgences like the first-ever, luxury spa at sea, SeaSpa by L’OCCITANE, only available on World Navigator. With signature treatments and products from the renowned L’OCCITANE en Provence, it’s a holistic pampering experience that encompasses the balance of mind, body and spirit that Atlas aspires to encourage. You will also enjoy L’OCCITANE bath amenities in your accommodations during your holiday.
They’re also the first and only expedition-style cruising brand to purchase an insurance plan that covers you while on your trip. This plan may provide coverage for transportation expenses for an Emergency Medical Evacuation along with Repatriation expenses, up to the Maximum Benefit Amount of $250,000 and a Baggage and Personal Effects benefit up to $100. It’s how Atlas offers peace of mind, so you don’t have to worry and can fully enjoy your travels.
Atlas is always striving to bring you closer to your destinations, even when on board. On board World Navigator from Water’s Edge Lookout – the only small ship to feature a deck like this – you sit just 30 feet above the water, giving you plenty of opportunities to spot wildlife sailing alongside as you make your way from one port to the next. It’s also the perfect spot to watch the horizon as you approach your next destination. And you can do it all in absolute comfort, as Water’s Edge Lookout also has heated seating.
Fulfilling their promise of all-inclusive travel, Atlas is the only travel brand to offer complimentary, non-stop private charter jet service to Ushuaia from the U.S. for every Antarctica expedition. Aboard an A330 Air Bus, you’ll be pampered with exceptional service, first-rate cuisine, and premium wine and spirits. It’s the luxuriant life at 35,000 feet, including escorted guidance through Customs upon landing in Ushuaia.
All Inclusive All The Way
Atlas takes every aspect of your journey into account, including roundtrip air travel to all destinations, a choice of complimentary land excursions in every port, unlimited premium pours and six dining options with locally inspired gourmet cuisine on board...plus everything in between.
Part of the luxe-adventure experience includes what you can do on shore and off ship. With Atlas Ashore, Atlas Ocean Voyages offers a carefully curated selection of adventures made with every kind of traveler in mind. Whether you prefer to wander and take in the history and culture of your destination or want to challenge your mind and body to exhilarating excursions, their land programs have something made just for you. That includes a choice of complimentary land excursions at every port to give you more to explore.
While an expedition to Antarctica is an adventure in and of itself, Atlas Ocean Voyages offers even more opportunities to explore your destination with incredible off-ship excursions. The Seventh Continent is a dream destination for fans of aquatic sports with chances to kayak, paddle and stand-up paddle across its pristine waters. If you’re looking for a challenge, you can opt for hiking and snowshoeing across the snowy shores. Atlas even offers opportunities to join and contribute to scientific research in Antarctica, an excursion perfect for the curious mind. And all activities take place alongside expedition experts, providing you the guidance necessary to enjoy your experiences to the fullest.
Atlas Ocean Voyages believes exploring the world is for everyone, so they’ve taken a few steps on board to help do their part to keep it going today, tomorrow, and for generations to come. They’re limiting the use of guest-facing, single-use plastics and providing still and sparkling water in reusable water bottles daily to every room.
World Navigator realizes the possibilities of environmental stewardship with the latest hybrid power management and propulsion system, maximizing fuel efficiency and consuming as low as one-fifth the fuel compared to conventional cruise-ship systems, reducing Atlas’ impact on the environment. They also aim to help preserve the unspoiled beauty of their destinations, so they minimize underwater noise that stresses marine wildlife by using a hydro-jet propulsion system, allowing World Navigator to cruise virtually silent up to five knots for incomparable, up-close encounters while keeping the sensitive ecosystem in mind. To prevent damage to the fragile ecosystems on ocean floors, Atlas avoids using anchors to maintain ship position by using a GPS-based Dynamic Position System.
Life on Board World Navigator
When sailing on World Navigator with Atlas Ocean Voyages, you experience casual luxury. Exclusively offering only Balcony and Suite accommodations, each with a private bath and premium L’OCCITANE amenities, Atlas creates a relaxed atmosphere that invites you to take it easy. That also includes their Solo Suites, the most spacious accommodations at sea for solo travelers. Their six onboard dining options offer culinary experiences with locally inspired gourmet cuisine and an atmosphere that invites you to connect with like-spirited explorers. You can get to know your fellow travelers in spaces like Atlas Lounge and The Dome observation lounge, where you can enjoy unlimited premium pours and craft cocktails. For a holistic approach to health and well-being, stop in at the Fitness Studio or engage in a yoga or Pilates class on deck. World Navigator is purpose-built for the full luxe-adventure experience.
The Future of Atlas Ocean Voyages
World Navigator is only the beginning for Atlas Ocean Voyages. Joining their sister ship by the end of 2023 are four more small, expedition-style ships: World Traveller, World Seeker, World Adventurer and World Discoverer.
