Atlas Ocean Voyages has confirmed the addition of a fifth ship, taking the company’s total fleet of “Luxe-Adventure” cruise vessels to five by 2023. Formerly known as Mystic Cruises USA, the cruise line’s maiden ship, World Navigator, is currently under construction and set to launch in mid-2021.
Bookings opened for World Navigator late last year, at which time Atlas Ocean Voyages stated its intention to also launch sister ships, World Traveller and World Seeker next year, and World Adventurer in 2023. The newly announced fifth ship, to be known as World Discoverer, will also debut in 2023.
“Luxe-Adventure is all-inclusive, small-ship journeys with luxurious amenities, delivering limitless adventures, and we look forward to welcoming guests aboard our ships for unexpected discoveries, foodie immersion, and unique, adrenaline rushes,” said Alberto Aliberti, President of Atlas Ocean Voyages.
“The immediate and positive response from the travel advisor community and early sales of World Navigator‘s inaugural 2021 season has played an important part in our decision to increase our capacity.”
World Navigator‘s inaugural season includes seven- to 15-night sailings throughout the Holy Land and Eastern Mediterranean, Western Mediterranean, and the Black Sea.
The fleet expansion will allow Atlas Ocean Voyages to offer more itineraries in more global regions to accommodate the growing demand for the brand’s distinctive, Luxe-Adventure journeys.
“The four additions to our Luxe-Adventure fleet will allow us to significantly expand our collection of global adventures and offer more group and charter opportunities to meet growing demand,” said Brandon Townsley, Vice President of Sales and Trade Partnerships.
“We’re combining smooth sailings in simple elegance to both remote and popular destinations with off-the-chart, bucket list-worthy shoreside and overland experiences that will be the most incredible journeys ever. We welcome all travel advisors to join the Luxe-Adventure movement and register as an Atlas Advisor at AtlasOceanVoyages.com,” Townsley added.
