Atlas Ocean Voyages is a small ship, luxury adventure cruise brand designed for seasoned and fun-seeking travellers to immerse in active and awe-inspiring experiences in less-trodden, bucket list destinations.
For her inaugural season, World Navigator will embark on seven- to 24-night itineraries in The Holy Land, Black and Mediterranean Seas, followed by nine- to 13-night itineraries in the Caribbean, South America and on Antarctic expeditions for winter 2021/22.
Atlas’ newly constructed, safe, clean and green, small expedition ships foster a refined and convivial ambience and can accommodate up to 196 guests. World Navigator construction is on schedule and launches in July 2021, followed by World Traveller and World Seeker in 2022 and World Adventurer and World Discoverer in 2023.
Earlier this month, World Navigator was floated out at the West Sea Viana shipyard in Portugal where the ship is being constructed. Her sister expedition ship, World Atlas, also had her keel laid at the same shipyard.
