World Navigator and World Traveller offer the perfect combination of adventure and luxury on an Antarctica expedition,” said Alberto Aliberti, President of Atlas Ocean Voyages. “Atlas focuses on boots-on-the-ground and feet-in-the-water expeditions that travellers may have waited a lifetime to experience. With Atlas, travellers can start at the top of their bucket list for an immersive and transformative expedition to Antarctica.”

On World Navigator and World Traveller‘s Antarctica expeditions, guests can expect up to two outings from the ship daily, depending on weather and sea conditions. The ships’ Captains monitor onboard weather and underwater sensors and meteorological forecasts to plan for safe passage and harbors for guests to go ashore or enjoy waterborne safaris aboard zodiacs to sight marine wildlife and iceberg formations, as well as opted for kayaking and paddleboarding.

World Navigator will offer 13 Antarctica departures beginning on 9 November 2023. Guests can choose from nine- and 11-night itineraries that focus on the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula. Participants will enjoy four days exploring Antarctica on the nine-night voyages while the 11-night voyages offer six days cruising the region and cross into the Antarctic Circle to earn membership in the Order of the Blue Nose. Both itineraries also include a scenic cruise by Cape Horn, Chile, the southernmost point of South America.

At the end of the season, World Navigator will embark on 15 March 2024 for a special 14-night itinerary that combines the Falkland Islands and the South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands. There, guests will have opportunities to catch sightings of the thriving marine wildlife that have grown accustomed to warmer climes, including the King Penguin. The itinerary also calls at Punta del Este and Montevideo, Uruguay, and concludes with an overnight in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

World Traveller brings the explorers on 13-, 16- and 20-night immersive expeditions that offer a combination of the Antarctic Peninsula, the South Shetland Islands, Diego Ramirez Islands, Falkland Islands, and South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands. Nearly all World Traveller expeditions in Antarctica include a passage through the Lemaire Channel, considered one of the most dramatic Antarctic landscapes ever travelled and venture across the Antarctica Circle.

World Traveller also offers two unique trans-Atlantic crossings to bookend her Antarctica season. The 12-night, westbound itinerary departs 24 October 2023, from the Canary Islands, Spain, to Recife, Brazil, via Western Africa, with calls at Dakhla, Western Sahara; Dakar, Senegal; and Banjul, the Gambia. To conclude her season, World Traveller departs on 13 March 2024 from Ushuaia to Cape Town, South Africa on a 19-night voyage. Guests enjoy two days in the Falkland Islands, three days in South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands, and three days in Tristan da Cunha, the world’s most remote inhabited archipelago located deep in the Southern Atlantic.

World Navigator launched in August 2021, and World Traveller will debut in November 2022. Both ships feature 98 suites, solo suites with no single supplements, and staterooms. Three additional sister ships, World Seeker, World Adventurer and World Discoverer, will join the fleet through 2024.
