Albatros Expeditions has confirmed it will officially christen its second Ulstein X-Bow hulled ship, Ocean Albatros, on 7 May 2024 at Nordre Tolbod, in the heart of Copenhagen, Denmark – the birthplace of the family-owned company. The 169-passenger vessel has been in operation since May 2023.

Søren Rasmussen, Founder and Chairman of Albatros Expeditions said “Since 1986, with the establishment of Albatros Travel Group, our goal has been to create life-changing memories for our guests.

“With these modern, eco-conscious vessels, we are able to offer small-ship expeditions inspired by our Nordic heritage that are truly once-in-a-lifetime journeys. While we usually only traverse between Antarctica and the Arctic, we are looking forward to welcoming the Ocean Albatros to our hometown and celebrating with our family, friends, and partners.”

Guests of the ceremony will have the chance to step aboard Ocean Albatros for a guided tour. This firsthand experience will allow them to appreciate the elegant interiors and technical features that set this vessel apart. The day will complete with the traditional champagne christening on the bow, a moment of celebration as Albatros Expeditions officially welcomes Ocean Albatros into its fleet.

Albatros Expeditions has just opened up additional capacity in Antarctica aboard Ocean Albatros following the release of a previously held charter sailing. General sales are now open for the 18 day Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctica sailing, departing 4 January 2025. Details here.

Meanwhile, Albatros Expeditions’ on-again, off-again CEO, Hans Lagerweij, has recently departed the expedition company after another six-month stint in the role that commenced in July 2023. Since last month, Lagerweij is now the Interim CEO of the start-up, Positive Polar – a new science-driven expedition cruise company.

Rasmussen has taken on the CEO responsibilities at Albatros Expeditions until a new chief is appointed.
