Atlas Ocean's World Traveller Sails in Antarctica for Inaugural Season

Atlas Ocean’s World Traveller Sails in Antarctica for Inaugural Season

Atlas Ocean Voyages will debut its newest Explorer Class ship this November, World Traveller. The ship will make her debut with a series of Antarctica sailings and is the sister vessel to the World Navigator.

The brand-new World Traveller is built for the explorer. She will have 94 staterooms and weigh in at 10,000 gross tons with six decks and an array of amenities for the adventurous cruiser.


World Traveller will also feature state-of-the-art technology to provide once-in-a-lifetime expeditions with responsible citizenship in mind. This includes a hybrid power management and propulsion system from Rolls-Royce. The system maximizes fuel efficiency, consuming one-fifth of the fuel used by conventional cruise ships.

Onboard are two hydro-nets that propel the ship at a near-silent cruising speed of five knots. Not only does this help protect the environment, but it allows the ship to get closer to marine wildlife. In addition, the ship features a GPS-based Dynamic Position System, enabling the ship to position itself without the use of anchors that can harm the ocean floor.

The ship offers a number of eateries and lounges as well as a fitness center, a theater, a spa and sauna, pools and hot tubs, a sundeck and a jogging track.

The onboard experience is all-inclusive and includes gourmet cuisine, with five included dining options. Alcoholic beverages are also included allowing guests to share a drink and with “like-spirited” travelers. Gratuities are pre-paid and comprehensive emergency medical and travel insurance is also included in the fare. This includes COVID interruption.

Also included is a private charter jet service between Buenos Aires and Ushuaia for Antarctica expeditions, which is where World Traveller will begin sailing, and between Oslo and Longyearbyen for Arctic cruises.

Guests exploring Antarctica with Atlas Ocean Voyages also receive a complimentary parka for their voyage as well as the use of binoculars and knee boots. Excursions ashore are also included in the cruise fare.
