The 198-guest expedition yacht, sister ship to Atlas Ocean Voyages World Traveller and World Navigator, begins her inaugural deployment for the 2023/24 Antarctica season following an October naming ceremony.

With the additional deployment of World Voyager, marking three expedition yachts for the 2023/24 Antarctica season, Atlas Ocean Voyages will now include a Fly and Cruise Expeditions option for the first time.

This offering includes air departures from Punta Arenas, Chile, expediting the Drake Passage crossing with direct charter flights to Chile's Eduardo Frei Montalva air base on King George Island, Antarctica.

Featured are two new five-day round trips from King George Island and four new one-way Drake expeditions of seven nights from King George Island or Ushuaia, Argentina.

The one-way expeditions include charter flights from Punta Arenas to King George Island and Buenos Aires to Ushuaia. Plus, guests will receive a complimentary pre-cruise hotel night on all expeditions and a post-cruise hotel night on all journeys ending in Punta Arenas.

In addition to the Fly and Cruise Expeditions, a collection of ten 9- to 11-night expeditions from Ushuaia will be offered. All expeditions will go on sale on Tuesday, May 16, at 9 am EST, with waitlist options available beginning today.

“Demand for our two expedition yachts in Antarctica surpassed all expectations, and we are delighted to add capacity for exploring the world’s seventh continent during the upcoming 2023 season,” said James Rodriguez, president and CEO of Atlas Ocean Voyages.

“As our valued travel advisor partners and guests request more year-round expedition experiences, we look forward to welcoming a third expedition vessel to the Atlas Ocean Voyages fleet a full year earlier than originally planned.”

World Voyager is among the most advanced and safest expedition yachts like her Atlas fleet mates.

The Polar Category C- and Ice Class 1B-certified vessel features two Rolls Royce 9,000 kw hybrid diesel/electric engines and incorporates 3D forward-looking sonar (FLS) technology to detect underwater hazards, obstacles, and shallows.

The state-of-the-art system enables the ship to navigate ice fields, harbors, and rivers for convenient access to city centers, exclusive yacht harbors, and rarely visited destinations.

Originally delivered in 2020, plans call for World Voyager to undergo a style refresh before joining the Atlas fleet. She will debut with elegance and sophistication reminiscent of the Scandinavian style.

This Nordic chic design accentuates light ash wood tones and stylish contrasts of marble accents throughout accommodations and social spaces.

Such attention to detail creates an open and airy atmosphere that invites explorers to unwind in a warm, comfortable atmosphere on board.

Spacious suites and staterooms offer five-star comfort and convenience and feature traditional maritime design cues like rich wood veneers complemented by contemporary furnishings and classic artwork.

The ship’s main dining room will be renamed Madeira as an homage to the breathtaking natural settings, crystal-clear waters, and centuries-old traditions of the Portuguese archipelago.

Similarly, the lecture hall where Expedition Team members host illustrated enrichment talks will be named Ferdinand Magellan Auditorium after the famed explorer.

In addition to her new Atlas navy blue livery, the existing lido grill will become 7-Aft Grill, the main lounge will be renamed Atlas Lounge, the forward-facing observation Lounge will become The Dome, and the popular “grab and go” dining venue will transform into Paula’s Pantry.
