Embark on an unforgettable travel experience with Atlas Ocean Voyages and discover incredible destinations with one of the world’s best small-ship cruise operators.
Founded in 2019, Atlas Ocean Voyages is a relatively new cruise line that operates three custom-designed, intimate vessels: World Navigator, World Traveller and the new World Voyager. Focusing on three distinctive styles of cruising: classic ocean, expedition, and epicurean, Atlas Ocean Voyages offers a diverse collection of itineraries with enough choice and variety to suit even the most experienced traveller. Whether you’re looking to indulge your taste buds on an all-encompassing culinary tour of the southern Mediterranean or set sail on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to Antarctica, Atlas Ocean Voyages will take you there in unrivalled style and comfort.
What’s Included with Atlas Ocean Voyages?
Atlas Ocean Voyages not only provide one of the best small-ship experiences at sea, but they also offer incredible value for money. When you book an Atlas cruise, you’ll benefit from a range of complimentary inclusions, including:
- Dining in a choice of restaurants
- Unlimited beverages, including an open bar throughout the ship, teas, coffees, and afternoon tea service
- Complimentary shore excursion in every port
- 24-hour room service (Butler service in suites)
- Reusable water bottle
Expedition cruises to the polar regions with Atlas include a private charter jet service on selected itineraries, excursions and sightseeing trips by Zodiac, private group transfers, pre/post hotel stays (where required), and a complimentary parka and gilet.
What’s It Like Onboard?
Freedom of choice is at the heart of the Atlas Ocean Voyages experience. There are no obligations to participate in group activities, nor will you find any formal nights. Instead, you can catch up with like-minded travellers, enjoy the idyllic spa facilities, or simply retreat to your sumptuously appointed stateroom or suite.
With a choice of staterooms and suites available, the accommodations on an Atlas cruise provide a luxurious haven following a busy day exploring ashore. All categories benefit from spacious ensuite facilities with L’Occitane amenities, a living space, and a private balcony or large panoramic window.
Dining with Atlas is a real experience, with every meal made using the freshest ingredients – most locally sourced – by the ship’s resident chefs. Pick up a light bite in the European-style Paula’s Cafe, treat yourself to the authentic tastes of Portugal in Alma al Fresco, or enjoy the incredible surroundings and delicious cuisine served in the ship’s main dining room. Alternatively, relax poolside with a sandwich or burger from the 7-Aft Grill, or take in Afternoon Tea in The Dome Observation Lounge.
Health & Wellness
How do you make a luxury cruise even more relaxing? You provide access to one of the best spa facilities at sea. Atlas is the first and only cruise operator to partner with L’Occitane, so you can expect to enjoy a range of pampering treatments in the stunning SeaSpa. Those with a keen eye on fitness will love the fully-equipped fitness suite, while nothing can beat taking a dip in the pool when the sun is at its warmest.
Social Spaces & Lounges
The social hubs of the Atlas cruise experience, the distinctive lounges provide stylish decor, comfortable seating, and incredible bar service day and night. You’ll always find somewhere to sit back and relax, from the grand Atlas Lounge to the cosy Zephyr Lounge. On an expedition voyage, head to the ship’s bow and watch for breaching whales and stunning icebergs from the viewing area positioned just 30 feet above the waterline.
What’s It Like Ashore?
Every day on an Atlas cruise provides many new opportunities to explore, whether calling at an iconic city like Rio, Rome, or Edinburgh or hiking a glacier in Antarctica. The ship’s size means your itinerary will always be varied, and there’s a high possibility you’ll see several hidden gems you’ve never seen before.
Free Cultural Immersion
Every voyage features a complimentary shore excursion in each port. Atlas calls this their Cultural Immersion program, and as such, you can spend your time ashore in various ways. Over 500 excursions are available, from visiting local markets to guided tours of historic sites and wine tasting.
Available on selected itineraries in the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, and the British Isles, the Epicurean Excursions program provides curated tours designed to highlight culinary traditions and cultural highlights. For instance, visit Elba and learn to make pesto, sample cheese and wine in La Coruna, or enjoy coffee and cake while touring the Roykstovan, a 900-year-old farmhouse in the Faroe Islands.
Excursions on polar voyages with Atlas are entirely different. Instead, the captain will use his knowledge and the ship’s technical innovations to navigate to locations with abundant wildlife or areas where the conditions are ideal for kayaking or paddleboarding. At other times, the expedition team will lead guests on Zodiac trips or hikes across the tundra and awe-inspiring glaciers.
Atlas Ocean Voyages Ships
World Navigator, World Traveller, and World Voyager have been purpose-built for Atlas Ocean Voyages. The interiors are intimate, airy, and radiant, with little touches in keeping with Atlas’ take on casual luxury. The exteriors are sleek and elegant, with dark blue hulls guaranteed to turn heads in the most glamorous ports and harbours. Both ships are equipped with double hulls and are polar-class rated, making journeys through the Arctic and Antarctica safe and comfortable.
Environmentally conscious travel is of the utmost importance to Atlas Ocean Voyages. For sustainability purposes, the ships are hybrid power-managed to reduce emissions and to allow for near-silent cruising so as not to disturb nearby wildlife. In addition, the yachts boast advanced waste management systems, with all litter stored onboard until it can be disposed of safely.
Atlas Ocean Voyages Itineraries 2024/2025
Throughout 2024, Atlas Ocean Voyages will visit many of the world’s most captivating cruise destinations. You’ll find a range of itineraries to popular regions like the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, and the Arctic throughout the summer and autumn, with new extended itineraries allowing for more overnight stays in cities like Seville and Copenhagen. In the winter, Atlas offers voyages to exotic destinations like South America, including along the Amazon River, in addition to a series of expedition cruises to Antarctica.
For 2025, Atlas has introduced a new series of polar expeditions, with over forty dedicated Antarctica itineraries aboard World Voyager, World Navigator, and World Traveller. These include fly-cruise itineraries, which give you the option of avoiding the Drake Passage. When the fleet’s time exploring The White Continent draws to a close, the ships will head north to South America and across the Atlantic, bound for spring and summer in European destinations like the Mediterranean and the Arctic.
