Atlas Ocean Voyages’ new World Voyager yacht has officially joined the fleet, following a naming ceremony in Ushuaia, Argentina.
The 198-guest expedition yacht is the third vessel in the line’s expedition fleet and will now begin its inaugural deployment for the 2023-24 Antarctica season.
“Today marks another important milestone for Atlas Ocean Voyages as our fleet grows to a trio, delivering year-round polar, epicurean and cultural expedition experiences across the globe,” said President and CEO James A. Rodriguez. “Thank you to [Godmother Preet Kaur Chandi] for inspiring all of us and the entire Atlas team that continues to execute our vision of year-round expedition yachting.”
The shipboard ceremony was presided over by Rodriguez, who introduced World Voyager’s officers and crew, including Captain Terje Ulset. The ship then embarked on its maiden voyage, a nine-day Antarctic Discovery expedition.
World Voyager joins Atlas’ two other luxury yachts, World Traveller and World Navigator, in expeditions sailing to Antarctica on nine- to 14-night round trips from Ushuaia, Argentina. Atlas includes a pre-cruise hotel stay in Buenos Aires and roundtrip charter air service from there to Ushuaia.
Expeditions include a free cultural immersion tour, all Zodiac experiences, landings ashore, and all-inclusive amenities on board. Kayaking and camping activities are available as optional experiences.
The ship is among the most advanced and safest expedition yachts. The Polar Category C- and Ice Class 1B-certified vessel features two Rolls Royce hybrid diesel/electric engines and incorporates 3D forward-looking sonar technology to detect underwater hazards, obstacles, and shallows.
World Voyager’s Nordic chic design accentuates light ash wood tones and contrasts of marble accents throughout accommodations and social spaces. 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 Madeira, as an homage to the Portuguese archipelago. The lecture hall where Expedition Team members host illustrated enrichment talks is named Amerigo Vespucci Auditorium after the famed explorer. In addition to her Atlas navy blue livery, she features the popular 7-Aft Grill, Atlas Lounge, the forward-facing observation Lounge, The Dome observation lounge, and Paula’s Pantry.

A diverse crop of new ships will set sail in 2024, including intimate yacht-style vessels to never-before-seen mega ships from luxury players like Silversea and Cunard.

Some are sister ships to those already on the waters, but with enough points of difference to feel like something entirely new—including the soon-to-be-sailing largest ship in the world, from Royal Caribbean, of course.
