FORT LAUDERDALE — Albatros Expeditions has announced the arrival and takeover of its newest vessel, Ocean Albatros.
Having arrived in Tromsø, Norway earlier this month, the state-of-the-art ship held a pre-cruise to Longyearbyen for its first guests on June 15. From then on, it will depart on voyages to Svalbard, Iceland and Greenland as part of its 2023 Arctic season.
Søren Rasmussen, Founder and Chairman of Albatros Expeditions, who sailed on the pre-cruise, said: “The vessel was delivered to us on June 10, 2023 and we have been onboard for the past few days. It looks like the vessel is absolutely perfect for these conditions – very stable and performs great. We are just preparing to welcome our first guests onboard and I look forward to hearing what they think of Ocean Albatros, but I have very high expectations.
Ocean Albatros is the sister ship of Ocean Victory. Both vessels are specially designed to reduce their carbon footprint and minimize their environmental impact, boasting fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.
In addition, Ocean Albatros is equipped with the latest technology, safety and navigation equipment, as well as spacious cabins elegantly furnished in a Scandinavian style. Its team of experienced expedition leaders, naturalists, photographers and wildlife experts are tasked with creating and immersive and educational experience onboard for all guests.
“We are thrilled to welcome the Ocean Albatros and embark on new voyages this Arctic season,” said Greg Carter, CCO of Albatros Expeditions. “With the new vessel’s eco-efficient technology, the once-in-a-lifetime experiences that our dedicated and passionate team will provide, and the superior comfort that the Ocean Albatros affords our passengers, we are confident that we are offering our guests an adventure of a lifetime, while also ensuring the sustainability of this remarkable region.
