FORT LAUDERDALE — Atlas Ocean Voyages has announced 34 new voyages for the summer and autumn 2023 season.
Covering four continents, the 7- to 21-night itineraries will sail aboard Atlas’ two newly constructed luxury small ships – World Navigator, launched in August 2021, and World Traveller, launching in October 2022. The season will kick off on March 26, 2023, with the World Navigator sailing in Africa, the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas, and World Traveller cruising Central and South America, the Caribbean, Western Africa, Western Mediterranean, Ireland and the British Isles, the Norwegian Fjords, Iceland, Greenland and the Arctic.
In total, Atlas is adding 60 new destinations for the season and will feature overnight stays in 46 individual ports.
“With World Navigator and World Traveller’s new 2023 voyages, Atlas Ocean Voyages continues to offer travellers more choices of luxe-adventure experiences in some of the world’s most fascinating places,” said Alberto Aliberti, President of Atlas Ocean Voyages. “Nearly all ports of call are non-repeating and provide travellers the opportunity to combine consecutive voyages for extended and in-depth regional immersions and save. Onboard, guests will enjoy Atlas’ signature casually elegant, all-inclusive style for a luxurious, once in a lifetime adventure.”
Here are some highlights of the season:
- After completing its second Antarctica season on March 31, World Navigator will sail eastward from Ushuaia, Argentina to Cape Town, South Africa, via the South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands and the very remote outposts of Ascension and Tristan da Cunha Islands in the South Atlantic. The ship will then head north along Africa’s west coast to the Canary Islands and Morocco before crossing the Strait of Gibraltar into the Alboran and Mediterranean Seas. The May 10 voyage includes two full days in Casablanca.
- World Navigator will offer a special eight-night Grand Prix voyage, departing May 21, featuring two nights in Monaco to catch the race. The ship will then retrace its course westward in early autumn through the Mediterranean and continue onward to Brazil and Argentina before arriving in Ushuaia on Nov. 9.
- Alternatively, World Traveller heads north from Ushuaia on March 26, along the Chilean and Peruvian coasts. Travellers can also opt for a Panama, Costa Rica and Nicaragua adventure with a 12-night itinerary departing April 28.
- World Traveller will also transit the Panama Canal and cruise the Southern Caribbean before crossing the Atlantic to the Canary Islands. From the Canary Islands, the ship features two 10-night voyages that combine the archipelago with Morocco. Both departures include overnights in Casablanca, but the June 6 voyage includes a call at Safi to access Marrakesh, while the June 16 voyage includes calls at Cadiz, Span and Portimao, Portugal. The ship then continues north to the British Isles, Ireland, Norwegian Fjords and Greenland for July.
- World Traveller will cross the north 66th parallel in August to offer multiple opportunities to see the Northern Lights, including three Arctic expeditions in Svalbard. Guests can also choose the subsequent Iceland circumnavigation voyage. The ship then charts a course southbound via the British Isles, Ireland, France and Spain to conclude its season on Oct. 16 in Lisbon.
