Sustainability and Technology Features

Under construction in Portugal, the World Navigator is a small expedition ship with clean, green features. Committed to preserving the waters, she employs the latest sustainability and conservation technologies. These include a hybrid power management and propulsion system maximizing fuel efficiency, with usage as low as one-fifth the amount of fuel compared to conventional cruise ship systems.

In addition, the World Navigator, along with her sister ships, will be utilizing underwater, forward-looking sonar, which will allow them to navigate harbor, coastal and the icy polar waters. The ships also have an alternate hydrojet propulsion system that lets them quietly cruise up to five knots without disturbing marine wildlife on up-close encounters.

Where the World Navigator will be Sailing

Atlas Ocean Voyages recently adjusted its inaugural-year deployment. The World Navigator is going to give U.S. and Canadian travelers a chance to embark on some adventures closer to home, with new Transatlantic, Caribbean and South American itineraries. And she will be bridging the Old and New Worlds.

On October 4, 2021, the World Navigator will be making a 13-night voyage from Lisbon, Portugal. Guests will enjoy calls at Madeira, Tenerife, St. Lucia and Barbados. Then on October 19, the ship will set sail from Barbados on a 10-night itinerary, which will involve an epic equatorial crossing, sailing via the north coast of South America to Recife, Brazil.

The World Navigator will depart on October 29 on a 13-night journey from Recife to Montevideo, Uruguay. Stops will include the Brazilian ports of Buzios, Paraty and Salvador de Bahia, one of South America’s oldest colonial cities, with overnights in Rio de Janiero and Itajai.

On the World Navigator’s November 11 departure from Montevideo, the eight-night itinerary includes a late-night stay in Buenos Aires, and then sails on to Patagonia’s Puerto Madryn and the Falkland Islands.

The World Navigator will then head towards Tierra del Fuego, where she will begin her winter 2021/2022 Antarctica expeditions.

Four Sister Ships to Join the World Navigator

Atlas Ocean Voyages’ World Traveller, World Seeker, World Adventurer and World Discoverer will join the fleet before the end of 2023. The company will then have five ships providing luxe-adventure journeys.
