I’m over 2020. This year could have been great, but here we are. As we all try to navigate our lives through a global pandemic, we find ourselves wondering, “what is next?” I for one am looking forward to 2021 and all the beautiful travel it will bring, which is why this news from Atlas Ocean Voyages is so welcoming.
The Luxe-AdventureSM cruise brand has recently unveiled its inaugural winter 2021/22 Antarctica-season itineraries. Starting November 19, 2021, the World Navigator vessel, Atlas Ocean Voyages’ newest expedition ship, will embark on 15 LuxpeditionSM journeys where it will transport adventurers to the Southernmost Continent, Patagonia and the South Georgia and Sandwich Islands. Cruisers will be astounded by their close encounters with penguins, seals, whales, and other Antarctica wildlife; wonder at the undisturbed vistas and breathtaking icebergs; and so much more.
“Travel is transformative, and there is no region in the world as awe-inspiring as Antarctica. Adventurers, explorers and like-spirited travelers can now plan their late-2021, all-inclusive voyage of a lifetime to the Southern Continent. And the best way to fully experience this unique region is aboard World Navigator, our safe, small, clean and green, expedition ships.”
– Alberto Aliberti, President of Atlas Ocean Voyages

Adventurers and like-spirited travelers can choose from a dozen round-trip, winter 2021/22 departures on nine-night journeys from Ushuaia, Argentina, to the Antarctic Peninsula. Guests will sail through Neptune’s Bellows and land inside Deception Island’s caldera; visit the Argentine and Spanish research stations; and see Chinstrap Penguins. Guests also will step onto Antarctica proper at Brown Bluff (Paulet Island as an alternate) at the northern tip of the peninsula, and make landings in Neko Harbour or Paradise Bay, and Cuverville Island or Goudier Island, in the Gerlache Straight.
Two longer journeys, each a distinctive, 12-night, round-trip itinerary from Ushuaia, expand guests’ Antarctica adventure. The November 28, 2021, journey will bring guests within the umbra of the Moon on December 4, for a rare, Antarctic-solar eclipse of the sun. Guests also visit the South Shetland Islands, Paulet Island and Brown Bluff, as well as make three landings in the South Georgia and Sandwich Islands. On the February 2, 2022, departure, guests visit all the planned landings as the nine-night itinerary, plus navigate across the Antarctic Circle in pursuit of marine wildlife-spotting for two additional days. Guests will be able to see Antarctic wildlife closer from World Navigator’s Water’s Edge Lookout, the lowest expedition ship’s bow observation area in the industry and the only one with wrap-around, heated benches for extended time out on deck.
World Navigator also will embark on an eight-night Argentine Patagonia and Falkland Islands itinerary, departing November 11, 2021, from Montevideo, Uruguay, to Ushuaia. Guests call at Buenos Aires, Puerto Madryn and Port Stanley, U.K. and explore one of the world’s most diverse ecosystems to catch sightings of sea lions, seals, whales, dolphins, and up to five distinct penguin species – King, Magellanic, Gentoo, Rockhopper and Macaroni – along the way.
