Atlas Ocean Voyages' new World Navigator enters service in Greece

The 196-passenger World Navigator was designed for all-inclusive, luxury adventures to remote destinations.
Amid the pandemic, a new brand is born as Atlas Ocean Voyages’ first, newly constructed expedition ship World Navigator embarks today on its maiden voyage from Piraeus.

The 196-passenger ship, built at Portugal's WestSea Viana, was designed for all-inclusive, luxury adventures to remote destinations.

'All Inclusive All the Way'

World Navigator will serve regionally inspired cuisine; unlimited premium wines and spirits, international beers and specialty coffees; and a choice of a complimentary land excursion at every port. Atlas’ 'All Inclusive All the Way' proposition also bundles in round-trip air travel and ground transfers.

World Navigator will be sailing seven- to 12-night Egypt and Greek Isles voyages for its inaugural summer season before repositioning via the Mediterranean, Caribbean and South America for nine- and 12-night Antarctica expeditions.

Latest Mystic brand

Mário Ferreira, chairman of Atlas parent Mystic Invest Holding, welcomed the ship.

'For more than 25 years, Mystic has grown from a single riverboat, offering day tours on the Douro River, to building and operating more than 60 river, ocean and expedition ships, which deliver authentic cultural experiences around the world,' he said. 'Atlas Ocean Voyages is the latest Mystic brand and embodies the company’s evolution of superior service, unforgettable experiences and luxuriously designed ships.'

Atlas President Alberto Aliberti added: 'We are proud to launch World Navigator and inaugurate Atlas’ distinctive luxe-adventure cruising for discerning, fun-seeking travelers.'


World Navigator's 98 suites and staterooms range from the 183-square-foot adventure staterooms to the signature one-bedroom, 466-square-foot Navigator Suite. In March 2022, the ship will introduce solo suites. All suites and staterooms are infused with European sophistication and technological conveniences, a stocked mini-refrigerator, L’Occitane bath amenities, slippers, robes and binoculars to use on board as well as Nespresso coffee. Suites offer butler service.

SeaSpa by L’Occitane

The SeaSpa by L’Occitane is the first luxury L’Occitane spa at sea.

The Atlas and Dome lounges will be the setting for entertainment, including performers, sing-alongs and cabaret. Movies, port presentations, live entertainment and lectures will take place in the Dom Henrique Auditorium.
