South America

Three South America voyages start World Navigator’s new season, beginning on March 22, 2022, from Ushuaia, Argentina. These six- to 13-night cruises call at Brazil’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Paraty, Fernando do Noronha and Salvador de Bahia. On April 4, the ship heads trans-Atlantic to Tenerife.

Iberian and French wine cultures/Mediterranean rivieras

Four voyages in April, June and September immerse travelers in Spanish Andalusian, French Bordeaux and Portuguese Algarve and Douro wine cultures. World Navigator combines Casablanca’s (Morocco) with Portugal’s Algarve coast on a seven-night itinerary, departing Tenerife on April 17. The subsequent voyage, also seven nights, sails up the Guadalquivir River to call at inland Seville, Spain, and visits Gibraltar and Spain’s Costa del Sol.

World Navigator combines Bordeaux and the Douro Valley on the June 8 and Sept. 19 voyages, the first traveling the Thames to dock at London's Tower Bridge, while the second transits the Kiel Canal. Both voyages visit Honfleur, France, for excursions to Normandy’s beaches and Paris. Because of its small size, World Navigator can dock in Bordeaux’s city center.

In May, three cruises showcase destinations along the Spanish, French and Italian rivieras on eight- to 13-night itineraries. The first two turn around at Civitavecchia (Rome), with the May 1 voyage covering all three Mediterranean rivieras. The May 14 departure focuses on Corsica, the Amalfi Coast and Sorrentine Peninsula. The May 31 cruise embarks at Nice, France, traveling via Spain’s Catalonian Coast to Lisbon, Portugal.

Ireland and British Isles

British Isles and Ireland voyages afford golfers the opportunity to play at world-renowned courses at most ports of call on two 13-night itineraries, departing June 17 and Aug. 13. Stops include Ireland’s Cork, Foynes, Galway, and Kellybegs; Northern Ireland’s Londonderry and Warrenpoint; and Scottish Invergordon (Loch Ness) and Greenock. These voyages also include overnights at Dublin, Ireland; Belfast, Northern Ireland; and Leith (Edinburgh), Scotland.

Arctic expeditions

From the British Isles, World Navigator continues north to the Norwegian Fjords and further to Svalbard, with opportunities to view Artic wildlife such as polar bears. Weather permitting, travelers can kayak and glacier hike at the Monaco or Smeerenburg glaciers.

Baltic 'must-sees'

Two 12-night itineraries feature Baltic 'must-sees' such as Riga, Latvia; Tallinn, Estonia; Helsinki, Finland; Stockholm, Sweden; Gdansk, Poland, and St. Petersburg, Russia. Travelers on the Aug. 26 departure will transit the 61-mile Kiel Canal from Hamburg into the Baltic and overnight at St. Petersburg. The Sept. 7 round-trip from Kiel features two nights in St. Petersburg, with opportunities to take excursions to Moscow and cosmonaut training center Star City.

Caribbean, Central and South America

World Navigator closes the season with five voyages that access the Southern Caribbean, Andean cultures and Patagonia. Departing Barbados on Oct. 18, World Navigator will visit Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao, Colombia and Panama, while the subsequent sailing features a Panama Canal transit en route to ecoadventures in Costa Rica. The Nov. 5 voyage explores Ecuador and Peru, concluding with an overnight at Callao (Lima). The following Peru and Chile voyage also begins with a Callao overnight and features a visit to Pisco (Paracas Bay).

The season concludes with a 12-night Patagonia expedition through the Straits of Magellan from Valparaiso, Chile, to Ushuaia, Argentina, with opportunities to explore Tierra del Fuego. An overnight at Puerto Natalas gives access to Torres Del Paine National Park, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.
