Atlas replaces Baltic cruises with Norway, London, Netherlands, France

On its new itineraries, World Navigator will be 'far removed from current global events,' Alberto Aliberti said
Atlas Ocean Voyages is replacing its Baltic itineraries this year with new western Europe voyages aboard World Navigator.

They include Norwegian Fjords and London, Netherlands and France voyages, departing in August and September.

Atlas was the first cruise line to drop Russia calls from its Baltic itineraries, however feedback from travelers indicated the Baltic was still concerning, according to a company spokesman. So, for peace of mind, the new itineraries were developed.

They feature multiple overnights in culture-rich ports, giving opportunities for extensive tour options. Because of its small size, World Navigator will navigate up narrow waterways and rivers to dock in the center of Amsterdam, London, Antwerp and Bordeaux.


Travelers can take advantage of up to $6,000 savings per suite or stateroom aboard these new voyages, or any 2022 and 2023 voyages and expeditions, when making a new deposited booking from now until June 30, 2022.

'World Navigator’s new late-summer voyages bring travelers to the Norwegian Fjords and western Europe at one of the best times of the year,' said Alberto Aliberti, president of Atlas Ocean Voyages. 'These port-intensive itineraries feature multiple overnights in some of the region’s most sophisticated destinations far removed from current global events.'

From Hamburg to the Norwegian Fjords

On the new 12-night Norwegian Fjords voyage, departing round-trip Hamburg on Aug. 26, passengers will visit Norwegian fjords including Sognefjord, the country’s largest fjord.

Overnights in the heart of London

The subsequent 12-night Hamburg to London voyage, departing Sept. 7, overnights at Amsterdam and London, and calls at Antwerp, Honfleur (for Paris) and Plymouth, UK. In Amsterdam, passengers have the opportunity to visit the once-in-a-decade Floriade horticultural exhibition. Additionally, World Navigator will cruise up the Thames to dock at the Tower Bridge overnight.


Departing Sept. 19, a 13-night cruise from London to Porto, Portugal, overnights in Amsterdam, London, Honfleur and Bordeaux. At Bordeaux, in the heart of one of France's most renowned wine regions, passengers will also have the chance to take a tour to the Normandy beaches with their World War II history.
