Recently, I had the opportunity to join Atlas Ocean Voyages on a luxe-adventure expedition. It was a once-in-a-lifetime journey to a destination I longed to explore: Antarctica! There are no words to describe this vast continent of stunning, quiet beauty. An Antarctica expedition is an experience like no other! Our all-inclusive “floating base camp” was Atlas’s new Explorer Class ship, World Navigator. With just under 100 suite or balcony accommodations and six exquisite dining options, World Navigator offered an intimate, sophisticated ambiance where we could unwind and reflect
Destination Highlights – My “Wow” Moments
The other-worldly beauty of Antarctica is staggering; the landscape of massive blue ice took my breath away. And the wildlife! Antarctica is home to land and sea creatures not found anywhere else on earth, including several species of unique (and adorable!) penguins.
During our 9-night voyage, we saw most of the Antarctic Peninsula in the shortest number of nights. Our Captain sailed to the best areas for exploration and wildlife viewing, adding to our daily sense of surprise and adventure.
The World Navigator Expedition Team accompanied us on zodiac tours and land excursions. They guided us to the optimal sightseeing locations and shared their in-depth knowledge about the fascinating wildlife we encountered. A few of our highlights:
Wedding on Ice
Imagine exchanging vows against a backdrop of icebergs, glaciers, and penguins. Atlas Ocean Voyages ran a promotion for our February 14 Valentine voyage called “Atlas Ever After, the Most Adventurous Weddings on Earth.” We were invited to attend a Game of Thrones Ice Wedding! There were three wedding ceremonies during our voyages, but this was the most adventurous.
