Atlas Ocean Voyages unveiled plans for the World Navigator’s suites and staterooms Thursday, aiming to provide comfort and casual elegance.
The World Navigator, launching in 2021, will offer 98 deluxe suites and staterooms, all exterior with an ocean view and most with a private veranda. Travelers can choose from seven general categories of accommodations, ranging from the 183 square foot Adventure Staterooms to the ship’s signature one-bedroom, 466 square foot Navigator Suite. All suites and staterooms feature European-inspired décor, modern technological conveniences, and a stocked refrigerator. The rooms also contain deluxe bath amenities, hairdryer, plush robes and slippers, digital safe, daily make-up and turndown service, still and sparking water – replenished twice daily – and ample storage.
“When guests return to World Navigator after a day of adrenaline-pumping Atlas land adventures, their suites and staterooms will be an intimate and stylish retreat that reinvigorates the body and renews the spirit,” said Alberto Aliberti, President of Atlas Ocean Voyages. “World Navigator and her luxe amenities also will provide alluring and lively venues for guests to come together and share their day’s exploits. Throughout their Atlas voyage, guests will delight in engaging and personal service from every member of our exceptional staff and crew.”
Nearly 90 percent of the ship’s accommodations include verandas, including the 269 square foot Horizon stateroom, which features a floor-to-ceiling glass wall with an upper panel that slides open to make the entire room a veranda – a concept first developed by parent-company Mystic Invest Holding for river cruise ships. The Horizon staterooms’ living room-veranda hybrid design also offer 23 percent more interior space than the traditional 269 square foot Veranda staterooms, though both deliver breathtaking vistas in the open air, whether guests are adventuring in the Black Sea and Holy Lands or exploring Antarctic waters. Twelve Adventure Staterooms also offer guests a view of the ocean and passing landscape through a large picture-frame window.
The centerpiece of each stateroom is a queen-size bed that can be separated into two twin beds facing an oversized, interactive flat-panel screen, providing an expansive line-up of live and on-demand television, movie, music and audio programming, as well as Bluetooth connectivity for smartphones and tablets. Each stateroom also includes a desk with chair, while the Horizon and Veranda staterooms offer a sitting area with a plush loveseat and coffee table. For cameras, phones, tablets and other electronic devices, five USB ports and five 110V and 220V outlets are placed strategically throughout the room so guests have options for where they would like their devices to rest while charging.
For those preferring more space, World Navigator also offers 10 one-bedroom suites: The 382 square foot Journey Suite, the 445 square foot Discovery Suite, and the 466 square foot Navigator Suite.
All suites also feature a double-wide, 106 square foot veranda furnished with sun loungers, teak chairs and tables to enjoy private, al fresco dining or relaxation. Each suite has two closets and the living room and bedroom each include an oversized, interactive flat-panel television, as well as all the amenities found in aforementioned stateroom categories. Additionally, adventurers also can choose among two Junior Suite configurations, one with exterior veranda and the other with the floor-to-ceiling Horizon window that opens to make the entire 300 square foot suite into a veranda.
All of World Navigator’s in-room bathrooms feature spa showers walled with mosaic tiles. Guests can choose one or a combination of rain shower, handheld shower head and four adjustable body jets. Suites include shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand wash, and body lotion by L’Occitane, part of the cruise line’s partnership with the iconic French beauty brand. The Navigator Suite and Discovery Suite both offer his-and-hers sink and a separate water closet, while the Navigator Suite is accentuated with a bathtub.
Atlas Ocean Voyages is a new luxe-adventure cruise brand. Its first ship, World Navigator, will open for booking in December 2019, and start sailing in mid-2021. In 2022 and 2023, the World Navigator will be joined by sister-ships World Traveller, World Adventurer, and World Seeker.
