World Traveller

Our Ship Review
Deal Expert / Travel Blogger

Launched in 2022 in the Mediterranean, World Traveller is the second polar-class ship in the Atlas Ocean Voyages fleet and a twin to 2021’s World Navigator. Carrying 196 guests, she has expanded the horizons for what Atlas is calling “luxe-adventure” cruising to “destinations less traveled.” The Fort Lauderdale-based company is a subsidiary of Portugal’s Mystic Invest Holding, which operates river cruise line DouroAzul and other brands, and is staffed by executives with decades of experience at cruise lines. 

What We Love

The Balconies and Picture Windows:  The ship offers exclusively balcony and suite accommodations in seven categories, ranging from 183-square-foot Solo Suites with a large picture window and a mosaic-tiled spa shower to 465-square-foot one-bedroom Navigator Suites with a spa shower and bathtub plus a 106-square-foot veranda. Noteworthy are the 269-square-foot Horizon Staterooms, which feature a floor-to-ceiling glass wall with an upper panel that slides open to make the entire cabin a veranda. Atlas’s Porto-based parent company originally developed the concept for its DouroAzul river ships. 

The World-Spanning Itineraries: Whether they're seeking expedition cruises to tick destinations off their bucket list or more relaxing respites focused on cultural or epicurean pursuits — market visits, wine tastings, or cooking demonstrations — World Traveller can take guests from Antarctica and the Arctic to the Mediterranean, the British Isles and Northern Europe and Iceland & Greenland.

Design That’s Not Fussy:  Laid-back elegance is the brand’s design mantra, and using a blend of classic and contemporary styles — a touch of Art Deco in muted greens, blues, and neutrals in the staterooms and panoramic lounge — combined with a heated pool and whirlpools and restaurants featuring regionally-inspired gourmet cuisine, Atlas has created a soothing environment for its luxe-adventure brand.

Best Known For

A Focus on Sustainability: Like a growing number of cruise lines, Atlas has banned single-use plastics aboard its ships. also benefits from the latest hybrid power management and propulsion system that consumes as little as one-fifth of the fuel of conventional cruise ship systems. And with its alternate hydro-jet propulsion, it can quietly cruise up to five knots without disturbing sensitive marine wildlife. 

Who It's Best For

Authenticity Seekers: Atlas describes its intended cruise clientele as “low-key connoisseurs in search of authentic cultural experiences and once-in-a-lifetime journeys.” And 423-foot-long World Traveller is built to deliver that with a 1B-Ice Class-certified hull and custom-designed Zodiac MilPro Mark V inflatable boats to ferry passengers ashore in even the remotest locales.

Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

All-Inclusive Luxe-Adventure Has a High Price Tag: Yes, it’s all included — accommodations, food and premium beverages, gratuities, complimentary excursions in select ports, and more — but Atlas cruise fares might be above some budgets. They start at $6,000 per person for a seven-night voyage in the Mediterranean and can start as high as $12,000 per person for a 14-night Antarctic itinerary.
