(1:02 p.m. EST) -- When Atlas Ocean Voyages' first cruise ship, World Navigator, debuts in mid-2021, it will feature an array of cabins that range in size from 183 to 466 square feet, including 10 one-bedroom suites. Ninety percent of staterooms will have balconies.
"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 will offer 98 suites and staterooms, all with ocean views. Each will feature a stocked mini-fridge, multiple USB ports, 110V and 220V outlets, deluxe bath amenities, a hairdryer, plush robes and slippers, and still and sparkling water replenished twice daily.
The centerpiece of each standard room (ie, non-suite) is a queen-sized bed that can be separated into two twin beds. The beds will each face an oversized, interactive flat-panel screen. Each room also includes a desk with chair, while the Horizon and Veranda category cabins add in a sitting area with a plush loveseat and coffee table.
In-cabin bathrooms feature spa showers with rain showerheads, handheld showerheads and four adjustable body jets apiece. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand soap and hand cream will be provided by L'Occitane.
Among the stateroom categories that will be available are:
Adventure Stateroom: There will be 12 of these 183-square-foot rooms, which offer cruisers a view through a large picture-frame window.
Veranda Stateroom: These 269-square-foot rooms will be the most traditional balcony cabins on the ship.
Horizon Stateroom: Also 269 square feet, these rooms will feature a floor-to-ceiling glass wall with an upper panel that slides open to give the entire room an open-air feel. Similar to the Veranda Staterooms, the hybrid nature of these rooms gives them 23 percent more interior space.
Junior Suite: Two 300-square-foot junior suites will be available, one with a traditional balcony and one in a hybrid configuration.
Suite: 10 one-bedroom suites will be on offer, including the 382-square-foot Journey Suite, 466-square-foot Discovery Suite and 466-square-foot Navigator suite. Each features a double-wide 106-square-foot balcony furnished with sun loungers, teak chairs and tables large enough for al fresco dining. Inside, cruisers will find two closets, a living room and a bedroom, each with an interactive flat-screen TV. The Navigator and Discovery suites both offer dual sinks and a separated toilet, while the Navigator Suite also has a bathtub.
Atlas Ocean Voyages is a new cruise line that will offer what it calls "luxe-adventure" cruising to an English-speaking cruise market. The brand's first ship, World Navigator, opens for booking this month. In 2022 and 2023, World Navigator will be joined by sister ships World Traveller, World Adventurer and World Seeker.
