Atlas Ocean Voyages announced Monday it’s providing travelers a complimentary pre-cruise tour with every new booking aboard World Navigator’s inaugural season voyages in summer 2021. Additionally, travelers who book an Atlas “Max Shore” sailing will enjoy both the complimentary pre-cruise tour, as well as the included “Max Shore” overland adventure. “Max Shore” voyages are select, consecutive itineraries that include a complimentary two- to five-night, mid-voyage overland tour.
For its inaugural summer 2021 season, World Navigator will sail seven- to 24-night itineraries, and guests enjoy a total of 12 complimentary pre-cruise tour itineraries spread across 10 departures in The Holy Land, Black and Mediterranean Seas, and South America. Some departures offer two pre-cruise tour options, while departures from Athens (Piraeus), Greece, Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy, and Lisbon, Portugal, will offer guests three options. On these voyages’ pre-cruise tours, guests can revel in the Ukrainian capital city of Kiev; survey antiquities found in the Jordanian desert; explore the beauty of Greece’s Peloponnese region; visit some of Tuscany’s best vineyards; immerse in Lisbon’s city culture; journey to Manaus in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest; and more.
In addition to the new complimentary pre-cruise tours offer, Atlas’ “All Inclusive All the Way” also provides guests a more worry-free experience by including emergency medical evacuation insurance for all guests, as well as complimentary round-trip air travel, prepaid gratuities, premium wine and spirits and international craft beers, coffees and smoothies, Wi-Fi, L’Occitane bath amenities, shore excursions in select ports, and “Michelin-inspired” dining. In every stateroom, guests enjoy binoculars to use on board, en-suite coffee, tea and personalized bar service, and butler service in suites.
Following its inaugural summer 2021 season, Polar Category C- and Ice Class 1B-certified World Navigator will sail Antarctica expeditions in winter 2021-22. Atlas’ World Navigator construction is on schedule and will be followed by World Traveller and World Seeker in 2022 and World Adventurer and World Discoverer in 2023.
