Atlas Ocean Voyages has released a preview of the suites and staterooms onboard its first oceangoing ship, the World Navigator, which is due to launch in 2021. The ship will have 98 suites and staterooms, all exterior with an ocean view and most with a private veranda.
Guests will be able to 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 will include a stocked refrigerator, 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.
Nearly 90 percent of the ship’s accommodations will include verandas, including the 269-square-foot Horizon stateroom, which will have 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 offers 23 percent more interior space than the traditional 269-square-foot Veranda staterooms. 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.
The ship will also have 10 one-bedroom suites. The Journey Suite will have 382 square feet of space; the Discovery Suite, 445 square feet; and the Navigator Suite, 466 square feet. All suites will also have a double-wide, 106-square-f00t veranda, furnished with sun loungers, teak chairs and tables. Each suite includes two closets and the living room and bedroom each include an oversized, interactive flat-panel television, as well as all the amenities found in the other stateroom categories. Additionally, guests will be able to choose from two Junior Suite configurations, one with an 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 have spa showers walled with mosaic tiles. Guests can choose one or a combination of rain shower, handheld showerhead and four adjustable body jets. Shampoo, conditioner and body wash will be by L’Occitane, part of the cruise line’s partnership with the French beauty brand, and there will also be L’Occitane handwash and hand lotion at the ceramic vessel sink, which sits atop a rich, wood-grain veneer cabinet. The Navigator Suite and Discovery Suite both have his-and-hers sink and a separate water closet, while the Navigator Suite has a bathtub.
Atlas Ocean Voyages’ first ship, World Navigator, will open for booking in December 2019, and start sailing in mid-2021. In 2022 and 2023, World Navigator will be joined by sibling vessels World Traveller, World Adventurer and World Seeker.
