After launching its first ship, World Navigator, Atlas Ocean Voyages has unveiled the inaugural season for its second expedition ship, World Traveller.
Launching on July 15, 2022, at Lisbon, Portugal, World Traveller is set to deliver more exciting experiences and captivating destinations.
For her inaugural season, World Traveller will sail 11 voyages, ranging from six to 12-nights, and visit a combination of chic and historic destinations throughout the Mediterranean, Adriatic, Ionian and Aegean seas.
In nearly all destinations, World Traveller’s small size allows her to dock in or closer to port centres for guests’ greater convenience.

Two voyages combine Greece and Italy’s southern Mediterranean coast.
