Newly built in 2018 and designed specifically with polar cruising in mind, the beautiful World Explorer is one of our newest ships.

Decked out with panoramic windows, a glass-domed observation lounge, bar, restaurant, dedicated lecture theatres and even an on board running track, the World Explorer has everything you need to enjoy every minute of your time in the Antarctic (plus those extra creature comforts to take your voyage to the next level).
