Magellan Explorer

See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Magellan Explorer

A custom-built expedition vessel designed for Antarctic cruises, Magellan Explorer – named after the famed explorer, Ferdinand Magellan - offers the utmost comfort during adventures into the wild.

There is capacity for 73 passengers onboard and a wide selection of cabins to choose from, ranging from the Cabins - available with single, twin, double and triple beds, to the spacious and luxurious Suites. All the cabins come with a comfortable sitting area and an en suite bathroom and most also feature private balconies, to soak up the stunning surroundings as they drift by.

In the main dining room, enjoy delicious dishes throughout the day - a hearty breakfast buffet in the morning, a tasty lunch accompanied by premium Chilean wines, and table service for dinner. When weather permits, outdoor barbeques are enjoyed on the deck, while the bar is the perfect spot for a nightcap on colder evenings.

There is a variety of polar activities to keep you busy during your voyage including kayaking, hiking and snowshoeing. Afterwards, return to the ship and cosy up in the communal spaces; from the window-filled observation decks, where you can listen to educational presentations, to the snug library, stocked with literature about Antarctica and the indulgent spa complete with a gym and sauna.

Why We Love It

Learn about the region during your voyage with a browse of the library (stocked with Antarctica literature) and a front-row seat in the window-filled observation deck for an educational presentation.
