The Ventus Australis offers a state-of-the-art experience and has been specially-designed to be able to navigate the narrow fjords of Patagonia, to explore remote areas that previous cruise ships have been unable to reach in the Tierra del Fuego.

Sail through the wide Straits of Magellan and the Beagle Channel, between Punta Arenas in Chile to Ushuaia in Argentina, round the infamous Cape Horn. The voyage takes you past iridescent blue icebergs, immense glaciers and a breathtaking coastline teeming with wildlife including penguins, sea lions and elephant seals.

The ship has 100 cabins and will carry a total of 210 passengers, as well as boasting excellent dining facilities and a number of lounges offering plenty of space to relax. Each communal area has been exceptionally well designed to offer amazing views of the seascapes you pass through.

These large windows are present throughout the ship and ensure that wherever you are, you need not miss a thing.
