CHARLOTTE – Atlas Ocean Voyages

Atlas Ocean Voyages is a premium cruise line we are proud to represent. They profess that “Small is the New Big”. They are a new line that tried to launch just prior to Covid, slowed the grand opening a tad, and are now full steam ahead. They are best known for the itineraries, which are crafted to provide “immersion” above all. Sailing from the British isles to Antarctica, they bring a world of exploration with a luxury touch. The owners are of Portuguese heritage and that really shows in the chef’s menus. They offer a dinner menu that includes “Alma”, meaning soul, that brings home Cooked front and center. L’Occitane Spa, 3 bars, an in-room bar to your specifications, Live Entertainment, aDome Observation Lounge, and a Heated Seating Perch on exploration cruises. Complimentary Private Jet Service in Antarctica, Complimentary Parka, unlimited dining and beverages, premium shelf drinks, pre-paid gratuities, and complimentary Insurance round out the WOW factor.
