Epicurean Expeditions by Atlas Ocean Voyages

Contact Your Cruise Travel Expert

From the ruins of Ephesus and historic ramparts of Ibiza, to Viking history in less-visited Haugesund, Norway, tap into your inner pioneer as you immerse yourself in a destination’s authentic culture and cuisine. Explore not only castles and ruins but also farmers’ markets, where you can shop for local spices, olive oils and other delicacies, or discover a new favourite bottle of wine to enjoy back on board or, if you can wait that long, at home. Each new experience indulges your senses, lends insight and inspires thoughts and interesting discussions.

With Atlas Ocean Voyages, your culinary adventures on board rival your discoveries ashore. The vision for this new cruise brand was conceived in Portugal, so the yachts' elegant main restaurants pay homage to that heritage with Lisboa restaurant aboard World Traveller and Porto aboard World Navigator. Here you’ll find indulgent breakfast and lunch buffets that change daily, offering everything from frittatas and pancakes to carving stations with roast beef, duck, lamb or pork. Five-course dinner menus showcase classic favourites such as Caesar salad, Black Angus tenderloin and grilled salmon among many others. Atlas’ well-travelled chefs take inspirations from a wide array of global cuisines and regional specialties when creating their ever-changing menus. And just like your shoreside travels, your culinary explorations on board are designed to engage all your senses. Relaxed and unhurried, each meal becomes another memorable experience to savour, while enjoying unlimited wines, premium craft cocktails and brews.

When not ashore exploring, spend pleasant European evenings dining outdoors at Alma Alfresco, an ode to the lines heritage, which showcases the gastronomic soul of Portugal with wine-paired dishes featuring authentic recipes passed down for generations and prepared using techniques that are the essence of Portuguese culinary culture. This dining option is being offered exclusively on Atlas' European Epicurean Expeditions.

Another exciting dining alternative is the 7-AFT Grill which in the evening transforms into an al fresco chophouse where the finest cuts of steak and fresh seafood are seared to perfection on a charcoal Josper grill. Don’t miss out on this exclusive Atlas experience.

Throughout your voyage, your days at sea and nights between explorations are spent in relaxed luxury with attentive service. After a day spent ashore, come back to a casual and friendly atmosphere and always included comforts.

Carrying just under 200 guests, World Navigator and her sister ship, World Traveller (launched in 2021 and 2022 respectively) encourage a holistic approach to life that incorporates mind, body and spirit. From appreciating the dining experience to keeping up with your exercise routine while on holiday, the on board atmosphere cultivates overall well-being in every aspect. Some of the most remarkable journeys are the ones taken inward so take the time to relax and enjoy your surroundings. During Après Sea, Atlas' twist on the post-slopes' tradition known as Après Ski, unwind with a craft cocktail, and connect with newfound friends and like-spirited explorers around you.


Follow the sun as your sleek ship navigates remote coves of the Greek Isles, the Italian and French Rivieras, Croatia, Spain, Portugal and the many other destinations the region offers. Explore UNESCO World Heritage Sites, castles, historic ruins and ancient cities, or enjoy pristine beaches and water sports directly from the ship’s marina. The choice is yours.
