AUSTRALIS launches the ventus at the end of the world

When it comes to exploring the most remote corners of the earth, Australis gets the job done better than anyone else. With over twenty-five years in the market, the cruise company has built a reputation as the ultimate Patagonian experience. 


The Australis cruises literary sail to the end of the world, formally known as Cape Horn. Through this southernmost itinerary, which allows disembarkments with Zodiac boats, the passengers will be able to scout all the important sites of these virgin lands. From the Magellan Narrow to the Beagle Channel, Australis offers different excursions that cover all the wonders of Patagonia.

But, leaving generalities aside, the big news is that the Australis fleet has a new member:  the Ventus Australis, which will be setting sails for the first time this January. The Ventus was built at Asenav, internationally known Chilean shipyard. It has one hundred cabins, each one with a private bathroom and a panoramic view of the ocean. Passengers will be able to choose between three different cabin categories, nonetheless, the only difference lays in the space and not in comfort.

But, even though the rooms are really comfortable and have a magnificent view, most people prefer to relax outside. Among the many conveniences that the Ventus offers, there is a bar, a restaurant, and several lounges and relaxation areas where passengers can get to know each other, yet enjoying comfort and space. Australis also provides several on board entertainment options, such as a library filled with material on the flora and fauna of the region, as well as different board games. The crew is also in charge of organizing lectures for those interested in learning more about the characteristics of the area.

The service also includes international level gastronomy with thematic buffet lunches. You can take a tour through the flavors of Italy one day, and visit Japan on the next, just to give an example. For dinner, there is a la carte menu that will provide delicious options each day.

To guarantee that passengers enjoy this trip to the fullest, the Ventus, as well as the other Australis cruises, has a permanent crew of sixty-six members, including a special team of Patagonia experts that will lead passengers through the different expeditions providing details of the flora, fauna, and geological conditions of the area.

A lot more can be said about the conveniences of this cruise, but there is no doubt that the star here is the journey itself. This experience will allow you to grasp this mysterious sanctuary in the most profound way. Let yourself be surprised by the wilderness and get on board for an adventure that will stay with you for life.
