Strong and agile, Magellan Explorer has been developed from the ground up as the ideal platform for an Antarctic sailing cruise. Several international polar expedition experts have contributed to the design of the ship. Working with designers, engineers, and naval architects, they developed a wide range of technical solutions designed to enhance the expedition experience of guests.

The elegant interior spaces of the new vessel were designed by Enrique Concha & Co, a renowned interior design studio based in Santiago de Chile. Every detail, from colors to materials, to lighting, has been carefully selected to enhance the traveler’s experience. The result is a modern environment that provides comfort, style, and efficiency.

Suites & Cabins 

Five different accommodation categories are available to guests. Accommodations are spacious, ranging in size from 40 sq. mt. (440 sq ft) to 20 sq. mt. (220 sq ft.). All suites and most cabins offer a private balcony. Sleeping arrangements can be configured as either one king-size bed or two twin beds, in most cases.

Maximum passenger capacity for air cruises is 73 and 100 for small ship expedition cruises.

Amenities & Services

Public areas include a spacious forward-facing observation lounge and bar that is also used to deliver briefings and educational presentations. The bow of the ship is accessible to guests; together with the outdoor observation deck, it offers expansive views and close contact with the natural environment during exploration.
