ANNOUNCING MV MAGELLAN EXPLORER A BRAND NEW EXPEDITION VESSEL, TO THE ANTARCTICA XXI FLEET!

It’s with great excitement to announce the addition of MV Magellan Explorer, a brand new expedition vessel, to the ANTARCTICA XXI fleet!
MV Magellan Explorer is being built in Valdivia, Chile. The ship will be delivered to ANTARCTICA XXI for the 2019-20 Antarctic season. MV Magellan Explorer is the first small passenger ship purpose built for Antarctica in the last 14 years. Commitment to the small-ship model, capacity will continue to be limited to a maximum of 70 passengers per Antarctic air-cruise departure, with each departure fed by a single flight.
The ship features 50 passenger cabins in five categories of accommodation, including dedicated single cabins. The cabins are very spacious, ranging in size from 40 m2 (440 sq. ft.) to 20 m2 (220 sq. ft.). All double cabins have two twin beds that can be configured as one queen-size bed. 42 cabins feature a large window and a private balcony, while 8 cabins feature a porthole. 16 adjoining cabins can be configured as 8 two-environment suites to offer the most spacious accommodation. All cabins feature a private bathroom and a sitting area.
Public areas include a large forward-facing observation lounge that is also suitable for the delivery of briefings and presentations, an observation deck, a dining room that accommodates all guests and expedition staff in a single sitting, two meeting rooms, a gift shop, a protected outdoor barbecue area, a gym, and a sauna. The bow of the ship is accessible to offer expansive views during exploration. Adventure activities, such as kayaking and snowshoeing, will be available.
