M/V Stella Australis

The 200-guest Stella Australis is a modern expedition cruise ship equipped with the latest navigation and safety technology. Cruising in Chile’s famed Patagonia region, she features a spacious open top deck for admiring the spectacular southern scenery, as well as a gift shop, game room, infirmary and small library. Three lounges are styled with modern audiovisual equipment for the most engaging naturalist lectures and Vegan Travel activities.

Travel + Leisure World’s Best 2016 winner, placing first in the Small Ocean Ship category. Small enough to navigate the stunning fjords of Patagonia but large enough for perks some other expedition vessels don’t have (there’s a gym onboard!), this expedition vessel wows passengers with knowledgeable local guides, great onboard lectures, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.


The best seat in the house has had an upgrade. With plush, luxurious furnishings and an exclusive, private setting, this is the Chef’s Table experience guests know and love, only better.
