The new World Traveler for 200 passengers just been delivered Y High Ocean Voyages already gives details. The ship was designed to evoke the aesthetic of a luxurious coastal vacation home or superyacht. The intimate vessel was created by Arthur Miranda Y Jacques Beck of the award-winning oitoempontobased in Portugal.
“The designers have done an incredible job of capturing the spirit and atmosphere of a mega yacht or high-end residential property. There isn’t a space in World Traveler that hasn’t been touched by design.” James Rodriguez, President and CEO of Atlas.
From rich blue and white fabrics to sumptuous custom furnishings with hints of terracotta, green and slate, the ship’s décor is warm and inviting, yet sophisticated and stylish. The furniture and lighting have been strategically placed to evolve during the journey. For example, there are cozy corners and many tables for two, which are often coveted by couples. But as the journey progresses, the spaces can be transformed to accommodate groups of six or more so guests can be more personable and share the experience with new friends.
“World Traveler was conceived to celebrate La Dolce Vita of sailing aboard a luxury private yacht. Our intention was to design a visually impressive ship, but at the same time, offer a very high level of comfort for guests”, said Miranda.
While the public rooms and lounges are impressive, the accommodations are equally noteworthy. Corridors were conceptualized for dramatic effect before entering suites and staterooms, which are hidden behind a door lined in navy blue leather.
World Traveler accommodations are all ocean view; almost 90% have terraces. Four Navigator and two Discovery Suites feature two closets, flat-screen TVs in both the living room and bedroom, double vanities, and a separate water closet. Navigator Suites also have a bathtub. There are four huge Journey Suites and the 10 terraces are furnished with sun loungers, teak chairs and a table.
Horizon Staterooms feature a unique floor-to-ceiling glass wall with a top panel that opens to make the entire room feel like a terrace, a concept first developed by parent company Mystic Invest Holdings.
Staterooms feature a pull-out queen-size bed, digital safe, robes and slippers, hair dryer, binoculars, and a well-stocked refrigerator. They also include a desk with chair, while Horizon and Veranda staterooms have a sitting area with a loveseat. Bathrooms have mosaic-tiled spa-like showers with rainfall and handheld showerheads and four adjustable body jets. Toiletries include shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body wash, and hand lotion from iconic French beauty brand L’Occitane de Provence. Housekeeping replenishes sparkling and still water twice a day and offers make-up service.
The televisions offer live and on-demand TV programming, movies, music and audio, as well as Bluetooth connectivity for tablets and smartphones. In addition, the designers strategically placed USB ports and electrical outlets (110V and 220V).
