Deluxe Class Boat
Step on board a comfortable, relaxed, and elegant space and venture into parts of Patagonia that no other ship can access. The Ventus Australis features gourmet dining with an all-inclusive bar, three lounges, expansive open top deck and 100 spacious cabins with large windows for admiring the spectacular southern scenery.
The Ventus Australis is the sister ship of the Stella Australis and navigates the Tierra del Fuego in Patagonia's southernmost waterways. The name, Latin for “Southern Wind”, captures Southern Patagonia, land of wind, ice, and dramatic skies. The Ventus (and Stella) go where the big ships cannot go and are specifically designed to navigate the narrow fjords and channels.
