The new 50-Cabin MV Magellan Explorer will  begin service to Antarctica on November 2019.

Antarctic air-cruise specialist ANTARCTICA XXI announces the addition of MV Magellan Explorer to its fleet of small expedition vessels.


The ship will be delivered to ANTARCTICA XXI for the 2019-2020 Antarctic season, introducing a modern new vessel that is custom built for the company’s innovative fly and cruise Antarctic expeditions.


“MV Magellan Explorer is the first small passenger ship to be purpose built for Antarctica in the last 14 years,” states Jaime Vásquez Sapunar, ANTARCTICA XXI’S President and Chairman.  “To ensure we continue to offer an exclusive boutique experience to our guests, we will limit the capacity to a maximum of 70 guests for each Antarctic air-cruise departure.”


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.).    Forty-two cabins feature a large window and a private balcony, while 8 cabins feature a porthole.  Sixteen adjoining cabins can be configured as 8 two-room suites to offer guests the most spacious accommodation.  All cabins feature a private bathroom and a sitting area.
