Why We Like This Ship

  • Not your typical “cruise ship” - a luxurious vessel that is small enough to get into hidden corners of the fjords
  • Excellent service & fine wining / dining
  • Highly knowledgeable expedition leaders
  • Comfortable lounges and spacious cabins to relax in after a day's exploring
  • Zodiac boat excursions to remote, uninhabited locations
  • Excursions to suit all abilities/ adventure levels

A Ventus cruise would combine very well with some time hiking based from a luxury Lodge in Torres del Paine National Park before or after (depending on the route you choose).

What our customers think

The cruise was wonderful... Four days was a nice amount of time to spend cruising through the Fjords, getting out and hiking as well as making our way to Cape Horn. The Pia glacier was probably my favorite part of the trip. We were able to see the glacier calving which was an incredible site. Read the full review

Take some time to stand aboard the deck and watch the fjords unfold around you. There are countless different perspectives as you move around the ship, some low to the water with great chances to spot wildlife, and some high enough that you feel on top of the world.
