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).
Voyages aboard the Ventus
There are 100 cabins aboard the Ventus, each offers a picture window with panoramic view and private bathroom as well as individually controlled heating, radios, life jackets, hair dryers and safe-deposit boxes.
Standard cabins (B, A, AA and AAA) measure 16.5 metres square.
Superior cabins (AAS, AAAS) measure 20.5 metres square.
The five different types are detailed below...
AAA Superior (2)
- Wonderfully spacious and airy, measuring 220 square feet in size, with ample room for storage and relaxation
- Well positioned for access to the Sky Lounge and Darwin Lounge
- The best view on board, due to their height on the ship, and the huge floor to ceiling picture window
- Large king sized beds measuring 1.8m x 1.98m.
A Cabins (34) & B Cabins (3)
- Spacious cabins measuring 178 square feet
- Slightly smaller windows on this deck measuring 1.45m x 1.20m
- Standard-size twin (1.05m x 1.90m) or double beds. (1.60m x 1.90m)
- B cabins are on the low deck with slightly less panoramic view than the A cabins and the prices reflect this
- If you are planning a year in advance you might be lucky enough to secure one of these
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.
