Cruceros Australis to Unveil Stella Australis in December

Adventure cruise specialist Cruceros Australis will unveil a new ship, the 210-passenger Stella Australis, in December. The Stella will have 100 177-square-foot cabins and three lounges -- the Sky Lounge, the Darwin Lounge and the Yamana Lounge -- equipped with audio-visual equipment for educational presentations throughout the voyage. There is also a reception area, a dining room and an exercise room. Cabin highlights include picture windows, independent climate controls, bathrooms and a satellite phone.

Cruceros Australis also operates the Via Australis and the Mare Australis. Both the Via, built in 2005, and the Mare, built in 2002, have 64 cabins, each with windows. The five decks of both ships include two lounges and a dining room.

Cruceros Australis explores the southernmost regions of South America including Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego and Cape Horn. Additional highlights include Ainsworth Bay and Glacier Alley, as well as small group excursions such as a trip to Magdalena Island to see the Magellanic penguins. Expedition leaders present daily lectures in both English and Spanish to complement the educational component of the expeditions. The talks take place both on the ship and on land during excursions.
