The Magellan Explorer is an expedition vessel custom built for Antarctic cruises. For Antartica21’s air-cruises, the Magellan Explorer has capacity for 73 passengers, but for maximum comfort only 38 cabins are occupied. There are seven categories of accommodation, all with individually controlled heating systems, a sitting area, and a private bathroom with shower, and all categories except Porthole cabins have private balconies. Elegant modern interiors are the work of a renowned interior design studio based in Santiago.

The ship features a glass-enclosed observation lounge and presentation room with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment, a spacious and stylish dining room, a well-stocked bar, a library, a meeting room, a gym, a sauna, and a medical clinic. The forward-facing observation deck leads to the bow of the ship, a great place from which to spot marine wildlife. The ship has a fleet of 10 Zodiac boats that are well suited for disembarking and wildlife watching in small guided groups.
