The sister ships, Stella and Ventus Australis, are designed to cruise in Patagonia, along the Strait of Magellan, the Beagle Channel, past glaciers and round Cape Horn. They offer a choice of itineraries and cruise duration's between September and April each year.

Each vessel has 100 cabins arranged over 3 decks, all with windows and en-suite shower room. Communal facilities include the Patagonia dining room and lounges on 3 different decks, so there are plenty of places to relax and enjoy the company of fellow passengers and take in views of the changing scenery. Board games and reference books are available to help pass the time too. Naturalist guides give talks about forthcoming the geography, wildlife and history of upcoming destinations, and the initial presentation outlines the scope of the cruise.

Daily shore excursions let you experience the pristine beauty of the environment and watch wildlife including penguins and elephant seals among others, often with the choice of a walk or a more strenuous hike, as you prefer. You can also explore by zodiac. Back on board you are free to relax, and if you wish can join guided tours to the engine room and the bridge.
