Ship/Deck Plan


Stella Australis & Ventus Australis

The M.V. Stella Australis (built in 2010) and the M.V. Ventus Australis (build in 2017) are sister ships designed to specifically cruise the spectacular Patagonian waterways. Each ship’s 100 cabins are all outside facing and feature a large window, an en suite bathroom, a satellite phone, and individual temperature controls. Cabins are available on three levels: Category A on the second level, Category AA on the third level, and Category AAA on the fourth level. Facilities include an open deck, three lounges, a library, a game room, and a single seating dining room. National Geographic has reserved 15 cabins—across Categories A, AA, and AAA—on most departures. (All cabins in our allotment are the same size; however, if you are interested in one of the ship’s four slightly larger AA-Superior or AAA-Superior cabins, please inquire for details, costs, and availability.)
