The trips lead from Germany via Sweden and Norway to the Faroe Islands to Iceland and from Iceland to Greenland and back.
The 176-passenger World Explorer, expected from Portugal’s WestSea Viana Shipyard this month, is now set to arrive in summer 2019. The 9,300gt ship, being built for Portugal’s Mystic Cruises, a division of Mário Ferreira’s Mystic Invest, had been scheduled to operate on charter to Quark Expeditions during the current Antarctica season and then for Mystic subsidiary Nicko Cruises of Germany. The delay is to allow time for the shipyard to install a sophisticated hybrid power management system that will yield environmental and energy-saving benefits.
