National Geographic Explorer
- National Geographic Endeavour
- National Geographic Explorer
A state-of-the-art expedition ship, and the newest addition to the Lindblad fleet, National Geographic Explorer is a fully stabilized, ice-class vessel with an ice 1A rating, enabling it to navigate polar passages while providing exceptional comfort for its passengers. Although the emphasis is on what's outside, the ship is well fitted inside and surprisingly stylish following a 2008 rebuild. The main lounge has a full-service bar and state-of-the-art equipment for presentations, including films and slideshows.
National Geographic Explorer carries 36 double kayaks and a fleet of 13 Zodiac landing craft. An Undersea Specialist operates a remotely operated vehicle hydrophone (ROV) and sophisticated video equipment, extending access to the underwater world. A well-stocked library is adjacent to the Observation Lounge, which only offers views from the sides of the ship. The view from the glass-enclosed fitness center—including both sides of the ship and aft over the wake—could inspire you to add some time to your exercise routine.
