National Geographic Endurance
is a next-generation expedition ship, purpose-built for year-round polar navigation. A fully stabilized, highly strengthened, ice-class vessel, it is designed to safely explore uncharted waters in exceptional comfort, including a special patented bow that reduces spray on deck and provides a smooth ride even in adverse conditions. Communal highlights include the Ice Lounge and a fire at the heart of The Den, infinity Jacuzzis, saunas with a view and a glass-walled yoga studio. The ship carries a full slate of expedition tools, including expedition landing craft, kayaks, underwater camera, a remotely operated vehicle for undersea exploration, snorkeling gear and wet suits, hydrophone and more.
comfortably accommodates 126 guests in 69 outside-facing cabins. Every cabin has two portholes, a large window or balcony, and temperature controls. Fifty-three of the efficiently designed cabins, including all 12 of the solo cabins, feature small balconies with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors that bring in spectacular views and natural light. All cabins have modern bathrooms stocked with botanically inspired products. An in-room expedition command center includes a tablet so you can follow the ship’s progress, USB/mobile device docking, TV and Wi-Fi connection.
