LINDBLAD Expeditions has revealed renders for what is being touted as the “world’s most advanced polar expedition ship”.
The National Geographic Endurance is the first new polar build in the line’s history, and is scheduled to depart on her inaugural Arctic itineraries following her early 2020 delivery.
The ship’s most striking feature is its distinctive profile (pictured), highlighting its specially created X-Bow shape.
The unique design gives the ship the “smoothest, most comfortable ride imaginable”, resulting in greater fuel efficiency and fewer emissions for reduced environmental impact.
The ship features 56 standard cabins with balconies, 13 extra large balcony suites featuring full-height windows (pictured above), an Ice Lounge where guests can enjoy recaps and presentations, as well as several dining options including Restaurant Two Seven Zero (left).
