About the ship:

According to Lindblad Expeditions, the National Geographic endurance is a “next generation expedition ship, purpose-built for polar navigation. A fully stabilized, highly strengthened, ice-class Polar Class (PC5) vessel, it is designed to navigate polar passages year-round, and safely explore uncharted waters, while providing exceptional comfort. Its patented X-BOW® is key to its design; its powerful wave-slicing action provides an extremely smooth ride in even adverse conditions, and even reduces spray on deck, for superior observation. She carries a full suite of expedition tools and offers a variety of experience-enhancing amenities.”
