National Geographic Endurance or Resolution

These two identical sister ships are fully-stabilized vessels of the highest ice class and will enable adventurous guests to go where few have or can. National Geographic Endurance/Resolution’s most striking exterior feature is their distinctive profile, the patented X-Bow®, a game-changing design that guarantees the smoothest, most comfortable ride in all kinds of conditions. Scandinavian-inflected, luxuriously appointed, their inviting interiors would be a destination in themselves. However, your attention is focused on the world outside—with acres of window glass to keep you connected to the stunning views beyond the pane, and a fleet of expedition tools to get you out exploring.
