National Geographic Orion

The 102 passenger National Geographic Orion is gracious and intimate, with a rewarding, almost clubby feeling. Of her many amenities and features, the most appealing is her outside deck space which beckons in the balmy reaches of the Pacific and offers a range of panoramic viewing options for up-close marine life encounters. With her small size, rugged capability and upscale amenities, Orion is considered by many to be the perfect expedition ship.
