Lindblad Expeditions has accepted delivery of National Geographic Resolution from Ulstein Verft, marking the official completion of the line’s second polar new build. The vessel is now ready to set off for her inaugural polar voyage on 17 November 2021 to Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falklands.
The state-of-the-art 126-passenger ship features the ULSTEIN’s X-BOW that provides fuel efficiency while significantly improving guest comfort in rough seas; and PC5 ice class for access deep into polar regions.
“This is an extraordinary ship, and I am so proud as we continue our growth with the addition of another best-in-class polar vessel to our fleet,” stated Sven Lindblad, Founder and Co-Chair of the Board of Lindblad.
“With the National Geographic Resolution and her sister ship, National Geographic Endurance, we have the elusive result of expedition excellence and elegance exquisitely combined.”
“It is also remarkable that her delivery was on time during this difficult period,” Lindblad said.
National Geographic Resolution has been designed to connect guests to the outside environment from anywhere on the ship. The cabin measurements range from 13 square metre solo cabins to the 40 square metre suites. More than three-quarters (77%) of the cabins feature balconies with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors.
