Lindblad Expeditions Announces New Polar Vessel

The push to explore the unexplored is all the rage in cruising these days and one of the biggest names in expedition cruising has a new polar class vessel in the works. Lindblad Expeditions, a leader in expedition cruising to the far ends of the Earth in conjunction with National Geographic, announced a new polar expedition ship set to be delivered in 2021.

The ship comes as part of a scheduled fleet expansion following the launch of National Geographic Quest in July of 2017 and National Geographic Venture in December of 2018. The yet to be named ship will come after the launch of National Geographic Endurance in the beginning of 2020, bringing the total number of polar class ships operated by Lindblad to four.

“We are extremely excited to announce the further expansion of our expedition fleet.  This is the next step of our long-term growth strategy to capitalize on the expanding demand for high quality adventure travel,” he said. “By marrying additional capacity with a dedicated and growing loyal customer base and fifty years of experience, we will be able to build upon our proven track record of delivering unparalleled expeditions to the world’s most remarkable destinations.”

Authentic Cruise Experiences

Lindblad Expeditions is certainly one of the most prominent names in expedition cruising as guests are continually searching for quality and authentic experiences which get them closer to the places and nature at the furthest reaches of the globe. Polar class ships are specially designed to handle the intense climates of the Arctic or Antarctic where ice and other natural elements are often unavoidable.

Lindblad Expedition’s commitment to helping people reach these destinations is clear in their aggressive fleet expansion and establishment of new itineraries.
