Lindblad Expeditions’ seventh ship, National Geographic Explorer, is carrying its first passengers on a 14-day voyage from Iceland to Greenland.
The ice-class expedition vessel (ex Lyngen), which Lindblad Expeditions acquired last year from Hurtigruten and extensively rebuilt, now carries 148 passengers in 81 outside cabins.
‘With the tools and technology housed on board, she is the ultimate 21st-century expedition vessel,’ said Sven-Olof Lindblad, founder and president of Lindblad Expeditions. ‘She is also a beautiful ship that has been built with careful attention to detail and comfort.’
Equipment includes a remote operated vehicle that can explore to depths of 1,000 feet, a remote controlled crow’s nest camera with real-time footage broadcast on high-definition LCD screens within each cabin, an electronic chart system broadcast on a cabin TV channel, 11 Zodiacs and 36 double kayaks.
The vessel also offers a glass-enclosed observation lounge, a spa, library, bistro and restaurant.
