National Geographic Endurance enters service

Lindblad Expeditions christened the National Geographic Endurance in Reykjavik, Iceland, on July 22, during a closed ceremony exclusively for Lindblad Expeditions guests.

The 126-passenger Endurance is Lindblad’s first new polar expedition ship.

Addressing guests, company founder Sven Lindblad said, “I have not seen the ship since January of 2020, and arriving today and walking through, it just took my breath away. I really hope you like this ship.”

The ship’s godmothers were two employees: director of hotel operations Ana Esteves and director of field staff and expedition development Jen Martin.

Guests embarked on a 19-day inaugural itinerary exploring Iceland and Greenland.
