The sister ship to the Endurance, the brand new National Geographic Resolution explores polar & temperate regions & is named to honor the second voyage of the legendary Captain James Cook.
A fully-stabilized vessel of the highest ice class (PC5 Category A), she will enable adventurous guests to go where few have or can. Resolution’s most striking exterior feature is her distinctive profile, the patented X-Bow®, a game-changing design that guarantees the smoothest, most comfortable ride in all kinds of conditions; and since it eliminates bow impact, a quieter ride, as well.
Scandinavian-inflected, luxuriously appointed, her inviting interiors would be a destination in themselves. All cabins have large windows, private facilities, climate controls, an expedition command center equipped with tablets and USB/mobile device docking, flat screen TVs, WiFi connections, and hair dryers.
There is also three dining areas; an observation lounge with bar, gym, wellness area, infinity-style outdoor hot tubs with adjacent igloos; library; main lounge with full service bar, 24-hour beverage station, state-of-the-art tech for films/presentations; B&H Photo locker and a photo workshop area; science hub; an onboard broadcast studio; an expedition base with lockers for expedition gear; and open access to the Bridge, Captain, officers and on-duty wildlife spotters.
For extra comfort there is a glass-enclosed yoga studio, gym, treatment rooms and spa relax area, and high and low-heat saunas with ocean views, staffed by wellness specialists. Thanks to the Lindblad-National Geographic alliance, you can sail aboard the Resolution to the planet’s most extraordinary place in the company of world-renowned scientists, naturalists, educators, and researchers, and explore stunning natural environments alongside skilled specialists using state-of-the-art exploration tools.
