Our expedition ship is equipped to safely cruise the New Zealand coast, and provides the exhilarating up-close, personal style of exploration we have offered for over 35+ years.
National Geographic Orion is a state-of-the-art expedition ship, designed to safely explore both polar and tropical regions of the planet. Orion carries 102 guests in 53 cabins, nine of them with balconies. She is equipped with a full complement of cool tools to explore the environment, including kayaks, Zodiacs, and an ROV. Her size and nimbleness offer the perfect combination of safety and the liberty to voyage untrammeled locations, where large cruise ships and less veteran expedition teams cannot go.
