Life Aboard

Fall under the spell of life at sea

Unplug from the normalcy of commutes, routines, familiar views, and 24-hour news—and find yourself ensconced in a new normal, where time is measured in waves across a bow or the changing size of islands on the horizon. Sailing across the ocean is a tonic for the soul, and a chance to bask in the change from normal daily life and indulge the amenities of the world’s premier expedition ship—National Geographic Endurance.


An optimal platform for an ocean crossing

National Geographic Endurance’s patented X-Bow® not only offers the smoothest, most comfortable ride, it also provides optimal viewing and photography opportunities from unprecedented forward and down-the-sides sightlines, plus multiple observation decks and new observation wings.

Indulge, relax, and focus on you

Aboard, you may enjoy spa treatments and therapies. Sauna, from high heat to milder to entertain you with stunning views—as do the twin infinity hot tubs on the top deck. A panoply of training options in the gym. And a gorgeous yoga studio in which to greet each day.

A movable feast

Dining aboard is a serious affair where options abound. Restaurant Two Seven Zero surrounds superb dining with stellar views and provides a window on vital expedition team members—our galley staff. C. Green’s restaurant offers an early riser breakfast, fresh salads and lighter fare, plus custom grilled selections at lunch and dinner. The Chef’s Table is an innovative approach to private dining. Over the course of the voyage, all guests aboard will be hosted by our Chef for an intimate and interactive dinner.

Make time at sea to explore Change

National Geographic Endurance is the site of a ground-breaking polar art exhibition. Curated by acclaimed artist Zaria Forman, Change is the first-ever, permanent ship-based installation of drawings, paintings, video, photography, and sculpture by a wide range of artists, including herself, dedicated exclusively to examining and expressing responses to vulnerable polar geographies.
