This year, we christened two brand-new ships purpose-built for polar exploration—National Geographic Enduranceand her sister ship, National Geographic Resolution—but it was a celebration every time one of our ships embarked on a new voyage. From Iceland and Galápagos to Antarctica and beyond, our ships provided a comfortable home base for guests to explore some of the world's wildest places.Here are some of our favorite photos of our fleet in action throughout 2021: Get Inspired By Photos, Videos, Webinars, Stories, And Exclusive Offers.
