Nat Geo Adds a New 69-Cabin Cruise Ship To Its Polar Expedition Fleet

Despite the fact that it seems to always be shrinking, the Earth is a pretty massive planet. And most of us have only seen a small, accessible portion of it. That means — unless you’re a kindred spirit with the likes of Sir James Clark Ross, Sir Ernest Shackleton, and Sir Edmund Hillary — there’s still a quite bit more to see, especially around the poles. Well, that prospect just got a bit simpler and more luxurious thanks to the new National Geographic Resolution expedition cruise ship.

A sister to the National Geographic Endurance vessel, the Resolution is a massive Polar Class 5 ship boasting 69 spacious cabins suitable for up to 126 guests. Furthermore, when aboard the vessel, passengers will get to enjoy a wealth of opulent features including things like personal cabin balconies, full-ship WiFi connectivity, ocean-view saunas, infinity hot tubs, state-of-the-art theater/educational facilities, a yoga studio and gym, and so much more. Better still, adventures off the ship can be accessed via Zodiac boats, kayaks, cross-country skis, snowshoes, and even some kind of “sophisticated equipment that allows our undersea specialist unique access and ability to share the underwater world” — whether that’s a submersible or some kind of drone remains unclear.

You can book passage aboard the National Geographic Resolution right now (or hop aboard its sister ship) across a wide variety of expedition cruises that include a circumnavigation of Iceland to a remote Pacific trip between Tahiti and Taipei and everything in-between. Expeditions range from 6-24 days, depending on the trip, and pricing starts as low as $6,580 per person.
