National Geographic Endeavour national-geographic-endeavour

Inaugurated in 2008, National Geographic Explorer is the world’s ultimate expedition ship. The embodiment of the Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic alliance, her design and equipment is the result of almost 200 years of collective expedition experience.

Sailing to the Galapagos year round, National Geographic Endeavour is best suited to those looking for a more active kind of cruising. As an expedition ship, she offers an expansive range of expedition tools, allowing her guests to see and experience a lesser known side of the region. Though there are no facilities specially catered for children, a range of workshops and daily activities are available.


All 56 of Endeavour's cabins feature ocean view, either through portholes, windows, or large windows. Cabins were designed with expedition in mind, with ample drawer space in the desk and beneath the bed(s) so you can store any luggage you may have.


Food & Drink

Serving regionally inspired meals, Endeavour's dining room offers guests the change to try out new dishes in a casual and relaxed ambience.


Life on Board

Endeavour offers a range of traditional entertainment amenities, including a Lounge, Bar, Library and shop. Some of them have a distinct expedition feels, as the shop sells items made by the people of Galapagos, and the Bridge is open to guests so they can survey the horizon.

Our cruise ship fleet consists of nimble, intimately-scaled expedition ships, able to safely venture where larger cruise ships cannot. This allows us to offer authentic, up-close experiences in the planet's wild, remote places and capitals of culture. More than comfortable as your base for exploring, our National Geographic luxury cruise ships are outfitted with cool tools that enable a genuine connection with the places we visit and offer inviting private accommodations, and gracious public spaces for our expedition community to gather.
