Lindblad's new National Geographic Endeavour ll sails one month early

#expeditioncruising .



Lindblad Expedition’s newest addition to the fleet, the 96-guest National Geographic Endeavour ll, made its inaugural voyage on Saturday, December 3, one month ahead of schedule. The first voyage was the 17-Day Epic Gal├ípagos Photography Expedition.

Before making its way to the Galapagos, National Geographic Endeavour ll was celebrated in Guayaquil with a traditional Ecuadorian religious blessing. Sven Lindblad, CEO of Lindblad Expeditions, hosted the celebration and onboard festivities, where he welcomed his special guests - members of the ship’s crew and their families.

Billed as the newest and most family-friendly ship in Galapagos, National Geographic Endeavour ll offers the choice of suites on two decks, double cabins with beds that can be configured as two twins or a queen, seven sets of connecting cabins for families and friends, triple cabins, and dedicated solo cabins, which are equal in size and amenities to the doubles. The ship’s shallow draft affords up close viewing from all public spaces, large windows in cabins and suites, state-of-the-art tools for exploration, and a fast twin Zodiac loading platform.

To celebrate the ship’s inaugural and the upcoming 50th Anniversary of Lars-Eric Lindblad’s pioneering voyage to the Galapagos, Lindblad is offering guests on National Geographic Endeavour ll free roundtrip air from Miami to Gal├ípagos on all departures January 6 – March 31, 2017, a savings of $1,300 per guest.

Throughout 2017 free air will also be offered on select departures on National Geographic Endeavour ll and the 48-guest National Geographic Islander. The offers cover both international air from Miami to Guayaquil, and the flight from Guayaquil to Galapagos.

The free air offer is applicable to new bookings only and is subject to availability.
