National Geographic Resolution Completes Sea Trials

#expeditioncruising .

Lindblad Expeditions has announced that National Geographic Resolution, their next-generation expedition ship purpose-built for polar navigation, has successfully completed her sea trials in the Vartdal fjord, the outermost part of the Stor fjord, at the entrance of the iconic Geirangerfjord.

During the three-day trials, the ship was put through a series of exercises which tested engines, azipods, navigation systems and emergency maneuvers.

Sister ship to National Geographic Endurance which launched in Iceland on July 22, 2021, the 126-guest National Geographic Resolution is fully stabilized with the highest ice class (PC5 Category A) of any purpose-built passenger vessel. She features the distinctive X-Bow® which will afford the smoothest, most comfortable ride imaginable, in all sea behavior, resulting in greater fuel efficiency and fewer emissions for reduced environmental impact.

Following sea trails National Geographic Resolution returned to the shipyard, Ulstein Verft, for her final outfitting before delivery set in Q4. She will embark on her maiden voyage, Journey to Antarctica: the White Continent on November 7, 2021.
