National Geographic Orion

Cruise on board Lindblad Expeditions's National Geographic Orion

Built in 2003, the National Geographic Orion is designed to travel the four corners of the globe in complete self-sufficiency. It is engineered for comfort and safety, with an ice strength hull, and bow and stern thrusters to manoeuvre close to shore. Combined with its elegant fit-out, this makes the National Geographic Orion a unique boat that visits remote and wild destinations in extraordinary comfort.

Aboard there are 53 cabins accommodating 102 guests. All rooms feature outside windows, individual climate control, and generous bathrooms. A number of cabins also boast French balconies.

Public spaces are designed to capture the sweeping views during each journey of discovery. The main lounge is the heart of the ship where guests gather for briefings and the tradition of the daily recap. It's also a hub for socialising with cocktail hours each evening. Nearby is the more intimate observation lounge and library.

Activities are exploration focussed, with a fleet of 14 zodiacs delving deeper into each region visited. There is also a glass bottom, kayaks, snorkelling gear, and access to the remotely operated underwater vehicle.  Scuba diving is enjoyed at select locations for an extra cost.  After a day of exploration, guests can enjoy the opulent relaxation facilities aboard such as massages, the sauna, hot tub and fitness centre.

The National Geographic Islander travels the globe, visiting destinations such as Antarctica, Iceland, Sardinia, the Baltics and Mediterranean.
