Lindblad Expeditions Holdings celebrated the float out of its National Geographic Endurance on December 7 at Ulstein Verft in Ulsteinvik Norway.

NatGeo Endurance is the first polar newbuild for the cruise company. The 126-passenger ship is fully stabilized with PC5 Category A - the highest ice class of any purpose-built passenger vessel.

The ship is scheduled for delivery in January 2020.

National Geographic Endurance is the first of a couple of vessels of CX104 design from Ulstein for building at Ulstein Verft, Norway. The shipyard is located at 62 degrees north, just 4 degrees south of the Polar Circle, at the edge of one of the toughest oceans of the world, the North Sea.
