Snorkel amongst colorful fish, giant sea turtles and even sting rays in Belize’s expansive Barrier Reef. Taste your way through Columbia and the Snake River at family-owned farms, wineries and more. Explore the mystique of Costa Rica’s rainforests and their exotic wildlife following a trip through the Panama Canal. Heal your body a soothing dip in the natural hot springs near Arenal Volcano. Journey to the restricted Glacier Bay National Park by special permission. These are just some of the exclusive experiences you can have when sailing onboard a National Geographic Venture cruise. National Geographic Venture, recently built and inaugurated in 2018, introduced some firsts to Lindblad’s expedition ship fleet. For instance, this ship features step-out balconies in almost half of its staterooms, a highlight not found on other ships that sail in its regions. It also has a uniquely-designed bow to accommodate more guests so everyone has a chance to view wildlife from the ship’s best vantage point. National Geographic Venture offers incredible, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to explore the fascinating sights of Alaska, Belize, Costa Rica and Panama, and the Pacific Northwest while accompanied by onboard experts who can transform your voyage into a revolutionary experience.

The intimate National Geographic Venture carries only 100 guests, making it even easier for you to engage in one-on-one interaction time with the many National Geographic experts onboard. National Geographic Venture cruises each feature an expedition leader, four expert naturalists, a certified National Geographic photo instructor, an undersea specialist, a video chronicler and wellness specialist. The Expedition Team is available at all times to share their vast knowledge of the Galapagos Islands with you through impromptu lectures, lessons and even over dinner. Each cruise features a nightly recap where you can hear about stories from earlier in the day as well as participate in a Q and A with an expert and learn about the next day’s plan. You’re destined to learn something new and fascinating with every itinerary.

National Geographic Venture embodies an informal yet spontaneous onboard atmosphere. One very unique feature of National Geographic Venture is that you can visit the bridge 24-hours a day and interact with the captain and ship officers, an experience you cannot find on many other ships. You will also discover a comfortable lounge and bar, an expansive sundeck where you can relax or take a morning stretch class, a spa, fitness center, observation area, and a shop offering handcrafted goods from the regions that you visit. All accommodations have a large window and are comfortably designed. Almost half of all staterooms aboard National Geographic Venture will have balconies with a floor-to-ceiling sliding glass door so you can privately relax however you choose. Twelve staterooms will be able to connect, making this a great ship for traveling families or large groups. You can relax in complete satisfaction while surrounded by relaxing tones and wonderful décor.

The delightful cuisine found aboard National Geographic Venture is full of flavor and destined to melt in your mouth. The onboard chefs are experts at taking fresh, local and sustainable ingredients and transforming them into delicious dishes that you’re certain to enjoy. The elegant main dining room features open seating dining so you can dine whenever and with whoever you want. Light meals are sometimes served on deck so you can enjoy dining in the fresh open air. Don’t be surprised to find the ship’s officers, naturalists and guest speakers to join in on dining with you.
