National Geographic Endurance was built to provide comfort and utmost polar experience to its 126 guests on board. A fully stabilized, highly strengthened, ice-class Polar Code PC5 (Category A), this vessel is designed to navigate polar passages year-round, and safely explore unchartered waters.  Its patented X-BOW® is key to its design; its powerful wave-slicing action provides an extremely smooth ride in even adverse conditions, and even reduces spray on deck, for superior observation. She carries a full suite of expedition tools and offers a variety of experience-enhancing amenities.

This vessel has an observation Lounge with bar, gym, Wellness area, infinity-style outdoor hot tubs, library, main lounge with full service bar, 24-hour beverage and a photo workshop area for the guests to enjoy for leisure time. There are also expedition tools to enjoy such as Zodiac landing craft, kayaks, snowshoes, cross-country skis, undersea specialist operating a remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) and underwater video camera for unique access to polar marine world, hydrophone, aerial remote-controlled camera and video microscope.

National Geographic Endurance has 69 cabins that varies from seven categories plus 2 sub-categories for solo cabins. Fifty-three out of the sixty-nine cabins will have its own balcony, sofa, private bathroom, tv, Wi-Fi and other neccessities to accommodate the guests' needs.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
