National Geographic Resolution is a next-generation expedition ship, purpose-built for polar navigation. A twin to the National Geographic Endurance, she is a fully stabilized, highly strengthened, ice-class Polar Class 5 (PC5) vessel, it is designed to navigate polar passages year-round, and safely explore uncharted waters, while providing exceptional comfort. 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 the polar marine world, hydrophone, aerial remote-controlled camera and video microscope.
