The National Geographic Endeavour carrying just 96 guests in 56 outside cabins, is a small ship that is superbly designed for the expedition cruising in the Galapagos Islands. She is small enough to go where large ships couldn't possibly venture, yet large enough to operate in remote environments in complete comfort. The fleet of Zodiac landing craft carried on board extends the Endeavour's reach even further, allowing you to venture off the ship almost anywhere, at a moment's notice. They are one of the keys to expedition travel. You'll also find sea kayaks for guests' use, for quiet personal exploration in the remote places the National Geographic Endeavour visits.
Public Areas: The Endeavour is fully air conditioned. She has a covered deck with chairs and tables; Doctors office; Fitness Center; Spa; Global Gallery: Library: Lounge with full service bar and facilities for films and presentations; sauna and small swimming pool; and Sun deck. The Ecuadorian captain welcomes guests to the bridge in accordance with an "Open Bridge" policy. Meals are served in single seatings with unassigned tables for an informal atmosphere. The menu is international with Ecuadorian flare. The Endeavour carries expedition equipment including kayak, glass bottom boat, snorkeling gear, underwater video camera, video microscope, wet suits and Zodiac landing craft. Special features aboard the National Geographic Endeavour include internet access, laundry service, floating assage platform and Wellness Program. A ship's doctor and video chronicler are also on board.
