(2:25 p.m. EST) -- Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic's National Geographic Endurance, the line's first-ever cruise ship designed specifically for polar cruising, will sail a new "Epic Antarctica" itinerary during the winter 2020 season.

The voyage will travel throughout the Antarctic Peninsula, the Ross Sea ice shelf, Macquarie and the sub-Antarctic islands of Australia and New Zealand. The 35-day sailing will emphasize an abundance of unique wildlife -- with a variety of endemic species of penguins -- and, as with all Lindblad sailings, feature an expedition team, including naturalists.

The 126-passenger National Geographic Endurance will have the highest ice class possible. It will also span six decks with 10,000 square feet of glass to view the scenery, and offer off-ship experiences like kayaking or Zodiac cruising through polar waters.

The Epic Antarctica itinerary departs December 27, 2020 and January 26, 2021; double occupancy rates begin at $48,800 per person.

Lindblad Expeditions is christening its newest ship, National Geographic Venture, this week in San Diego. Venture marks the second new-build in the line's history. Stay tuned for coverage.
