March 16, 2017
National Geographic Orion

(2:22 p.m. EDT) -- Starting this April, Lindblad Expeditions will include all drinks and crew gratuities in the cruise fares for all departures of National Geographic Explorer and National Geographic Orion. With these inclusions, the only things left onboard that will cost passengers anything are Wi-Fi, spa treatments and items from the ship's Global Gallery shop.
