National Geographic Venture

When completed, National Geographic Venture will be the perfect ship to explore Alaska’s Inside Passage and beyond. The Venture and sister ship Quest will be the first expedition ships of their kind to be purposefully designed and built for expedition travel and made entirely in the U.S.
The twin expedition craft landing platforms allow passengers to rapidly get on and off the ship to take advantage of wildlife sightings and to ensure maximizing time off the ship exploring. Designed with decades of expedition experience in the region, the purpose-built vessel also features open decks, generous windows, and specialty tools for exploration—the ideal platform for sailing into the fast-moving channels and shallow coves of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest and for exploring the tropical waterways of Central America.

Activities on National Geographic Venture

The lounge is the heart of the expedition community, where they hold cocktail hour and Recap each evening. It’s also where you’ll gather for presentations, photography talks, and guest speaker presentations. Seating design takes advantage of the wraparound windows for an optimal view, and boasts multiple high-definition screens for slideshows and videos. Forward lounge doors provide direct access to the bow. There’s also a small reference library and board games and cards are also available.

Dining / Food on National Geographic Venture

Food served aboard is fresh, local, and delicious, and sourced from suppliers who share our values of sustainable use whenever possible. Meals aboard are almost always served in the dining room, located aft of the lounge deck. When weather conditions allow, lighter fare may be served on the observation deck. There is no assigned seating and our dining room accommodates the entire expedition community in a single seating. During meals your expedition leader, naturalists, and any guest speakers aboard will join you.
