National Geographic Sea Bird
Welcome to the National Geographic Sea Bird! Accommodating just 62 guests in 31 outside cabins, the National Geographic Sea Bird is large enough to operate in remote environments in comfort, yet small enough to enter ports and narrow inlets inaccessible to bigger ships. It carries sea kayaks and a fleet of expedition landing crafts, providing easy access to coastlines and other places of interest. Each cabin faces outside and all cabins have windows and are attractively and comfortably furnished with lower berths, private bathrooms, reading lights and individual climate control.
Total Occupancy: 62 Guests in 31 Cabins
National Geographic Sea Bird features a library; global market; lounge with full-service bar and facilities for films, slide shows and presentations; observation deck; partially covered sun deck with chairs and tables, and LEXspa. Our “open Bridge” provides guests an opportunity to meet our officers and captain and learn about navigation.
A program outlining each day will be posted on the bulletin board by the lounge daily.
Meals are served in the dining room at a single seating with unassigned tables for an informal atmosphere and easy mingling. Breakfast and lunch are usually buffet with a variety of choices, and dinner is sit-down service with 3-4 sustainable choices. The menu features locally inspired fare, and locally sourced where possible.
