We love that the ship has an onboard selection of camera gear to try out on location, free of charge. With your onboard National Geographic photographer nearby for advice, it's a great way to make the most of the stunning photographic opportunities.

Beautiful ship, cabins were clean and comfortable. Laura was excellent, very personable and her staff was superb! When I was seasick, the food staff brought me rolls and ginger cookies. Yes, I would choose the Resolution in a heartbeat again. Read the full review

The Nat Geo Resolution is hands down the BEST ship I have ever been on... and a shoutout to Heidi the Captain and her team who sail that mega ship as if it was a zodiac! It has amazing views from wherever you are, it's cosy, the rooms couldn't be better thought out. The food was really excellent - the chefs really came up with a good menu, and we even had a really delicious outdoor barbeque! Read the full review

Cabin was fantastic, spent a lot of time on the balcony looking out for whales and taking in the view, and the food was to die for!! I would definitely repeat this trip on this boat or follow the boat wherever it went! Read the full review
