Lindblad commemorates National Geographic milestone with special cruises

By Tom Stieghorst
Lindblad Expeditions will mark the 125th anniversary of the National Geographic Society's foundation with cruises to the Canadian Maritimes and to South America.

The eight-day Canadian cruise, departing Sept. 7, will visit eastern Canada and Newfoundland. An expedition will be led by National Geographic Society chairman-emeritus Gil Grosvenor, who will host a private lunch on the grounds of his family's estate.

The 38-day Epic South America voyage departs Sept. 18 and will visit eight countries and three rivers (Amazon, Orinoco, Essequibo).

Both cruises will utilize the 148-passenger National Geographic Explorer ship.

Lindblad and the National Geographic Society have had an alliance to do expedition cruises since 2004.
