This summer, Lindblad Expeditions will have a fleet of four ships in Alaska, including two of their three newbuilds—National Geographic Quest and the newly launched National Geographic Venture. To celebrate the occasion, the line has announced an exclusive Alaska incentive for travel advisors, plus family discounts for guests.

When travel advisors book their clients on any 2019 Alaska expedition aboard one of the Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic fleet ships, they will be automatically entered into the prize drawing for a chance to win one of three expeditions for two people aboard the National Geographic Quest, National Geographic Venture or National Geographic Endurance. Two entries will be awarded for every guest booked and advisors will also receive a $250 gift card per cabin.

All prizes are valid for one category one cabin for two guests, and the final departure date will be based upon availability and subject to holiday and other blackouts. The first prize will be a trip on the Arctic: Land of the Ice Bears itinerary sailing aboard Lindblad’s new polar vessel launching in January 2020, National Geographic Endurance. Second prize will be sailing aboard the National Geographic Quest for the Alaska’s Coastal Wilderness itinerary, while the Baja California and the Sea of Cortez sailing aboard the National Geographic Venture will be awarded as the third prize.
