Carnival Corporation has announced it will participate in the restoration of the Calypso, the famous research and expedition vessel of Oceanographer Captain Jacques Yves Cousteau. Calypso, which has been out of service since 1996, will be restored at a shipyard on Grand Bahama at an estimated cost of $1.3 million, with work expected to be completed by the end of 2005. The vessel's new location, following refurbishment, is to be announced at a later date. The Calypso will maintain its French flag and will remain a historic symbol of the work of Captain Cousteau and the Cousteau Society, which carries on his work in science and education for public awareness, as well as for international university research. Another scientific cruise vessel, the National Geographic Endeavour sets sail April 1, 2005 from Santiago Chile to Colon, Panama. A joint effort by National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions, the vessel is the redesigned Endeavour of Lindblad Expeditions, named after Captain James Cook's 18th century exploration ship.
