HANSEATIC nature / inspiration / spirit

Cutting-edge equipment and environmental technology for Polar cruising

Hapag-Lloyd is to enter the expedition cruise market with three new vessels - HANSEATIC nature, inspiration and spirit.

The 15,650-ton ships are being built by Norwegian Vard shipyard. Nature and inspiration will arrive in spring and autumn 2019 respectively, with spirit joining he fleet in 2021 as the line’s first “adults only” ship.

How the new ships will look

All three will be fitted with cutting-edge equipment and environmental technology. They will also have the highest ice class for passenger ships, allowing them to access the polar regions (the Arctic and Antarctic), as well as in warmer destinations such as the Amazon region.
