Europe to get first taste of both Hanseatic Nature and Inspiration in 2019

The maiden voyages of sister expedition ships Hanseatic Nature and Hanseatic Inspiration will be in Europe.

On its 13-day maiden voyage, the Hanseatic Nature will sail from Hamburg to Lisbon in April 2019.

Guests on the four subsequent nine-day cruises will also have the opportunity to get to know the new ship in European waters.

The Hanseatic Inspiration will complete its maiden voyage from Antwerp to Tenerife in October 2019.

Hapag-Lloyd’s new small ships will accommodate up to 230 guests, but only 199 guests on Antarctic cruises.

The almost identical ships feature numerous structural elements that make the expeditionary experience even more intense. Retractable glass balconies give guests the feeling of hovering directly above the water, and guests can stand on the circuit on the bow of the ship to be closer to the action, even closer than the captain.

The new ships will also be given a special visual feature: a blue, undulating finish on the hull.

They will both hold a Polar Class 6 (PC6), the highest ice class ranking for passenger ships. In addition to Arctic cruises in the European summer and expeditions to the Antarctic in the European winter, the Hanseatic Nature and Hanseatic Inspiration will set sail for the Amazon, the Chilean fjords, the Azores and Cape Verde.

The cruises range from short four-day cruises to the Frisian Islands, to 20-day expedition trips to the Antarctic.

Guests interested in their dream cruise can now make a pre-booking; final bookings will be open in late January 2018.
