HANSEATIC nature, the first of three identical ships in the Hapag-Lloyd Cruises' new expedition class, is up and running on her inaugural cruise to the Hebrides, Orkney Islands and Shetland Islands.

She left Hamburg on Sunday and concludes the nine-day cruise in Bergen on 14 May.

The HANSEATIC nature is a small, manoeuvrable and state-of-the-art expedition ship, to be positioned in the 5-star segment. Its construction, design and routes revolve around providing a true expedition experience and getting as close as possible to nature.

The ship, earmarked for cruises to the Arctic and Antarctic, is set to raise the bar in the expedition cruising segment and features many special structural elements to enhance the experience including two extendable balconies. It also features cutting-edge equipment and environmental technology.

Between cruises to the Arctic in the European summer and expeditions to the Antarctic in the European winter, the HANSEATIC nature will also offer warmer water cruises to destinations such as the Amazon, the South Seas, Chile’s fjords, the Azores and Cape Verde.

Sister ship HANSEATIC inspiration will set sail this October followed by HANSEATIC spirit in May 2021.
