Hapag-Lloyd announce the names and further details of their two new expedition ships.

The new expedition ships have been named HANSEATIC nature and HANSEATIC inspiration.

Karl J. Pojer, CEO of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises, said: “The potential in the expedition ship segment is more than three times higher than supply. By virtue of the comfort and luxuriousness of our state-of-the-art new vessels, we will appeal to even more customers in the luxury segment in future. At the same time, authentic, natural spectacles that convey the feeling of a personal expedition have always been the basis for our decision-making.”

With our choice of names, we are continuing the success story of today’s HANSEATIC – the only 5-star expedition ship** – retaining the popular and well-known brand name and establishing a new and separate class within our fleet.”

The design concept, “inspired by nature”, reflects the expeditionary spirit and is the creative idea underpinning both ships.

Nature is not only experienced outside, but also is reflected in the interior design. This comes to the fore in the choice of materials, colours and forms, as well as in the contours and lines of walls and surfaces, the lines of sight and therefore the interplay between the interiors and the world outside.

A genuine expeditionary feeling ensures the all-round deck in the forecastle. Here, passengers can experience the action at close quarters – closer even than the captain. This contributes to the expeditionary character, especially when the ships embark on journeys to the Arctic, Antarctic or Amazon. The on-board design highlights include also the two extendible glass balconies. Passengers standing on these balconies can experience the unique feeling of floating over the ocean.

16 on-board Zodiacs and E-Zodiacs with eco-friendly electric drive systems allow for landings in remote expedition areas, regardless of the vicinity to a port. The ships also have a marina for water sports.
