Hanseatic Inspiration Itineraries

Hapag-Lloyd Cruises has announced itineraries for their new Hanseatic Inspiration, which will be delivered in October 2019, offering an international experience to English- and German-speaking guests.

The Hanseatic Nature debuts six months earlier, in April 2019, offering a German-speaking experience.

Hapag-Lloyd’s two new expedition ships will both hold a ‘Polar Class 6’, the highest ice class ranking for passenger ships.

The almost identical ships raise the bar in the expedition segment, according to the company, and 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.” a Hapag-Lloyd spokesperson said.

Sample Itineraries:

HANSEATIC INSPIRATION:
Maiden voyage, October 14-29, 2019 (15 days) from Antwerp, Belgium to Tenerife, Spain including travel via France (Honfleur), the Channel Islands (Guernsey), Spain (including La Coruna, Islas Cies), Portugal (overnight in Lisbon, Portimao), Morocco (Casablanca), Madeira (Porto Santo Island, and overnight in Funchal).

    Probably both arms and both legs, I guess Edwin.

    There’s been a big rise in Expedition cruising, I’m obviously in the wrong job to be able to afford it.

    Arm and a leg job I bet.
