Hapag-Lloyd has launched a selection of International Cruises; spectacular itineraries where all on-board information and at least one shore excursion per destination is in English.

Whatever awakens your zeal for travel, from cruising to a tropical island paradise, an adventure in the white wonderland of the Antarctic, a trip to Africa’s breathtaking animal kingdom or sunny days packed with cultural highlights, the world’s most beautiful regions await. During your cruise, you can enjoy a wide range of organised shore excursions (subject to a charge). See the most important sights on classic scenic journeys or city tours; enjoy snorkelling, hiking or bicycle tours; or see the world from a new perspective on flights or boat tours.

Hanseatic Inspiration has more open deck space than other expedition ships, allowing you to get up close with nature. Hanseatic Inspiration has been fitted with cutting-edge equipment and environmental technology. PC6, the highest ice class for passenger ships, allows these ships to venture far into the Polar waters of the Arctic and Antarctic, as well as visting more tropical destinations such as the Amazon. Onboard, passengers can experience the feeling of floating over the ocean by standing on one of the two extendible glass balconies. Additionally, the all-round upper deck at the front of the ships ensures a close-quarters view of the wonders of nature. Even inside the ship nature is the inspiration, with the materials and colours of the interior design, as well as the contours and lines of the walls, all drawing from the natural world outside. There is a marina for water sports on board, and 16 Zodiacs and E-Zodiacs (with eco-friendly electric drive systems) allowing for further exploration in remote areas.
