Gigantic tabular icebergs and magnificent wildlife sightings – undeterred, the HANSEATIC inspiration forges its path along the Antarctic Peninsula...

Gigantic tabular icebergs and magnificent wildlife sightings – undeterred, the HANSEATIC inspiration forges its path along the Antarctic Peninsula, through the narrow Lemaire Channel and the crystal-clear waters of the Neumayer Channel. Enjoy a more intensive experience of the Weddell Sea than on any other route: how far into this region will the HANSEATIC inspiration actually make it? The volcanic South Shetland Islands thrill with a contrast between ice, glaciers and fascinating fauna.

Your ship: The NEW HANSEATIC inspiration:
The HANSEATIC inspiration is planned to launch in October 2019. The wind in your hair and the spray on your skin – become an explorer under an open sky. This is why Hapag Lloyd ships have more open deck space than any other expedition ship. Hear the ice crack as you stand on the bow. Or discover the dense mangrove forests of the Amazon from various perspectives as they pass by at arm`s length.

Please note: The HANSEATIC inspiration will be an international ship, with all cruises conducted in both English and German.
