Nothing could be more amazing than discovering planet Earth and its beauty on a cruise. In order to preserve this beauty for a long time to come, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises has attributed top priority to the protection of the environment. Because exploring new shores also means assuming responsibility.
We set ourselves high standards in terms of acting in an environmentally compatible and sustainable manner by means of various measures – whenever possible even exceeding the legal stipulations. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises is the first cruise operator, for instance, to offer its guests the opportunity to offset their cruise-only CO2 emissions. Beyond this, we are the first cruise company in the world to equip the newly built MS EUROPA 2 with a catalyst which reduces the nitrogen oxide emissions by almost 95 percent and partially also filters soot.
