A real adventure

Discovering extraordinary regions, intensive experiences of the world and fascinating insights from well-versed experts - the proven expedition concept from Hapag-Lloyd Cruises is also used on cruises for young discoverers. Varied and entertaining, our experts will impart knowledge and analytical thinking.

Whether it's eventful hikes or Zodiac rides, the examination of specimens under a microscope, a spot of navigation, a course on sailors' knots or age-appropriate talks: the crew and a renowned expert offer an exciting programme for those aged 10 to 17 years old, awakening young people's curiosity and encouraging inquiring minds - and giving the entire family an expeditionary experience they will never forget.

A sea of knowledge

The programme has been specially designed for teenagers in order to encourage the curiosity of young explorers. Be it with a spot of navigation on board, Zodiac rides, activities ashore or looking through a microscope, learning oceanography, geology and geography will become a fun activity for children of a similar age. An experienced academic expert and numerous crew members - from the captain to the navigation officer to the ship's cook - will work to ensure age-appropriate learning. Every day, the many discoveries and experiences will develop into a real adventure.

Earn your sea legs
"Landlubbers" will be made into little "mariners" on board - visit the captain on the bridge and take part in question-and-answer sessions with the officers for exciting insights into seafaring - from reading nautical and bathymetric charts to navigating and using the radar and sonar.

Broaden your horizons
See the raw materials of the sea with your own eyes. For example, research ore that is millions of years old under the microscope as you study geological marine deposits. Studying microfossils under the microscope also provides compelling insights into the history of the oceans.

Enjoy XXL holiday fun
Roll the cameras for the cinema evening - just for kids. With popcorn, of course. Order a pizza with the works during the pizza evening. And if you're a talented scout, you might have a chance at winning the rally through the ship. Full of variety! As holidays should be.
