marine gas oil

We’re cleaning up our act. 

Hapag-Lloyd Cruises raises the bar in the luxury and expedition segments – and also in environmental protection. From July 2020, we will therefore dispense with heavy fuel oil and turn to high-quality marine gas oil for use by all our ships. With this voluntary commitment, we will far exceed the minimum statutory requirements and thus reduce emissions by 80 per cent.

International cruises

Our international voyages (English/German) on the EUROPA 2 and on the HANSEATIC inspiration ensure that English-speaking passengers feel comfortable from the moment they step on board. All of the documentation, e.g. confirmation, travel documents, handbooks, programmes of the day, menus, announcements and lectures as well as the safety drill and Zodiac instruction will be provided in English. We offer at least one shore excursion in English in each port of call. Approximately three months prior to the start of the cruise you will receive information about the shore excursions available in English.

More information about our international cruises on the EUROPA 2 and the HANSEATIC inspiration can be found in our English catalogues. All other catalogues are only available in German language.
