The new expedition class

A mixture of adventures and comfort

The wind in your hair and the spray on your skin – become an explorer under an open sky. This is why our new expedition ships HANSEATIC nature, HANSEATIC inspiration and HANSEATIC spirit (from 2021) 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 nature and HANSEATIC spirit will be a German-speaking ship, with all cruises conducted in German only. The HANSEATIC inspiration will be an international ship, with all cruises conducted in both English and German.
