    Your ship - HANSEATIC inspiration

    The new expedition class

    The HANSEATIC inspiration was launched in October 2019.

    The wind in your hair and the spray on your skin – become an explorer under an open sky. This is why our 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.

    The sleek skyline of Toronto gradually disappears as the HANSEATIC inspiration begins its journey across the vast Lake Ontario, one of the five Great Lakes of North America. Cruising through the forested Thousand Islands offers an impressive experience at the start of the St Lawrence River, and the subsequent passage through the seven locks is a nautical masterpiece that only a few ships can manage.
