    The highlights of this cruise

    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.

Your route takes you towards New Caledonia and Vanuatu to bring dreams of Pacific discovery to life. Even those familiar with the South Seas will be surprised by the unspoilt beauty of the islands – each so impressive that you’ll never want to leave.

    Vanuatu (Tanna, Malakula, Espiritu Santo, Ambrym, Pentecost, Efate, Anatom)

    The people who live on the islands of Vanuatu are said to be the happiest in the world. And it’s no wonder when you look at the blue lagoons, colourful coral gardens and magnificent jungle vegetation. On Tanna, the fiery “lighthouse of the South Seas” will show us the way to worlds of paradise, just as it did for James Cook in 1774. See for yourself on an impressive tour to the Mount Yasur volcanic crater* with breathtaking views. Delve into the exotic rites of the archipelago when you reach Malakula in the Zodiacs. Customs are preserved in their original form here, more so than on the other islands. This is reflected by the more than 30 languages spoken on the island. Words cannot express the fascination of the mystical mask dances performed. Diverse encounters will also define your time in tranquil Luganville on Espiritu Santo before you visit the bright white beach to swim and simply relax. Again and again, be fascinated by the local rituals and traditions – like the seldom-performed Rom dance in magical spirit masks on Ambrym or the Naghol land diving practised only on Pentecost from heights of up to 30 m (98 ft). The island of Efate is the commercial centre of the archipelago. Individual explorations take you through the capital, Port Vila, past the large market hall bursting with fruit and vegetables. When the HANSEATIC inspiration and the Zodiacs take you past the remote beaches of Anatom and the outlying Inyeug Isle, you will feel as if you are in paradise. Go snorkelling among the reefs or join your experts to explore this tropical world.

    Mare/New Caledonia

    Back in New Caledonia, experience once again the crystal-clear waters and small bays with coconut palms, but also the grasslands and coniferous forests – the many faces of this island realm. Mare is one of the green pearls in the turquoise water, and will leave you feeling just like Robinson Crusoe.

When the setting sun bathes the Pacific in glowing tones and you reach the capital, Noumea, this multifaceted Pacific dream will come to a magical conclusion. The many impressions you have gathered on this cruise are sure to stay with you for a long time to come.
