    The highlights of this cruise

    Your ship - HANSEATIC inspiration

    The new expedition class

    The naming ceremony of the HANSEATIC inspiration took place in Hamburg on 11 October 2019. Together with its structurally identically sister ships HANSEATIC nature (2019) and HANSEATIC spirit (2021), the small and state-of-the-art expedition ship explores remote destinations and visits the world’s most fascinating natural landscapes on challenging routes.

    The new expedition class – which offers space for a maximum of 230 guests (or 199 guests on Antarctic cruises and Spitsbergen circumnavigations) – sets standards in terms of variety, comfort and personal space. This is why our ship has more open deck space than any other expedition ship. Find out more! HANSEATIC inspiration was launched in October 2019.

    Saturday, 08.10.2022

    Heligoland, from 7.00 to 13.00 hrs

    Heligoland has one of the most impressive natural landmarks in northern Germany in store for you: the fiery red rock needle Lange Anna, over 45 m high. Gannets and numerous bird species can be observed here. Within sight and reach is one of Germany's small nature reserves: at the Guillemot Rock, guillemots hunt for crabs and small fish. You, on the other hand, are looking for spectacular panoramas, which you will discover on a walk along the 2.8 km cliff edge path or on a ride with the Zodiac.

    Sunday, 09.10.2022

    Zeebrugge/Belgium, from 13.00 to 20.00 hrs

    A diverse array of experiences also awaits in Belgium when you arrive in Zeebrugge. Avant-garde fashion, fine chocolates and the adventures of Tintin and Snowy: Belgian artistry is world-renowned, following in the tradition of the Flemish painter Jan van Eyck, the master of naturalism. The medieval times will still feel just as alive as they do in his oil paintings as you experience romantic Brugge* in the town centre and on a canal trip, for instance. Van Eyck’s famous winged altarpiece, typical guildhalls and a glimpse over a chocolatier’s shoulder: what will be your favourite sensory experience on a walking tour of Ghent*?

    Monday, 10.10.2022

    Isle of Wight/Great Britain, from 10.30 to 18.30 hrs

    Wednesday, 12.10.2022

    Douarnenez/France, from 9.00 to 19.00 hrs

    France has its very own stories to tell in Brittany. From the small fishing port of Douarnenez, a city walk through Quimper* is like a lesson in architecture among the half-timbered houses and the Gothic Breton style of the cathedral. A hike on Cap Sizun* reveals beautiful creations of rock and sand. As you gaze out over the vast sea from the cliffs, you can feel the pioneering spirit of the seafaring nations that await your arrival.
