    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.

On Disko Island, enter Qeqertarsuaq through a whalebone gateway leading to a world of colourful houses, kayaks and huskies. Natural wonders await in Ilulissat: enjoy a hike with your experts to the ice fjord with views of the ice masses that gather here. Disko Bay has even more spectacular sights to offer. Glittering sculptures drift through the water – with you at the centre as you cruise or take a Zodiac ride.
