    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.

    Relaxation at sea

    Saturday, 02.03.2024

    Sao Francisco do Sul/Brazil, from 8.00 to 14.00 hrs

    The HANSEATIC inspiration will also set sail for grand discoveries, starting in one of Brazil’s oldest cities, Sao Francisco do Sul. Stories of immigrants from the 19th century unfold in Blumenau, the German city* – with half-timbered houses like you see in the Black Forest. The same colonial roots will shape your visit to Joinville*, where European charm can be felt in the cathedral and beyond.

    Sunday, 03.03.2024

    Parati, from 13.00 to 0.00 hrs

    In Parati explore a particularly well preserved UNESCO World Heritage Site in the colonial style with a walk through historic Parati*, where stylish houses with whitewashed facades and colourful windows reflect the riches brought by the great gold rush. A schooner trip, snorkelling and swimming* await on an excursion to the bays and beaches of the outlying islands with their exotic flora.

    Monday, 04.03.2024

    Ilha Grande, from 6.00 to 23.00 hrs

    The majority of Ilha Grande is a natural Garden of Eden of barely accessible jungle. The island formerly inhabited by the Tupinamba people is now a dream destination for nature lovers and hikers. Once a pirate hideaway, it was later colonised by the Portuguese and became an infamous place of imprisonment. Find out more about the island’s colourful history and its flora with a boat ride and hike to Lopes Mendes Beach*. This hidden bay will reward your efforts with powder-white sand and turquoise water.

    Tuesday, 05.03.2024

    Rio de Janeiro, from 7.00 to 21.00 hrs

    The laid-back beach life provides a contrast with vibrant Copacabana, your next destination. Like Christ the Redeemer on Mount Corcovado, Rio de Janeiro will welcome you with open arms and a zest for life. On the city tour and Sugarloaf Mountain* excursion, feel the heart of the city between wonderful colonial buildings and the monumental Maracana Stadium. Enjoy very special views with a helicopter flight over Rio*. If you’re hungering for some culinary temptations, embark on an exceptional tour through markets to street food trucks and little bars: Eat Rio – facets of Brazilian cuisine*. The mountains above Rio reveal imperial aspects with the palace of the former emperor, Dom Pedro II, in Petropolis – the imperial city*.

    Wednesday, 06.03.2024

    Armacao dos Buzios, from 7.00 to 18.00 hrs

    Big-city life gives way to the charms of a glamorous holiday destination of international renown in the formerly sleepy fishing village of Armacao dos Buzios, which was brought to fame by Brigitte Bardot and Jacques Cousteau in the 1960s.

    Thursday, 07.03.2024

    Relaxation at sea

    Discover how beautiful the curvaceous coastlines are with a schooner trip to the beaches of Buzios*. Relax on the sandy shore or keep an eye out for sea turtles as you snorkel.

    Friday, 08.03.2024

    Porto Seguro, from 7.00 to 14.00 hrs

    Explore Porto Seguro in the spirit of Pedro Álvares Cabral, who first made land near here when he discovered Brazil. Take a stroll through the historic upper town or simply relax on idyllic beaches – the choice is yours. Gain an insight into the life and rituals of the Pataxo Indians at Jaqueira Indian Reserve*, or embark on a jungle hike in the Mata Atlantica*. Take a look behind the green curtain and investigate the rustling, chirping, buzzing and calls. Which animals will show themselves?

    Saturday, 09.03.2024

    Salvador, from 7.00 to 17.00 hrs

    Colonial history and the Afro-Brazilian way of life are closely intertwined in Salvador. The “sacred city” earned its UNESCO World Heritage status thanks to sights such as its baroque cathedral, which you will see on a walk through the old town of Salvador*. The city is a cradle of the acrobatic martial art and dance form capoeira, which impressively reflects how life here is shaped by music and dance. Away from the typical tourist routes, rhythm and cultural riches come alive in an exciting percussion workshop* or with a market visit and cookery course*.

    Sunday, 10.03.2024 to
    Wednesday, 13.03.2024
