    The highlights of this cruise

    Your ship - HANSEATIC spirit

    The new expedition class

    The naming ceremony of the HANSEATIC spirit took place off the coast of Helgoland on 24 August 2021. Together with its structurally identically sister ships HANSEATIC inspiration (2019) and HANSEATIC spirit (2019), 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!

Multifaceted spring adventures on the coastline of Western Europe await along the way. The jewel of Normandy, Honfleur, starts the show with its half-timbered houses and winding streets. A scenic tour to Pays d’Auge* is particularly charming in spring, when the sun bathes the green hills and meadows in a beautiful light.

The “Garden of Eden” awaits you in Sintra* in the form of Quinta da Regaleira. The estate enchants with its fantastic park of exotic plants, hidden ponds and grottoes.
