    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!

    Cruising through British Columbia’s
    Inside Passage/Canada
    Alaska’s Inside Passage/USA:

    Pioneers once came here in search of gold, but today Alaska’s treasure is its wild beauty. Just like the novels of Jack London, one of the world’s most spectacular shipping passages will satisfy your longing for exploration. Guided by the same feeling of great freedom experienced by the early settlers, your adventure begins with a two-day cruise through British Columbia’s Inside Passage. From the spirit Walk, enjoy views of myriad islands, thickly wooded mountains and small settlements slowly passing by on the shore. You might catch your first glimpse of bald eagles flying through the air, and maybe even whales.

    Ketchikan, from 6.00 to 18.00 hrs

From here, take the opportunity to go bear watching at Anan Creek* where, with luck, you will spot black and brown bears. Take a flight over the Misty Fjords* to see the deep inlets, snow-covered mountains and roaring waterfalls. A jeep and canoe trip on Revillagigedo Island* allows you to experience this idyll “off-road”.

    Wednesday, 07.08.2024
