    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!

    Friday, 11.10.2024

    Individual travel arrangements to Hamburg, departure 18.00 hrs
    Evening cruise on the Elbe

    Europe’s monarchies have shaped the continent for centuries. Protected by the crown, church and merchants, unique masterpieces were created in harmony with the landscape. This cruise combines the beauties of former and existing kingdoms into a glorious overall experience. For this, the HANSEATIC spirit sets course from Hamburg southwards to Madeira.

    Saturday, 12.10.2024

    Relaxation at sea

    Sunday, 13.10.2024

    Honfleur/France, from 13.00 to 20.00 hrs

    The jewel of Normandy, Honfleur, starts the show with its half-timbered houses and winding streets. A scenic tour to medieval Rouen* is particularly charming in autumn, when the sun bathes the green hills and meadows in a beautiful light. The same is true for a hike along the Alabaster Coast to Etretat*. The route to the small seaside resort takes you past steep cliffs with inspiring views.

    Monday, 14.10.2024

    Guernsey/Channel Islands/Great Britain

    The Channel Island of Guernsey is perfect for nature lovers and once also provided inspiration for Renoir. The gardens around Saint Peter Port*, glowing in splendid autumnal colours, are the perfect subject for an impressionist painting. A hike along the cliffs* with a composition of coast, bays and rugged rock formations paints unforgettable pictures, too.

    Tuesday, 15.10.2024

    Relaxation at sea

    Wednesday, 16.10.2024

    La Coruna/Spain, from 7.00 to 17.00 hrs

    Even in October, the Iberian peninsula has lost none of its summer flair. Now you can explore La Coruna and the Torre de Hercules without the hustle and bustle of the high season. It is the only lighthouse from Roman times that is still in operation. As a contrast, the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela* will inspire you with its relics and architectural styles – as will the labyrinth of the historic quarter with arcade-lined streets. Tread historic and religious paths with a hike along the final stage of the Way of Saint James*.

    Thursday, 17.10.2024

    Vilagarcia, from 12.00 to 18.00 hrs

    Vilagarcia also sets architectural highlights on the rough Atlantic coast. Enjoy a relaxed walk on the promenade and through the old town at your own pace or discover Galicia* on an excursion.

    Friday, 18.10.2024

    Leixoes (Porto)/Portugal, from 8.00 to 17.00 hrs

    Welcome to Portugal – land of sun-drenched coasts and great cultural treasures. Porto is like an open-air museum of the baroque. Explore the city on the Douro in a tuk-tuk* in a highly original way. Alternatively, take a city walk with a boat trip*. The port wine cellars are situated along the river. Visit a wine cellar where you will have the opportunity to sample this icon of Portuguese culture. Or are the Middle Ages more of a fascination for you? If so, historic Guimaraes* is perfect for you, with a majestic castle, opulent palace rooms and town houses.

    Saturday, 19.10.2024

    Lisbon, from 10.00 to 19.00 hrs
    Cruise on the Tagus

    Lisbon is built on great seafaring history. Portuguese ships set out from the city to explore the world during the Golden Age of the country. As you pass the Torre de Belem, the Monument to Discoveries and under the Ponte 25 de Abril on an impressive cruise on the Tagus, the city will lie at your feet. Take the historic tram* uphill and downhill through the narrow streets and past the most famous landmarks. The numerous steps make your individual explorations a sporty undertaking. Alternatively, the excursion to Sintra and Cascais* reveals the Garden of Eden reserved for the high society of the 19th century, with its exotic plants and a medieval fortress.

    Porto Santo/Madeira, from 12.00 to 19.00 hrs
    Funchal/Madeira/Portugal, arrival 0.00 hrs
    Overnight stay on board

    Part of the Madeira archipelago, Porto Santo is a paradise for hikers and nature lovers. The island tour in an all-terrain vehicle* will reveal many facets of the unique landscape. The sandy beach spanning 9 km (5.5 mi.) is just one example of its idyllic beauty. Horse riding on Porto Santo* takes you on horseback through the Serra de Fora and Serra de Dentro valleys. Whatever the pace of your many experiences – this cruise will add a golden glow to October.
