    show complete itinerary

    What images of the South Seas are painted by your imagination? You can be sure of one thing: this cruise will exceed them all – starting with the Fiji Islands. Leleuvia offers sandy beaches, shallow waves in watercolour palettes and a abundance of fish fill. A hike to the waterfalls* reveals what life is like on the rainforest island of Taveuni. With its capital Nuku’alofa, Tonga is a true explorers’ kingdom. Experience eventful history, culture and typical local dances on a tour*. Be it the ceremonial welcome from the villagers on the palm-lined island of Foa, which belongs to Ha’apai, or your visit to the main town of Neiafu on Vava’u with its colonial buildings: by now, you will understand why James Cook called Tonga the “Friendly Islands”. The Cook Islands, such as Rarotonga, are almost too good to be true. An island tour* will show you its lagoon with dream beaches and Polynesian culture. On Aitutaki, you can enjoy palm beaches and the underwater world with all your senses. Famous and yet full of secrets is Bora Bora, a pearl of French Polynesia. The tiny island of Motu Mahaea will grant your wish of having your very own South Sea island for a while. The exclusive Zodiac landing on the private island promises a relaxed day on the beach with swimming and snorkelling. The beauty of Raiatea comes from its rocky coasts, steep summits, lush vegetation and dreamlike lagoons. You can also travel by small boat to the neighbouring island Tahaa*, the home of vanilla plantations and black-pearl farming. Finally, the heart-shaped island of Moorea will be a true South Seas declaration of love.

    * The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to change.

    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!
