Go even deeper

Your shore excursions and Zodiac rides will be accompanied by countless natural wonders that will leave you speechless, but to see the bigger picture, you need to understand the background. Our new ships take your expedition to the next level with fascinating presentations in the HanseAtrium, personal studies in the Ocean Academy and the perfect equipment for the research trip of your life.


Whales up ahead? Disko Bay in sight? About to pass through the Kiel Canal? Expedition highlights are particularly spectacular under an open sky – and your experts will always be present on the many open deck spaces to provide background information and valuable details that you won’t find in any guidebook. Yearning to explore a specific topic? The experts will be delighted to answer your questions – the thirstier you are for knowledge, the better. After all, what would an expedition be without curiosity?


Draw on our experts’ wealth of knowledge during their daily presentations in the HanseAtrium, the new multifunctional lounge with state-of-the-art technology. Visit the lounge to prepare for upcoming excursions and shed more light on impressions gained (so-called precaps and recaps). Discuss your latest discoveries, enjoy fascinating, relaxed film evenings or listen to our experts’ enthralling travel reports. In the evening, the HanseAtrium is transformed into an atmospheric bar where you can see out the day and reflect on your experiences.

Ocean Academy

A large Study wall and an interactive Study poster display the latest fascinating articles and information on various disciplines and cruise experiences are enhanced with scientific content. A separate area with binocular microscopes allows you to discover natural wonders, together with your experts, that cannot be seen with the naked eye. And whenever inquisitiveness takes hold, sit back in a comfortable Study Seat with a swivel touchscreen and immerse yourself in the world of science – away from the presentations and scheduled events.
