The new expedition class - A mixture of adventures and comfort

Venture further into regions than other ships, open doors to new experiences that would otherwise remain closed and get exceptionally close to the wonders of nature as the HANSEATIC nature, HANSEATIC inspiration and HANSEATIC spirit take you beyond the reaches of larger cruise ships. Whether you’re heading to the Hebrides or the Azores, to Antarctica or the South Seas, you’ll experience intensive adventures on spectacular routes near and far that always respect the delicate environment – and you’ll share your personal expedition with a small group of no more than 230 passionate explorers. Welcome on board!

After that the HANSEATIC inspiration is an international ship, with all cruises conducted in both English and German.
