The names of the two new expedition ships that will join the Hapag-Lloyd Cruises fleet have been revealed.
Hapag-Lloyd Cruises are proud to introduce the Hanseatic nature that will debut in April 2019 and the Hanseatic inspiration that will enter service in October 2019. Both ships will feature outstanding routes on their itineraries and will be equipped with modern environmental technology.
The two new ships will offer ports of call in untouched regions as they sail deep in the Arctic, Antarctica and the Amazon. Guests will have the opportunity to experience these remote lands ashore as well as from exceptional viewing points onboard the ships, such as the all-round deck in the forecastle, where passengers will be able to get even closer to the action than the captain himself!
An all new onboard design will be implemented onboard both expedition ships. One of the many highlights will be the two extendible glass balconies that located towards the top of the ship. This is a unique addition that allows guests to feel like as if they are floating over the ocean whilst the ship is in motion.
Hanseatic nature and Hanseatic inspiration will boast the highest ice class for passenger ships, thereby allowing them to break through ice with ease and conduct expeditions far into Polar waters. They will also maximise reduction in fuel consumption using the optimised hulls and the advanced environmental technology. There will be a special propeller onboard the ships that will lower emissions by reducing fuel consumption, as well as a SCR catalytic converter that will reduce nitrogen oxide emissions by nearly 95%.
Both ships will offer an IR ice detector where through the use of an infrared camera guests will be able to spot ice at night and even in unclear weather conditions.
For guests that want to experience the action ashore, there will be a total of 16 onboard Zodiacs and E-Zodiacs which are able to land in remote expedition areas even if the location of the port is far away. There will also be a marina that will give guests the opportunity to do a variety of water sports.
