Short description:
The three ships will be built at the Norwegian Vard shipyard, and vessels will be equipped with state-of-the-art technological features and environmental technology, including the highest Polar Class designation for passenger ships, PC6. This rating means they will be able to cruise not only in polar regions in the Arctic and Antarctica, but also in warm water destinations such as the Amazon. On-board 17 Zodiacs will allow landings in otherwise inaccessible expedition areas. The ships will also feature a water sports marina and three restaurants, a spa and fitness area.
The HANSEATIC nature, the first of the three, new Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ expedition ships, will set sail on its maiden cruise. This ship is aimed exclusively at the German-speaking market. In October it will be followed by the launch of its international, bilingual sister ship, the HANSEATIC inspiration and the HANSEATIC spirit in 2021, which will also be aimed exclusively at the German-speaking market. These small, first-class expedition ships featuring cutting-edge technology have the highest ice class for passenger ships (PC6). They can accommodate up to 230 guests, or 199 guests on Antarctic cruises. The almost identical ships raise the bar in the expedition cruise segment and feature numerous details and facilities that enhance the expedition experience even more. Retractable glass balconies on the Sun Deck give guests the feeling of hovering directly above the water and guests can stand on the foredeck of the ship to be closer to the action – even closer than the captain.
Experts will give daily presentations in the HanseAtrium, a multifunctional lounge with the latest technology and large LED screens on the walls and below the ceiling. On Deck 8, the heart of the Ocean Academy is the study wall, a 6-meter by 1.8-meter touchscreen wall. There passengers can conduct individual studies and research to deepen their knowledge of the natural wonders they encounter on shore excursions and Zodiac rides.
Hapag-Lloyd Cruises has announced that it will only be burning low-sulfur marine gas oil (MGO) on the three ships Hanseatic Nature, Hanseatic Inspiration from July 2020, as well as the Hanseatic Spirit, set to join the fleet in 2021.
In particularly vulnerable areas such as the Arctic, Antarctica and Kamchatka, Hapag-Lloyd said in a prepared statement that it has been using MGO for a number of years, before the corresponding legal regulations have taken effect. The new expedition ships are also equipped with SCR catalysts, reducing nitrogen oxide emissions by almost 95 per cent, and shore power connectors.
According to Hapag-Lloyd, the routes are planned and managed on the basis of an eco-efficient average speed, reducing fuel consumption by one third. Moreover, the ships have seawater desalination systems to produce clean water and biological sewage treatment systems for wastewater. Environmentally-acceptable biological lubricants are used for the bow thrusters and stabilizers. The efficiency of the hull form was optimized using DNV GL’s unique formal optimization approach. The stern was optimized for passenger comfort by minimizing impact from slamming.

Six different types of suites and cabins
The various types of suites and cabins consists of the 120 cabins and suites range from 22 m2 for a Panorama Cabin to 71 m2 for a Grand Suite. There are exclusively outside cabins, almost all of which feature their own balconies or a French balcony.
The approx. 100 m2 fitness area is located next to the Ocean Spa. With floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows and its own outdoor areas, nature is omnipresent here as well. While the ships cruise through the icy scenery of the polar regions of the Arctic and Antarctic, or through the warmer waters of the Amazon, or the South Seas, guests can stay active in these two areas.
State-of-the-art equipment is available, as well as a fitness studio with a glass front which can be fully opened out on to its own outdoor area. A fitness trainer is available to help guests use the equipment, as well as being on hand for personal training classes, in the gym, or for core training, Pilates and Antarctic sun salutation. The sports facilities on board are based on the three pillars of relaxation, balance and strength.
Right next to the fitness area is the spacious Sun Deck, with the pool area covering about 630 m2. The flexible canopy means it can be used whatever the weather.
