The Hanseatic from Hapag-Lloyd Cruises will remain in the fleet for six more months, until the end of September 2018. The first of the Germany-based cruise provider’s two new expedition ships will be launching in April 2019. The international preview brochure, due to be published in mid-December, will contain two international cruises on board the Hanseatic, as well as three international expedition cruises on board the Bremen. The cruises on the Bremen are intended to serve as a transition until the launch of the new international expedition ship, which will offer bilingual (English/German) cruises.
Hapag-Lloyd Cruises will launch two new expedition ships in April 2019 and October 2019. The two new ships are being built by the Norwegian shipyard VARD and will have the highest ice class for passenger ships (PC6). They will both accommodate up to 230 guests, and up to 199 guests on Antarctic cruises.
