Hapag-Lloyd Cruises has announced plans to launch two new expedition vessels in April and October 2019. 

The two ships will be built at the Norwegian Vard shipyard of Vard Holdings Limited, a shareholding of the Italian Fincantieri shipyard. The vessels will be equipped with technological features and environmental technology. With PC6, the highest Polar Class designation for passenger ships, 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 Zodiacs will allow landings in otherwise inaccessible expedition areas. The ships will also have a water sports marina.

One of the new-build ships will be aimed at serving German-speaking cruise markets, including Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The other will serve both German-speaking marketings and cruise travelers from Belgium, the UK, the Netherlands and the United States

Each ship will have a maximum passenger capacity of 240 people, with a crew of up to 170. There will be three restaurants, as well as a spa and fitness area. Hapag-Lloyd also promised a high ratio of balcony cabins.
