Answering the call for new and exciting adventures on cruise ships, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises has announced a wide variety of new cruises aboard their purposefully appointed expedition ships, MS HANSEATIC and MS BREMEN.

For detials about their new expedition cruises to Alaska, Spitsbergen, Iceland, Greenland, The Northwest Passage, The Amazon, The Chilean Fjords, Antarctica, The South Seas, New Zealand, Antarctica, Africa and Madagascar, take a look at the news release at Prow’s Edge News Release about Hapag-Lloyd Cruises.

Both the 184 guest HANSEATIC, the world’s only 5-star expedition ship and the 164 guest BREMEN, a 4-star plus expedition ship specialize in expedition cruises.  Both ships are well equipped for travel in difficult waters, holding the highest ice class ranking for passenger vessels (E4).

Their shallow drafts and high manoeuvrability allow these ships to enter waters larger cruise vessels cannot reach. 

Guests explore the world’s best-kept secrets in zodiacs (small motorized boats) with only 10-12 guests.

Onboard experts include a team of experienced scientists, expedition leaders and specialists who guide landings and offer guests the rare opportunity to observe plant and animal life up close.

What also makes these expedition adventures standout for guests is the security of knowing that highly experienced captains are guiding the vessels and have together already traveled to the Arctic and Antarctica more than 200 times.
