Ship Details

Hanseatic Inspiration

Hanseatic Inspiration

Operated by: Hapag Lloyd Cruises

Launched in 2019, the new Hanseatic Inspiration is built to the most stringent Polar Class 6 codes. Small, manoeuvrable and with a shallow draught, this new class of expedition ship will find its way to the most remote corners of the planet. Where other ships would have long since given up, your expedition begins – and with it your journey of self-discovery.

Hanseatic Inspiration's 230 travellers (capped to 199 in Antarctica) will enjoy more open deck space than on any other expedition ship, while the deck tour at the bow and the glass balconies offer new perspectives on all sides. Fascinating talks in the HanseAtrium and the interactive Ocean Academy will take you on your own personal research trip. And wherever possible, the Zodiacs will take you up close to exotic nature and foreign cultures. Expect the unexpected and the extraordinary every day.

Hanseatic Inspiration offers English-speaking expedition voyages.
