About Hapag Lloyd Cruises

Hapag Lloyd specialise in small-ship, luxury cruising and their ships are highly regarded for their beautiful style, sense of space and European atmosphere. Hapag Lloyd Cruises have been operating to the German market for a number of years, but their two newest ships Europa 2 and Hanseatic Inspiration are firmly focussed on an international market, attracting passengers from around the world. When on-board a cruise with Hapag Lloyd, you can enjoy a discerning lifestyle in a modern, relaxed atmosphere with no formal attire, fixed mealtimes, or traditional seating plans in the restaurants.

Europa 2 and Ocean Cruising

The Europa 2 has been awarded the best cruise ship in the world, according to the prestigious Berlitz Cruise Guide 2020. All dining is included in the fare with a selection of fantastic restaurants to choose from. Restaurant Weltmeere is the main dining room with a striking design and large windows. Here you will find a delicious ever-changing menu with tables to socialise and plenty of private tables for two as well. Tarragon is one of the ships most popular restaurants and offers great French cuisine and bistro classics served in an art-deco-style setting. Sakura is also a popular choice serving exquisite sushi, with dishes ranging from classic to creative, which you can enjoy in a stylish setting.

For entertainment, the ship offers a great range of bars to enjoy a delicious cocktail or two, Club 2 plays host to live music on a nightly basis and Sansibar is the little sister of one of Germany’s most famous beach bars! There is also a theatre set up in a round style, which plays host to a number of great performances throughout your cruise.

Hanseatic Inspiration and Expedition Cruising

The Hanseatic Inspiration brings Hapag Lloyd’s pioneering spirit for exploration by offering an amazing range of expedition cruising around the world. The ship boasts that it offers more deck space than any other expedition ship in its class, including a platform that cantilevers over the side of the ship, to offer views down to the sea line – perfect for whale spotting! The idea of a Hapag Lloyd expedition cruise is to learn as well as explore, and each expedition cruise is accompanied by a team of experts in their field who will bring the destination to life! This is complemented with lectures in the HanseAtrium and a fantastic interactive learning centre called the Ocean Academy. As you would expect from Hapag Lloyd Cruises, the finer things are still taken care of with a fantastic restaurant, great Atrium bar called Blue and a range of spacious and exquisite accommodation. So why not head off to The Arctic, Antarctica, Greenland or Europe aboard the HANSEATIC Inspiration?
