Hapag-Lloyd in 2019

Recommended Posts

It’s only 1 year until Hapag-Lloyd’s twin ships launch and with their combination of traditional expedition, high-end luxury and green technology we at Barrhead Travel are excited, to say the least.


Karl Pojer, CEO of Hapag-Lloyd, unveiled details of the 230-passenger ships Thursday at a press gathering in New York City.


"If you want to be on top, you have to deliver quality," Pojer said.


Some of highlights already revealed include

  • Hanseatic Inspiration will feature three restaurants: a main restaurant, a bistro with outdoor and indoor seating, and a specialty restaurant that will serve a Peruvian-Japanese fusion menu.
  • HanseAtrium, which Pojer calls "the heart of the ship." It will accommodate all 230 passengers, and it includes an ice bar. A second bar will be located in the ships' Observation Lounge.
  • Every sailing will include a minimum of 16 expedition team members, a group comprising biologists, glaciologists, historians and geologists.
  • Ships will feature the 645-square-foot Ocean Academy, a room created purely for education.
  • Nature is a major theme for the ships. Color schemes are inspired by nature's hues, and the environment was an important consideration. The ships will feature onboard sewage treatment systems, for example. They are certified for the highest ice class available for passenger ships, so they can safely sail the Arctic and Antarctic. "We thought our project should be inspired by nature," Pojer said.
  • The ships will feature six different cabin types, including 14 junior suites and four grand suites. All are outside cabins, so no passenger will miss the view even when in their rooms.
