MS Hanseatic

The Hanseatic is specially designed for voyages of discovery. On this small ship, you will feel the pioneering spirit and charm of real seafaring. All the technical requirements for your intensive expedition moments have been met: the highest ice class for passenger ships, shallow draught, numerous inflatable expedition boars (Zodiacs) for explorations and landings. The small ship size enables spontaneous course changes to follow whales, spot polar bears or land in the most beautiful bays, for example. Each day, the captain, expedition leaders and experienced officers will decide which route or landing will offer you the most impressive experience.
The limited number of guests on board makes your well-being a priority; the Hanseatic has 125 crew members for a maximum of 175 guests.
The Hanseatic is exceptional in many respects:the comfortable atmosphere, diverse opportunities to explore and many liggle details create the perfect setting for your very personal expedition. Look forward to a first-class ship that is much more than just an excellent hotel on water.

    All cabins and suites are ideally situated – facing outward with a view of the world’s oceans. The perfect location to prepare for your next destination. The large panoramic windows allow you to enjoy the best views the ocean has to offer. When the ship enters the next harbour, the forward-view camera sends images directly to your flat screen.
