Numerous awards including "best cruise ship in the world"* - both recognition and inspiration for us - show that the EUROPA 2 is far ahead of other ships thanks to its unique concept. We will continue to raise the bar with our cruises through 2022 with diverse routes, exciting regions, new cruise formats, events and great moments to turn every cruise into an unforgettable memory.

In addition, our travel concierge is waiting to meet your every request for personal travel arrangements. Families, too, will feel at home on the EUROPA 2, thanks to excellent childcare provision and special activities for parents and children.

The new expedition class

To embark on an expedition is to be where nature sets the rhythm. Where experience is your teacher and surprising moments are unforgettable. To embark on an expedition is to get up close. And we will take you there. 

The wind in your hair and the spray on your skin – become an explorer under an open sky. This is why our ships have more open deck space than any other expedition ship. Hear the ice crack as you stand on the bow. Or discover the dense mangrove forests of the Amazon from various perspectives as they pass by at arm’s length.

The expedition ships are planned to launch in April 2019 (HANSEATIC nature) and October 2019 (HANSEATIC inspiration).

Please note: The HANSEATIC nature will be a German-speaking ship, with all cruises conducted in German only. The HANSEATIC inspiration will be an international ship, with all cruises conducted in both English and German.

Explore distant countries, destinations, and continents with the an all-around luxury experience. With the Europa and Expedition ships, you can experience the world in a brand new way. Book with us as we have sailed on their ships, and are ready to support your every request in the planning process.
