MS Hanseatic is fitted out for adventure, but also for deep comfort. She is the only expedition ship in the world to have been awarded 5 stars by the respected Berlitz Cruise Guide 2015.

Cabins and suites are spacious, the furnishings elegant. The atmosphere is intimate with only 175 like-minded guests aboard, and service is attentive. 

Culinary highlights range from breakfast on deck to Ethno Dinners with regional specialities. There are also surprising moments such as a barbecue or a Scandinavian sausage party. Refined cuisine is served in the Marco Polo Restaurant.

The small group of no more than 175 guests provides a particularly personal atmosphere and a markedly large amount of personal space – be it in the stylish cabins and suites, the exquisite selection of culinary delights or the many unforgettable expedition moments. Enjoy your very personal expedition, spellbound by fascinating views of the sea or enthralling expert presentations.

Fascinating lectures and discussions hosted by renowned experts are popular, as are facilities such as the Observation Lounge, whirlpool and library. Hanseatic is also equipped for individual activities with bicycles, fishing rods and snorkelling gear.
