Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ Ships

There are five ships in the Hapag-Lloyd Cruises fleet. MS Europa 2 and MS Hanseatic Inspiration are best placed for the international market, offering bilingual cruises with English shore excursions.

MS Europa 2 is a modern luxury cruise ship and has been awarded the 5-stars-plus in the Berlitz Cruise Guide since she launched in 2013, while the new MS Hanseatic Inspiration is purpose-built for expedition-style cruises in Antarctica, South America, Africa and the Arctic.

The fleet is rounded off by MS Europa (1999), with a new expedition ship, MS Hanseatic Spirit, joining MS Hanseatic Nature (2019) in offering cruises for German-speaking guests only.
