Hapag-Lloyd’s Bremen heads east Cruise lines exploit booming expedition sector with raft of new ships


Hapag-Lloyd Cruises is taking passengers through the icy Northeast Passage across the top of Russia on a voyage from Tromsø in Norway to Nome in Alaska next summer. The 27-day voyage,


departing August 11, is one of three English-speaking itineraries on the German cruise line’s expedition ship Bremen ahead of the launch of a ship dedicated to the international markets. Hanseatic Inspiration enters


service in October 2019 and will accommodate up to 230 passengers (199 when cruising in Antarctica). Itineraries have not been released but all cruises will be English


and German speaking. It is just one of an


unprecedented number of expedition ships launching in the next two years as demand for adventurous cruise holidays grows. Ponant is building four ice-


class ships for launch in 2018 and 2019, Lindblad has two expedition ships launching in June and in 2018, and Hurtigruten has orders for two vessels, and options on another two. The first, Roald Amundsen, enters service in July 2018. Even river cruise specialist Scenic and luxury line Crystal Cruises are getting in on the act. Scenic Eclipse is a luxury ice-class mega-yacht with

helicopters and a seven-man sub launching in August 2018. Crystal’s 200-passenger Crystal Endeavor enters service in mid- 2019 and will be followed by two sister ships in 2020 and 2021.
