Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ Hanseatic just returned to the sea on English and German speaking expeditions after a three-week scheduled dry-dock at the Lloyd Werft shipyard in Bremerhaven, Germany. Improvements were mostly technical and environmental, with several updates made to the ship’s decor.
Immediately noticeable to guests will be the replacement of the interior photographs with 240 new natural images by famed photographer Michael Poliza. The photos, including aerials of Kamchatka, display Arctic, Antarctic and African regions. Elsewhere, carpets were swapped, the future cruise sales consultation area was renovated and the onboard photographer’s presentation screens were modernized.
On the technical side of things, the ship’s two stabilizers were overhauled and converted to be more environmentally friendly, now running on biopetroleum. Also overhauled were the two main engines.
Earlier in May, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises released Hanseatic's November 2015 to May 2017 itineraries brochure in English in which 11 bilingual expeditions are featured. Upcoming highlights include the Northeast Passage, Arctic, Antarctic, Amazon, South Seas islands and Chilean fjords.
