This last of three sister vessels is scheduled to enter service in May 2021. Bookings will open July 23.
As with the earlier two ships, Hanseatic Spirit's hull will be constructed at Tulcea then towed to Norway for outfitting.
Adults-only ship tailored to German-speakers
Hanseatic Spirit is designed for the German-speaking market as an adults-only ship that will carry passengers aged 18 and up.
It is going to replace Bremen, which has been sold to Scylla AG for operation outside the German market, with delivery in spring 2021.
Northwest Passage and the Ring of Fire
Hanseatic Spirit is planned to sail the Northwest Passage in its first season. The 30-day cruise embarks at Kangerlussuaq in western Greenland, Aug. 13, 2021, bound for Anchorage.
After that the ship will explore the Ring of Fire, calling at Kamchatka, the Aleutian and Kurile Islands, on a 23-day itinerary.
