Hapag-Lloyd's new expedition ship Hanseatic Inspiration will sail itineraries as diverse as the Amazon and the U.S. Great Lakes after making its debut in October 2019.

The 230-passenger ship will be one of a pair, with sister ship Hanseatic Nature serving the German-speaking market. The Hanseatic Inspiration will be an international ship.

The maiden voyage of Hanseatic Inspiration departs Antwerp, Belgium, on Oct. 14, 2019, on a 15-day tour of western Atlantic ports such as Lisbon; Casablanca, Morocco; and Honfleur, France. It concludes in Tenerife, Canary Islands.

Voyages in 2020 include March 25-April 11 on the Amazon, and June 3-17 on the Great Lakes, the first time in nearly a decade a Hapag-Lloyd ship will sail there.
