Construction has started on Hapag-Lloyd Cruises new expedition ship, HANSEATIC nature. 

“After an intense planning stage, we are very pleased commence HANSEATIC nature’s construction process with the first steel cut. The segment of expedition cruises currently offers enormous potential and with two new additions to our fleet next to the very popular Bremen, we are well positioned for the future,” said Karl J. Pojer, CEO of the luxury cruise operator.

The steel cutting of Hapag-Lloyd’s first new expedition ship HANSEATIC nature took place on May 9, with a keel laying ceremony expected to take place next month. The ship, being constructed at the VARD shipyard in Tulcea, Romania, is scheduled to be completed in April 2019, followed by sister-ship HANSEATIC inspiration in October 2019.
