Hapag-Lloyd to offer Northwest Passage Voyage

This August, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises will be offering a unique Northwest Passage voyage aboard the Hanseatic, which is the worlds only five star-rated expedition ship. Departing from Greenland on August 16 2013, the expedition ship will set sail on a twenty four day voyage cruising due north of the Arctic Circle before ending up in Nome, Alaska on September 9.

The Northwest Passage is one of the most famous sea routes in existence, however due to the length of the voyage it is essential that ships accurately forecast the provisions that will be required, not only for the ship to successfully transit the Northwest Passage, but also to maintain the five-star standards expected aboard the ship.

Polar Bears

Due to the shallow draught of the Hanseatic, the expedition ship will be able to sail close to the Canadian Arctic Coast, which will give the guests on board the opportunity to view polar bears, bald eagles and even whales whilst admiring the glacial coasts along the route. Other planned highlights during this unique voyage may include a visit to a former whaling base on Herschel Island and a call to Barrow in Alaska, which is the most northern city in the world.
