Hapag-Lloyd Cruises set out on its first voyage over a century ago, and today it provides everything from classic cruises and polar expeditions. The line operates a fleet of four small ships, each of which have their own individual charm and sail to different destinations around the world.
The five ships of the Hapag-Lloyd Cruises fleet are led by industry-leading ship Europa – consistently ranked as the best ship in the world for the tenth consecutive year by Berlitz Complete Guide to Cruising.
The quality of food and service on board, the off-the-beaten-track ports of call and the attentive German staff.
What you should know
The passenger mix is predominantly from Germany but this does not present a problem as all the staff and crew are fluent in English. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises operates several 'bilingual' cruises where all the onboard programmes are printed in English.
May we suggest
You book early for expedition cruises as these sell out very quickly due to the out-of-the-way destinations they visit.
