Hapag-Lloyd Cruises achieved the highest scores in Insight Guides Cruising & Cruise Ships, formerly known as Berlitz Guide to Cruising and Cruise Ships, released this month.

A total of 341 ships were evaluated in the process, and all five luxury and expedition ships of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises received the highest scores. They were the only ships in the world to be awarded five stars by Insight Guides. This achievement earns Hapag-Lloyd Cruises the coveted title of ‘Best Fleet Worldwide.’

Due to the global pandemic, the Berlitz Cruising and Cruise Ships guidebook has been on pause since 2019. Now, the renowned cruise ship and cruise experience guidebook returns under a new name. Insight Guides Cruising & Cruise Ships, released on 1 October 2023, marks the 39th edition of the independent cruise guidebook. This compilation is the result of meticulous evaluations of hundreds of ships and cruise lines worldwide and confirms Hapag-Lloyd Cruises as the world’s premier ships.

In the category of small ships with 251 to 750 passengers, EUROPA 2 took the top spot with the highest score of all reviews, earning the title of the ‘Top-Rated Cruise Ship in the World,’ with her sister ship MS EUROPA close behind.

The expedition ship the HANSEATIC spirit claimed the top spot among boutique ships with 50 to 250 guests, followed closely by the identical expedition newbuilds, the HANSEATIC inspiration and the HANSEATIC nature.

“The recognition of the daily efforts of the crews on board and on land, their dedication to exceptional quality and excellence brings me great joy and pride,” said Julian Pfitzner, CEO of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises. “At the same time, it serves as motivation for the future.”
