Hapag-Lloyd Cruises unveils new Scandi options for 2025

Bonus commission and 300 Euro onboard credit on select sailings

Hapag-Lloyd Cruises will once again be offering cruises to Scandinavia in the far north this European winter. The newest member of the fleet, HANSEATIC spirit, will not be going to Antarctica as originally planned but will instead offer expedition cruises to Norway, Sweden and Finland.

On the newly designed routes, two of which are offered bilingual in English/German, HANSEATIC spirit perfectly demonstrates its strengths, taking guests through narrow archipelago and fjord landscapes along wintry coasts.
