Breathtaking view

A selection of suites have glass balconies. Not only do you get a beautiful view of the wonderful underwater world here, of the terraced area observation deck the view is to enjoy. Around you you will see dolphins jumping, meeting whales and polar bears taking an icy bath while you look for the next natural wonder at the bow. This is National Geographic in real life. Don't feel like chatting outside in the Arctic? In the observation lounge you can comfortably enjoy a 180 degree view while enjoying a good glass of wine.

Cabins and suites

The sleeping quarters are inspired by nature and are equipped with heated walls in the bathroom. Very nice to hang your wet parka on after an expedition. Furthermore, all suites are equipped with a wonderful rain shower, free minibar, coffee maker, beds that can be separated (even the best couples argue sometimes), SWAROVSKI OPTIK binoculars and Nordic walking sticks.

Adventurous fun

When it's time to eat, sit down in one of the three first-class restaurants who serve international gastronomic dishes. The great thing is that the dinner options are flexible, so you can organize your day the way you want. There is also a 24-hour cabin service. It is certainly relaxing here, because whether you go on a summer or winter cruise, the large outdoor pool is always accessible. Just relax after swimming 20 laps? There is nothing better than a warm steam sauna before your body is woken up by the refreshing sea breeze on the adjacent outside deck. After this you are ready to go on an expedition. This is actually what you are going on a cruise for Hapag-Lloyd: the expeditions. Channel your inner self Freek Vonk and go on an adventure in one of the 17 Zodiacs. This allows you to really immerse yourself in nature and come into contact with pristine coasts and beaches. Experts from different disciplines guide each cruise and will enthusiastically share all their knowledge with you.
