One article is  obviously referring to Scenic Eclipse when they talk about why HL  did not go for the gimmick helicopter and submarine on board.

 

Yes, they decided against those gimmicks. They can be only used by a few passengers but take up a lot of space onboard. So they wanted to have this space for all passengers.

The following videos have a German commentary but visually provide a comprehensive over view of the Hanseatic nature:

The Grand Suite is the only suite with a bathtub, unfortunately.

Given all the bathroom space there is in that bathroom, I am not sure why they only put in such a small solo soaking tub instead of bigger tubs like they have on the E2 , or huge tubs like in the highest suite pictures on Europa and  E2.

Perhaps it is because the narrator does say that the shower in the Grand Suite  is big enough for not just two, but more than two people.  So I guess if I sail Hanseatic with DH that means we could fit in all the English language country of origin pax into our shower, just not both of us in the bathtub. 🙂

That adds an extra dimension to the concept of 'togetherness' !

A Hanseatic nature review in German of an early cruise from May 2019 ( Dublin to Hamburg, so not true expedition) I ran across is below.  Try Google Translate if you do not do German. It appears the infrastructure is having some teething problems ( issues with pool motor for swimming not functioning for first few days, spa problems, clock stuck at 11:00, and clothing hooks falling down)  , but the food and service as expected was outstanding. This pax thought there were too many ship and anchor noises in a cabin towards the front of the ship, even in calm waters, so beware booking in front if you are sensitive.

Catlover,

Yours is a very balanced review. (I assume the second one is yours) In 2020 we are booked on both expedition ships. I wonder how that will be going.

The Hanseatic inspiration has been handed over to Hapag-Lloyd cruises this week and is on it´s way to Hamburg.

The Hanseatic inspiration has been named yesterday evening with a great show! All invited guests were in the zodiacs. Public could follow the ceremony from shore. Great light show and projections on the ship.
