The new expedition class

The naming ceremony of the HANSEATIC inspiration took place in Hamburg on 11 October 2019. Together with its structurally identically sister ships HANSEATIC nature (2019) and HANSEATIC spirit (2021), the small and state-of-the-art expedition ship explores remote destinations and visits the world’s most fascinating natural landscapes on challenging routes.

The new expedition class – which offers space for a maximum of 230 guests (or 199 guests on Antarctic cruises and Spitsbergen circumnavigations) – sets standards in terms of variety, comfort and personal space. This is why our ship has more open deck space than any other expedition ship. Find out more! HANSEATIC inspiration was launched in October 2019.

Friday, 19.05.2023

Toronto/Lake Ontario/Canada
Overnight stay on board

Saturday, 20.05.2023

Toronto/Lake Ontario/Canada, departure 1.00 hrs

With a total area of around 244,000 km2 (94,209 mi.2), the Great Lakes dominate the North American landscape. Filled with the passionate spirit of exploration that once drew settlers to these parts, your adventures start here in Toronto. The lakes are connected by impressive locks. Your cruise will begin with these nautical masterpieces that most ships cannot navigate. Having been built as an expedition ship for such purposes, the HANSEATIC inspiration negotiates the Welland Canal with ease. Eight locks, around 20 bridges and a change in height of 100 m (328 ft): this route demands millimetre precision from the captain and crew. Watch the exciting manoeuvre from the many open deck spaces.

Sunday, 21.05.2023

Windsor/Detroit River, from 7.30 to 19.00 hrs

Before you lies vast Lake Erie and the magnificent passage to the Canadian city of Windsor on the Detroit River. From the ship, you’ll have the best view of the skyline of America’s former “Motor City” on the other bank of the river. Visit Detroit* to discover the roots of American automotive history and the varied architecture of this city that is once again on the up. Follow in the footsteps of Henry Ford* at the museum that bears his name and see former masterpieces of the road and rails.

Monday, 22.05.2023

Tobermory/Lake Huron, from 13.00 to 19.00 hrs

Maritime charm awaits you on your cruise on Lake Huron to the fishing town of Tobermory on Georgian Bay. Let your impressions be shaped by limestone coastlines, small bays and deep-green forests on an individual walk along the Bruce Trail.

Tuesday, 23.05.2023

Parry Sound, from 7.00 to 19.30 hrs

A scenic approach through a small lagoon brings you to Parry Sound, which lies in a watery labyrinth with a distinctly Scandinavian feel. The marine walking trails are a great way to explore this town named after the polar explorer William E. Parry and the nearby lake shore. The spellbinding views on a boat trip of the Thirty Thousand Islands* illustrate why the town is known as the gateway to the archipelago, as narrow channels lead past imposing limestone cliffs to hidden natural treasures. Alternatively, immerse yourself in a panoramic picture in Killbear Provincial Park*, where the pink granite banks merge with the green forest.

Wednesday, 24.05.2023

Killarney, from 7.00 to 14.00 hrs
Cruising on Lake Huron

The island-studded scenery around Killarney welcomes you with unspoilt nature that harks back to the time of the first trappers. The small coastal municipality is still an El Dorado for outdoor activities.

Thursday, 25.05.2023

Sault Ste. Marie/Saint Marys River, from 7.00 to 12.00 hrs

To experience vibrant culture surrounded by magnificent nature, you’ll continue to Sault Ste. Marie. The city is divided not only by a river, but also by the border between Canada on one side and the USA on the other. Make the most of your time here with a walk to the historic locks or a visit to the bushplane museum.

Friday, 26.05.2023

Mackinac Island/Lake Huron/USA, from 8.00 to 19.00 hrs

Mackinac Island is a natural jewel of the Great Lakes and is one of the most beautiful islands in the USA. While Victorian villas and the Grand Hotel recall the 19th century, Fort Mackinac serves as a reminder of the American Revolutionary War. Discover the small tree-covered island independently by bicycle or with a carriage ride.

Saturday, 27.05.2023

Relaxation at sea

Sunday, 28.05.2023

Sturgeon Bay/Lake Michigan, from 8.00 to 17.00 hrs

The Door Peninsula is an insider’s tip on the edge of Lake Michigan. Life is closely tied to the water for the people who live here – both for leisure pursuits such as hiking or kayaking, and for work in the most famous shipbuilding centre of Door County. This symbiosis is immediately evident as you arrive in Sturgeon Bay by tender boat, where this idyllic little city welcomes you with its charm. Head out from here to discover the enchanting Door Peninsula* with its historic brick lighthouses, small fishing villages and expansive fruit and wine-growing regions.

Monday, 29.05.2023

Milwaukee/Lake Michigan/USA, arrival 08.00 Uhr
Overnight stay on board

A vibrant cultural scene has developed in Milwaukee, which was once a centre of brewing. The city tour with a visit to the Milwaukee Art Museum* sheds light on the influence of the German immigrants of days gone by. One particular brand that was founded here has had an impact on the American way of life like no other – find out more at the Harley-Davidson Museum*. Its vehicles symbolise a feeling of great freedom in magnificent nature – just like the feeling you will experience during this cruise into the green heart of North America on board the HANSEATIC inspiration.
