  • Arctic
  • Central and South America

Daytime Entertainment

When you're not on shore excursions you can make memories by exploring what there is to do onboard. From modern gyms with all the equipment needed for an intensive workout to a swimming pool, spa and expert lectures on the destinations, your time on the ship can be as fast paced or as relaxed as you like.

What's more, for those looking for more of a thrill, several ships come equipped with a watersports marina, meaning guests can get off the ship and explore the inviting ocean on zodiacs, sailing boats, kayaks and more.

Evening Entertainment

While the focus on a cruise with Hapag-Lloyd is on the destinations and shore excursions, evenings onboard can be just as unforgettable. With various bars and lounges where you can either enjoy a drink or be blown away by the live entertainment, you can do something different every night.

Covid-19 safety measures

  • Before Cruising

    Before sailing, guests must have filled out a health questionnaire, and at embarkation they will undergo health screening and temperature checks, all while maintaining social distancing.

  • Onboard

    Social distancing continues onboard thanks to reduced ship capacity, smaller groups for entertainment and activities, fewer tables in restaurants and extended dining times. Self-service buffets will also be replaced by table service. In addition, guests will be given facemasks, and conveniently located disinfectant stations will encourage frequent handwashing.

  • Cleaning

    Cleaning protocols have also been altered, with frequently touched surfaces being disinfected every half an hour, cabins and suites cleaned three times a day and a deep cleaning taking place between cruises.

  • Crew

    To ensure crew safety, they will be given additional training, have virus testing, be given masks and have their temperature checked. An increased number of medical staff will be on hand in the case of illness, and a Public Health Specialist will ensure that procedures are adhered to throughout the cruise.
