Naming ceremony of the HANSEATIC inspiration

Here you can see the film about the christening of the new expedition ship

The HANSEATIC inspiration, the second of three new expedition ships of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises, was christened in the Port of Hamburg on the evening of 11 October 2019. Patron Laura Dekker, the world's youngest single-handed circumnavigator, triggered the mechanism for the traditional champagne bottle from a pontoon specially launched for this purpose. The approximately 230 invited guests experienced the baptism from the Elbe. For the ceremony, the HANSEATIC inspiration became the stage: eleven high-performance beamers projected a 12-minute multimedia show onto the outside of the ship, which took the guests on a virtual journey through the destinations of the expeditions.
