Hapag-Lloyd Cruises are the inventors of cruisesHapag-Lloyd Cruises were there from the start
When in 1891 Albert Ballin sent the Augusta Victoria forthe first pleasure cruise on the Mediterranean,thus inventing the cruise, he had no idea how the cruise experience would change. Today, more than 160 years after its founding, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises is the leading provider of luxury cruises in Germany. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises has five ships. The EUROPA and EUROPA 2 were nominated by the Complete Guide to Cruising and Cruise Ships as the only cruise ships with the title "5 star plus" , making them the best ships in the world. The HANSEATIC is the only expedition ship, which received 5 stars. The BREMEN, equipped with the highest ice class for passenger ships, will take you to the North Pole and to the South Pole. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises has only one goal - that you are happy at all times!

- The onboard languages offered vary depending on the cruise line. In addition to the German cruise lines AIDA, TUI Cruises and PHOENIX, cruise lines such as Costa and MSC also offer German-speaking contact persons and shore excursions. The onboard languages offered are usually specified in the travel advertisement. There is also the option of filtering according to a desired language.
- Do you travel alone? With the whole family? Do you prefer the big adventure in nature or do you want to be entertained as well? There is a suitable lid for every pot - and that's just the same with cruises: apart from a variety of routes, the various cruise lines also show their own individual orientations.
If you are traveling alone, a single cabin will be important to you. Only a few cruise lines offer pure single cabins, usually a single cabin surcharge is calculated for the double cabin used alone. You will find what you are looking for on Norwegian Cruse Line, the cruise line offers extra single cabins. You may also find offers without extra charge at Hapag Lloyd Cruises or at Royal Caribbean.
Whether baby, toddler or teen - on a journey with children different requirements apply than on a cruise alone or in pairs. So the little ones want to be active. If you are planning a family cruise, make sure that there is an entertainment program for children. For example, AIDA Cruises or Costa Cruises are very child-friendly. But also many other cruise lines have specialized on the smallest guests, worthwhile here is an individual consultation with kreuzfahrten.de.
And as far as entertainment and shore excursions are concerned, cruises are as varied as a journey can be. If you do not want 24-hour entertainment, you will surely choose a different ship than the one who expects a selection of great shows, possibly several a day. We are happy to help you in your search for the right ship!
