The two places onboard to do just this is at the Observation Lounge and the HanseAtrium where the relaxed ambience, attentive bartenders and exquisite drinks list make the perfect place to enjoy your evening.
Hanseatic Inspiration is well-equipped for fitness enthusiasts to keep up with their workouts during the cruise. The fitness area features state-of-the-art equipment and an adjoining course room, all with an excellent view for guests to enjoy.
After a tiring day exploring, guests can unwind in the large spa complex with a range of soothing treatments and an adjoining outdoor terrace so guests can take in the open air and great views while they relax.
If you’d like to get more involved with your destination head to the marina where you can set out on one of the ship's 17 Zodiacs, ready for the up-close experiences exclusive to expedition ships. Various water-sports equipment is also available, including kayaks, stand-up paddle boards and snorkelling equipment, allowing guests to explore on their own in warm weather.
If you wish to stay onboard, then as well as the ship's central lounge and bar where activities and presentations are hosted, there is also a pool area with its own bar. The pool can be enjoyed no matter the weather thanks to its flexible canopy keeping you covered when you need to be.
Photographers and sightseers can stop by the Observation Deck at the front of the ship where the best views can be found. There are plenty of loungers here if you want to relax, along with mounted binoculars for scanning the horizon. Head a deck lower and you'll find the interior Observation Lounge which keeps you warm and comfortable while enjoying a 180-degree panoramic view.
Inquisitive guests can try out the Knowledge Studio and its interactive presentations, to see what you can learn about your destination and perhaps find some special gems to enhance your experience ashore.
