A popular port of call on any European cruise, Hamburg is a thriving port city with plenty to offer. Once onshore, you'll see countless maritime attractions and seafood restaurants with fresh catches of the day. We recommend a city tour to admire the canals and lakes, as well as the World Heritage Site, Speicherstadt. To dive in on Hamburg's seafaring history, head to the International Maritime Museum, home to numerous artefacts and exhibitions.
DAY 3 - 09 May 2021
Gdansk (Gdynia), Poland
DAY 4 - 10 May 2021
Beginning as a humble fishing village, Gdynia has since established itself as one of Poland's main harbours. Though almost all attractions are modern and contemporary, visitors will find traces of historic architecture, such as the 17th-century neo-Gothic manor house. Explore the numerous museums to dive in deeper on the past at the Warship Museum, or if you're just looking to relax and enjoy leisurely outdoor activities, head to the city beach.

Hapag-Lloyd Covid-19 safety measures
At embarkation, all guests must have completed a health questionnaire, undergo health screening and have their temperatures taken. Social distancing will be facilitated through reduced ship capacity, less tables in restaurants and longer opening times to extend dining times. Self-service buffets in restaurants will no longer be available. While entertainment and activities will still take place, they will do so in smaller groups to ensure that guests can stay at a safe distance from one another.
When it comes to cleaning, disinfectant dispensers will be located across the ship, especially in public areas. Innovative air conditioning systems will mean that all air is fresh and clean, while frequently touched surfaces will be cleaned every 30 minutes, cabins and suites three times a day and a deep clean will be carried out after each cruise.
Crew are looked after with additional training, COVID-19 testing, temperature checks and face masks. Increased numbers of medical staff will be onboard in case of illness, and a Public Health Specialist will be onboard each cruise to ensure that all procedures are followed.
