Expedition Amazon: Travel the world’s most abundant river on the BREMEN and HANSEATIC cruise ships
Their small size means that Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ BREMEN and HANSEATIC expedition cruise ships can travel a particularly long way upstream, giving their passengers first-hand experience of the wonders of the Amazon both on board and during extensive Zodiac rides. The shallow draught of these two ships enables them to travel the more than 4,000-kilometre-long passage from the mouth of the Amazon in Belem/Brazil to Iquitos/Peru and back.
A total of 12 robust Zodiacs await to carry the maximum 164 guests aboard the BREMEN on numerous detours into the fascinating Amazonian environment. The slightly larger HANSEATIC can carry its 184 passengers and has 14 of these inflatable boats (zodiacs) on hand to take guests exploring. After Manaus, the Amazon narrows and flattens – but their shallow draughts allow both cruise ships to continue on to Iquitos. The constant proximity to the world’s largest tropical rainforest, the unusual flora and fauna and the indigenous cultures combine to make Amazon cruises on board the BREMEN and HANSEATIC an exciting adventure.
BREMEN – Expedition Amazon from 10 April 2015 – 26 April 2015 (16 nights) from Iquitos/Peru, in the Upper Amazon to Manaus; onward journey downstream from the Lower Amazon to Belem/Brazil, from GBP £5,700 (per person, cruise only).
