Hapag-Lloyd Cruises

Hapag-Lloyd Kreuzfahrten originally belonged to the Hapag-Lloyd Group. Its predecessor company, HAPAG, undertook the first so-called “educational and pleasure voyage” on the ship Augusta Victoria in 1891 on the initiative of the then general manager, Albert Ballin. He wanted to improve the utilization in the demand – weaker winter time. The interest was great and the birth of cruise ships was created. The year 1891 is therefore part of the company’s logo today.

 

While retaining the name Hapag-Lloyd, the business area was made legally independent and 100% sold to TUI AG in 2008. In February 2020, TUI AG parted with half of the shares, and the company has been a 50:50 joint venture with Royal Caribbean since then and thus, making Hapag-Lloyd Cruises part of the same conglomerate.

 

The company is traditionally geared towards the German-speaking market. The language on board is German and sometimes also English. The company’s offering is positioned in the two segments of luxury, yacht-like experiences and expedition cruises. Their principal competitors are AIDA and Phoenix Reisen.
