Antwerp to host christening ceremony for Hapag-Lloyd newbuild in 2019
Hapag-Lloyd Cruises is to name its new expedition vessel Hanseatic Inspiration in Antwerp on 13 October 2019. Hanseatic Inspiration’s christening will mark the first time the Belgian port city has hosted an official naming ceremony for an ocean cruise ship. “Hanseatic Inspiration will be the first ocean-going cruise ship to be christened in the city of Antwerp,” said Koen Kennis, deputy mayor of Antwerp. “That is something very special. On behalf of the city of Antwerp, I would like to thank Hapag-Lloyd Cruises for the years of trust and confidence that the company has shown in the city.” Following her naming ceremony, Hanseatic Inspiration will embark on a 15-day maiden voyage from Antwerp to Tenerife
