Hapag Lloyd is a German cruise line that offers cruises to the world's more remote regions, following in the footsteps of the great explorers on smaller bilingual cruise ships. A selection of adventure voyages are offered each year with both German and English spoken in commentaries and lectures. Itineraries include Arctic and Antarctic regions and offer magnificent realms, rare encounters and top-of-the-line accommodations for those seeking adventure. Hapag-Lloyd is the result of the merger in 1970 of two of Germany's oldest steam ship companies, Hapag (Hamburg-Amerikanische Packfahrt-Actien-Gesellschaft or Hamburg America Line) and Norddeutscher Lloyd (NDL - North German Lloyd). Both companies were founded in the 1840s to carry passengers and freight between what is now Germany and the United States. Hapag was founded in Hamburg, while North German Lloyd served Bremen. After the merger Hapag-Lloyd discontinued its transatlantic passenger service, but in 1982, the line returned to cruising with the launch of Europa, a cruise ship that set the standard for luxury and service in the German market. Seventeen years later, Hapag-Lloyd introduced its new flagship, also Europa, almost the same size as her predecessor, but carrying 200 fewer passengers. Today, the line boasts four passenger-carrying motor ships, marketed primarily to German-speaking Europeans, and has begun an effort to increase awareness of the line's offerings on three of their cruise ships among English-speaking passengers. The present Hapag-Lloyd motor fleet is comprised of four cruise ships, the luxurious flagship Europa, the luxury expedition ship Hanseatic, the small, premium ship Columbus, and the premium expedition ship Bremen. (Bremen is not marketed outside German-speaking Europe.)
