Vard has secured contracts for the design and construction of two luxury expedition cruise vessels for German cruise company Hapag-Lloyd Cruises.
Developed by Vard in cooperation with Hapag-Lloyd Cruises, the vessels are specially designed for cruises in polar regions in the Arctic and Antarctica, but are also prepared for operations in warm water destinations such as the Amazon.
The luxury expedition cruise vessels will be approximately 16,100 gross tonnes, about 138 metres long and 22 metres wide.
Each vessel has seven passenger decks, with accommodation for a total of 240 passengers in 120 cabins and suites. The vessels will also feature a water sports marina and modern spa and fitness areas.
The hulls of the vessels will be built by Vard’s shipyard in Tulcea, Romania, and delivery is scheduled from Vard Langsten in Norway at the beginning of 2019 and the end of 2019 respectively.
