Knowledge Studio serves Hapag-Lloyd's Ocean Academy program allowing passengers to do their own researches during the cruise. The new user-friendly digital concept for onboard learning became industry's first introduced on expedition cruise ships. The new "Study Wall" represents an innovative touchscreen technology (screen size 6x1,8 m / 20x6 ft) allowing travelers to research information and various topics related to ship's current cruise itinerary destinations. The digital wall was developed via partnership with two German companies (Intermediate Engineering GmbH, and mgp ErlebnisRaumDesign GmbH).

The Study Wall is installed in the Knowledge Studio, which also has four Study Seats (with touchscreens to explore the content), Study Poster (visual scientific explanations), a dedicated area for microscope research.
