Scylla Acquires MS Bremen

By ,   January 16, 2019 ,   Cruise Industry

The expedition ship MS Bremen is due to leave the fleet of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises. The company officially announced the sale of the ship for the end of April 2021. 

Already in 2019, Hapag-Lloyd relies on two new ships, Hanseatic Nature (from April) and Hanseatic Inspiration (from October). Both newbuilds (currently under construction) are part of a new series of expedition vessels for the cruise line. In 2021, a 3rd new ship, Hanseatic Spirit, will be added. The new addition marks the farewell to MS Bremen.  

After the sale to a Scylla AG subsidiary, the popular expedition ship will probably no longer be offered on the German-speaking market.

Whether Madagascar, Africa, Seychelles, New Zealand, Western Europe, or Asia, MS Bremen is one of the ships that were almost everywhere. It scores with a shallow draft and easily meets the requirements of smaller natural harbors. In addition, it also meets the highest, for passenger vessels applicable ice class and is ideal for expedition cruises in the Arctic and Antarctic.

MS Bremen, built in 1990 in the shipyard Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in Japan, has been part of the Hapag-Lloyd Cruises' fleet since 1993.
