The naming ceremony for the new expedition ship of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises, Hanseatic Nature, has been canceled.

The showcase event that was planned in London UK 3 days later as part of ship's maiden cruise has been dropped as a result.

The 230-guest vessel is the first newbuild for the German company. According to the TUI-owned cruise line, unfortunately, the handover of Hanseatic Nature was likely to be delayed, bringing uncertainty to their plans.

Regrettably, as a result, they had to cancel the naming ceremony which had been due to take place in Hamburg, Germany on April 12.

Via canceling the time-intensive christening ceremony they were focusing on the preparations for the maiden voyage which was planned to depart on the following day. The planning uncertainty thus forced them to cancel the media and sales event planned for London-Greenwich.
