  1. That adds an extra dimension to the concept of 'togetherness' !
  2. The following videos have a German commentary but visually provide a comprehensive over view of the Hanseatic nature:
  3. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises has posted a video charting the construction of the Hanseatic nature:
  4. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises has posted a video featuring the christening of the Hanseatic nature:
  5. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises has posted a video featuring the official handover of the Hanseatic nature:
  6. Three stars more than Michelin's own maximum award?
  7. The following video is a real trip down memory lane for me with another favourite ship of mine --- The Radisson Diamond: I have fond memories of sailing on her into Venice.
  8. I have great affection for 'the three sisters'. The great advantage of their small size was being able to dock in places inaccessible to large ships. The convenience of embarking at Tower Bridge then cruising down the Thames, and docking opposite The Hermitage.
  9. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises just cites received awards. https://www.hl-cruises.com/cruise-with-us/our-awards
  10. I would contend that they are not subjective opinions but objective assessments based on a set of criteria designed to rule out subjectivity. Is Douglas Ward being untruthful when he states in the Berlitz Guide that the chosen criteria are designed to ensure total objectivity? Out of interest, which European countries award star ratings based on your cited criteria? Over, and above, it's existence, would the size, décor, quality of food, and service in a hotel's restaurant not require assessment?
  11. The 2020-2021 itineraries, and fares, are now available on HL Cruises' English language website. https://www.hl-cruises.com/cruisefinder#template=teaser&sorting=departureDate&filter:ships=9
  12. Berlitz may or may not be the be all and end all, but it does apply a standardised methodology when assessing cruise ships. For some time in the UK Celebrity's tag line, which always made me smile, was 'Five Star Modern Luxury'.
  13. Out of interest does a six star cruise ship/line actually exist? As far as I am aware Berlitz's highest rating is 5+ stars.
  14. As yet no press release on HL's English language website. On it's German language website is the following press release which states, if I have understood it correctly, that the offer of 50% discount is on any HL cruise up to September 2021. https://www.hl-cruises.de/presse/pressemeldungen/detail/verzoegerung-bei-der-werft-auslieferung-der-hanseatic-nature-verspaetet-sich
  15. vistaman, with those bar prices one would be tempted to become teetotal!
