Flexibility and diversity has linked ZWIESEL KRISTALLGLAS with Hapag-Lloyd Cruises since November 2011. Suitable tableware and glasses are essential for excellent meals. In order to attain a modern and casual atmosphere, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises therefore decided to expand their offer of wine glass products through a partnership with ZWIESEL KRISTALLGLAS.
The individuality of the brands SCHOTT ZWIESEL and ZWIESEL 1872 is suitable for any occasion, no matter whether it is exclusive hand-blown glasses for a festive dinner or the Bar Special series, which impresses with its functionality and elegance. With this cooperation, ZWIESEL KRISTALLGLAS not only leaves its marks on the cruise ships, but also wherever the voyages go.
About Hapag-Lloyd Cruises
In the German-speaking region, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises is the leading provider of luxury and expedition cruises. It currently has five ships in its fleet.
Hapag-Lloyd Cruises ships are small, individual and outstanding in their class: the EUROPA class is made up of the EUROPA and EUROPA 2, the world’s best luxury ships and the only ships to receive the highest distinction of 5-stars-plus from the Berlitz Cruise Guide. It offers the highest standard of cruise experiences with excellent service, varied cuisine and exceptional routes around the world.
Hapag-Lloyd Cruises is expanding in the expedition segment with three state-of-the-art ships: the HANSEATIC nature (5 stars*) and HANSEATIC inspiration (5-star standard**), the first two ships in the new, three-ship expedition class, were launched in 2019. In May 2021, they will be joined by the HANSEATIC spirit, which will replace the BREMEN (4 stars*). The new expedition class has the highest ice class and a shallow draught, allowing the ships to navigate both the polar regions (Arctic and Antarctic) and warmer destinations like the Amazon.
A further option in the portfolio is extraordinary experiences aboard the luxurious private jet, the ALBERT BALLIN, which is a particularly exclusive way to travel.
*Berlitz Cruise Guide 2020
**Currently there is no classification by the Berlitz Cruise Guide. In own estimation, the comfort standard corresponds approximately to that of our MS EUROPA / MS EUROPA 2 ships, which were awarded the "5-star plus" rating by the Berlitz Cruise Guide 2020.
