A multimedia show had been organized for the guests who were to be christened in rubber dinghies or on barges. The event took the guests on a virtual journey to the most remote corners of the world: travel destinations were the Arctic and Antarctic as well as the Amazon region. Ice landscapes, whales, penguins, green jungle oases, colorful birds and much more were projected onto the outside of the ship.

The illusion was created by eleven high-performance projectors. They created a 140-meter-wide and 22-meter-high 3D mapping on the outside of the person to be baptized. There was also music and, after the christening, a statement from Karl J. Pojer, CEO of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises. “With today's christening ceremony we gave our guests a foretaste of the expedition trips that they can experience with the HANSEATIC inspiration from now on. Our second ship in the new expedition class is another milestone in our company's history. With the three new ships, we are positioning ourselves in the exclusive expedition segment, namely - as HANSEATIC nature has already demonstrated - in the five-star category ”.
