Hapag-Lloyd Cruises also announced details of the forthcoming COLUMBUS 2.  Currently sailing as Oceania’s Insignia, Hapag-Lloyd has chartered the ship for a period of two years, beginning in April, 2012.  

Painted in Hapag-Lloyd colors and re-christened, COLUMBUS 2 will sail as one of Hapag-Lloyd’s premium vessels focused on unique itineraries and offering one of the highest standards in accommodation for this segment of the market.  While it’s not clear what will change from her current incarnation as Insignia, that may not be a bad thing: the ship is already highly regarded for its intimate atmosphere and old-world, country-club charm.  

To properly introduce COLUMBUS 2,  Hapag-Lloyd will be sending her on a variety of short preview cruises ranging from two to three days in length.  In the summer months, she will sail twelve-day voyages to the Baltics and in the winter of 2012, COLUMBUS 2 will set off on her first World Cruise for Hapag-Lloyd.

More information on COLUMBUS 2 and her initial routes will be made public on Tuesday, January 25th.  Voyages will be open for booking at that time, and we will keep you up-to-date here at From the Deck Chair.
