One Ocean Expeditions, the Canadian operator of two ships chartered from Russian principals, will introduce a third ship next year, when the present Hanseatic of Hapag-Lloyd Kreuzfahrten will enter service with the company.
An image on the website of the company shows that the vessel One Ocean plans to introduce next year as RCGS Resolute is the present day Hanseatic. The company has teamed up with the Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS), hence the prefix in the new name of the vessel.
