Your right of course, Hapag Lloyd was later.

Hi Chris! She was originally built 1968 for Norddeutscher Lloyd in Bremen, which merged 1970 with Hapag to Hapag-Lloyd.
It's a bit nitpicking of course, but i remember this difference was very important to some of the former sailors of those vessels.
All the best,
