A total of 70,000 nautical miles travelled, 30,000 bottles of champagne consumed, a 97% recommendation rate, and 5-stars plus awarded by the Berlitz Cruise Guide 2014 - these are just some of the highlights of EUROPA 2’s first year of operation.
In recognition of her first birthday, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises is offering savings of €1,920 (£1,500, $2,310) per person, based on double occupancy in a guaranteed Veranda/Ocean suite.

Introduction of new guaranteed Spa/Grand Suite category
Additionally, for guests looking for even more relaxation space, a new guaranteed Spa/Grand Suite category has been introduced – with suites measuring a spacious 52 m² (560 ft²). Based on double occupancy, cruise-only pricing for the above cruises leads in at €6,990 (£5,460, $8,390) per person.
All cruise-only fares include: accommodation; full board on the ship (including all seven restaurants on board); mini-bar in the suite (re-stocked twice per day); a different entertainment programme each day; port fees; share of ship fuel costs; and basic gratuities.
The EUROPA 2 is a modern and casual luxury ship, which does away with cruise traditions such as the captain's dinner, and for the first time has received the highest distinction of a 5-stars-plus ranking from the 2014 “Berlitz Cruise Guide”. With up to 500 guests, the EUROPA 2 provides the greatest space per passenger on a cruise ship anywhere in the world. The ship features exclusively suites with verandas and a minimum area of 35 m². Seven restaurants and six bars are dedicated to serving up culinary diversity and a large spa and fitness area accommodates the well-being trend on cruises. Its concept appeals to professionals and families in the luxury sector in particular.
