Ports

Melbourne

Dubbed one of the world’s most liveable cities, Melbourne has much to offer the day visitor. The locals’ passion for culture, fashion, food and music has created a swanky, cosmopolitan air. The city’s suburbs present a rich blend of architecture, cuisine and atmospheres. Take a trip to Albert Park Lake, Melbourne’s arts and cultural centre or sample one of myriad restaurants. With one of the world’s largest Greek communities outside of Greece, the Moussaka is much recommended!

Burnie

Burnie, Tasmania is situated on the North West coast of 'The Apple Isle'. This deep-water anchorage was once called Emu Bay. Today the town owes its growth to the development of its forest-based industries, the largest of which is the paper maker, Australian Paper (Amcor). Attractions include the Pioneer Village Museum, Civic Centre Precinct, Regional Art Gallery, Rhododendron Gardens, Annsleigh Gardens, Guide Falls, Burnie Park, Lactos Cheese Factory, Trout fishing at Lake Kara and the Amcor Paper Mills.

Port Arthur

Hobart

Hobart is Australia's second oldest city and state capital of Tasmania. Home to more than 90 National Trust buildings, Hobart combines colonial character with a metropolitan lifestyle. It is the gateway to Tasmania's other scenic attractions and a range of shore activities lets you experience the best of both worlds.

Explore the historic core at the colonial village of Battery Point, the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, as well as Theatre Royal, the country's oldest theater. There's also wine-tasting and pub-hopping to enjoy.

Dunedin

The Gaelic word for Edinburgh is Dunedin and, not surprisingly, this one retains a number of close links with the Scottish capital. Not only are many of the street names the same, other reminders include the railroad station, University Clock Tower and Gothic Revival Dominican Priory – all built in similar styles. Sightseeing options include Lanarch Castle, a stroll through the Botanic Gardens, a walk up Baldwin Street – the steepest in the world – and a ride on the vintage train through Taieri Gorge.

Timaru

Christchurch

Christchurch is an elegant city with a distinctive English feel. The Avon River meanders through its relaxed centre. Locally it is known as the ‘Garden City’ as it has numerous parks and gardens. And the Botanical Gardens are said to be the best in New Zealand, its flowerbeds providing a colourful display for months on end. From here grander scenic splendours beckon, including the Southern Alps, Banks Peninsula and Hanmer Springs.

Picton

Nelson

 

Nelson is New Zealand's second oldest city, settled in 1841. It has an irresistible blend of lifestyle and stunning landscapes at the top northwest corner of the South Island. From the northern edge of the Southern Alps across the fertile plains and out to a great sweep of beaches, Nelson is beautifully laid out under a generous sun that delivers New Zealand’s highest sunshine hours

Wellington

New Zealand's capital city features brightly painted wooden houses and a red cable car that takes you up to a fine view of the harbor. A must-see is the engaging Te Papa Tongarewa National Museum and Art Gallery, and keep your eyes peeled for the Beehive government offices—the name, of course, is a reference to the architecture.

Tauranga

Rotorua (some miles inland from the port of Tauranga) is the center of New Zealand's thermal area on the North Island. Spectacular phenomena such as geysers, boiling mud, hot pools, hot springs, and spouts of gushing steam can be seen. Lake Rotorua's waters are icy, yet the sandy shores are too warm for bare feet to walk upon. Rotorua is also the center of Maori life and culture, with a model village, displays of carving, and concerts of Maori music and singing. Tauranga, meaning "shelter" (named by Capt. Cook the Bay of Plenty), with its population of 48,000, is now a modern thriving city supported by the export of lumber and farming. This popular holiday resort is a paradise for deep-sea fishermen, and close to the golden sands of Ohope Beach for surfing and swimming.

Auckland

Virtually surrounded by water, Auckland is known as ‘The City of Sails’ with good reason. Opt to see the city from above with a visit to its Sky Tower, complete with a revolving restaurant! Sail on Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour for a taste of its yachting culture. Or head for the natural beauty of Rotorua. A different world completely, here you will find boiling mud pools, spouting geysers and hot springs. A highlight of New Zealand not to be missed!

Ship info

Europa

Enjoy the highest standards in terms of service and catering during a very exclusive cruise experience that has received a number of awards. A voyage aboard the EUROPA, the flagship of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises, awaits you – the most beautiful way of discovering faraway destinations.

Experience a ship that sets standards on an international scale – for no less than the fourteenth consecutive time, the EUROPA is the only cruise ship worldwide to have been awarded the coveted distinction “5 stars plus” by the Berlitz Cruise Guide 2014. Never before has there been so much space per passenger nor so much privacy to feel comfortable and at ease.

Aboard MS EUROPA, the at the most 408 guests are exclusively awaited by suites in a sophisticated ambiance and with generous space at the disposal of each guest. Suites have separate living and sleeping areas, walk-in wardrobes, and almost all of them have a private veranda. One small detail: every passenger on board is given his/her own e-mail address. The limited number of passengers and the superior ratio of crew members to guests with a German- and English-speaking hotel crew ensure that you feel comfortable on board in every respect from the very first minute. This applies both at sea and ashore. Because independently of where you are travelling with the EUROPA, you can be assured of first-class competence at all times – the captain, the crew and experts on board as well as tourism, tour guide and shore activity experts respectively provide the greatest possible degree of individuality with regards to service and cruise programmes.


Besides the perfect service, a genuine culinary highlight also awaits you on a cruise with the EUROPA. Our master chefs will treat you to mouth-watering adventures, new passions for the palate and surprising interpretations of classics. In particular, you may look forward to the “Restaurant Dieter Müller“ of the renowned Michelin starred chef.

International show stars appear on the stage of the Europa Lounge, our concert hall and ballroom. Various bars and lounges, the library with Internet access and an auditorium for talks and seminars guarantee relaxation in sophisticated surroundings.

Time out for body and soul: Our golf area, the OCEAN SPA, the fitness room, our pool with Magrodome as well as the outstanding cultural and entertainment programme offer plenty of diversity and ensure your well-being. In addition, the exclusive boutique and Wempe, the jeweller's, on the Promenade invite you to take an extended shopping trip.
