Ports

Buenos Aires

This sophisticated Argentine jewel is the most European of South American capitals. Boulevards here are broader even than those in Paris. Nightlife beats to the pulse of the tango and bossa nova.

Montevideo

Founded by the Spanish in 1720, the heart of Uruguay’s capital is home to some fine colonial architecture with beautiful 19th century houses and squares. Along the Rambla, the waterfront drive that stretches for 12 miles, you’ll discover sun-kissed beaches and sculpture-filled parks.

From here, you’ve the chance to take in the best views of the region’s waterfalls, rivers and lakes, as well as Mt. Osorno with its snowcapped peak. Other highlights include the emerald green waters of Lake Todos Los Santos, more commonly known as Lake Esmeralda and described by Theodore Roosevelt as the most beautiful lake he had ever seen.

Set around a magnificent harbor and against a backdrop of snow-covered mountains, Valparaiso is the capital of the Valparaiso Region, Chile’s principal port, and a delightful city to explore.

Just an hour inland is Santiago de Chile, founded in 1541 by the Conquistadors, and an impressive city of Spanish Colonial styles and old world, European architecture.

Santiago is the economic and cultural hub of the country, occupying a spectacular basin at the foot of the highest peaks of the Andes.

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.
