Manta

A commercial centre – the second largest port after Guayaquil – and a thriving holiday centre, Manta and its people are drawn to the shore and its curving Malecón, the promenade that lines the bay. All of life is here – restaurants, bars and their music spill out, with revellers splitting their time between these and favourite beaches like El Murciélago. Don’t miss the chance to learn about the many talents of the locals and their ancestors – not least of which is the Panama hat that originated in nearby Montecristi.

This is our gateway to the treasures of northern Peru. Named after the Spanish city where conquistador Francisco Pizarro was born, Trujillo's stately mansions and decorated balconies date back as far as 1534. This is the Moche Valley, home to the extraordinary adobe citadels built a thousand years earlier by the Chimus and Mochicas. Most remarkable of all is Chan-Chan. Capital of the Kingdom of the Great Chimu and the largest city in South America to be built of mud, it once covered an area of over 12 square miles.

Valparaiso

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. Stroll its cobbled streets and quiet plazas, or head to Muelle Prat, a lively market. 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. Linger on leafy squares, visit the Palacio de la Moneda, see the pre-Colombian art museum and soak up the colorful street life of lively markets or the more sophisticated districts of Providencia and Las Condes.

Ship info

Europa 2

Personal service, a high gastronomic standard, individual travel programmes and excellent interiors: you will experience this comfort on the newcomer to the Hapag-Lloyd Cruises fleet in a modern and casual atmosphere. Upon completion of her construction and as our second flagship, the EUROPA 2 will be heading for the most attractive destinations in the world as from May 2013.

The route concept concentrates on four regions: Western Mediterranean, Eastern Mediterranean, Arabian Peninsula and Asia. In fulfilment of the wishes of our guests these will be shorter, mostly seven-day voyages. Many routes will be offered on different dates and can be combined flexibly to form longer, fantastic stays on board. 

The design concept follows current trends and is a successful mixture of casual and stylish ambience with state-of-the-art technology. Hardly any other ship offers more space per guest than the EUROPA 2 - after all, well-being is also measured in square metres. For this reason it goes without saying that all the suites on board the EUROPA 2 have a spacious veranda. Life on board sets its own standards: more lifestyle and less cruise rituals contribute towards a more informal atmosphere. The low number of passengers of at the most 516 guests and the superior crew/guest ratio ensure that exclusiveness and relaxation are guaranteed from the very first moment onwards.

Besides culinary diversity and luxurious surroundings, the focus of the EUROPA 2 is on wellness, fitness and a multifaceted entertainment programme. All these features can be enjoyed in a relaxed atmosphere and, of course, at the unique high standard that you expect of a ship that proudly bears the name EUROPA. 

Experience the new way of enjoying luxury in a relaxed ambience. We look forward to greeting you on board MS EUROPA 2!
