Ports

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Sydney - Australia

Sydney is Australia's largest city, which is the number one tourist destination in the country. It offers a multitude of sights such as the famous Opera House and distinctive Harbour Bridge of course. You can travel back in time with a visit to Sydney’s oldest centre – The Rocks. Take a city tour to take in Sydney Tower, Darling Harbour and Chinatown. Bask on Bondi Beach for a dose of sun, sea and sand. Or travel a little further afield for a glimpse of the Aussie wildlife and views of the Blue Mountains.

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!
