Ports

Papeete

A look beyond its bustling waterfront will reveal the island paradise French artist Paul Gauguin came to explore and embrace. The island’s lush interior is a canvas of deep green valleys, 7,000 feet-high peaks and cascading waterfalls. On the south shore lies the Gauguin Museum at Mataiea while at Tautira on the north coast, other famous names like Captain Cook and Robert Louis Stevenson came to call. Back in Papeete, visit the restored ancient temple of Arahurahu Marae or shop for cultured black pearls.

Sharp ridges cloaked in lush vegetation rise from the interior. And the friendly Polynesians are legendary—warm, charming and generous. Rarotonga's largest village is Avarua. In addition to it's scenery, the island is famed for its great snorkeling and diving sites, excellent sport fishing, and a relaxed and easygoing lifestyle.

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.
