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.

Majestic mountains sculpted by ancient volcanoes, a shimmering lagoon and a barrier reef dotted with tiny motu or islets welcome visitors to perhaps the most stunning island in the South Pacific, and generations of travelers — including novelist James Michener — regarded Bora Bora as an earthly paradise. Approximately, a mere 4,600 people live a seemingly idyllic lifestyle in the main villages of Vaitape, Anau and Faanui.

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 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!
