Cruise Ships


Recognised as the finest cruise ship in the world

A voyage on the Europa is a wonderful way of discovering faraway destinations.

Experience a ship that sets standards on an international scale – for no less than the 13th 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 2013.

Europa sets standards of cruising that few others, if any, can match

On MS Europa, 408 guests are exclusively awaited by suites in a sophisticated ambiance and with generous space at the disposal of each guest. 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. Master chefs 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.

Time out for body and soul: the golf area, the Ocean Spa, the fitness room, the pool with Magrodome as well as the outstanding cultural and entertainment programme offer plenty of diversity and ensure your well-being.
