Europa 2

The largest amount of space per passenger on any cruise ship

Of appeal to discerning, cosmopolitan guests – couples, families and solo travellers alike – EUROPA 2 has been built combining the very best of contemporary, modern design concepts, while providing every amenity expected of a truly luxurious cruise experience.

No detail has been spared in the creation of a modern and informal interpretation of luxury cruising – choice and individuality of lifestyle being paramount.

With her 11 decks and 251 suites accommodating a maximum of 516 passengers, she offers the largest amount of space per passenger on a cruise ship, with all-veranda suite accommodation of at least 28 square metres. Spa, penthouse and family suites complete the accommodation range.

The EUROPA 2 exclusively offers Veranda Suites with balconies each measuring at least 75sq ft facing the sea. In addition, all suites will have a free of charge mini bar, Internet access via Wi-Fi (at an extra charge) and a tablet PC.

The 251 suites in seven different categories, measure in size from 301 to 1,066sq ft, and offer their own whirlpools with ocean view in the highest categories. In addition, 16 Spa Suites have whirlpool tubs and rain showers with steam saunas, providing guests with a private oasis of wellbeing on board.

There are seven family style suites, where parents and children can live in two separate areas, connected by a door and the shared balcony.

The restaurant concept on board the EUROPA 2 is synonymous with diversity and flexibility – flexible mealtimes, no assigned seating, and plenty of tables for two. There are eight restaurants to choose from,  among them three speciality restaurants with Italian, French and Asian cuisine, as well as a Sushi Bar. Six bars can also be found on-board.

The entertainment programme eflects the modern concept of the EUROPA 2. The theatre has modern stage technology and a large LED wall extending across two stories – a novelty on a relatively small ship. For the first time for Hapag-Lloyd Cruises, the entertainment programme features spectacular productions, performances and light shows. The shows do not rely on language.

Guests will also find diversity and plenty of space in the wellness area, which boasts 10,764sq ft. Treatments ranging from massages, to facials, to Thalasso therapy is offered in the eight treatment rooms at the Ocean Spa. The extensive sauna landscape grants every guest more space to relax than any other ship of this class.

Young cruise passengers are sure to enjoy themselves in the Kids and Teens Club, compiled by qualified child care specialists. Childcare is available for toddlers two and older on the EUROPA 2 (subject to charge). There is a special area for the infants called the “Knopf Club,” equipped with cots, changing tables and a lounge furnished with cuddly toys, by the renowned manufacturer Steiff. Children aged 4-10 years old play in the adjacent Kids Club, and children 11-15 years old get together in the Teens Club, where table football, video game consoles, or the disco will await them.
