Europa 2 offers 17 maiden ports of call and free internet in 2018-19

The Europa 2 programme for 2018-19 features a wide range of routes and maiden calls, with highlights including early 2018 in South Africa, a premiere cruise to Spitsbergen in summer, the Baltic Sea in August and Christmas Eve celebrated around the islands of Thailand.

The season will see 17 new ports added to the programme including Alghero/Sardinia and Sao Vicente/Cape Verde. Guests can look forward to varied routes featuring a mixture of small coastal towns and tourist highlights.

The Yacht Club on board Europa 2

In summer, the ship will sail from Hamburg to Iceland and Norway before returning 19 days later to the Hanseatic city – Germany’s second-largest city. An 78-day combination cruise straight through Oceania from late January to early April 2019 promises plenty of time to recover from the winter cold. Guests can spend Christmas and New Year on a cruise through Asia.

Special moments will feature heavily on the itinerary alongside extraordinary destinations. The travel-format cruises on the Europa 2 will focus on themes that reflect the interests of their target groups, such as fashion, art, sport and music. Guests will have multiple formats to choose from in the new season.

Following the successful premiere in 2016, the ship will once again transform into a fashion hotspot as it hosts the glamorous event evening Fashion2Night on 17 August, 2018, as part of the prelude to a three-day cruise.

The Pool Deck will become the catwalk for an exclusive show featuring a number of prominent guests who will be on board for the evening.

As a result of increased capacity of the ship’s satellite systems, from 2018 all passengers will receive one hour of free Internet use per day. Guests staying in Owner and Grand Penthouse Suites will continue to enjoy free Internet at all times.
