How little seafarers discover the world

Small seafarers and big ones alike should feel right at home on board our ships from the very first moment of the cruise. As soon as they step foot on board, Cap’n Knopf will be waiting to take the little ones by the paw and show them safely around the ship.

The Knopf Club for the little ones

On the EUROPA 2, we have created the Knopf Club* to give two- and three-year olds their own space to play. Professionally trained carers take great care of each and every tiny tot, and there is plenty for them to discover here. Games in the ball pit, setting out to explore the world on the sensory wall or listening to great stories in the Steiff cuddle lounge – every day is packed with possibilities. And when little seafarers can hardly keep their eyes open after all this activity, they can take a nap in a cot in the security of the Knopf Club* both during the day and during the evening sleeping supervision, so that they will wake up refreshed and looking forward to new experiences at sea.

  • Guaranteed childcare for two to three year olds in the EUROPA 2 Knopf Club
  • Age specific offers like Bälle-Paradies and Steiff Kuschellounge
  • Knopf Club opening times: 9.00 to 17.00 hrs and supervision for going to sleep 18.30 to 22.00 hrs
  • Participation is limited to twelve infants.

The free Baby Welcome Package

For the very youngest, we offer our free baby welcome package. From a changing mat to baby food and high-quality toiletries, it contains everything a child up to three years old could need. As a result, parents save space in their luggage – and can look forward to their cruise with even greater pleasure.
