    Puerto Vallarta, 7.00 hrs – 17.00 hrs

    Puerto Vallarta/Mexico
    Liz Taylor fell in love with this city in the 1960s, making it world-famous. You, too, can succumb to the charm of the historic colonial city* on a walk through its narrow cobblestone streets. On a visit to an art gallery, you can find out about modern Latin American art at first hand. Discover the natural wonders of Mexico* on a trip through the countryside to San Sebastian. Amongst the copper vats and oak barrels of a tequila distillery, you can follow the traditional process for producing Mexico’s national drink from blue agave hearts.

    Taiohae, 8.00 hrs – 20.00 hrs

    Taiohae/Nuku Hiva/Marquesas Islands/French Polynesia
    “Grassy cliffs, several hundred feet high with countless little waterfalls pouring over them” – this is how Melville described the islands in 1846 and they have not changed to this day. An all-terrain vehicle will take you past hibiscus flowers and through thick coconut forests to Taipivai Valley*. Elaborate wooden and stone sculptures can be found in the jungle and in the village, reflecting the traditions and beliefs of the people of the Marquesas.

    Sunday, 19.08.2018

    Just as the painter Paul Gauguin had done before him, the Belgian singer Jacques Brel also fell for the South Sea charms of the island. Both spent the end of their days here. If you visit the artists’ graves in the wildly romantic cemetery, you will be rewarded with a fantastic view over the bay.  

    Hapatoni/Tahuata/Marquesas Islands/French Polynesia

    The smallest island in the Marquesas is home to only about 650 people, who will give you a warm welcome to their village life. Spend a relaxing day experiencing their way of life and allow yourself to be infected by their joyfulness.

    Relaxation at sea

    Sunday, 19.08.2018

    Rangiroa, 8.00 hrs – 18.00 hrs

    Rangiroa/Tuamotu Islands/French Polynesia
    Under the brilliant blue skies on a small coral island, a “vineyard” prospers – this unique natural wonder is made possible by the chalky soils made from dead coral. As well as fruity red and white wines, the atoll has plenty of other delicacies to offer. For this is the home of the shimmering black pearls*, whose secrets will be revealed on a visit to a pearl farm. The underwater world is also breathtakingly beautiful – go on a snorkel safari to the “aquarium” of the lagoon* or discover the coral gardens without getting wet by glass-bottomed boat*. With luck, you will be able to see parrot fish, moray eels and even white-tip sharks.

    Sunday, 19.08.2018

    Raiatéa, 12.00 hrs – 19.00 hrs

    Uturoa/Raiatéa/Society Islands/French Polynesia
    All routes begin here – this is at least true for supplies to the South Seas. This trading centre is still a sleepy little place, which is easy to explore on foot. The little Mont Orotaio watches over the town. Paths will take you through thick shrubs to the striking plateau, where you will be rewarded with a magnificent panoramic view over the hilly island and Tupua Bay.

    Sunday, 19.08.2018

    Moorea, 7.00 hrs – 17.00 hrs
    Papeete/Tahiti/Society Islands/French Polynesia, Arrival 19.00 hrs

    Moorea/Society Islands/French Polynesia
    Green volcanic hills rise above deep-blue bays – you are sure to have a splendid time on one of the most beautiful islands in the South Pacific. James Cook was entranced by Tahiti’s little sister, with its colourful flora and fauna. Take the time to enjoy the fabulous view over the coastline on a picnic* on the white sandy beach. With luck, you will see the majestic stingrays circling around the crystal-clear waters of the lagoon. Take a closer look at the fascinating underwater world on a sailing trip by catamaran*, where your captain will take you to the best snorkelling sites to visit the coral garden. To get the best overview of this heart-shaped island in all its glory, take a jeep tour through the tropical island interior to the Belvedere viewpoint*. The view over the surrounding valleys and the shimmering turquoise waters of Cook’s Bay and Opunohu Bay is unforgettable.

    Papeete/Tahiti/Society Islands/French Polynesia
    The EUROPA arrives in Tahiti, the Island of Love, where you will enjoy your last evening under the Southern Cross – maybe you will decide to stay a while and prolong your holiday in the South Seas with a private travel arrangement*.

If you wish, the EUROPA executive chefs can serve you meals in line with the guidelines of the VIVA Mayr kitchen on this cruise.


    Symposium at Sea: How does the market feel?

    Share prices, rating agencies, currencies – they all fluctuate based

    on their assessments of the economic situation and are often sensitive

    to the smallest rumours, press releases or political decisions. Experts

    in economics and science explain how psychology helps us to understand

    the market and its reactions to the world in interesting presentations

    and exciting rounds of discussions.

    Speakers include Professor Manfred

    Lahnstein (former Federal Minister of Finance) and Professor Erich H.

    Witte (University of Hamburg).
