Ocean Sun Festival – the classical music festival at sea
Since 2007, the EUROPA has hosted an annual classical music festival which combines some of the best international musicians as part of the Ocean Sun Festival on the World’s Most Beautiful Yacht. Famous opera singers, virtuoso musicians and well-known conductors create a unique composition of music and the sea, and give you the unparalleled pleasure of experiencing world-class stars up close and personal in the intimate surroundings of our ship. And that is not all: the artists also transform a number of hand-picked venues on shore into concert halls with their masterful performances.
On this family cruise, your loved ones will have their very own on-shore programme. Experienced supervisors ensure that special kids’ and teens’ excursions provide an exciting way to explore new places for all junior cruise passengers aged 4 and up. Naturally, we also offer family excursions* tailored to let you and your children explore together. Back on board, the children and their supervisors complete their eventful day by eating together in the Lido Café. If required, a babysitter* can look after your little ones afterwards. To allow you to sleep in peace, we also offer a lie-in service on days at sea: nannies will pick up your children at 8.00 hrs and take them for breakfast. And on days with shore excursions, adjusted supervision times allow you to take part in excursions* without your children.
Details of kids’, teens’ and family excursions can be found in the itinerary under the respective ports.
* Subject to a charge.
