    The highlights of this cruise

    Legends of seafaring
    Since it was opened almost 150 years ago, the Suez Canal has captured the imagination of sailors and cruise passengers from all over the world. From your VIP vantage point on board the EUROPA, watch as you pass through this legendary waterway that connects the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea. Live commentary by our lecturer will make it an event to remember.
    Dubai by night
    Make sure you use your overnight stay to see Dubai at night. The Rooftop Terrace & Sports Lounge* in the One&Only Royal Mirage is a real hidden gem. It offers the best views of the beach and skyline and serves oriental meze by candlelight, creating a wonderful atmosphere.
    * These tips are individual activities which are not organised by Hapag-Lloyd Cruises. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises makes no guarantee in connection with opening hours. Our travel concierge will be happy to help (fees apply).

    As soon as the days shorten at home, head for CRETE and its mild temperatures. The tranquillity that lies over Greece’s largest island in the autumn months is perfect for taking walks* along the bays or an excursion to Knossos*. Daytime passage through the SUEZ CANAL is a particularly fascinating prospect for any seafarer. Enjoy exciting moments on deck as our regional lecturer provides live commentary. Spend a relaxed week at sea as the EUROPA cruises along the coastline of the Red Sea. Use the time to indulge in everything we have to offer. The skyscrapers of DUBAI will signal the end of your relaxed break - but how about one final dinner in the dunes*?

    * The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to change.
