    The highlights of this cruise

    Directly adjacent to sprawling parks and a paradisiacal bay, MELBOURNE provides a wonderful first impression of Australia’s charming cities, be it in the creative Fitzroy Gardens or in the elegant suburb South Yarra. SYDNEY, too, has mastered the art of “easy living”. The EUROPA will spend two days in the country’s largest metropolis where the beaches are no less legendary than the opera house. Walk through the central business district past historical buildings and drop into one of the many cafes or parks for a little break. Australia’s incomparable natural legacy lies off its northern coast: set off from Hamilton Island to gaze in awe at the GREAT BARRIER REEF and Whitehaven Beach in all of their splendour from the air*. If you would rather go snorkelling* to see the colourful coral fish, take the boat* from CAIRNS to the edge of the reef. Head inland for equally impressive natural beauty: the cable car to Kuranda* will take you into the Wet Tropics of Queensland, the largest tropical forest reserve in Australia.

    With exotic plants, colourful birds of paradise, remote islands and secret rituals, the islands of PAPUA NEW GUINEA promise to be a wonderful expeditionary experience: the white sandy beaches of the Deboyne Islands and the uninhabited Bramble Haven are rarely visited by people and there are no roads to be found in the harbour town of Alotau. Get to know the laid-back everyday lifestyle of the inhabitants around Milne Bay. Come face-to-face with one of the country’s many tribes in the Goroka Highlands*: fly* via MADANG to meet the Mudmen whose wild dances were once intended to frighten enemies. Certain places in the Philippines are baffling too. The inhabitants say that the CHOCOLATE HILLS* in Bohol are the tears of a love-struck giant. Scientists are unsure as to the true origins of the 1,200 equally sized hills, the grass of which turns brown in the dry season. The best thing is to see for yourself before turning your attention to the beaches of CALANGAMAN ISLAND and BORACAY.

    Following a day at sea, the EUROPA will arrive at HONG KONG in the afternoon. Enjoy the view of the city skyline at night and join us as we raise a glass to a cruise full of different experiences before you set off on your journey home the next morning.

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

    Once again this year, the on-board programme will be determined by the waves in waltz time as we say “Let the waltz begin.” Whilst the debutantes take to the floor for the magnificent Opera Ball at the Wiener Staatsoper in Vienna, the officers and crew members on board will start their dance thousands of nautical miles away. Here, in the midst of a sea of flowers and a venue decorated especially for the event, you can dance the night way in evening dress. At the EUROPA Opera Ball, you will also be treated to culinary delights to rival those served in Vienna.

    With the Body & Soul programme, the focus is on your health. Lectures and courses, which may vary according to the cruise and are provided in collaboration with well-known partners, will address topics such as movement and nutrition, tell you about relaxation techniques or focus on various aspects of beauty. Some well-deserved attention for your body.
