    Daniel Karelly, aka Affe Maria, is an Austrian musician and producer. After graduating from the Drummers Institute Duesseldorf as the best student in 20 years and discontinuing a study programme in jazz and pop drums at the ArtEZ Institute of the Arts in Arnhem/Netherlands, he returned to Hamburg in 2011 to work on the first album with his band Rakede.

    Xavier de Maistre belongs to an elite category of soloists who are redefining what is possible with their instrument. Born in Toulon he began studying harp aged nine. He studied in Paris and in 1998 he was awarded first prize at the International Harp Competition in Bloomington, Indiana, immediately becoming the first French musician to join the ranks of the prestigious Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. Aside from commissions from composers such as Kaija Saariaho, he performs works like Smetana’s “Ma Vlast" with breathtaking precision, presenting masterful arrangements of works that are usually played by an entire orchestra. The interpretation of these works, that few harpists before him have even considered playing, has contributed to his reputation as one of the most creative and extraordinary musicians of his generation. Xavier de Maistre has appeared with major orchestras under the direction of such eminent conductors as Bertrand de Billy, Lionel Bringuier, Daniele Gatti, Kristjan Järvi, Philippe Jordan, Riccardo Muti, Andrés Orozco-Estrada and André Previn. He performs at many leading international festivals, including Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, Salzburg Festival, Budapest Spring Festival and Mostly Mozart in New York. He collaborates with such chamber music partners as Diana Damrau, Magali Mosnier, Daniel Müller-Schott, Baiba Skride and Arabella Steinbacher. Since 2001 Xavier de Maistre has taught at the Hamburg Academy of Music. He also gives regular masterclasses at New York’s Juilliard School of Music, Tokyo’s Toho University and London’s Trinity College of Music.

    Experience the most beautiful golf courses with Hapag-Lloyd Cruises

    On our exclusive Golf & Cruise voyages we have reserved the best greens for you in advance and put together attractive basic packages.

    Basic package: 4 courses
    € 1,890 per person

    Golf - fairways in the Caribbean

    Tue 27.11 St. John’s – Cedar Valley Golf Club
    The course features diverse landscapes and some significant height differences of up to 100 m (328 ft). The lack of water on the island means that the terrain can be very hard in places, and the small club house also gives a somewhat rustic impression. Nevertheless, this course offers connoisseurs an extremely interesting golfing experience.

    Mi 28.11. Marigot Bay / St. Lucia – Sandals St. Lucia Golfclub

    Thu 30.11 Bridgetown – Sandy Lane Country Club
    A course that you would expect from the Caribbean. A true gift! Even the great Tiger Woods played a round here after spending his wedding night at the hotel next door. The resident caddies make these 18 holes a real experience: the Rastafarians, who are often almost too relaxed, are worthy successors to Bob Marley, both in their appearance and their habitus.

    Mon 04.12 Cartagena – TPC Cartagena at Karibana golf club
    This resort course presents players with wide, open fairways and tricky greens. Jack Nicklaus has created a wonderful combination of challenging golf and enjoyable games directly on the Pacific. The second nine holes are a particular test of a player’s concentration. Remember to pack your camera along with your clubs and balls.
