I believe that the contemporary luxury cruise ship EUROPA 2, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises' fully bilingual ship, is a perfect match for Belgian and Dutch guests. Casual luxury, an exceptional high culinary standard, and the greatest space per passenger, are just three unique selling points for this incredible and award-winning ship.”

Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ EUROPA 2
The EUROPA 2 is a modern and casual luxury ship, which does away with cruise traditions such as the captain's dinner, and for the second time has received the highest distinction of a *5-stars-plus ranking from the 2015 “Berlitz Cruise Guide”. With up to 500 guests, the EUROPA 2 provides the greatest space per passenger on a cruise ship anywhere in the world. The ship features exclusively suites with verandas and a minimum area of 35 m2 (376 ft2).
