New episode now online: Accommodation on board

  • Fourth episode now online showcasing the range of accommodation on board
  • April 2015 - March 2016 cruise brochure: New names for suite categories
  • Episode 4 now online at

As featured in EUROPA 2's current cruise brochure April 2015 - March 2016, two types of suite have been given new names and the inclusive services in these categories have been adapted accordingly. The 52 m2 (560 ft2) Spa Suites are now known as "Grand Ocean Suites". In this category, there is no longer the privilege of a personal butler, which means that the cruise price has been reduced accordingly. The Grand Suites on decks 8 and 10 have been renamed as "Penthouse Suites" to reflect their location on the upper decks. The cruise price for the Penthouse Suites on deck 10 has been increased slightly to reflect this. This new episode (3:44 mins) focuses on "Accommodation on board" and showcases how appealing the choice of on-board accommodation is for the guests. Click here to see the latest film online:

"The EUROPA 2 provides a generous amount of space throughout the ship; and our design concept provides all suites exclusively with their own veranda, providing unobstructed ocean views", explains Julian Pfitzner, Director Product Management EUROPA 2.

The highest living standards from the first category

The EUROPA 2 provides the highest living standards from the very first suite category upwards. All 141 Veranda Suites measure 35m² (376 ft²), including the veranda, an optically-separated living area with recamier, a walk-in wardrobe, a bath tub and shower also form part of the standard equipment. The 59 Ocean Suites on board are the same size and they also have a rain shower and whirlpool tub with an ocean view.

All 251 suites have the most up-to-date equipment in line with the lifestyle-focused character of the EUROPA 2: Internet access via Wi-Fi along with Tablet PC, cordless telephones and Nespresso coffee machines are all standard items. A 24-hour suite service, with butler service in the higher categories of suites (from Penthouse Suite upwards), ensures the highest service quality. Contemporary art and upholstered furniture from the COR company are among the extras, which emphasise the high standards. Soft drinks are available free of charge in the mini bar in all suites; as well as some additional drinks such as quality spirits in higher categories of suite.

Owner Suite with whirlpool and steam sauna

The two Owner Suites on Deck 10 provide the greatest amount of personal space. Separate living and sleeping areas, a large bath with an additional toilet for guests and a walk-in wardrobe stretch over 114 m² (1,227 ft²), including a 15 m² (161 ft²) veranda. Special features include: a private whirlpool with ocean view, a shower with steam sauna and a day bed in the bath. The butler service ensures the best care and support. Both the 88 m² (948 ft²) Grand Penthouse Suites are fitted out to an equally high standard and they have a ten square metre veranda as well.
