YOUR MOST BEAUTIFUL YACHT IN THE WORLD

Travelling to the world's most beautiful destinations on board the EUROPA will be an experience in itself: whether you're shaking the captain's hand or going to a dazzling gala evening, enjoy the traditional luxury of a classic cruise in the company of a small group of no more than 400 guests. You can look forward to the highest service and gastronomy standards, which have already been awarded the rating of 5-stars-plus for the seventeenth time in a row by the Berlitz Cruise Guide. You can always rely on our German-speaking crew who, with their discreet attentiveness and eye for detail, will be happy to fulfil your individual wishes.

During the first "pleasure cruise", the illustrious company of German, British and American guests enjoyed excellent service on board: butlers, balls and exquisite cuisine. A series of journalists plus the illustrator of travel reports, Christian Wilhelm Allers, accompanied the cruise and filled the pages of the first on-board newspaper. In it, an article stated that, as the cruise progressed, the travellers from Hamburg had been "united in three things": "They are at pains to acquire the same travel hats, to relish each and every meal to the full - and to eat caviar rolls as if they were going out of fashion."
