Cruise EUR1807

17.04.2018 - 30.04.2018

13 days (13 days cruise only)

    First you will visit Israel, with its rich Christian heritage, and then the Greek islands will beckon you to follow in the footsteps of the gods of antiquity. Experience the region’s lust for life and Mediterranean flair in ancient tavernas, on sun-drenched beaches and in narrow streets of whitewashed houses – all set against the backdrop of the endless blue ocean.


    Please note that your choosen cruise is conducted in German only. All printed matters are available in German. Nevertheless our crew is fluent in English.

    The highlights of this cruise

    Israel’s fine wines
    The history of Israeli wines goes back to biblical times, and these exquisite beverages are still a favourite with connoisseurs around the world today. Why not try them for yourself? Our travel concierge* will be happy to recommend the best vineyards – such as the Carmel Winery, which was founded with the support of Baron Edmond de Rothschild.
    The lightness of Tel Aviv
    Tel Aviv literally means “spring mound”. And it does seem that the city is always full of the joys of spring – infused with lightness and joie de vivre everywhere you go. Would you like to explore this popular, fun-loving metropolis at your own pace? Our travel concierge* will be happy to advise you.
    Under the sun of Mykonos
    Enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle with all your senses – the Nammos Beach Club* on Mykonos is one of the best places to do so. Treat yourself to a bite to eat in the restaurant, then relax by the sea on one of the sunloungers, designed in the style of a yacht. Add an ice-cold drink, and you’ve got the quintessential Mediterranean experience.
    *These tips are individual activities which are not organised by Hapag-Lloyd Cruises. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises makes no guarantee in connection with opening hours. Please make table reservations yourself. Our travel concierge will be happy to help (fees apply).

    Following the first overnight stay on board, set out from CYPRUS to see all of the different faces of the Promised Land. You will find a captivating melting pot of cultures in the cosmopolitan city of HAIFA. Besides synagogues, numerous churches and a small Muslim community, the city’s skyline is dominated by the green gardens of the Baha’i faith* – the steep hill is lined with 19 well-maintained garden terraces. Israel is linked inextricably to the life of Jesus Christ whose birth was announced by the Archangel Gabriel at the Sea of Galilee* over 2,000 years ago – nestled between the mountains, this lake remains a heavenly sight to this day with its deep-blue water. If you would like to follow the words of the New Testament, the life of Jesus will lead you from ASHDOD to Jerusalem* to the summit of the Mount of Olives and down to the Dome of the Rock. The Israelis say people go to Jerusalem to pray – but what about Tel Aviv*? That’s where you party.

    It is best to see how fun this modern coastal city is for yourself! As soon as the EUROPA reaches RHODES in the early hours of the evening, you will see the beckoning lights of the rustic tavernas behind the walls of the old town. And during the day, you will find everything you need for a perfect spring day in the cobbled streets and charming boutiques. CRETE, Greece’s most southern island, leaves almost no holiday wish unfulfilled: between Agios Nikolaos in the east and Chania in the west lie rugged mountain worlds, cypress forests and the legacy of the Minoans, who left their most beautiful legacy in Knossos*. White fishermen’s houses with blue shutters and an endless panoramic view of the turquoise sea and white sandy beaches – the photos of the Cyclades in picture books really do exist, and the island of MYKONOS is one of the best examples: its most famous postcard photo is of the five historical windmills known as Kato Mili. The colourful “Little Venice” is no less picturesque, with wonderful verandas hanging out over the water – the view is enthralling and should be enjoyed with a Greek mocha.

    VOLOS is situated on the mainland and is known as the “gateway to Mount Pelion”, although its green foothills reach as far as the city limits. It is said in the rustic mountain villages that the centaurs were created in the seemingly mythical woods, and the legend that the region was even used as a summer residence by the gods becomes believable when you walk* through olive groves and along riverbeds. The Meteora monastery complex* that awaits you inland also seems not to be of this world, and even the journey there is spectacular. To this day, the nuns and monks preserve their traditions in the seemingly surreal buildings that appear to levitate on top of the monoliths towering several hundred metres above the ground. To round off your cruise, the small island of SKIATHOS promises more moments of relaxation on a walk through its narrow alleyways before you set off from Athens on your journey home the following morning.

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