    The highlights of this cruise

    Turquoise water, white beaches shaded by palm trees and untouched underwater worlds – France’s overseas territory of French Polynesia is made up of the picturesque settings of around 120 enchanting islands. One of the most alluring islands is TAHITI – the EUROPA will be waiting at Papeete, its central settlement, to take you on a dream cruise through the South Seas. The heart-shaped island of MOOREA lies within eyeshot of its “big sister”. The lush, overgrown volcanic peaks reveal their unparalleled beauty best when viewed from a catamaran*. The morning begins with a true legend of the South Seas: Mai Te Pora means “created by the gods” and you will indeed find paradise on earth on the white powder beaches of BORA BORA or snorkelling* in the crystal-clear lagoon. Following a relaxing day at sea, the Cook Islands will appear on the endless horizon like small emeralds.

    The rainforests on RAROTONGA have remained almost untouched to this day. Pa*, a native of the island, will reveal its secrets to you on a hike*. The blue lagoon* of AITUTAKI will certainly take your breath away the following day. Encircled by a coral garden, dive into the warm water or daydream on the soft sand. The beautiful islands of the SOUTH SEAS have always fired the imagination of artists. The author Robert Louis Stevenson found his own personal treasure island on Samoa. You will experience your own holiday fairy tale when we invite you to a special event in Fagamalo on Savai’i: take the Zodiacs to the shore where we will have prepared a barbecue on the beach.

    When you think of FIJI, you think of remote beaches, the gentle rustling of palm trees and evergreen rainforests in which beautiful waterfalls gush into lakes. Welcome to Taveuni, where all of these dreams are a reality. Far from modern civilisation, the scenery and fascinating customs of the islands have managed to remain intact. Besides the traditional kava ceremony* on Viti Levu, you should take the opportunity to marvel at the impressive rituals of the fire-walkers*. Spend the following morning snorkelling, sunbathing or simply daydreaming on Leleuvia, as this tiny island in the azure ocean seems to have been created for no other purpose. The BAY OF ISLANDS off the northern coast of New Zealand are characterised by around 140 islands with dense vegetation and golden bays. Its breathtaking beauty notwithstanding, the surrounding area is also interesting from a historical perspective: the first treaty between the British government and the Maori chiefs was signed in Waitangi in 1840. Round off your cruise the following morning in Auckland.

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