    The highlights of this cruise

    What could be a more stylish way to kick off the EUROPA’s 20th birthday cruise than with a special start in HAMBURG? The elegant metropolis on the Elbe will become the perfect backdrop for a wonderful surprise – the first of many reasons to celebrate. As the ship navigates the Elbe the next afternoon, further atmospheric impressions are guaranteed.
    Extra time for you to explore is one of the gifts that the EUROPA will give you thanks to its long lay times – in ANTWERP, for example. In the past, Rubens’ city became one of Europe’s richest commercial hubs thanks to the diamond trade. Today, Antwerp is a jewel itself, revealing a new facet every time you look at it. On a city walking tour, the splendid art nouveau and baroque architecture will catch your eye. The Rubens Museum* will impress you with its masterpieces by the great painter, and the shops’ windows will tempt you inside thanks to globally renowned Belgian design – and Belgian chocolate creations, which are no less famous. Antwerp is also worth experiencing for its cosmopolitan flair – after all, its residents hail from around 160 nations. You can take it all in of an evening, in one of the typical brown-wood-panelled bars. The charmingly unspoilt HONFLEUR will further enrich your stay in western Europe. Stroll through its picturesque streets, or explore the Pay d’Auge*, the home of cider and Calvados.

    PORTO is also famous for a very special beverage. Walking through the wonderful old town on the slopes of the Douro is like going on a journey through the history of architecture, thanks to the romantic, baroque, renaissance and art nouveau masterpieces that you will pass along the way. Naturally, the chance to sample a glass of port is not to be missed: try it in a porto tónico: a refreshingly tart drink that’s best enjoyed during a break between adventures. Two long days in LISBON will bring you even closer to the Portuguese soul – and the latest addition to the Hapag-Lloyd Cruises fleet. As part of its maiden voyage, the HANSEATIC INSPIRATION will be in the harbour at the same time as the EUROPA, and you are invited on board for an exclusive visit. Portugal’s capital city will also be the setting for further festivities when we invite you to a concert. Let us surprise you once again!

    You will also enjoy the very best of the Spanish coast during the EUROPA’s birthday cruise, from the imposing Alhambra* to vibrant VALENCIA. From its wide beaches to the narrow streets of its old town, and its art nouveau splendour to the futuristic architecture of the City of Arts and Sciences, this Spanish metropolis is incredibly diverse. Its lively charm and delightful cafes even inspired the great Hemingway, who immortalised his favourite places such as the legendary paella restaurant La Pepica in his works. You are also guaranteed lasting memories – when we host a birthday gala for you in the evening. Celebrate with us on this extraordinary cruise, which will be rounded off by an elegant evening in Monte Carlo.

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