    show complete itinerary

    As the EUROPA leaves the legendary metropolis of SINGAPORE in the evening, the countless glimmering city lights will already get you in the mood for your festive cruise. And after a day of peace and relaxation on board the World’s Most Beautiful Yacht, the idyllic coastlines of KO SAMUI await you. Unspoilt beaches, a fairy-tale forest of palm trees and wooden jetties that extend into the turquoise-coloured water – KO KOOD is also full of the exotic flair of Thailand and is the perfect place to unwind.

    A white Christmas ... in South East Asia? It’s possible – thanks to the fine white beaches of PHU QUOC. Spend Christmas Eve between thatched beach huts and the lush green leaves of coconut palms, and relax on one of the fine sandy beaches on Vietnam’s largest island. In HO CHI MINH CITY you’re also unlikely to miss home much – that's because everyday life in this bustling city on the Saigon River is so fascinating. Stroll through areas full of contrasts, where colourful market stalls, Buddhist temples and imposing colonial buildings coexist, and use the opportunity to learn about Vietnam’s varied cuisine* in an authentic setting. After your overnight stay in the harbour, start the day with t’ai chi* in the park – and look forward to more exciting adventures in the land of smiles.

    Plenty of excitement already awaits you in the Da Nang region. Immerse yourself in Vietnamese culture in this lively coastal city, or discover the imperial city of HUE*. Set against a picturesque, hilly landscape, it boasts an impressive monument complex that is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A visit to HOI AN* is also a unique experience. Vietnam experts consider it the country’s most beautiful city. You’ll see why by sunset at the latest, when the city’s streets are illuminated by the glow of thousands of colourful silk lanterns. It’s a sight that puts any firework display firmly in the shade.

    Talking of celebrations, you’ll see in the new year on board, raising a glass and dancing the night away at a spectacular New Year’s Eve party. On New Year’s Day, don’t be surprised when the first rays of the rising sun reveal the bizarre limestone islands of HALONG BAY. Sunbathing on the glorious beach at Sanya*: this is another very relaxing way to start the new year – before it is time for the final chapter of your cruise in HONG KONG. This former British colony has well over seven million inhabitants today – and it’s full of even more fantastic experiences for you to enjoy. You will have a day and a night to go shopping and sightseeing and let this dazzling megacity with its endless attractions work its magic on you.

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