    The highlights of this cruise

    From Bali, the EUROPA will head for another idyllic Indonesian island: PADAR ISLAND, the third-largest in Komodo National Park, does not have any inhabitants. But it does have stunning trekking paths, which provide fabulous views across the surreal volcanic landscape with its countless bays. From here, as you head for the Australian continent, you can make the most of the EUROPA’s comprehensive sport and spa facilities for two full days. Combine relaxed moments on the Sun Deck doing exactly as you choose with invigorating courses from our Body & Soul programme. 

    DARWIN, described as the “gateway to Asia” because of its geographical location, is your doorway to the first highlight of Australia. Go on a boat trip on the Adelaide River* and observe salt-water crocodiles from a safe distance, or get acquainted with Aboriginal culture. The life and culture of Australia’s indigenous people in Yirrkala is almost close enough to touch. Weather permitting, you’ll land by Zodiac at this small settlement, where Aboriginal people still live a very traditional way of life. Immediately behind the idyllic Thursday Island is the legendary GREAT BARRIER REEF, which covers 14 latitudes. Explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site up-close while snorkelling*. With a little luck, exotic fish will accompany you as you swim through the impressive coral worlds.

    The perfect starting point for this unforgettable experience is CAIRNS, where you will also spend the night. The next morning, make the most of your time and discover the unique flora and fauna of Australia’s largest rainforest area*. From Hamilton Island, take to the skies on a helicopter flight* above the Great Barrier Reef and Whitehaven Beach, which is considered the whitest beach in the world due to the high silica content of its sand. If you haven’t yet seen any kangaroos or koalas, you will probably fulfil this dream when you get to BRISBANE, at the latest. At the nearby wildlife reserve of Lone Pine*, you can experience these and other endemic animal species close up. But the capital city of Queensland also proves that Australia has more to offer than breathtaking nature – its cities also exude their own special charm. Brisbane, for example, is typically relaxed, despite its two million inhabitants. Relax in the cafes of trendy Fortitude Valley, or go shopping at the Queen Street Mall.

    SYDNEY is another city where the laid-back atmosphere is ever-present. Whether you choose to stroll along Bondi Beach, go shopping in the harbour district The Rocks or try to take the perfect photo of the famous Sydney Opera House, two days full of new impressions await you in Australia’s largest city. After a relaxing day at sea, your cruise ends in Melbourne.

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