    The highlights of this cruise

    The 144 islands of the BAY OF ISLANDS are all crowded together. Their subtropical natural environment will ignite your pioneering spirit right at the beginning of your cruise. The extraordinary beauty and the lush green along the bay off New Zealand’s northern coast inspired the artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser: over the decades, his adopted home provided plenty of inspiration for his colourful works. Let your own imagination take flight – whether you go on a hike* to Haruru Falls or spend some hours relaxing, surrounded by the stunning landscape. Amidst the wide expanse of the South Pacific, the islands of NEW CALEDONIA await you, poignantly untouched. ILE DES PINS is nicknamed “the closest island to paradise”, and it is probably the most beautiful island of the French overseas territory. The sea shimmers deep blue, and the brilliant white beaches – lined with coconut palms – are among the most enchanting in the Pacific. FIJI will also make your South Sea dreams come true. After you land at the beach on Dravuni Island, you will travel right to the heart of this untouched natural idyll, where exotic flowers and thundering waterfalls form a backdrop for your explorations. Look forward to unforgettable moments of discovery when the EUROPA calls at KANTON for the first time and you take the Zodiacs and land at this atoll, which belongs to Kiribati. No more than around 30 people call this small, ring-shaped island home.

    Under the South Seas sun, cast your gaze on the sparkling lagoon and explore the colourful underwater world around the coral reefs – everyday life could not feel further away. With its mighty crater landscapes, tropical rainforests and fragrant orchids, HAWAII is a fascinating world of contrasts, and you will spend four days getting to know it in great depth and from thrilling perspectives. Take to the skies for a scenic flight* over the magnificent Volcanoes National Park*, where the Kilauea, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, has been sending forth streams of lava non-stop since 1983. Other ways to spend your time in the USA’s 50th state include relaxing at the world-famous Waikiki Beach, going on a hike* to uncover the secrets of the rainforest, strolling through the gourmet and shopping quarter of Kapahulu in Honolulu and relaxing in a downtown wine bar in the evening.

    After some relaxing days at sea, during which you can focus completely on your own well-being with our Body & Soul programme, your cruise will be rounded off with a day and a night in SAN FRANCISCO. This legendary hippy metropolis is full of sights, from the cable cars to the former pier Fisherman’s Wharf to the colourful Victorian houses on Alamo Square. Admire the Golden Gate Bridge – and perhaps even cross this architectural icon by bicycle. A wonderful way to round off an idyllic cruise.

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

    This journey will delight you with the following program

    Opera ball

    Once again this year, the on-board programme will be determined by the waves in waltz time as we say “Let the waltz begin.” Whilst the debutantes will have taken to the floor for the magnificent Opera Ball at the Wiener Staatsoper in Vienna a few days previously, the officers and crew members on board will start their dance thousands of nautical miles away. Here, in the midst of a sea of flowers and a venue decorated especially for the event, you can dance the night away in evening dress. At the EUROPA Opera Ball, you will also be treated to culinary delights to rival those served in Vienna.

    Time to celebrate

    To mark the EUROPA’s special anniversary year, we’ve planned 20 extraordinary events that will take place on 20 different cruises – from exclusive shore excursions to unique experiences ashore to unforgettable moments on board. Look forward to the surprises that await you.

    Refresh Body

    With Refresh Body, the focus is on your holistic well-being. Start your day with vitality and activity and lay the foundations on board for a sustainable, healthy lifestyle. Presentations and individual coaching sessions, as well as a programme of classes and training with notable experts, will provide you with valuable information on physical activity, nutrition and relaxation. Give your health and body the time they deserve.

    Please note that this format will exclusively be held in German.
