    The highlights of this cruise

    Looking back at the green mountain peaks of MAURITIUS will make you want more. The island of REUNION is just a few nautical miles south – an inviting setting for an extraordinary pre-Christmas period. Gain an initial impression on a helicopter flight over the volcano*. Now you have a decision to make: would you prefer to explore jungle valleys and hidden waterfalls* or spend the day on the beach? A day at sea separates these moments from your visit to MADAGASCAR. After the island broke away from the continent millennia ago, unique flora and fauna have evolved without disruption. Around the harbour of AMBODIFOTATRA, you will have the opportunity to get to know the country and people much better. If you’re looking for a peaceful idyll, spend the afternoon enjoying the white beaches on the small island of NOSY NATO (ILE AUX NATTES). Spend the day before Christmas on MAMOUDZOU, the capital of Mayotte. With its unspoilt forests, one of the world’s largest lagoons and fragrant vanilla and ylang ylang fields, the fertile volcanic island is a remote insider tip. The next evening, we invite you to celebrate Christmas in style on board the EUROPA with views of the peaceful Indian Ocean and the light of the stars. Allow yourself to be thoroughly pampered and spend the coming Christmas holiday on picture-book islands.

    Situated in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the Seychelles remained largely undiscovered by Europeans until colonial times. For decades, the beaches of these scattered islands have been considered the world’s most beautiful. Sink your toes into the soft sand of DESROCHES and CURIEUSE and let your cares melt away. On LA DIGUE, the granite cliffs of Anse d’Argent, which have been polished to softness, have become a popular subject for photographs. The interiors of the Seychelles islands are as lushly green as their coasts are stunningly white. In particular, the main island of MAHE is the perfect place for a zipline adventure* or hike*. Our tip: if you have the time and inclination, take a detour to Selway Market in the capital, Victoria. Freshly caught fish and exotic fruits and spices are waiting to be sampled. The archipelago’s vast diversity also comes together on PRASLIN. The EUROPA will drop anchor off the coast for two full days. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Vallee de Mai* tops its list of beauties. Keep an eye out for the coco de mer, the world’s largest nut, in the shade of unspoilt palm forests in the nature reserve. In the evening, the EUROPA crew will be expecting you for a lively New Year’s party. Your first destination of the new year will be the idyllic islands of the MALDIVES. Enjoy the view from the deck when the EUROPA travels past the atolls, walk along the soft sand and surround yourself with the warm sea as you sunbathe. Your journey home begins the next morning in MALE, a vibrant trading post and the capital of the Maldives.

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