    The highlights of this cruise

    TAHITI is your gateway to the South Seas, dream beaches, tropical rainforests and mysterious traditions. MOOREA and BORA BORA are just as magical as legend has it. The lagoons and outer reefs sparkle in the sunshine and invite you to swim through the shallow waters and enjoy the view of the green mountain peaks from one of the outlying motus. The underwater world is amazingly diverse too. Embark on a little adventure and go snorkelling* to observe the colourful inhabitants up-close among the coral and, with a little luck, encounter dolphins and sea turtles. The lagoons of the Cook Islands shimmer in every imaginable shade of blue and turquoise and the peace that fills the sandy beaches is interrupted only by the whisper of palm trees. Enjoy your days in paradise when the EUROPA reaches the atoll of AITUTAKI and forget all about everyday life as you relax on RAROTONGA. The coming days at sea chart a course for relaxation. This is the perfect time to settle down with your favourite book on deck, swim a few lengths in the pool and let yourself be thoroughly pampered by our attentive crew.

    The Kingdom of TONGA is sure to get you in the mood for discovery. The friendly islanders will be happy to point you in the direction of the Royal Palace from the Victorian era or the authentic shops and restaurants on Taufa’ahau Road as you explore independently on foot. Your first footsteps in the soft sand of exotic Fiji will be on KABARA ISLAND. Local craftspeople carve small treasures from the wood of the vesi trees – perhaps you’ll find the perfect souvenir. A warm welcome and traditional floral decorations await guests on the unspoilt island of TAVEUNI. The view of burbling waterfalls and fragrant flowers invite you to go hiking* beneath the rainforest canopy. Or simply enjoy life on the beach – the palm-lined beaches of DRAVUNI seem like they were made for relaxation. Experience Fiji’s beauty in PORT DENARAU in all its diversity one last time, perhaps with a walk through the orchid garden* and a visit to the traditional village of Viseisei*.

    Winding waterways and dense vegetation, hundreds of little islands with white bays – the BAY OF ISLANDS is just as much of a paradise now as it was in Captain Cook’s day. You too will fall in love with New Zealand’s breathtaking nature as you delve deeper into the interior to reach the Puketi kauri forest*. There are several hiking routes here surrounded by dense forest and the last native kauri trees, with some paths even leading you high into the treetops. A special treasure thrives on WAIHEKE ISLAND. In recent years, the island has made a name for itself as a renowned wine-growing region and wine connoisseurs are warmly welcomed to the numerous vineyards. Raise a glass to the wonders of New Zealand before you start your journey home after a night on board in AUCKLAND.

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