    The highlights of this cruise

    Radiant sunshine in spacious parks, trendy cafes in chic street malls and laid-back locals – BRISBANE and Australia’s unique attitude to life will instantly put you in the holiday mood. The EUROPA leaves the capital of Queensland in the early evening and sets sail for the private paradise island of MIDDLE PERCY. When you’re surrounded by the snow-white beaches, palm trees and fragrant eucalyptus trees, everyday life seems a long way away. It’s worth getting up early in CAIRNS: As the sunrise bathes the city in golden light, your hot air balloon* will take off for an unforgettable panoramic trip. One of the world’s largest natural treasures lies off the coast: Join us for a boat trip to the outer reaches of the Great Barrier Reef* and go snorkelling with the colourful creatures that live in the Coral Sea. DARWIN lies on the wild north coast. Australia’s northernmost city is the gateway to the outback and offers fascinating diversity. The lively streets are filled with Asian influences and inviting galleries that provide interesting insights into Aboriginal art. Want to discover more of Australia’s natural beauty? Hiking trails in Litchfield National Park* lead through tropical rainforests to bizarre rock formations and idyllic waterfalls.

    After three carefree days at sea, BORNEO will quicken the pulse of adventurers and nature lovers alike. Head out on an expedition into the rainforest in search of orangutans, proboscis monkeys and sun bears, or visit the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre* to find out more about the extensive conservation project. In the days ahead, the Philippines will invite you to relax and dream. The country of scattered islands beckons with unspoilt nature and picture-perfect beaches. Enjoy the unforgettable moments when your feet sink into the soft sands of the beach at BALABAC or when you reach the mysterious Sabang underground river* in the jungle of PALAWAN. EL NIDO will enchant you with its crystal-clear waters and blue lagoons. Our tip: A trip in the traditional outrigger boats* will take you to hidden bays filled with the magical glow of fabulous shades of blue and green. On CORON, take advantage of the chance to experience the everyday hustle and bustle here and make a detour to the market. One last beach day on CRESTA DE GALLO promises great island romance before you set off from MANILA on your journey home with plenty of unforgettable memories.
