    The highlights of this cruise

    Dubai
    Unbelievable marine acrobatics.
    Take to the air on a Flyboard in Dubai! This new trend uses the power of water to lift you up to 9 m (29 ft) above the water – an unbelievable feeling. A taster course – which the travel concierge** will be happy to arrange – will introduce you to this breathtaking form of marine acrobatics against the legendary backdrop of JBR beach.
    Mumbai
    Taxi, please!
    Taxis are the best way to get around the bustling city of Mumbai, even if the vehicles tend to be modestly equipped. To change this, the “Taxi Fabric” artists’ community has made it their goal to gradually turn the city’s taxis into works of art on wheels. Using colourful upholstery, funky airbrushing and unusual roof coverings, they turn normal taxis into true gems. With luck you will hail one of these cult objects – keep your eyes open and your thumbs ready!
    Legendary Taj Mahal
    One of the New Seven Wonders of the World awaits: the Taj Mahal. Leave the ship for a three-day excursion programme* and explore the legendary palace, its impressive marble pillars and secrets at length. You will return to the EUROPA 2 in Mumbai, taking with you a wealth of unforgettable impressions.
    * The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to change.
    ** These tips are individual activities which are not organised by Hapag-Lloyd Cruises. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises makes no guarantee in connection with opening hours. Our travel concierge will be happy to help (fees apply).
    NOTE ON RAMADAN:
    This cruise takes place during the fasting month of Ramadan. During this time, it is not permitted to consume food or drink in public during the day. Local restaurants will not open until the evening.
