    The highlights of this cruise

    A cruise with gin.
    Did you know that with 37 varieties, the EUROPA 2 has the largest selection of gins on all the world’s oceans? The range includes a true rarity that was produced in cooperation with Altonaer Spirituosen Manufaktur – Cruzeiro do Sul. What makes this so special? Distilled in Hamburg, the gin was poured into four large oak barrels that embarked on a four-month cruise to Lisbon on our Deck 8. Having battled wind, weather and swells, this gin is very special. Make sure to try it in one of the bars on the EUROPA 2: after all, it’s an extremely limited edition.
    State of the art.
    A full day for discoveries and relaxation on board: it is not just art lovers who will notice something special about the more than 890 originals that can be found throughout the entire ship. Admire, for example, the oil painting Dogs by Cornelius Völker in Restaurant Tarragon. Or discover Christian Schoppe’s postcard collection. As well as the works of ambitious young artists, you can also find plenty of famous artists like Gerhard Richter and Damien Hirst. The EUROPA 2 – a floating gallery.
    Twenty-one knots and no tie.
    A comfortable daybed or a spot by the pool are perfect for reflecting on the idyllic impressions of your first days. Simply relax, cast your gaze over the ocean and enjoy a cool drink on the Pool Deck. How about a multifaceted show in the evening? Or follow the sounds of the DJ into the Sansibar and dance until the sun comes up.

    Your ship - MS EUROPA 2

    Twenty-one-knots. And no tie.

    All the promises of a yacht and the serenity of a small resort: on board the EUROPA 2, you can enjoy the highest level of casual luxury with a maximum of 500 guests. The ship has been awarded the coveted distinction of 5-stars-plus by the Berlitz Cruise Guide 2018.

    The perfect way to travel from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean: on this cruise, the EUROPA 2 will take you through the Suez Canal – more than 190 km (118 mi.) in length – between Port Taufiq and Port Said.
