Passage through the Suez Canal/Egypt
This cruise on the EUROPA 2 will take you through the Suez Canal - more than 190 km (118 mi.) in length - between Port Said and Port Taufiq. When it was opened over 150 years ago, the canal was a shining example of engineering skill and a logistical masterpiece. It remains truly impressive to this day, as you will see as you sail through the desert, with the landscape on the banks seeming close enough to touch.
Relaxation at sea
A ship packed with potential favourites: embark on a voyage of culinary discovery in the seven gourmet restaurants and look forward to modern creations or timeless classics. Pamper your mind and body in the OCEAN SPA and fitness facilities, with over 1,000 m² (10,764 ft²) of space. Or be inspired by the first-rate entertainment in the evenings. Whatever you choose, each day on the EUROPA 2 brings relaxation and enjoyment.

After one final night on board, your cruise on the EUROPA 2 comes to an end.
