    The highlights of this cruise

    The EUROPA 2 welcomes you in Auckland, from where your extraordinary cruise will first take you to Mount Maunganui (Tauranga). Get to know the Maori culture* here and discover the thermal springs* of Rotorua. Kaiteriteri and Nelson are known for their breathtaking nature, which you can best enjoy in Abel Tasman National Park*. After a stay in Picton, one of the most charming areas of New Zealand, and a wine tasting in the famous wine-growing region of Marlborough*, wonderfully relaxing festive days await you. On Christmas Eve, spend a restful day in the Bay of Islands, a stunning landscape of bays and turquoise-blue water. On board, everything is already prepared for a peaceful Christmas Eve. Let yourself be pampered and experience an unforgettable festive celebration at sea. Via Noumea, we will then head to Ile des Pins and Mare in New Caledonia. Picturesque beaches invite you to relax, and colourful coral reefs enchant you while snorkelling. The island state of Vanuatu exudes exotic flair with Inyeug (Mystery Island) and the capital Port Vila on Efate. Usher in the New Year on the Fiji Islands. Explore the capital Suva on Viti Levu, the volcanic Kabara Island and the lush “garden island” Taveuni (Somosomo). Dravuni is the perfect place to unwind. At the end of the cruise, you will return to Viti Levu. Discover the Nausori Highlands in an all-terrain vehicle* from Port Denarau. The EUROPA 2 will then bid you farewell in Lautoka.
