    The highlights of this cruise

    “Moin” is the motto in Hamburg. With this casual greeting, the crew of the EUROPA 2 welcomes you warmly. After a day at sea, Antwerp awaits you, the home of the famous painter Peter Paul Rubens. Discover the brilliant artist on a guided tour of the museum*. In Honfleur, France, you can look forward to an exclusive tour in a “Duck”, or Citroen 2CV**, through Normandy and to the elegant seaside resort of Deauville*. It will be “very British” by the time you reach the Channel Islands. Soak up the flair in St Helier on Jersey and take an extraordinary tour in a vintage bus* in Saint Peter Port on Guernsey The charm of romantic fishing villages, thatched cottages and wild nature make Cornwall unique. On a scenic tour* from Falmouth, you will discover the highlights of the county. Quite different but equally enchanting and more than idyllic is the natural beauty of the Isles of Scilly, St Mary’s and Tresco. After a day at sea, the south-western coast of France is in sight: head up the Gironde River to Bordeaux amidst beautiful scenery. Sample fine wines at Chateau de La Dauphine*, relax on a boat trip* in the bay of Arcachon and enjoy freshly caught oysters*. In Bilbao, a visit to the Guggenheim Museum,* an architectural jewel, is a wonderful way to end your cruise. In the largest city of the Basque country, the EUROPA 2 will bid you farewell.

    * The pre- and post-cruise programmes and shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to change.

At the heart of the city of Ghent is Europe's mightiest moated castle. From here, on a stretch no more than 500 m long, numerous magnificent structures soar skywards, uniting to present an impressive picture of medieval city architecture.

    Experience the world’s best golf courses with Hapag-Lloyd Cruises.

    On our exclusive Golf & Cruise voyages, we have reserved the best golf courses for you in advance and put together attractive basic packages.

    Basic package: four courses
    € 1,990 per person

    On course for the English Channel. Between Europe and Great Britain, four extraordinary golf courses are on the Golf & Cruise programme. The MS EUROPA 2 will first sail along the western coast of central Europe, then make a detour to the southern coast of Great Britain and from there return to the European mainland. And at each destination, you will come upon the finest opportunities to play golf – and sporting experiences that you will be happy to take home with you.


    Wed 09.07.2025 Antwerp, Belgium – Rinkven Golf Club Located not far from the city centre, this course offers 36 holes divided into a north and a south course. The relatively slim design of the entire course leads through mature trees, which limit the playing areas accordingly. Both courses have numerous water hazards that repeatedly seek contact with the fairways. However, if you manage not to get distracted, you will greatly enjoy your round of golf in this landscape.

    Fri 11.07.2025 Honfleur, France – Golf Barriere Deauville
    The course in the hills of Mont Canisy is very close to the mooring point of the EUROPA 2. This course dates back to 1929 and is one of the first created by Tom Simpson. There are three well-designed nine-hole courses, divided into red, white and blue, which provide every opportunity for players of different levels. The nicely planted fairways always weave past mature trees and expansive heathland. This type of layout demands a continuous straight line in terms of play.

    Mon 14.07.2025 Falmouth, Great Britain – Falmouth Golf Club The successful mixture of parkland and links course lies above the bay of Pennance Point. This striking location was chosen and set up as a suitable course as early as 1894. Relatively straight and wide fairways almost always create a good starting position. Particularly worth mentioning is hole 13, a par 4 with a length of 254 m (833 ft). It offers unobstructed views of the village and Pendennis Castle on the left side.

    Thu 17.07.2025 Bordeaux, France – Golf du Medoc
    This multi-award-winning golf course lies in what is possibly the world’s most famous wine-growing region. The Chateaux Course has been a special feature of this 36-hole course since 1989. The typical parkland course blends harmoniously into the surrounding natural environment with its fairways, whilst always maintaining a link to the nearby wine-growing areas. At the wine tasting that follows your game, you can look forward to a lovely glass of red from the region.
