Our mission

This very special atmosphere is what makes the EUROPA so unique. An oft-described feeling that begins with a greeting from the famously attentive crew. The remarkable crew-to-guest ratio of almost one to one creates an atmosphere that is as personal as it is inspiring, encouraging guests to come together. The EUROPA is a fascinating place with surprises at every turn.

That makes the EUROPA so unique?

Award-winning luxury cruise
The luxurious comfort on board the EUROPA has received the distinction of 5-stars-plus by the Berlitz Cruise Guide 2020 – making it the best cruise ship in the world.

An outstanding crew
The attention paid to your individual wishes by our German-speaking crew is legendary. With a crew-to-guest ratio of almost one to one, everything revolves around your wishes on board.

A feast for gourmets
There are no limits to the culinary delights served in our five restaurants. Whether you choose the creations of popular three-star chef Kevin Fehling or caviar in its finest form and other delicacies outside on deck, enjoy gourmet cuisine.

Front-row seats around the world
The pleasantly small size of the ship means the EUROPA can also take you to places on global routes that are unreachable by other cruise ships.

Setting the stage for the extraordinary
A wonderful entertainment programme with famous artists and insights into exciting worlds with notable experts and personalities will satisfy all aspects of your curiosity.

EUROPA refresh
Devote yourself to your body, spirit and soul on board. Our holistic programme for your well-being allows you to enjoy some personal time to relax and inspire you to try something new.

Great style can be so relaxed
Rather than following a strict dress code, great style is based on your own personal taste. Give your individuality free rein, and look forward to plenty of space to try out new things and reinvent yourself every day. Allow yourself a little break from wearing a tie – and enjoy the feeling of just being yourself.
