The Hapag-Lloyd Cruises fleet

the world’s best moments


The EUROPA has been setting standards in the luxury cruise sector for many years. What distinguishes it? Character, individual service and a crew that makes the trip something special for discerning guests – awarded the 5 stars+ category, together with the EUROPA 2, she is considered the best cruise ship in the world (according to the Berlitz Cruise Guide). With a maximum of 400 guests and 285 crew members, the EUROPA offers plenty of space and freedom for extraordinary moments due to her small size. “The Globe” by Kevin Fehling and the caviar restaurant “Pearls” represent high-class cuisine.

Once a year the EUROPA goes on a world tour: Take advantage of the unique opportunity to travel to many exciting destinations around the world in a short time while working on board. From a beach BBQ in the Caribbean to a champagne reception on Easter Island. Countless #WorldClassMoments lie ahead of you on a trip around the world with MS EUROPA.
