EUROPA 2 is the contemporary and informal interpretation of a luxury ship with 5-star standard. From 2013 onwards the new ship will be setting sail for Hapag-Lloyd Cruises. The STX shipyard in French St. Nazaire has been commissioned with her building. The 20-month building period begins in September 2011.

For the first time ever, a second ship will be positioned in the luxury segment of the Hapag-Lloyd Cruises fleet. The EUROPA 2 will offer a modern and casual 5-star alternative to the existing EUROPA. The commisioning will be in spring 2013. show download

In a move that is unprecedented in the luxury segment of its fleet, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises is launching a second ship carrying the same name. Alongside the existing EUROPA, the EUROPA 2 will be positioned as a lifestyle-oriented and informal alternative on a 5-star level. Modern entertainment will replace the type of entertainment traditionally associated with cruises. The contemporary, luxurious design and the informal atmosphere with international flair will convey a feeling of relaxed elegance.

The EUROPA 2 with her eleven decks and 258 suites will accommodate a maximum of 516 passengers and offers the largest amount of space per passenger on a cruise ship. The ship offers exclusively veranda suites with a minimum size of 28 square metres. Spa, penthouse and family suites complement the accommodation range. Seven restaurants, including Sushi Bar, two lounges and four bars offer culinary diversity and a multi-facetted entertainment programme. A large wellness and spa zone as well as a variety of sport- and health-oriented facilities do justice to the current trend towards active holidays and wellbeing.

With seven-day combinable cruises to the Mediterranean in the summer months and to distant destinations in winter, the EUROPA 2 will particularly fulfil the requirements of guests who are still working and families who are looking for a casual holiday in an elegant ambience at sea. Equipped with a fleet of Zodiacs, the EUROPA 2 will also be in a position to offer landings in small harbours and little bays off the customary routes.
