Hapag Lloyd Cruises’ Europa 2 Sets Sail

europa 2 2Earlier today, Hapag Lloyd’s newest luxury ship, the Europa 2, set sail from Southampton on one her first voyages.

The Europa 2 is currently sailing a short preview cruise for select media guests, leading travel agents, and invited guests of Hapag Lloyd Cruises. While I am having trouble locating an official itinerary for this particular media cruise, John Honeywell, a media member currently aboard the Europa 2, had described the cruise as “a nice jaunt around the Isle of Wight.” The Europa 2 will end her preview cruise in the city of Hamburg, where she will set sail on her first inaugural cruise a day after her christening in the Port of Hamburg on May 10th.

The Europa’s first inaugural cruise will take her guests on a 14 night cruise from Hamburg to Lisbon, calling in ports along the Dutch, French, Spanish, and Portuguese coast. From Lisbon, Europa 2 will go on to sail a variety of Mediterranean cruise varying between 7 and 16 nights.
