Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Hanseatic Inspiration

The food in 2 main restaurants is consistently good even great sometimes. The eggs Benedict for breakfast is the best I have ever had The japanse fusion NIKKEI is ok but a lovely cosy atmosphere and great service Now the minus side To have to buy still water for meals is ridiculous 5.80eu for a bottle. When it is freely available in the suites We had 12 bad movies for an 18 day ...

A New Favorite Cruise Line

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on Europa 2

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

As American English-speaking first timers on Hapag-Lloyd, we chose this cruise to try the storied line (with a long and very distinguished history, much like Cunard), and to be on a smaller upmarket ship, but with a completely different, German vibe. We were not disappointed. It was a wonderful overall cruise experience. Europa 2 is a small(er) ship and is quiet and subdued, with a very sleek ...

Wonderful luxury Baltic classical music cruise, Ocean Sun Festival 6/25/23-7/7/23

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on Europa

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

OVERVIEW: I have done multiple cruises with Hapag Lloyd's (HL) small luxury ships over the last eight years, the MS Europa (German is the on-board language) and the Europa 2 (German and English are on board languages). Amazingly, even since Covid, unlike on some other "luxury' lines, food, service, ship condition, and overall organization have remained outstanding on the Europa, nearly ...

It’s not the food; it’s everything else.

Review for a Asia Cruise on Europa 2

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

My wife and I both had fathers from Germany, yet we speak no German. This for the most part was a plus on this cruise: the Captain gave his twice daily messages in German and then English; almost all the crew members spoke fair to excellent English as did the majority of passengers, and we never heard a single comment in English that wasn’t directed to or from us. It was a stress free ...

Review for a Mediterranean Cruise on Europa

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

BACKGROUND: This was my first post-Covid trip on Hapag Lloyd's small luxury ship the MS Europa. I had sailed on her several times pre-Covid (last time was September 2019) and had very much enjoyed the seamless service and excellent food (both international and German). The main reason for my booking this particular trip (booked almost three years ago), was for the annual classical music Ocean ...

More regular cruise than Expedition.

Review for a Canary Islands Cruise on Hanseatic Inspiration

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We landed at Tenerife South airport and were driven north to La Laguna the old capital. March weather was damp and windy! We required a PCR test before boarding at Santa Cruz but due to our taxi drop at the gangway and very swift embarcation we later turned ourselves in as tested and non febrile. The ships voyages had recently been changed and this first of 3 in the Canary islands well ...

Beautiful, Relaxing Experience

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on Europa 2

Swaraelia
2-5 Cruises • Age Under 20

The Europa 2-even the name exudes luxury, style, and quite a Eurocentric flair to life that I have come to learn and love on my eight night sailing to the beautiful Mediterranean. The cost-incredibly expensive, but the experience-unmatched. PRE-BOARDING DOCUMENTS The catalogues and call-back service was phenomenal, as well as the website being easy to navigate, although at times a bit ...

Beautiful Scenery, Luxurious Ship

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on Europa

Swaraelia
10+ Cruises • Age Under 20

I first read about Europa in Berlitz's 2017 guide, fantastic, by the way, in case you're looking for in-depth research about individual ships not on CruiseCritic. I am an American who went on this amazing ship for just over a week, albeit that it was quite difficult not knowing any German prior, but I felt interacting with fellow passengers who spoke at least some English or Chinese (which I ...

Stunning ship, worth the premium. Germans know how to have fun!

Review for a Mediterranean Cruise on Europa 2

Ovener
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

I’m putting up this review almost 11 months after our first cruise on Europa 2, as I noticed recent reviews are sparse. In part, that’s probably because the ship gets booked up so far ahead by the German market that very few non-Germans manage to get cabins. Since our Venice to Mallorca cruise on Europa 2, we’ve done another one on Seabourn Odyssey and one on Crystal Serenity, both good but which ...

Fantastic NICE-BILBAO luxury classical music cruise, outstanding food, service!

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on Europa

Catlover54
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

SHORT VERSION: I greatly enjoyed the outstanding food, service, and classical music on this luxury small ship cruise and plan to return soon. Details: I am an American who did this two-week luxury small ship cruise solo from Nice to Bilbao. I chose it primarily for the intimate classical music experience it offered with its Ocean Sun Festival. To compare, I have done various other mostly ...
