Arriving in Lisbon

The roots of historic Lisbon's fame lie in its strategic position on the edge of the Atlantic and the fact it offers one of the world's greatest natural harbours.

The Ship

MS Europa 2

Europa 2 at sea
Europa 2 Pooldeck
Europa 2 Sansibar

Widely acclaimed as the best ship in the world, Europa 2’s stylish Nordic décor, fantastic accommodation and great dining options make her a great choice

What we love

Europa 2 really is a ship with a difference, and you feel it from the moment you step on board. Her beautiful light-flooded interiors are fresh and inviting, and the feeling of space created by innovative design is vastly refreshing. This dedication to design is not, incidentally, confined to public areas: the elegant suites themselves are a wonderful place to stay.

Capacity 500
Crew 370
Style For the young and young at heart, the laid-back ambience is elegant but totally informal. English is spoken fluently by the crew, but you should be aware that your fellow guests may not be equally bilingual; German may well be the lingua franca of the ship (as it were).
Inclusions
  • Dining in seven gourmet restaurants
  • Extraordinary on board art gallery
  • Show productions and concerts
  • Zodiac rides
  • Excellent fitness courses
  • Exceptionally well equipped gym and spa
