Setting sail from Port Louis

The lovely island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean is striking in the contrasts between its mountainous backdrop and beautiful white sand beaches. The capital Port Louis, on the northwest coast, dates back to 1735 and is a busy administrative centre, packed with office workers during the day. Interesting as it is, visitors arriving in Port Louis may well choose to travel immediately to other areas of the island, as it boasts many excellent hotels. Although English is the official language, French is more widely spoken and most Mauritians will also speak Creole in relaxed settings.

Don't miss

The Aapravasi Ghat Immigration Depot, a UNESCO World Heritage site. This historical depot welcomed over half a million immigrants in the late 19th century and has an extraordinary history.

Arriving in Colombo

Don't be deceived by the urban sprawl; Colombo may be a little chaotic, but there is plenty to recommend Sri Lanka's colourful capital. Faded colonial architecture and beautiful Buddhist temples hint at the city's considerable history, while the excellent restaurants, lively bars and characterful streets provide the perfect introduction to contemporary Sri Lankan culture.

The Ship

MS Europa 2

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
