Cruising With The Kids Aboard EUROPA 2
EUROPA 2, recently rated five-star plus by Berlitz, offers many cruise options for families – including a comprehensive kids club.
Hapag-Lloyd Cruises really do have the family aspect of cruise travel down to a fine art aboard EUROPA 2, in fact, we think she is one of the best family-friendly luxury cruise ships out there and we highly recommend her for your next family adventure.
On selected Family Cruises, special, escorted family excursions ashore are provided as well as programmes onboard, such as ‘tours of discovery’ for young people. Please speak to one of our Cruise Experts for more information on these special excursion options by calling the number you see above and below.
Facilities for three age groups onboard: Knopf Club, Kids Club, Teens Club
Qualified staff look after two to three year olds in the Knopf Club, which is equipped with cots and baby change units (subject to a charge). There is also a Steiff snuggly lounge here, which was arranged by the renowned toy manufacturer Steiff within the framework of an exclusive co-operation with Hapag-Lloyd Cruises. Käpt’n Knopf, the mascot on all family cruises is also a real Steiff bear.
The four to eleven year olds can look forward to the Kids Club. There is also an age-appropriate children's library imparting knowledge and providing a theatre, a research laboratory, a climbing wall and modern gaming consoles like Sony PlayStation and Nintendo Wii. Games and activities like a treasure hunt on board are also offered regularly.
The Teens Club is focused on the requirements of young people between the ages of eleven and fifteen. Table football, iPod chairs, a chill out area and PCs with Internet access and gaming consoles are available here. The supervisors also organise additional activities like sample visits to the spa.
Eight family apartments onboard EUROPA 2
As part of her scheduled docking earlier this year, EUROPA 2 underwent some modernization works: among others, further improvements were made to the eight family apartments onboard, tailoring them even more to the needs of families, with a section of each split suite converted especially for children and teenagers; and also featuring a baby changing table, a children’s bathroom with bathtub, bunk beds (one of which is a Pullman couch), a play area with painting and games table, and a gaming console.
