EUROPA 2 Awarded 5-Star Plus In Berlitz Cruise Guide 2016

Hapag-Lloyd Cruises EUROPA and EUROPA 2 awarded highest distinction in the Berlitz Cruise Guide 2016.

EUROPA and EUROPA 2 have defended their pole position and have been awarded the highest distinction as the only 5-star plus cruise ships in the world. Attaining 1,860 points out of a possible 2,000, EUROPA 2 achieved the highest score among all ships and has been awarded 5-stars-plus for the third consecutive time. EUROPA, which has achieved this award for the 16th year consecutively, received 1,852 points.

MS HANSEATIC also retained her 5-star rating as the only expedition ship globally, achieving 1,758 points; and BREMEN received the distinction 4-stars-plus with 1,555 points.

Hapag-Lloyd Cruises is one of Europe’s premier luxury and expedition cruise lines and was founded by Hanseatic merchants over 160 years ago. This 5-star plus cruise line offers a choice of cruises to some of the world’s best destinations, including the Mediterranean, Far East, Middle East and Caribbean, as well as voyages to off-the-beaten path regions including the Amazon and Polar Regions via MS HANSEATIC.

The accommodation options and facilities aboard all Hapag-Lloyd vessels are first class and more akin to that of a boutique hotel, whilst the range and variety of shore excursions on proffer something to suit all tastes. If expedition and adventure are calling your name, then consider a journey aboard MS HANSEATIC, and if a Mediterranean discovery or Caribbean beach sound good then we recommend EUROPA 2.

The 31th edition of Berlitz Cruise guide the author Douglas Ward and his team tested a total of 270 cruise ships from large to small and scored them based on criteria such as ship fittings, accommodation, food quality, service, crew, entertainment and the cruise experience.
