EUROPA 2 Guests Set The Course On Surprise Cruise

In May 2016, guests aboard Hapag-Lloyd Cruises EUROPA 2 will take the helm and set the course of the cruise by voting for each destination. The only fixed ports on the itinerary are the ports of departure and disembarkation.

In addition to the surprise cruise, the first international circus arts festival will also take place onboard this sailing, and German jazz and pop musician Roger Cicero will be performing his songs live.

Captain Christian van Zwamen, of EUROPA 2, will present guests with a list of potential routes and ports, and point out which locations will be the sunniest over the next few days. A lecturer will also be on hand to describe the highlights of the potential destinations. Once all information has been passed on, guests will then vote to determine their route across Greece and Turkey. There are 20 destinations in the eastern Mediterranean to choose from, including Limenas, Kavala, Samos and Mykonos.

Talented performers in the “Artistika” circus arts festival will deliver thrills of a different kind, when the event takes place at sea for the very first time. Six stars from the circus will defy gravity, and display their unique talents in the on-board theatre on Deck 4. The star-studded panel of judges consisting of Nina Burri (contortionist), Fafa (clown), Oropax (chaotic theatre duo) and Peter Shub (clown and director) will join the audience in choosing the best acrobat at two competition evenings, with Roger Cicero as patron.

Guests can also look forward to a musical surprise when Roger Cicero performs acoustic versions of his songs supported by just one guitarist.
