Tailor-Made Shore Excursion Arrangements Onboard Europa 2
Shore excursions play a key role in our overall cruise experience and Hapag-Lloyd are offering some incredibly unique experiences from January 2014 onboard Europa 2.
Whether it be tailor-made arrangements organised by the travel concierge service, late afternoon excursions for guests who are late risers or independent exploration – Hapag-Lloyd have got it covered and their shore excursions staff will ensure every passengers wish comes true. Among the highlights bookable are diving excursions to explore the unique underwater world of Asia.
Europa 2 will set sail to a range of destinations, including Thailand and Vietnam – two of Asia’s most beautiful diving destinations. Guests on board the Europa 2 can discover the unique underwater world during special open water dives. All that is needed first is proof of holding the appropriate qualification. The underwater excursions are led by expert divers from certified diving schools and they can be booked during the cruise through the on-board travel concierge service.
"Activity and adventure tours play a major role in Europa 2's on-shore programmes. The extensive choice includes canoeing, rafting and horse-riding on Phuket, or excursions in which guest’s get to know the destinations authentically, for example a cooking class in a local restaurant. In addition we offer more classic excursions such as city tours and visits to nearby sights and attractions, often with a different interpretation - for example a Segway tour through Manila", says Julian Pfitzner, Director Product Management Europa 2.
Children onboard are also well catered for with those aged between four and ten and teenagers from eleven to 15 able to explore their surroundings via their own escorted excursions which of course shall be free from parents. Highlights include trips with the zodiacs and snorkelling in the crystal-clear water of Yalong Bay on the Chinese holiday island of Hainan. There are also special family excursions to cater for the whole family, such as a trip to Vinpearl Land Water Park in Nha Trang, Vietnam.
