Europe's Coast of Art
MS Europa 2 Voyage 1417 - June 23-July 5, 2014 - Hamburg-Barcelona

Set a course from Hamburg to the port city of Southampton. Here you will find British tradition and contemporary art. Take a trip to London*, the epitome of the British lifestyle and the starting point for the greatest sight in the city’s vicinity: Stonehenge*. The culture capital of Santiago de Compostela* with its cathedral is one of the most important Christian pilgrimage sites and it is the destination of the Way of St James. Seville’s* skyline is shaped by the cathedral’s bell tower, and you can follow in the footsteps of great artists such as Picasso in Malaga. Visit futuristic buildings and Eastern influences in Valencia before your cruise along the western coast of Europe comes to an end.

The highlights of this cruise:

  • London* calling: trend scouting in the royal metropolis.
  • Artistic moments: in the footsteps of Picasso* in Malaga.
  • On board: Estrella Del Mar – lounge and chill-out music at the pool.
  • Golf & Cruise with our comprehensive golf package.

The EUROPA 2 will set a course from Hamburg to Southampton. Here, you will be greeted by British tradition and contemporary art: the Southampton City Art Gallery is one of the greatest collections in the UK. Set out on a fascinating trip to London* from this port city. Enjoy the greatest sights of this royal city, from Trafalgar Square to St Paul’s Cathedral. Alternatively, marvel at the mysteries and legends of Stonehenge* and explore the mediaeval townscape of Salisbury*. Visit the Palace of Beaulieu and the National Motor Museum*.

La Coruna/Spain, 8.00 – 18.00 hrs

After a relaxing day at sea, reach La Coruna with its 1,900-year-old landmark: the Tower of Hercules lighthouse, which remains operational. The historic old town is just as impressive as the gleaming facades in the port. La Coruna is also your gateway to one of the most important Christian pilgrimage sites: Santiago de Compostela*. Visit the grand cathedral, which is said to be built on the grave of the holy Saint James the Greater. The cathedral is the destination of the famous Way of St James, the final stage of which you can explore on a hike*.

28.06.2014
Lisbon/Portugal, arrival 18.00 hrs

You can also experience atmospheric moments in Lisbon. In the evening, dive into the indescribable feel of fado before exploring the city on the Tejo the following day in whatever way you choose: with a combination of a city tour and walk*, with the nostalgic tram* in narrow urban canyons or on a unique Segway tour*. Alternatively, let the backdrop of the whitewashed houses in Obidos and Alcobaca* enchant you.

Cadiz/Spain, 7.00 – 18.00 hrs

Cadiz offers the opportunity to take a relaxing stroll. With its picturesque streets, small squares and squat, flat-roofed houses, it has retained its original charm. From here, travel to the lively city of Seville*, where the skyline is shaped by the Giralda, the bell tower of the late-Gothic cathedral. Alternatively, experience Andalusian flair in Arcos and Jerez* or take a walk in the La Brena* natural park.

02.07.2014
Malaga/Spain, 7.00 – 0.00 hrs

Artistic masterpieces await you in Malaga, the birthplace of Pablo Picasso. Follow in his footsteps* through the outstanding collection in the Picasso Museum into the house where he was born. Alternatively, the Alhambra of Granada* is an excellent example of the Moorish-Arabian style. Almost unremarkable from the outside, the palace conceals surprising splendour with opulent gardens and rich ornaments. Ronda*, one of the oldest cities in Spain, will also lead you deep into the past.
