Your cruise on the EUROPA 2 starts in Lisbon with what is probably one of Europe’s most beautiful river journeys. Between the Atlantic and the delightful valley of the Douro wine region, Porto* invites you to visit its impressive squares, the Church of Sao Francisco, the magnificent stock exchange and the famous steel bridge over the Douro River.
Take a nostalgic trip through the old parts of town on the quaint tram*. After a relaxed day at sea, you’ll arrive in Bilbao, the colourful capital of the Basque Country. As well as the Guggenheim Museum* and its outstanding art, Bilbao also offers a picturesque old town that you can explore and enjoy on a guided walking tour with pintxos*. On the banks of the Garonne River, sights such as the Saint-Andre Cathedral are just waiting to be discovered in Bordeaux the next day on a city tour/walk* or a tuk-tuk ride*. You can also visit Arcachon Bay* and Europe’s largest sand dune*. Small but in a unique spot, the decidedly pretty capital Le Palais welcomes you to Belle-Ile, Brittany’s largest island. One-of-a-kind views of the diverse nature await you on a panoramic trip across the island* or a coastal hike*.
After these days filled with experiences, you can look forward to a relaxing day at sea before you reach St Malo in the early morning. The Breton port city with its magnificent location at the mouth of the wide Rance River still paints the picture of a medieval sea fortress with its walls. St Malo is not far from the monastic island of Mont-Saint-Michel*, the oyster town of Cancale* and the beautiful little town of Dinan*. Honfleur with its narrow lanes, half-timbered houses and many cafes and bistros is also extremely charming. Soak up the flair of the seafarers’ town or be inspired by the legendary seaside resort of Deauville with its impressive style and elegance on a walking tour*. Antwerp, Flanders’ “gateway to the world” awaits you with its pretty old town, art nouveau buildings, monuments and richly decorated guild houses. A city walk/tour* will show you the regional charms of Antwerp, or you can explore the city’s streets individually by electric tuk-tuk*. Your cruise on the EUROPA 2 draws to an end in the port of Hamburg on the Elbe with an overnight stay on board the EUROPA 2.
* The itinerary depends on official approvals. The organised shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. All shore activities may be cancelled at short notice, depending on the developments at the time of the cruise. The approval for independent shore visits may also be withdrawn in some destinations.

The cultural highlights of charming coastal cities and stunning panoramas along Western Europe’s Atlantic coast await you on this cruise from Lisbon to Hamburg. Visit Porto and Bordeaux, two wine-growing legends. Picturesque, historic sites await in the Basque Country, Brittany and Normandy before Antwerp, the glittering city of diamonds, draws you under its spell. Be enchanted by the savoir vivre of the Atlantic coast and the casual luxury of the EUROPA 2.
