Europa 2 completes float out ceremony

Just four months after the keel was laid on Hapag Lloyd Cruise's new ship Europa 2 - the hull touched water for the first time at a float out ceremony held at STX France in Saint-Nazaire on 6th July. Now begins the next construction phase - outfitting the steel hull and superstructure with cabins, public room and open decks

EUROPA 2 will feature:-

  • 251 all-balcony suites
  • 8 Restaurants
  • 6 bars
  • A theatre

835 shipyard workers are involved in the build, providing over2.5 milliion hours of labour, using 10,000 tonnes of steel.

The ship is expected to be delivered to Hapag-Lloyd Cruises at the end of April 2013. Her 14-day maiden voyage from Hamburg to Lisbon will take place from 11 until 25 May 2013.

EUROPA 2 will feature eleven decks, all-suites with their own outdoor verandas, and the largest space per passenger ratio in the cruise industry. All of the cruises of the EUROPA 2 will be international, meaning they will be conducted in both German and English for the duration of all cruises. An English-language brochure will be published in the autumn of 2012.
