If you want to get acquainted with the weekend, there are two four-day trips on the Mediterranean, either from Palma de Mallorca to Nice or from Monte Carlo to Monte Carlo. In general, the roads of New Europe are slightly shorter than in previous years in order to offer a more varied and flexible range. Several stages can still be combined. The longest phase takes 62 days. The ‘Around the World in Five Phases’ concept allows guests to travel the world on five consecutive itineraries. The entire journey from Hamburg to Hamburg takes 265 days. A Christmas trip from the East to the West Coast of South America is also a highlight. It’s part of the theater from Barbados to Panama City and takes guests around South America in 50 days. The main new EUROPA catalog also focuses on travel coordination, for example within the framework of the EUROPA Refresh Wellbeing Program. During the cruise from Asia to Europe, guests receive new impulses for their well-being and can relax in front of the backdrop of the Indian Ocean with yoga workshops or meditations.

This trip is also an art2sea-coordinated excursion, where art experts accompany the trip, organizing an on-board exhibit in their own gallery to match the route and give insight into the international art scene during exclusive visits to galleries, galleries and museums. Europe 2 is also heading for the first time on the road from China to Japan to Tianjin as the starting point for a trip to Beijing. However, if you want to practice innovative training methods and relaxation techniques in the Far East with well-known athletes and experts, you can combine that with a trip from Mahe (Seychelles) to Cape Town. The IN2BALANCE pathway lives through the contrasts and experiences of nature: while those seeking relaxation increase their stamina, strength and focus under the guidance of coaches, they enjoy sandy beaches, species-rich fauna and flora, and vibrant capitals such as Durban or Cape Town.
