Hapag-Lloyd Cruises‘ Europa 2 made her maiden call into the port of Portsmouth on 2nd June. Launched in May 2013, the 740ft vessel has since been named the number-one cruise ship in the world by the Berlitz Guide to Cruising & Cruise Ships.
The vessel arrived from Honfleur at around 8am, where 500 guests enjoyed the day exploring the historic naval port. The ship departed for Guernsey at 9pm, with British pop singer Kim Wilde on board. She will make a performance on board the vessel on 6th June, when the vessel is joined by sister-ship Europa in Bordeaux. To celebrate, guests on board the Europa, will be invited on board the Europa 2, to enjoy the live and up close performance.
