The most luxurious cruise line you’ve…

….never heard of.

“Great moments. Truly exclusive.”

So boasts the orange sleeve that holds each cabin key card for Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ luxury cruise ship Europa 2. Only they’re not cabins. Every single one of the 251 rooms on the ship is a suite — with a balcony.

Passengers, the vast majority well-off Germans, happily pay $500 a day or much more (not including bar drinks or shore excursions) to cruise on the casual-chic small ship that’s as sleek and well built as a high-end BMW or Mercedes. Two-thirds of passengers are repeaters.

Yet even with bilingual cruises on Europa 2, the cruise line isn’t well known among English-speaking travelers.

But sometimes you want more than just relaxation.
