Join us onboard Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ EUROPA 2

This exciting TTG Luxury Journey will give two agents the chance to experience yacht-style cruising on Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ EUROPA 2 as the ship makes its way from the Balearic Islands to Lisbon, via southern Spain


Imagine combining the exclusivity and freedom of a yacht with the serenity of a small boutique resort – that’s the type of experience guests receive onboard Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ EUROPA 2, and now we are looking for two lucky agents to enjoy it for themselves on the latest TTG Luxury Journey.


EUROPA 2 is all about casual extravagance at the highest level. In fact, the ship has once again received the highest distinction of a five-star-plus rating from Berlitz Cruise Guide in 2020.


With a maximum capacity of 500 guests and more room per passenger than any other cruise ship, EUROPA 2 is more like a contemporary boutique hotel. It has been designed to be stylish and modern with an emphasis on light and space, so even when the ship is full, it still feels incredibly spacious.

The lucky agents will get to luxuriate in their own suites – all with private verandahs – when the ship sails from Palma de Mallorca to Lisbon, calling at Marbella and Cadiz en route.


The five-night trip, taking place in September, is one of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ fam trips and will include a workshop for the group as well as a gin tasting, guided tour of the ship, including the bridge, plus other onboard activities to create a unique and deluxe experience.


There will also be time to take advantage of the ship’s culinary delights, which will include dining at many of the seven restaurants, as well as a top-class range of wellness and fitness services, an art tour, the library and tea in the Observation Lounge. Agents will also experience at least one shore excursion.


Perfect partnership

“Hapag-Lloyd Cruises considers the UK one of its key international markets, and as TTG Luxury is such an important media brand within the industry, it’s the perfect fit,” said Aishling McLoughlin, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ sales representative for the UK and Ireland.


“We are still a hidden gem in the market to an extent, offering the perfect ships for UK cruise clients. This is why we need to build brand awareness and close collaborations with the many fantastic agent partners out there, to support them as much as possible so they can work their magic and sell our wonderful cruise experiences.”

Broaden horizons

While EUROPA 2 is a German cruise ship, you will not need to bring a German phrasebook or translation app, as the vessel offers bilingual cruises with all documentation, menus, announcements and lectures in English, as well as shore excursions on request. Plus, all crew and staff speak both German and English fluently.


The TTG Luxury Journey will give the winning agents an insight into this luxury ship, which not only travels to the Mediterranean’s hotspots but also visits many destinations larger ships cannot reach – from the smaller Greek islands to the Dalmatian coast, as well as cruising across the Indian Ocean from Mauritius to Cape Town.


Fine fleet

It’s the perfect time to get better acquainted with what Hapag-Lloyd Cruises has to offer UK clients, as the trip comes one year after the line launched its new bilingual expedition ship, HANSEATIC Inspiration.


The ship carries just 230 passengers and is offering expedition routes around the world. It’s the only one of the line’s three new expedition ships to be bilingual – sister ships HANSEATIC Spirit and HANSEATIC Nature will be German-speaking vessels only.


HANSEATIC Inspiration will sail 46 routes from November 2020 through to September 2022, including the Arctic and Antarctic, with a semi-circumnavigation of Antarctica planned for the start of 2022, as well as South America, South Africa, North America’s Great Lakes, western Europe, New Zealand, Japan and Alaska.


So there’s plenty of incentive to enter the competition to win one of these coveted places on the EUROPA 2 trip – not only will you get to enjoy a fantastic luxury onboard experience while visiting some of the Med’s most enticing destinations, you will also get to know a cruise line becoming increasingly relevant to the UK luxury cruise market. An opportunity any luxury agent cannot afford to miss.


How to enter

Just answer a few questions about Hapag-Lloyd Cruises and this incredible fam trip to be in with a chance of winning a spot. The TTG Luxury Journey on EUROPA 2 takes place from 19-24 September 2020* and includes flights to Palma and from Lisbon at the end of the trip.




Competition closes at midnight on 31 July.
