The illustrations released last week for Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ Europa 2 show a vessel that will be decorated in the fashion of the former “ships of state,” the majestic ocean liners that used to ply the North Atlantic.  The French restaurant Tarragon (above) is a stunning room, reminiscent of an earlier era of ocean liner design. And the ship’s Elements Asian restaurantbrings back memories of the Cathay Lounge on Canadian Pacific’s Empress of Britain of 1931 (see our last post below) .  Elsewhere, Princess Cruises will use its Australian-based Sun Princess to run a three-month cruise season in Japan next year. And Azamara Club Cruises leaves no room for a press looking for bad news in its exemplary handling of the fire on board Azamara Quest last week.
