In its latest 2014 edition, the Berlitz Complete Guide to Cruising & Cruise Ships has awarded top honours to two Hapag-Lloyd ships, with the brand-new 516-passenger Europa 2 joining her fleetmate, the 408-berth Europa, as the only cruise ships in the world to be awarded Berlitz’s coveted 5-stars-plus rating. The Europa 2 makes the news once more with two Transatlantic crossings, her first to and from New York, in 2014-15. In November 2014, she will sail from Madeira to New York, then make some cruises from New York and Miami to the West Indies, while in April 2015, after circumnavigating South America and offering another West Indies cruise, she will sail from New York to Hamburg direct. And Voyage to Antiquity’s 350-berth Aegean Odyssey will be heading for East Africa and the Indian Ocean in 2014-15.
