Europa 2 was the signature luxury cruise feature in our new-look Jan/Feb issue (see more at and the new-in-2013 ship is already being hailed as THE most luxurious vessel on the high seas anywhere.
Contributing editor Gary Buchanan highlighted all the many amenities and services aboard as "improving upon perfection," and the German line Hapag-Lloyd Cruises clearly have a unique and impressive product on their hands.
