No matter how you like to spend your time ashore and at sea, something you can always look forward to on a luxury cruise is an exciting selection of shore excursions, and they don’t get more exciting than this up and coming one from ultra-luxury specialists Hapag-Lloyd.
There’s no doubt that wherever you go on an Asia cruise, it’s always going to be a journey to remember, but if you set sail on the line’s award-winning EUROPA2 in March/April this year on her Mumbai to Dubai voyage, you’ll have something extra-special to look forward to, namely the chance to soak up all the thrills and spills of one of Formula 1’s most exciting calendar events, the Bahrain Grand Prix.
On April 3, the world’s only 5 star-plus ship will arrive in Bahrain in time for guests to join a very special shore excursion to the desert state to witness the second of the 21 races which comprise the Formula 1 season. You’ll be able to watch the race unfold over 57 circuits on an unforgettable excursion which will last five-and-a-half hours and which is an absolute must for lovers of motor sports.
If your interests are more tipple than track, you’ll be pleased to know that there’s something else very special to look forward to on the cruise, that is the presence of expert winemaker Markus Schneider, who will be onboard throughout the cruise, comparing vintages and holding tastings and workshops throughout the voyage. When you consider that the ship carries over 19,000 bottles and a selection of around 450 different wines, you’ll soon understand the invaluable presence of Schneider on this cruise and be able to come to an informed decision on which bottle is the best to accompany dinner.
