The Europa  is the world’s first “all-suite” ship, with staterooms that are never less than 290 sq ft, 80% having their own veranda assuring privacy and relaxation. She offers guests the most space per passenger, as well as one of the highest staff passenger ratios, with 280 staff members for a maximum of 408 guests. New to the Europa  since September 2010, Dieter Mueller became the first award-winning chef to open his own gourmet restaurant onboard the Europa. He is personally on board 70 days a year. Also, launched last month, the Europa’s “Baby Welcome Package” offers baby care products and baby food for passengers travelling with infants. The Europa will visit over 20 countries in 2012 on her international (bilingual English and German) itineraries.
