Hapag-Lloyd adds more Canary Islands cruises for Europa 2

Europa 2's Canary Islands cruises will continue in February and March
Europa 2 will continue its successful Canary Islands operation beyond February.

Hapag-Lloyd Cruises confirmed another four cruises in the archipelago in February and March.

The first, Feb. 27 to March 6, will take the ship from Tenerife to Gran Canaria, visiting all the archipelago's main islands, and featuring the IN2BALANCE format highlighting sports, wellness and nutrition. Ports include San Sebastian (La Gomera), Santa Cruz de La Palma (La Palma), Puerto de la Estaca (El Hierro), Arrecife (Lanzarote), Puerto del Rosario (Fuerteventura) and Las Palmas (Gran Canaria).

Three subsequent seven-day cruises will take Europa 2 from Gran Canaria to La Gomera, La Palma, Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and back.

The newly announced sailings are open to book at the starting price of €2,990, not including air.

Health protocols

Europa 2's passenger capacity will be capped at 300, which results in a one to one crew to passenger ratio. The ship's strict hygiene protocols have been certified by SGS Institut Fresenius. In one of the service adaptations, passengers can order meals served in their suite and dine on the balcony.

Germany sets no new cruise rules

Tuesday's talks between Chancellor Angela Merkel and the prime ministers of Germany's federal states did not implement any changes that affect the operations of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises and TUI Cruises in the Canary Islands.

However, it was decided to continue the country's lockdown until Feb. 14, with a number of tightened restrictions.
