The MS Europa is a cruise ship owned and operated by the German company Hapag-Lloyd. It is the 4th ship to be named Europa in the company's history. For nine years in row, the MS Europa was awarded the title "best cruise ship in the world" by Ward-Ranking and Berlitz[1][2] The previous Europa is currently sailing as the Bleu de France for CDF Croisières de France.





The Europa was designed as a sleek, streamlined luxury cruise ship. Her design is comparable to other luxury ships such as Silversea Cruises Silver Shadow. Europa was one of the first ships designed with an azipod propultion system, implemented to reduce vibration towards the stern of the ship[3]
