Even more variety on EUROPA 2

  • New: expansion of the vegetarian menu
  • More than 80 diverse dishes
  • Partnership with top chef Michael Hoffmann

First-class vegetarian and vegan menus: working alongside EUROPA 2’s own chef de cuisine, top chef Michael Hoffmann has developed a menu exclusively for the 5-stars-plus* luxury ship, inspired by his own vegetarian cuisine. Thanks to high demand, the selection has now been expanded to give Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ guests an even wider choice of vegetarian dishes.

With flexible mealtimes, no fixed seating plans and plenty of tables for two, gastronomy on board the EUROPA 2 is all about variety and flexibility. There are seven restaurants to choose from, including the main Weltmeere restaurant, a sushi bar and three speciality restaurants offering French, Mediterranean and Asian cuisine. For those passengers who like to eat vegetarian food, each restaurant offers a special menu to reflect the restaurant’s culinary style. There is also a changing menu of vegetarian dishes served at lunchtime and in the evenings at the Yacht Club, the popular, buffet-style restaurant on board the luxury ship. These have been developed together with Michael Hoffmann. Best known as the former CEO and proprietor of the Michelin-starred Margaux restaurant in Berlin (from 2003 to 2014), Hoffmann set new standards in terms of the sustainability and ethics of cooking with his vegetarian cuisine. The high level of demand on board the EUROPA 2 is proof that his vegetarian dishes are very popular with guests. With more than 80 different dishes, cruise passengers can now enjoy even more variety on their culinary voyage of discovery.
