Golf cruises with the EUROPA 2

Golf has its great moments. And then there are instances of perfection. By the time the EUROPA 2 has brought you to the most outstanding courses and you have teed off over the magnificent fairways towards the greens, you will be sure to know the difference.

Combine your favourite sport with what is perhaps the most beautiful way to travel. On the EUROPA 2, you can optimise your game with professional support and the latest technology. Two state-of-the-art golf simulators have a large selection of worldwide and renowned virtual championship courses and enable the quickest possible progress – in direct combination with an integrated video analysis. For this is the first time that a realistic learning situation, such as you would come across on land, has been transferred to a cruise ship.

Play golf à la carte to suit your own personal wishes or visit some of the most appealing courses in the world on our Golf & Cruise voyages: a PGA golf professional* will be available on every cruise to provide practical and theoretical guidance – standing at your side with a wealth of experience. The on-board travel concierge** or the specialists on shore before your cruise will book your game times and organise your transfers to and from the golf courses. So you can concentrate completely on your game and improve your handicap in peace and quiet – and in heavenly surroundings.

Golf Package - Exclusive partnership for your handicap

Golf & Cruise voyages offer passionate golfers more amenities: in particular, daily coaching by golf professionals from the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) of Germany and renowned guest professionals – completely exclusive to Hapag-Lloyd Cruise ships. With a professional and friendly manner, these professionals will accompany you on your round. Interesting lectures are held in the separate on-board golf area and you can improve your game with individual training at the golf simulator and by using video analysis. Alongside such exclusive, first-class support, there are even more services included in the extensive golf package. From shoe shining, golf club cleaning and green fees to transfers between the ship and the golf course, everything is perfectly organised for an outstanding tee off. The only thing to watch out for: being too distracted during your game by the magnificent natural landscape and the breathtaking view of the ocean, as you make your way over the fairways. Easier said than done.

Information and additional Terms and Conditions of Travel for Golf & Cruise

General information

  • Our Golf & Cruise programme is subject to modifications, if tournaments are being staged at specific golf clubs.
  • Golf & Cruise voyages enable all golfers with a DGV (or equivalent) handicap of 36 or better to play courses right around the globe.
  • Additional courses can only be booked in connection with the Golf & Cruise package.
  • Reservation of e-carts is subject to local availability and cannot always be guaranteed. You may therefore have to play/walk courses with a trolley in tow, and some courses may even be undulating. Please take this into account when planning/booking your Golf & Cruise package.
  • The rules for taking golf equipment with you as hold luggage vary from airline to airline. You will find the relevant information in your travel documents, which you will receive approximately four weeks prior to departure.
  • Specific golf reservations can be made upon request. "Golf à la carte" includes reservation of requested teeing-off times (handling fee of EUR 20 per course) plus transfers and guides. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises is only an intermediary – if you cancel, any golf-related goods and services already paid for will not be refunded. Cancellation terms as per Item 11 of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ Terms & Conditions of Travel apply to transfers/guides.
  • Minimum number of participants: 12 people**

Additional Terms & Conditions of Travel applying to Golf & Cruise Voyages
Travel Cancellation

Item 11a) of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ Terms & Conditions of Travel apply to cancellation of basic packages and additional courses prior to departure. A flat-rate fee of 95 % of the basic package and additional course price is payable in the event of cancellation post-departure or of a no-show. The traveller is entitled to demonstrate to Hapag-Lloyd Cruises that no loss has been incurred or that this loss is substantially less than the flat-rate fee. This rule also applies to cancellation due to illness. Fees will not be refunded if play has to be abandoned due to weather conditions. Separate cancellation of specific courses included in the basic package is not feasible.

** If less than the required minimum number of participants makes a firm booking, the golf package will be cancelled no later than six weeks prior to departure.
