MS Europa 2 Voyage 1604 - February 13-27, 2016

Traditions and natural paradises, impressive temples and unspoilt idyllic beaches: enjoy the fascinating worlds of South East Asia with the EUROPA 2.

  • Borobudur**: one of the largest temple complexes in South East Asia.
  • On the trail of a unique culture: the land of the Toraja**.
  • The island of the gods: Bali.
  • Unforgettable encounters with orang utans in the Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary** on Borneo.
