Asia and Australia

You’ll be able to watch the sea come to life in the Great Barrier Reef and enjoy plenty of koala and kangaroo sightings. This cruise sails during Christmas meaning instead of eating brussel sprouts and watching the Queen’s speech, your family could spend Christmas day snorkelling!

If you’re searching for a more Asian-inspired cruise throughout, check out Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ voyage to Japan: you’ll spend 16-days sailing from Tokyo to Hong Kong during the stunning cherry blossom season.

The Mediterranean
In the Western Med, see Europe’s largest active volcano as a family on a cruise from Rome which takes in some captivating Sicilian sights and the sparkling Adriatic Coast on the way to Venice.

Cruising the eastern Med is equally as rewarding. Set sail from Venice and call at Croatia, and Montenegro as you make your way to the Greek capital of Athens. Greece is the word.

Bottom line? Family holidays should be something special that you will all remember forever, and a cruise onboard MS EUROPA 2 will certainly live on in your hearts and minds.
