In this post, we’re focused on Europa 2’s beautiful decks, particularly the Sun Deck and Pool Deck, with its wrap-around promenade. You’ll find plenty of room to lounge, in the sun or in shade, by the pool or sitting in my favorite spot, aft, as you watch the wake wash away.
To get a feel for being on deck, check out 10 photos in our Photo Slideshow featuring Europa 2’s Exterior Decks.
The slideshow should work well on your mobile devices (provided that you have sufficient bandwidth), so just swipe a photo to advance to the next one. Please contact me if you have trouble or view on Flickr instead.

Europa 2 was constructed at the STX Europe in St. Nazaire, France. French shipyard workers endured 29,120 architectural drawings. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises' executives confessed that the Germans can be somewhat meticulous when it comes to details. © 2013 Ralph Grizzle
