Going on a cruise, improving your golf technique and playing on the most beautiful courses in Europe: guests can do all this on the golf cruises with the EUROPA 2 in 2014. Two PGA professionals will accompany the golf cruises and support the guests on board with training on the simulator, as well as with shore excursions to the most beautiful courses on the cruise route. Golfing for Kids & Teens is now available on the EUROPA 2, making the sport accessible to all the family.
With on-board equipment designed for children, ages 6-10 years old, can take their first swing at golf on a trial weekend with the golf pro. Cap’n Knopf will also be there – the Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ family cruise mascot – who will encourage children to take a swing at golf. For children who find golf fun, parents can also book personal hour-long sessions with the golf pro.
The EUROPA 2 is equipped with two golf simulators. One of these innovative simulators also features integrated video analysis, which accurately assesses every stroke in terms of speed, length, angle of flight and line of flight. This allows the PGA professionals to give guests detailed critiques for the next drive. In order to allow the guests to concentrate fully on their game during excursions to the most beautiful courses, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises offer a Golf & Cruise package with comprehensive services on the advertised golf cruises. This features the green fees for each course, accompaniment by a PGA professional ashore and on board, transfers, bag transport, golf club cleaning and use of the fitting station to make sure the golf clubs fit perfectly.
