Europa 2 to Offer South Seas Cruise With Olympic Champion Maria Höfl-Riesch

europa 2When the Europa 2 sets sail to the South Sea islands in November and December this year, Olympic champion Maria Höfl-Riesch will be on board to train one-on-one with guests. Höfl-Riesch has developed the BE.YOU. fitness concept exclusively for this Hapag-Lloyd Cruises luxury ship. Top chef Michael Hoffmann is also on board.

The Europa 2 begins its journey along the Panama Canal, before turning towards French Polynesia. The holistic BE.YOU. fitness concept starts with an analysis of personal physical performance and is adapted individually to the results. The South Sea winter 2016 cruise is one of the chosen routes when Höfl-Riesch will guide training sessions personally. The sporting icon will also hold talks on the topics of fitness and motivation.

Renowned chef Michael Hoffmann will also be joining guests on board. Best known as the former CEO and proprietor of the restaurant Margaux in Berlin (2003 – 2014), Hoffmann specializes in vegetarian cuisine. On the route from Colon to Tahiti, Hoffmann will host a culinary school to offer guests an exclusive insight into his concepts, while presenting them with the opportunity to prepare dishes with him. Michael Hoffmann also developed a vegetarian menu for the ship.
