The best way in which you can support the EUROPA and keep her sailing around the world is by spreading the word about her voyages. By telling your story about your voyage you can serve as a source of inspiration for other to join the adventure. We are very interested in your review, either good or bad, what we can do to improve our sailing voyages or what you liked best on your voyage

My congratulations to Captain Claus, his dog Sirius & dedicated highly professional crew for imparting & allowing us to share their knowledge of seamanship & know how in sailing Europa in what for me must be the ultimate ocean experience..The importance of participation was quickly understood. Don't hesitate to grab this amazing opportunity and feel what its like to be part of the crew and what an ocean voyage can offer on such a remarkable vessel as Europa & even if you have never sailed before don't worry go for it! The crew's ability in teaching/demonstrating the many numerous skills needed in handling a 3 masted bark including safety drills were very well presented as were the many lectures given by Europa's crew. The magnificence of Europa is spellbinding. A piece of living maritime history! The food was superb as was the welcoming we received from the galley staff. My best wishes to Europa and her crew.

Voyage Crew

The voyage was an experience few have or will ever have a chance to embrace. Doing such a long voyage brings so much more time to absorb the spirit of open ocean tall ship sailing as close as one can get historically. My only reason for not giving a Five is because on occasion, I felt like we the voyage crew weren't informed like the permanent crew, which lead to rumors and not feeling like part of the team. The captain sensed this and started to post weather and location info and also provided more insights during our 2- O'clocky, which made us feel more connected.

I MADE ALL THE TRIP USING CELESTAL NAVIGATION/ I WAS DESAPOINTED THAT NOBODY AMONG THE TRAINNIES WAS INTERESTED ABOUT THIS NAVAGATION I CANNOT UNDERSTAND, WHEN SAILING O/B A 108 YEARS OLD 3 MASTS SHIP NOT INTERESTED BY THE TECNICS OF NAVIGATION THEY USED AT THAT TIME

Stellar in every way-remarkable crew and ship

This trip hits you very hard in an emotional way. You may think that you understand what you are going through and seeing while you are on the trip -but that is not the case. In the weeks and months after the being on the Bark Europa you begin to fully realize that this kind of experience was unique to the point that it will probably not be duplicated ever again in your global travels. It is an over the top experience. I went in thinking the Bark was the means to an end (seeing Antarctica). It turns out that that sailing through the Drake and the overall ship life was at least 50% of the experience. I doubt that the folks on the 300 person NATGEO cruise ship feel the same way.
