The Europa was one of the first commercial ships in the world to use twin azimuth thrusters with electric motors to drive the propellers, greatly reducing vibration for a more luxurious experience. Cruises are marketed primarily to well-heeled Germans and cosmopolitan North Americans. Most cruises are German-speaking but if 15 or more full-fare English-speaking guests book passage then the cruise will be bilingual.
