Explore the wonders of the Baltics on an exciting journey steeped in art, history and culture. With over 200 museums, magnificent architecture and world-renowned operas and ballet, there’s plenty to see and do during a 2-day stop in St. Petersburg. In Helsinki, explore the dramatic coastline, visit famous cathedrals or enjoy a sauna ⎯ a traditional Finnish pastime. Tour the picturesque town of Nynashamn for a glimpse of local life along the Baltic Sea. Then it’s on to Copenhagen, where canals and cobblestone streets wind past historic castles and modern delights.
Baltic Cities & St Petersburg Cruise
Day 1 Copenhagen, Denmark (EMBARK)
The capital of Denmark, Copenhagen, is filled with canals, cobbled squares and copper spires. But don't let the historic appearance fool you. This is also Scandinavia's most cosmopolitan city. Certainly you can relive medieval times in The Latin Quarter, but you can also enjoy some of Europe's finest shopping, museums, cafes and nightlife prior to your cruise around the Baltics.
Day 2 Berlin (Warnemünde), Germany
It's been more than two decades since the walls came down and Berlin became unified in many ways, including the pursuit of joy. Germany's capital city is a city that balances cosmopolitan chic with a liberal undercurrent of creativity and cool. Famous landmarks like the Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag fascinate, while the elegant Bavarian Quarter amazes.
Day 3 At Sea
Day 4 Tallinn, Estonia
The capital of Estonia impresses with its mix of medieval houses and very modern boutiques and café culture. Journey inside the ancient walls of Old Town to explore stunning Medieval landmarks like Toompea Castle and a 15th Century apothecary shop. Move up a couple centuries to experience Tsar Peter I's Kadriorg Palace, filled with art and surrounded by sculpted gardens and peaceful woodlands.
Day 5 St. Petersburg, Russia
Founded by Russian Tsar, Peter the Great, St. Petersburg has for centuries been the cultural centre of Russia, with its spectacular architecture, Tchaikovsky operas, and the famous Kirov ballet.
Day 6 St. Petersburg, Russia
St. Petersburg has undergone many changes over the decades, but "The Venice of the North" remains a dazzling cruise destination, a Russian city with a European flair, a city with more than 200 museums, and one of the largest English gardens in Europe.
Day 7 Helsinki, Finland
Welcome to Scandinavia's “White City of the North,” a city defined more by its people and Art Nouveau architecture than its chilly climate (from October to April). Helsinki is a classic sea-city, with a dramatic coastline coloured by bays and inlets. The city keeps its historical roots intact.
Day 8 Stockholm (Nynashamn), Sweden
When your cruise ship pulls into this small Swedish port, you'll be greeted by ferries transporting travellers to Gotland island. Nynashman hosts a harbour party each summer where sailors and travellers alike flock. The small and laidback town offers photographic opportunities from the surrounding scenic nature and of course, the Baltic Sea.
Day 9 At Sea
Day 10 Copenhagen, Denmark (DISEMBARK)
Sadly, we have come to the end of our cruise and you will disembark, perhaps to explore more of Copenhagen.
