Orientation tour of Copenhagen, a fairytale city lined with pristine parks and Renaissance palaces. We enjoy a city tour and view Christiansborg Palace and the Little Mermaid. We later embark the Norwegian Getaway where we enjoy lunch before we sail this evening. Overnight: Cruise Ship (Breakfast, Dinner)
Dock in Warnemunde, Germany, with the opportunity to take an optional tour to historic Berlin. 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. The elegant Bavarian Quarter amazes. Overnight: Cruise Ship (Breakfast, Dinner)
Morning arrival in Tallinn, Estonia. The capital of Estonia entrances cruise guests with its mix of medieval houses and very modern boutiques and cafe 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. Overnight: Cruise Ship (Breakfast, Dinner)
DAY 7 & 8
St. Petersburg, Russia
Spend two days in St. Petersburg, built by Peter the Great. Here you will find the Summer Palace, the Peter and Paul Fortress, and the magnificent rooms of the Hermitage Museum. Founded by the Russian Tsar, Peter the Great, St. Petersburg has for centuries been the cultural center of Russia, with its spectacular architecture, Tchaikovsky operas and the famous Kirov ballet. It 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! Overnight: Cruise Ship (Breakfast, Dinner)
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 colored by bays and inlets. The city keeps its historical roots intact. Helsinki is a fusion of romantic, baroque, neo-classical, and ultra-modern architecture. Chance to visit the great Uspenski Cathedral and the unusual Tempeliaukio church, carved out of rock. Overnight: Cruise Ship (Breakfast, Dinner)
Laced by an ingenious network of waterways and bridges strung between a freshwater lake and the sea, Stockholm is easily seen on foot or by waterway cruise. Its gabled old townhouses peer over cobblestone streets, while its magnificent 17th-century palace sits watching over the harbor. While we are here, we will visit the Vasa Museum. This museum holds the only (almost) fully intact 17th century ship that has ever been salvaged, a 64-gun warship Vasa that sank on her maiden voyage in 1628. This beautiful ship is adorned with hundreds of wooden sculptures, a truly unique treasure. Overnight: Cruise Ship (Breakfast, Dinner)
