Join Marco Polo in Tilbury ahead of her sailing this afternoon.
Marco Polo spends the day at sea, cruising via Brunsbuttel in northern Germany and into the Kiel Canal, passing through overnight.
Marco Polo's rare call in Germany's Wismar this afternoon brings an opportunity to discover this stunning, UNESCO-listed former Hanseatic port-city. See its beautifully restored Altstadt, its vast Markt square and its towering, red-brick Gothic cathedral. Wander through streets lined with beautiful gabled buildings and look out for the 'Swedish Heads' - colourful, moustachioed busts dotted around the city.
The Danish island of Bornholm is a hugely popular destination for Scandinavian visitors. The pretty port-town of Ronne, with its half-timbered and newer brick-built houses, its St Torv market place and its fascinating museum showcasing the island's history of grandfather-clock-making, is gateway to this holiday paradise. Enjoy stepping ashore to discover the town, and the countryside and beaches beyond.
A second Baltic island call is made on Swedish Gotland. The stunning, UNESCO-listed capital Visby is a medieval treasure chest of wooden cottages, cobbled streets and Gothic churches, encompassed by stout defensive walls. Inhabited since prehistoric times, Gotland boats some fascinating archaeological finds as well as the unique rauk eroded rock formations that dot the landscape.
A call at the once-secretive port of Klaipeda, Lithuania's third-largest city, affords an opportunity to explore the city's old town, with its half-timbered houses, cafes and gift shops. Venture further afield on optional shore excursions, perhaps to the vast sand dunes of the Curonian Spit National Park, or to the fascinating Zemaitija National Park, where a top-secret Soviet base once aimed missiles at the West.
The great maritime city of Gdansk is one of New Europe's most sparkling jewels, with its lovingly restored core a medieval masterpiece, and its bustling waterfront a hive of activity. Watched over by gigantic, red-brick St Mary's Church, as well as the towering cranes of the Gdansk - formerly Lenin - Shipyards, the city is the epitome of 21st Century, yet retains a sense of its tumultuous and colourful past.

Enjoy a leisurely two days on board as Marco Polo makes her return journey along the Kiel Canal.
