Embark Magellan in Newcastle in time for her early evening sailing.
Magellan's first stop is the port city of Dundee. Discover its nautical history at Captain's Scott's RRS Discovery, which recounts the days when maritime adventures were far less luxurious.
Today is spent at sea, enjoying all of Magellan's many amenities and getting to know your fellow passengers.
Trendy Copenhagen is our next port of call. Spend some time strolling through the magical surroundings of the Tivoli, the Danish capital's famous pleasure gardens in the heart of the city. Don't miss the famous Little Mermaid, the Royal Palace or the dockside bars of colourful Nyhavn.
This morning Magellan arrives in Warnemunde, the gateway to the city of Rostock. From here, there's a chance to join an optional excursion to fascinating Berlin. Take in the city's rich history - see the iconic Brandenburg Gate, impressive Museum Island, the great 1926 Olympic Stadium and historic Checkpoint Charlie.
Spend another relaxing day at sea, enjoying life on board Magellan.
Magellan will call at Nynashamn, this morning, and you'll have the chance to head to Stockholm. Best explored on foot, the Swedish capital spans 14 islets and boasts a wonderful mix of historic sights and fine city parks. Its ancient heart is Gamla Stan, a beguiling labyrinth of cobbled streets, shops, cafes and restaurants.
Step ashore this morning to explore the wonderful port city of Helsinki, where the City Hall overlooks the fresh fish stalls and historic, covered Market Hall in Market Square. Stroll through Esplanade Park, and take in the panoramic views of the city and the sea beyond from the cathedral tower before we set sail once more.
Perhaps the highlight of the cruise, today you dock in magnificent, historic St Petersburg. Discover the incomparable Hermitage Museum, the Haymarket area of the city, where every corner seems ready to host a scene from a Dostoyevsky novel, and the Mariinsky Theatre, home to the world renowned Kirov Ballet. You'll also have the opportunity to visit the fabled Summer Palace at Petrodvorets.
Almost impossibly beautiful, the Estonian capital Tallinn, with its enchanting and virtually pristine Old Town, is one of Europe's most scenic cities. Discover this timeless gem, with its winding cobbled streets of storybook houses, spectacular steepled churches, ancient buildings and Toompea Castle.
Relax as Magellan spends another day at sea, heading west.
Settled for over 1000 years, Denmark's lively second city, Aalborg - the largest on the Jutland peninsula - is a delightful university seat boasting a cobbled old town of colourful shops, bars and cafes, all watched over by the imposing Gothic Domkirke cathedral, and is also home to a fascinating Viking Museum.
Look back of the memories of the last few days as Magellan cruises home.
Magellan arrives back in Newcastle at the end of a wonderful Baltic cruise.
