IT'S NOT TOO LATE - GREAT SAVINGS ON REMAINING CABINS!*
A classic Baltic cruise
Discover medieval Tallinn, breathtaking St Petersburg, Scandinavian gems Helsinki and Stockholm, and Warnemunde - gateway to historic Rostock and unmistakable Berlin - on this fascinating autumn cruise.
Discover life on board Astoria
There's far more to life on board Astoria than we could possibly fit on one page. Click here to find out more about her fantastic facilities and welcoming atmosphere.
Board Astoria in Portsmouth today, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.
Spend today relaxing, and getting to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers.
After a day at sea Astoria will make her transit of the Kiel Canal, which connects the North Sea with the Baltic, saving over 250 miles' sailing around Denmark.
This morning Astoria arrives in Warnemunde. Discover the port's charming gabled houses and historic Neuer Markt, or join the optional excursion to Berlin to discover the city's highlights - from the Brandenburg Gate and the 1926 Olympic Stadium to Hitler's Bunker and Checkpoint Charlie.
Relax on board as Astoria spends another day at sea.
Today we'll arrive in Tallinn. Step back in time as you explore the enchanting Estonian capital with its perfectly preserved old town, winding cobblestone streets full of storybook houses, steepled churches and ancient buildings, all watched over by Toompea Castle.
Astoria will spend two days in St Petersburg, one of the world's most glorious cities. Explore its incomparable Hermitage Museum, stroll down its wide canal-side boulevards, and soak up the modern 'European' atmosphere. You'll have the chance to explore the city's Haymarket, familiar from scenes in Dostoyevsky's novels, to gaze in awe at the opulence of the Mariinsky Theatre, home to the world-renowned Kirov Ballet, and to visit the famous Summer Palace at Petrodvorets.
Days Seven and Eight
Step ashore to explore Helsinki, Finland's elegant capital. Explore the harbour-side fish market, take a stroll in nearby Esplanade Park, and don't miss the monumental neo-Classical buildings of stunning Senate Square, which have played the part of Moscow in many Cold War movies.
Astoria 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.
Spend another day relaxing on board as Astoria cruises back towards the German coast and the Kiel Canal.
This morning, Astoria will complete her passage back through the Kiel Canal. The rest of the day is spent at sea, relaxing and reliving the adventures of your Baltic islands cruise.
The Dutch maritime city of Rotterdam has much to offer. World-class museums, the stunning architecture of the Erasmus Bridge and the remarkable Markthal food market. Explore the lovingly preserved Old Harbour and stroll past nearby Delfshavn's step-gabled houses and ancient wharves.
Bid farewell to Astoria and all your fellow travellers today, as you disembark at the end of your Baltic cruise.
