Full Itinerary

Day One: Depart Hull

Board Astoria in Hull today, and settle in to your cabin as the ship prepares to set sail.

Day Two: At sea

Spend today relaxing, and getting to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers.

Day Three: Kiel Canal Transit

Relax as Astoria spends a day sailing through the Kiel Canal. This quiet waterway serves as a shortcut between the North Sea and the Baltic, saving over 250 miles of extra sailing around the coast of Denmark.

Day Four: Warnemunde

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 explore the city's highlights - from the Brandenburg Gate and the 1926 Olympic Stadium to Hitler's Bunker and Checkpoint Charlie.

Day Five: At sea

Relax on board as Astoria spends another day at sea.

Day Six: Tallinn

Today we'll arrive in beautiful Tallinn. Step back in time as you explore the enchanting Estonian capital and its perfectly preserved old town, winding cobblestone streets full of storybook houses, steepled churches and ancient buildings, all watched over by Toompea Castle.

Days Seven and Eight: St Petersburg

Astoria will spend two days at the docks of St Petersburg, one of the world's most startling and glorious cities, with its world-renowned Hermitage Museum, its wide canal-side boulevards and its modern cosmopolitan atmosphere. We'll have lots of time in the city, so don't miss our optional excursion to the Tsars' Summer Palace at Petrodvorets, the chance to explore the city's Haymarket, or the opportunity to see the opulence of the Mariinsky Theatre, home to the world-renowned Kirov Ballet.

Day Nine: Helsinki

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.

Day 10: Nynashamn

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.

Day 11: At sea

Spend another day at sea, as Astoria cruises back across the Baltic.

Day 12: Copenhagen

Stylish Copenhagen, home to the famous Tivoli Gardens and forever associated with Hans Christian Andersen, is a marvellous city. Join the optional shore excursion to discover the world famous Little Mermaid, the Royal Palace and the grand stores that line the famous shopping street, Stroget.

Days 13-14: At sea

Your final two days on board Astoria are at sea, reliving the memories of your Baltic cruise.

Day 15: Arrive Hull

Bid farewell to Astoria and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise.
