Discover the World
Combine a relaxed Baltic cruise, enjoying the crystal-clear light for which those waters are famous, with calls at some of Russia, Scandinavia and Northern Europe's most enchanting and unexpected ports.
Ever-popular and almost always a feature of cruises around the Baltic Sea, the three Scandinavian capitals - relaxed, fun-loving Copenhagen, elegant Helsinki and friendly, outdoorsy Stockholm - are always delightful. As are Estonia's picture-book capital, Tallinn, and Russia's glorious "Venice of the North", St Petersburg.
Away from the opulent palaces, onion-domed churches, boulevards and waterways of these wonderful, well-known cities, a cruise around the Baltic Sea might also offer you the chance to explore the less-visited islands of Bornholm and Gotland, or even once-secret Cold War ports like Klaipeda. Make your way to Odense, the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen. Walk through Riga to see some of the best-preserved Art Nouveau architecture in the world, the Dutch-influenced House of the Blackheads, Riga Castle and the city's two grand cathedrals. Admire the brightly coloured buildings along Gdansk's beautiful waterfront, and perhaps make your way inland from Rostock or Warnemunde to magnificent, reunified Berlin. Cruise through the Skagerrak and the scattered islands of the Danish archipelago, or pass through the placid waters of the Kiel Canal, which links the North Sea to the Baltic.
Wherever your Baltic cruise takes you, you're sure to uncover a wealth of colourful history, spectacular architecture, unforgettable sights and wonderful adventures.
