Island Ports and Historic Cities

Beginning with a call in Aberdeen, the Granite City of, this autumn cruise from Newcastle gives you the chance to explore some rarely visited Baltic ports, including two picture-book Scandinavian islands, Klaipéda Lithuania’s third-largest city and Poland’s great maritime city, Gdansk.

Rest and relax on board Marco Polo, as she cruises, first, to Aberdeen, before crossing the North Sea to the delightful Danish capital Copenhagen. Here you might step ashore to see the Royal Palace and the famous harbour-side Little Mermaid, browse the elegant shops and stores along Stroget or enjoy a drink in a Nyhavn bar. In Warnemünde you'll have time to visit Rostock, seat of northern Europe’s oldest university, and have the chance to take an optional excursion to the German capital, Berlin. Two idyllic isles follow. Wander the pretty streets past half-timbered houses around Ronne's St Torv market on Danish Bornholm, and see the wooden cottages, cobbled streets and Gothic churches that shelter behind Visby's city walls on Swedish Gotland. Klaipéda offers up opportunities to explore its unspoilt old town or venture further afield on shore excursions, before elegant Gdansk, on its beautiful bay rounds off your autumn Baltic cruise.
