Picture-perfect corners of the Baltic

Bookended by calls to the picturesque Danish ports of Fredericia and Skagen, both on the Jutland peninsula, this springtime cruise features several less-visited Baltic ports. Calls at the picture-perfect islands of Swedish Gotland and Danish Bornholm, together with Lithuania’s former secret Cold War enclave Klaipéda and Gdynia for Poland’s great maritime city of Gdansk complete this fascinating cruise.  

Your cruise starts with maritime gem Rotterdam, before you have the opportunity to explore Berlin on an optional shore excursion from Warnemünde. Visits to the pretty town of Rønne, on the Danish island of Bornholm, and Lithuanian Klaipéda follow, before calls at Gdynia for Gdansk, with its lovingly restored medieval centre, and unspoilt Danish Skagen round off your wonderful voyage.

    The Dutch maritime city of Rotterdam is Marco Polo's first stop. Step ashore to see the stunning architecture of the Erasmus Bridge and the remarkable inverted 'U' of the Markthal food market. Browse the world-class museums, explore the lovingly preserved Old Harbour and stroll past nearby Delfshaven's step-gabled houses and ancient wharves.

  • Spend your first day at sea relaxing and getting to know your new, floating home.

  • Arrive: 0900hrs

    Depart: 1700hrs

    Originally built as a fortress, and very nearly designated the Danish capital, Fredericia is an elegant town that still retains a military air. From here you might be able to head across the bridge to Funen and visit the charming city of Odense, where the little yellow house where Hans Christian Andersen was born still stands on the cobbled corner of Hans Jensens Straede and Bangs Boder, in the heart of the old town.

  • Arrive: 0730hrs

    Depart: 2230hrs

    This morning Marco Polo arrives in Warnemünde. 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.

  • Arrive: 0800hrs

    Depart: 1700hrs

    The Danish island of Bornholm is a hugely popular destination for Scandinavian visitors. The pretty port-town of Rønne, with its traditional half-timbered and newer brick-built houses, its St Torv market place and its fascinating museum showcasing the island's history of grandfather-clock-making, is gateway to this holiday paradise. Enjoy stepping ashore to discover the town, and the countryside and beaches beyond.

  • Arrive: 0830hrs

    Depart: 1600hrs

    Your second Baltic island call is Swedish Gotland. The stunning, UNESCO-listed capital Visby is a medieval treasure chest of wooden cottages, cobbled streets and Gothic churches, encompassed by stout defensive walls. Inhabited since prehistoric times, Gotland boats some fascinating archaeological finds as well as the unique rauk – eroded rock formations that dot the landscape.

  • Arrive: 0830hrs

    Depart: 2000hrs

    A call at the once-secretive port of Klaipėda, Lithuania's third-largest city, affords an opportunity to explore the city's old town, with its half-timbered houses, cafés and gift shops. Venture further afield, on optional shore excursions, to the vast sand dunes of the Curonian Spit National Park or to the fascinating Zemaitija National Park, where a top-secret Soviet base once aimed missiles at the West.

  • Arrive: 0600hrs

    Depart: 1700hrs

    The historic city of Gdynia, once the most important port in Poland and now one of the country's most modern-looking cities, welcomes Marco Polo this morning. Part of the Tricity, alongside elegant Sopot and gorgeous Gdansk, Gdynia is set on the picturesque Bay of Gdansk, and provides the opportunity for some wonderful optional shore excursions.

  • Spend another day at sea, hopefully enjoying sunny skies, as Marco Polo cruises west across the Baltic.

  • Arrive: 0800hrs

    Depart: 1800hrs

    Skagen, at the remote, beautiful northern tip of Denmark’s Jutland is Marco Polo's final call.

It's home to several fascinating museums and galleries, and to a number of delightful crafts stores and cafés.

  • Make the most of your final day on board as Marco Polo cruises back towards London.
