You have the choice of two shore excursions. A tour of the city includes all the major sights such as the Little Mermaid, Amalienborg Palace and the colourful Nyhavn district. A shorter tour covers the Amelienborg Palace, the Kongons Nytorv Square and the old fish market and more.

The next day, you will arrive at Warnemunde where you can go ashore and head by train to Berlin, the German capital known for its internationalism and tolerance, lively nightlife, its many cafés, clubs, and bars, street art, and numerous museums, palaces, and other sites of historic interest. There is a choice of three shore excursions. The Best of Berlin covers 10 major highlights. The Panoramic Berlin and Concentration Camp includes a tour of the city and a visit to the former Nazi concentration camp Sachsenhausen. The third is a combination of a Berlin city tour and a visit to the interesting city of Potsdam.

Berlin is followed by a full day at sea before arriving the following day at Tallinn in Estonia. Probably the most fascinating part of the city is the medieval old town with its twisting cobblestone lanes and iron street lamps, Gothic spires and medieval markets. However, there are many cafes, restaurants and boutiques if you are looking for a mix of historic ambience and cutting-edge culture that defines Tallinn, Here you have the opportunity to have a medieval experience touring the old town of Tallinn followed by a concert of medieval music. Or you can enjoy a walking tour of the city which includes a visit to a market and an arts and craft centre. Another tour takes you through the picturesque countryside to one of Estonia’s oldest towns, Rakvere with its interesting museum and 13th Century castle.

The following day, arrive in St. Petersburg where the ship docks for 2 nights. Known as the cultural capital of Russia, St. Petersburg is a beautiful city offering a blend of European architecture and Russian history. Situated on the eastern tip of the Baltic Sea, St. Petersburg is Russia’s second largest city, and has Neva River running through its centre. Here, the choice of shore excursions include a 2-day extended tour of St. Petersburg which visits the renowned Hermitage Museum, the Peter and Paul Fortress among other highlights and an out of town excursion to Catherine’s Palace in nearby Pushkin. You can also have a tour to just Catherine’s Palace followed by the Hermitage or a visit to Peterhof, a palace built for the Czar, Peter the Great, with its gardens and fountains. Your second day in St. Petersburg is free to explore the city on your own.

The ship then sails on to Helsinki in Finland. There are many major sights to enjoy in Helsinki. There is the popular with locals, Esplanade Park in the heart of the city and Helsinki Cathedral is a beautiful and historically significant Evangelical Lutheran church. Senate Square dominated by four buildings designed by Carl Ludvig Engel shows off its Nordic architecture with the Cathedral, the Government Palace, the main building of the University of Helsinki and the National Library. Not to be missed is the Sibelius Monument in Sibelius Park which resembles organ pipes with a bust of the composer on one side. Here you can have a choice of three shore excursions. One takes in the city’s highlights which include Senate Square, the Olympic Stadium, Sibelius Monument, Tempelliaukio Church and other historic landmarks. Another takes in many of the city’s major attractions plus a visit to the Seurasaari open-air museum with its portrayal of 400 years of Finnish life. Or you can combine a tour which is by boat and on land sailing through islands full of parks and gardens

The next day brings you to Stockholm in Sweden. The city is spread over 14 islands connected by 50 bridges on the south east coast of Sweden. It combines classical and modern architecture reflected in many of its interesting buildings. It is a city rich in culture and history. You can take a tour covering Stockholm’s major sights which will also visit the remarkable Vasa Museum. Another tour covers the old town of Gamla Stan and the Royal Palace plus the fascinating Vasa museum.

Stockholm is followed by another day at sea before arriving back in Copenhagen. If you didn’t have the opportunity on the last visit, you can take the tour of the city which includes all the major sights such as the Little Mermaid, Amalienborg Palace and the colourful Nyhavn district.
