This fantastic no-fly cruise takes in the best of the Baltic, with its incredible capital cities and awe-inspiring scenery, and includes overnight stops in Stockholm and St Petersburg.

Discover architectural masterpieces, iconic landmarks, outstanding natural beauty, and so much more. The first port of call is the beautiful Danish capital of Copenhagen, renowned for the colourful waterfront of Nyhaven, the famous Little Mermaid Statue, and pretty Tivoli Gardens. Continue to Latvia's capital, Riga, where Gothic spires dominate the skyline, before cruising the beautiful Stockholm Archipelago.

An extended stop in Stockholm allows ample time to explore the historic Gamla Stan district and watch the changing of the guard at the Royal Palace. The ship then sets sail for Tallinn, Estonia's fairytale capital, which has one of Europe's best-preserved Old Town districts.

One of the highlights of this incredible cruise is an overnight stop in St Petersburg, known as the 'Jewel in the Baltic Crown'. Golden domes and architectural wonders await as you glide into the city via the River Neva. Iconic attractions include the spectacular Peterhof Palace and the remarkable Hermitage. A visit to the Norwegian capital of Oslo is a fitting finale to this exploration of the Baltic.
