Cruising the Baltic Sea | July 7 - 16, 2020
Experience the cultural rebirth of the Baltic States and imperial treasures of St. Petersburg, Russia, while cruising aboard the specially-chartered, Five-Star, Le Dumont-D'Urville with only 92 staterooms and suites. One of the great cruise itineraries, this unique Baltic Sea voyage features five Baltic countries and six UNESCO World Heritage sites and is scheduled during the best time of year when you can experience the luminous “White Nights” of summer.
In the tradition of ancient Viking mariners and medieval merchants, set forth from Denmark’s sophisticated, innovative and exceptionally “green” capital city of Copenhagen to the cosmopolitan, royal Swedish capital of Stockholm. Tour the well-preserved medieval Old Town of Tallinn, Estonia; and spend two days docked in the heart of regal St. Petersburg, featuring visits to the acclaimed State Hermitage Museum, the Peter and Paul Fortress, and the spectacular czarist palaces at Petrodvorets and Pushkin.
Walk amid the stunning architecture of Helsinki, Finland, explore Visby, Sweden, and in Gdansk, Poland, hear from Lech Walesa, former President of Poland and leader of Poland's Solidarity Movement. Experience the splendors of Stockholm during the pre-cruise option, and on the Wonders of Norway post-cruise option, visit the vibrant city of Bergen, cruise through stunning fjord lands and enjoy one of the world’s most scenic train rides.
