Cruising the Baltic Sea | May 23 – June 1, 2019
In the tradition of ancient Viking mariners and medieval merchants, set forth from the cosmopolitan, royal Swedish capital of Stockholm to Denmark’s sophisticated, innovative and exceptionally “green” capital city of Copenhagen. 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 Denmark’s idyllic island of Bornholm, and enjoy traditional Danish delicacies in the picturesque harbor town of Gudjhem. 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.
Experience the cultural rebirth of the Baltic States and imperial treasures of St. Petersburg, Russia, while cruising aboard the specially-chartered, Five-Star, all-suite Star Breeze, featuring just 106 ocean-view 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.
