DAY 1: Your Door to Door service will transfer you to Southampton to embark Braemar on which we set sail in the evening.

 

Highlights of the cruise include:

  • Copenhagen, with its vibrant atmosphere, modern culture and beautiful architecture, it is one of Europe's oldest and most popular cities. The historic centre of Denmark’s capital, an 18th century rococo district, is home to the Royal Family’s Amalienborg Palace, Christiansborg Palace and Rosenborg Castle, surrounded by gardens and home to the crown jewels. The Little Mermaid sculpture at Langelinie Pier is a must-visit attraction too.

 

  • Nyhavn, Copenhagen’s 17th century waterfront and canal is home to a number of wooden ships and many brightly coloured 17th and 18th century townhouses that have been converted into bars and restaurants.

 

  • Helsinki, Finland's capital since 1812, built on a peninsula amid a cluster of islands is The Daughter of the Baltic. This striking seaside port is surrounded by uplifting natural landscapes that are easily accessible from each area of the city. The port also boasts a UNESCO-listed sea fortress just a short distance from the shore which is worth the short ferry journey to explore its historic walls and gates. Senate Square, one of Finland’s most photographed places, is home to fine examples of neoclassical architecture including unique designs from renowned architect Carl Ludvig Enge.

 

  • 2 days to explore St. Petersburg. The jewel in the Baltic crown and Russia's most European city, elegant St Petersburg was the imperial capital for two centuries and Tsar Peter the Great's 'Window on the West'. The sheer grandeur of the city and its revolutionary spirit never fail to impress. Founded in 1703 by Peter the Great and immortalised by the city's iconic Bronze Horseman statue, St Petersburg remains Russia's cultural centre. The Mariinsky Theatre hosts world-class opera and ballet and the State Russian Museum showcases a wide collection of superb Russian art. The Winter Palace, with over a thousand rooms is the most magnificent of six buildings that make up the Hermitage Museum. It is one of 125 museums and galleries including the imposing seafront Peterhof Royal Palace and Park.

 

  • Riga, Latvia. Set at the mouth of the River Daugava, the cultural centre of Riga has been an important centre for trade and finance over the centuries and boasts fine examples of architecture, museums and concert halls. The city’s modern urban structures blend seamlessly with medieval castles, churches and the wooden buildings of its medieval Old Town. The pedestrian-only Old Town, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has many shops and restaurants and is home to the bustling Livu Square.

 

  • Lubeck is one of the major ports of Germany Located on the River Trave. It was the former capital of the Hanseatic League and due to its extensive brick Gothic architecture and an array of wonderful gabled houses, stunning churches, vast towers and gilded steeples it is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

 

  • Travemünde is a delightful coastal suburb of Lübeck. With a beautiful beach, famous for its roofed wicker beach chairs and many cafes and restaurants, Travemünde is a great place to relax. Be sure to visit the borough’s lighthouse – the oldest on the German Baltic coast.

 

  • The Kiel Canal. Connecting the North Sea, at the mouth of the Elbe River, to the Baltic Sea at Holtenau, the Kiel Canal is one of the world’s busiest and most important shipping routes. Slicing a man-made path through the German countryside this 61-mile-long marvel of engineering allows vessels to avoid 250 nautical miles of sea sailing, ensuring a faster and safer passage through Europe. Sailing slowly along the canal presents an opportunity to take in gorgeous scenes of lushgreen countryside and a collection of interesting villages and towns flanking the still waters and marvel at several impressive bridges.
