Day 1 Copenhagen | Embark

Connected to the far eastern side of Sealand island, a few kilometres away from the Swedish coasts, Copenhagen showcases the high color of Scandinavian capitals. Discover the city's riches that weave through the canal networks through the historical districts of Christiansborg and Nyhavn. Many palaces provide an apercu of Danish history. Try out the smorebrod, a traditional dish composed of several kinds of smoked fish. 

Day 2 At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
During your day at sea, make the most of the many services and activities on board. Treat yourself to a moment of relaxation in the spa or stay in shape in the fitness center. Depending on the season, let yourself be tempted by the swimming pool or a spot of sunbathing. This day without a port of call will also be an opportunity to enjoy the conferences or shows proposed on board, to do some shopping in the boutique or to meet the on-board photographers in their dedicated space. As for lovers of the open sea, they will be able to visit the ship’s upper deck to admire the spectacle of the waves and perhaps be lucky enough to observe marine species. A truly enchanted interlude, combining comfort, rest and entertainment.

Day 3 Tallinn

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Opening onto the Baltic sea, to the far north of Estonia, the town of Tallin is sure to delight with the picturesque charm of its architecture. Meander through its little streets in the heart of the medieval center where its Gothic town hall has been standing since 1404. To get a taste of this town’s rich past, visit the Kiek in de Kök tower, the Orthodox Alexander Nevski cathedral, or Toompea castle. Try some of the local dishes, such as the smoked herring, roast elk and salmon with wild berries. 

Day 4-6 St. Petersburg

  • Ship
  • 3 Breakfasts, 3 Lunches, 3 Dinners
Founded in 1703 by Tsar Peter the Great, St. Petersburg has kept its original aura and is still one of the world’s most beautiful cities. It is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site. Bathed by the waters of the Neva, the “Venice of the North” boasts an impressive wealth of historic and artistic features. From the emblematic Nevsky Prospect, the city’s main thoroughfare, exploring the city by foot is a pleasure. With its baroque cathedrals, imperial palaces, suspended bridges, theaters and museums, St. Petersburg is a jewel of a city. To make the experience even quainter, take a boat ride along the canals though the ancient capital of the Czars.

Day 7 Helsinki

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Seated in the southern peninsula of Finland, Helsinki offers the buzz of a cosmopolitan city that has opted for both elegance and beauty. Explore its historical center where the soft hues of neoclassical buildings are juxtaposed with spectacular modern constructions. The bustling Kallio district is teeming with boutiques and restaurants where you can taste some local specialties like graavilohi - a sweet, marinated, aromatic salmon dish. Keskuspuisto park, a stone’s throw from the town center, is a good place to sit and unwind while watching locals go about their days.

Day 8 Visby, Gotland

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
This old Hanseatic city lies on the west coast of Gotland, a Swedish island in the Baltic sea. Pass through the spectacular Visby fortifications at Dalmans gate and visit the old town, a UNESCO World Heritage site. You’ll discover the grand Visby homes of rich merchants as well as the lovely low wooden houses in the little cobbled streets. Don’t miss Saint Mary’s cathedral with its octagonal steeples, as well as Powder tower along the fortifications. Make sure to stop in one of the rose-adorned cafés, where you can taste one of the island’s specialties, such as saffron pancakes with red fruit.

Day 9 Stockholm | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
The capital of Sweden occupies an archipelago in the east of the country at the junction of Mälar Lake and the Baltic sea. In Gamla stan, meaning “old town” in Swedish, stroll at your leisure in picturesque medieval streets until you reach the majestic Royal Palace. On the green island of Djurgården, you can visit several very different kinds of cultural centres: the Vasa museum is dedicated to a 17th century three-mast ship, the ecomuseum of Skansen presents traditional customs, and the ABBA museum is dedicated to the legendary pop group. For a fantastic, all-encompassing view of Stockholm, you can take a ride in SkyView, a glass-encased sphere gondola that takes you to the top of the world’s largest building, the Ericsson Globe, a Stockholm landmark.
