DAY BY DAY ITINERARY
Copenhagen, DenmarkJuly 2, 2022 | Embarkation
The capital of Denmark, Copenhagen, is filled with canals, cobbled squares and copper spires. But don't let the historic appearance fool you. This is also Scandinavia's most cosmopolitan city. Certainly you can relive medieval times in The Latin Quarter, but you can also enjoy some of Europe's finest shopping, museums, cafes and night life prior to your cruise around the Baltics.
Berlin (Rostock), GermanyJuly 3, 2022
Rostock is the largest city in the north German state Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and the newest port addition to Norwegian's European destinations. Here you could enjoy a guided walk and explore the quaint Hanseatic city of Wismar, which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site or perhaps visit the fairytale Schwerin Castle.
Gdynia, PolandJuly 4, 2022
Stroll the beautiful waterfront of Gdynia before heading to nearby Gdansk, the largest city in northern Poland. For a taste of local life, walk along bustling Long Market lined with delicious cafes and unique boutiques. Explore the sites of historic Old Town, which was restored after being destroyed in World War II. Tour St. Mary’s Church – one of the world’s largest brick cathedrals – or visit the Maritime Museum for a glimpse into the past of this ancient port city.
Klaipeda, LithuaniaJuly 5, 2022
Lithuania's third largest city, Klaipeda has been in and out of the hands of the Russians, Swedes and Germans. Marvel at the impressive, and verbosely christened, St. Mergeles Marijos Taikos Karalienes Church tower and walk through Anika Square. Head to the pristine Baltic waters lapping at the broad sands of Smiltyne Beach. Or duck into the Clock Museum or Castle Museum.
Riga, LatviaJuly 5, 2022
As the largest city in the Baltic and the capital of Latvia, Riga offers something for everyone. From its fanciful cobblestone streets and Art Nouveau architecture to dozens of museums and a picturesque white-sand beach in nearby Jurmala, there's much to experience in this vibrant cosmopolitan city. Come explore what has been called the "Paris of the Baltics."
Helsinki, FinlandJuly 7, 2022
Welcome to Scandinavia's “White City of the North,” a city defined more by its people and Art Nouveau architecture than its chilly climate (from October to April). Helsinki is a classic sea-city, with a dramatic coastline coloured by bays and inlets. The city keeps its historical roots intact. Explore more of Helsinki on a European cruise!
St. Petersburg, RussiaJuly 8 - July 9, 2022 | Overnight stay
Founded by Russian Tsar, Peter the Great, St. Petersburg has for centuries been the cultural centre of Russia, with its spectacular architecture, Tchaikovsky operas, and the famous Kirov ballet. It has undergone many changes over the decades, but "The Venice of the North" remains a dazzling cruise destination, a Russian city with a European flair, a city with more than 200 museums, and one of the largest English gardens in Europe!
Tallinn, EstoniaJuly 10, 2022
The capital of Estonia impresses cruise guests with its mix of medieval houses and very modern boutiques and café culture. Journey inside the ancient walls of Old Town to explore stunning Medieval landmarks like Toompea Castle and a 15th Century apothecary shop. Move up a couple centuries to experience Tsar Peter I's Kadriorg Palace, filled with art and surrounded by sculpted gardens and peaceful woodlands.
Stockholm, SwedenJuly 11, 2022 | Disembarkation
Laced by an ingenious network of waterways and bridges strung between a freshwater lake and the sea, Stockholm is easily seen on foot or by waterway cruise. Its gabled old townhouses peer over cobblestone streets, while its magnificent 17th-century palace sits watching over the harbour.
