Russia & Baltic Sea Cruise and Tour

Depart for Europe

Your journey begins on your overnight flight to bustling Copenhagen. Kastrup Airport, one of Europe’s oldest, is located just off of Copenhagen, on the island of Amager.

Day 2

Arrive in Copenhagen, Denmark

Velkommen til København! The Danish capital was first established in the 10th century, and during your time in this vibrant city you’ll have the chance to learn about its storied history while enjoying the cutting-edge technology that it now embraces as a leading modern city. If you purchased airline tickets through YMT, a representative will welcome you at the airport and transport you to the hotel.

Day 3

Copenhagen City Tour and Embark on Norwegian Getaway (Departs at 5:00 PM)

After breakfast at the hotel, board the motor coach for a tour of this delightful city. Highlights include Nyhavn (or “New Harbor”), Copenhagen’s most scenic waterfront, canal and entertainment district. Built by King Christian V in the 17th century, Nyhavn is lined by brightly colored 17th and early 18th century townhouses and bars, cafes and restaurants, and the canal harbors several historical wooden ships. Another must-see is The Little Mermaid statue, located in the lovely Langelinie promenade. The Little Mermaid was cast in bronze in 1913, and depicts the beloved Hans Christian Andersen character perched on a rock in the water staring longingly at the shore. She has become one of Copenhagen’s most famous icons. This afternoon, head to port to board your floating home, the spectacular Norwegian Getaway. (B)

Day 4

Warnemünde (Berlin), Germany (7:00 AM - 10:00 PM)

Your first stop is Warnemünde, a German seaside village with broad sandy beaches and a proud nautical tradition clearly on display in its 19th century lighthouse. Founded as a small fishing village in the 13th century, Warnemünde now boasts a wonderful seaside promenade, the Alte Strom or “Old Channel,” full of cute shops and restaurants and absolutely perfect for strolling, beer-tasting, and people watching. Not to mention Warnemünde’s close proximity to Berlin—which you can see on a shore excursion (additional cost).

Day 5

At Sea

Day 6

Tallinn, Estonia (8:00 AM - 5:00 PM)

Estonia’s capital city is home to one of the best preserved medieval city centers in the world, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Town Tallinn offers visitors much to see. During your time here, we recommend visiting one of Tallinn’s 60 museums, catching some live folk music, and sampling some delicious marzipan!

Days 7 & 8

St. Petersburg, Russia (7:00 AM - 7:00 PM next day)

Spend 2 days at port in Russia’s second largest city. St. Petersburg was first settled in 1611 before being overtaken almost a century later by Peter the Great, who built it into a powerful seaport that would open Russia to trade with the rest of Europe. Modern St. Petersburg is generally viewed as Russia’s cultural heart—home to stunning buildings like the Winter Palace, Kazan Cathedral, and the breathtaking Hermitage Museum, founded in 1764 by Empress Catherine the Great, plus wonderful dining and shopping options.

DAY 8 OPTION: PANORAMIC ST.
PETERSBURG TOURDAY 8 OPTION: PANORAMIC ST. PETERSBURG TOUR:

From the comfort of your coach, enjoy cultural, historical and architectural landmarks abound in this dazzling capital city, founded by Peter the Great in 1703. Free time near Arts Square included! $95 p/p. Please add this option at time of booking.

Note: In St. Petersburg, "No-Visa Entry" is only for 72 hours and only for cruise ship passengers. A tour confirmation from a Russian travel company is needed to go ashore (which can be secured by booking an NCL shore excursion. The optional tour above qualifies as well). You are required to depart and return to the port with the NCL shore excursion tour, you do not have the option to stay in St. Petersburg and return to the ship on your own.

Day 9

Helsinki, Finland (7:00 AM - 4:00 PM)

Sail the Gulf of Finland overnight to Helsinki, Finland’s capital city. Finland is renowned for its impeccable design sense, and there is no better example of that keen national eye for detail than Helsinki. There is a stunning mix of old and new buildings, parks, promenades, and seaside boardwalks—all created with walkability and pedestrian enjoyment in mind.

Day 10

Nynäshamn (Stockholm), Sweden (7:00 AM - 7:00 PM)

Today’s port stop is Nynäshamn, Sweden’s favorite local getaway. The harbor is often full of seafaring Swedes in boats of all sizes, and the adorable waterfront restaurants and boutiques are a great vantage point to take it all in. Nynäshamn is not very far from Stockholm, Sweden’s bustling capital.

Day 11

At Sea

Day 12

Disembark in Copenhagen, Denmark (Arrives at 7:00 AM)

Take one last day to enjoy Copenhagen after an early morning disembarkation. We recommend circling back to your favorite sites to explore them in depth at your leisure. Before you leave, be sure to try rød pølse (red sausage) from one of the many hot dog stands. It’s Denmark’s favorite street food, and an inexpensive, delicious taste of what local life is like! (B)

Comfort Hotel Vesterbro or similar
