Baltic Cruises

Destinations

Baltic Overview

Immerse yourself in one of the world’s most dynamic regions. With culture-rich cities, awe-inspiring architecture and fascinating history, you’ll be engrossed every step of the way.

Our Baltic cruises take you to the heart of some of northern Europe’s best cities. Discover Estonia’s medieval capital, Tallinn; the Art Nouveau buildings, cafés and welcoming locals of Helsinki; Riga’s stunning UNESCO-listed Old Town; and Copenhagen’s statue of the Little Mermaid, celebrating the tales of the city’s Hans Christian Andersen. 

Many of these cruises also include overnight calls in St. Petersburg and Stockholm, two magnificent destinations which are well worth an extended stay. 

The beautiful capital of Sweden owes much of its unique appeal to its setting on 14 islands at the beginning of an extensive archipelago stretching out into the Baltic; sailing into Stockholm is rewarding in itself. There’s an enticing blend of historic and modern, from the medieval alleyways of Gamla Stan – the Old Town – to trendy bars and designer boutiques.

St. Petersburg is renowned for its baroque palaces along with the spectacular art collection in The Hermitage, Catherine the Great’s former private residence. Choose from over 100 museums to explore by day, and by night perhaps opt for an evening at the ballet for a taste of the famous Russian art.

With so much variety in the architecture and history across this region, a Baltic cruise really makes for an inspiring and deeply cultural experience that is hugely fulfilling.

The only disappointing aspect is what seems a money pinching exercise relating to late booking.

The only disappointing aspect is what seems a money pinching exercise relating to late booking. The 'Anchor Fare' now attracts a fee if you want to select 1st or 2nd dining and no 'Ocean's' discount for on-board spend. I understand the majority bookings are repeat customers this has alienated me and perhaps others!

Thank you for taking the time to complete our on line customer feedback form. We are pleased that you enjoyed your recent Black Watch cruise. Bookings on an anchor fare have carried a dining supplement since being introduced in the Spring of 2013, and are a reflection of the saving made on the cruise fare itself.
Guests do have the option to book a Freedom Fare without these restrictions.
With kind regards

Product : Delete Visby and add Copenhagen - Visby is renown for being cancelled on trips due to ability to tender passengers safely.

Service rating : My wife and I rate Fred Olsen very highly for its food, entertainment and friendly atmosphere on it's ships. We particularly enjoyed a Caribbean cruise on the Braemar (our favourite) a couple of years ago.
Product : Very good but would have liked more time in St Petersburg at the possible expense of Warnemunde and or/ Visby. The trip thru the Kiel Canal was very interesting and was the primary reason for our booking.
