Scenic cruising and city sightseeing make this German jaunt one to remember, with an abundance of attractions and highlights awaiting your discovery. On board Balmoral, experience two journeys along the Kiel Canal – only navigable by smaller ships – and revel in views of beautiful German countryside and scenery. In between, you visit Kiel for a chance to delve into the city’s extensive maritime and naval history, and Warnemunde, gateway to Berlin and its waterways, iconic sights and historic highlights.[ReadMore]

Elsewhere in Germany, you’ll have ample time in Hamburg, to visit attractions such as the Rathaus, towering St Nikolai Church, the International Maritime Museum and the busy dry docks, and take a boat tour of Alster Lake, while there’s also a day in Bremen. Here you could explore the city’s UNESCO-listed marketplace and admire its centuries-old architectural delights, learn about the history of the infamous U Boat bunker, or simply take a cruise along the picturesque River Weser.

Bringing the world closer

Our size advantage means we can take you to places that some of the larger cruise vessels simply can’t. We dock close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and can take you on scenic cruising adventures showcasing inspirational landscapes. Our itineraries are expertly crafted to make the most of this advantage.

Smaller but spacious

Aboard our smaller, friendlier ships you'll find there's plenty of room to stretch out by the pool, enjoy a drink and great conversation with like-minded guests, and make the most of your time away. Sailing with hundreds, not thousands, of others allows you to get ashore faster too, and make the most of each destination.
