In their architecture and world-famous landmarks; their cultural and historical highlights; and their scenic, artistic and aesthetic delights, you’ll get to see and fully experience grandeur of captivating Baltic cities on this memorable journey of discovery. St Petersburg is a veritable treasure trove of iconic sites, and you are afforded two days of exploration and sightseeing in this Russian gem to create memories that will last a lifetime. Take in the must-visit sites of the ‘Jewel in the Baltic Crown’ at your leisure; you’ve ample time to marvel at the magnificence of wonders such as Peterhof Palace, the elaborate Church of the Savior on the Spilled Blood, Catherine Palace and legendary Hermitage Museum. You could even experience the magic of an evening at the Russian ballet, with a chance to meet the soloist after their performance, too.[ReadMore]

Your attraction-packed adventure also takes you to Scandinavia, where you’re in for rewarding explorations of two capital cities. Uncover the many highlights of Copenhagen, including the impressive Christiansborg and Amalienborg palaces, and 17th century Nyhavn waterfront district, with ease as Balmoral docks closer to the heart of the city; wander the historic Gamla Stan District and admire the Royal Palace in Stockholm; and experience scenic cruising through the rugged isles and islets of the beautiful Stockholm Archipelago. Your smaller ship guides you to Estonia too, for a chance to revel in the fairytale-esque charms of medieval castles, cathedrals and churches in Old Town Tallinn and meet one of the local bell ringers; and to Germany, where you’ll get to experience scenic cruising of the Kiel Canal and visit Warnemunde, to discover this seaside town’s many charms, or perhaps even tour to Berlin.

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.
