14 Night Cruise sailing from Southampton to Copenhagen onboard Norwegian Escape.
With an overnight in Amsterdam and St. Petersburg, you can explore even more on this sailing. See the best-preserved medieval city in Northern Europe in Tallinn, with the inner town still protected by an ancient wall. While Old Town is a medieval maze of Gothic spires and cobbled paths, the city centre is modern. St. Petersburg's colourful onion domes can be appreciated at the Spilled Blood Cathedral. And art lover or not, The Hermitage Museum is incredible, with over 3 million items. Since you're here overnight, take time to savour traditional Russian dishes like Beef Stroganoff or Chicken Kiev. Blinis, their version of crepes, are delicious topped with caviar. The White City of the North, Helsinki, is a walkable town that gets its nickname not from the winter weather but from its many buildings constructed from light-coloured granite. Built in 1868, the Uspenski Cathedral with its golden cupolas is the largest orthodox church in Western Europe. If you're wondering if you can drink the water, definitely yes. It comes from mountain springs via the world's longest water tunnel.
Highlights of this cruise:
Southampton (London), England
Protected from the frequent storms of the English Channel by the Isle of Wight, Southampton has survived a turbulent history to serve as a principal port of the United Kingdom today. Pay homage to one of the most famous ships to sail these shores at the Mayflower Memorial. Visit the stoic walls of Bargate and the Tudor House Museum.
Le Havre (Paris), France
Hop on a tour bus to the City of Light to experience the magic of Paris. Stroll down the Champs-Elysées as you nibble on a croissant. Take photos of beautiful Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower. Notre-Dame, the Louvre, Montmartre and all the other iconic places of Paris lie 120 miles up the Seine from the port of Le Havre. Or explore the charms of Le Havre, spend the day at Monet's Giverny or explore Rouen's Old Market Place, where Joan of Arc was burned in 1431.
Brussels / Bruges (Zeebrugge), Belgium
The ultimate European city, Brussels has tons of museums, fountains, gardens and great shopping. Stroll the Old Town area to see St. Hubert Arcades and its shops, as well as Butchers' Street with its plethora of restaurants and cafes and the Grand Place with its Baroque guild houses.
Affectionately known as the "Venice of the North," Amsterdam is actually situated below sea level and built entirely on stakes driven into the ground. The Anne Frank House, The Hague and a Delft Blue Pottery Factory are but a few of the sights that await your arrival.
Berlin (Warnemunde), Germany
It's been more than two decades since the walls came down and Berlin became unified in many ways, including the pursuit of joy. Germany's capital city is a city that balances cosmopolitan chic with a liberal undercurrent of creativity and cool. Famous landmarks like the Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag fascinate. The elegant Bavarian Quarter amazes.
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.
St. Petersburg, Russia
Founded by the 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!
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!
Stockholm (Nynashamn), Sweden
When your cruise ship pulls into this small Swedish port, you'll be greeted by ferries transporting travellers to Gotland island. Nynashman hosts a harbour party each summer where boaters and travellers alike flock. The small and laidback town offers picture-taking opportunties from the surrounding scenic nature and of course, the Baltic Sea.
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 nightlife prior to your cruise around the Baltics. Explore more of Copenhagen on a European cruise.
