Explore the natural sites and cities steeped in history of the Baltic Sea during this all-new 12-day cruise aboard Le Jacques-Cartier.
Your journey will start in the former capital of the tsars, Saint Petersburg. Architectural gems in the Baroque style, churches with domes so elaborate they seem otherworldly, palaces, gardens, canals, and the famous “perspectives” that criss-cross the city: at each street corner of St Petersburg, a new theatrical decor is revealed.
You will visit Tallinn and Visby, emblematic cities of the Hanseatic League, the large trading network that dominated the Baltic Sea for several centuries. Listed as UNESCO Heritage Sites, these once opulent cities still have remarkably well-preserved ramparts, public buildings, merchant houses and warehouses.
Your ship will also call at Helsinki. Located on a peninsula surrounded by almost 300 islands, the verdant capital of Finland will charm you with its Art Nouveau architecture.
You will make an original port of call in Ventspils. This dynamic harbour town is a city rich in history and a renowned Baltic Sea resort.
You will also discover Riga, capital of Latvia. A unique blend of different architectural styles, the old town will open itself up to you like the pages of a history book.
Then Le Jacques-Cartier will set sail to Stockholm, your disembarkation port.
