The long sunny days of a Baltic summer are legendary and the perfect time to witness the spectacle of colour and joy that the sun brings to this northern world which, bordered by diverse kingdoms and republics in a relatively contained area, is ideally suited to exploration by ship. Whether it be the grandeur of St Petersburg and its surrounding country estates, the fascinating Baltic states and their capitals with marvellously untouched Medieval quarters or the sheer delight of small Scandinavian ports with their unique architecture, the Baltic offers a real cornucopia of delights which are all accessible from the comfort of the 118-passenger MS Hebridean Sky.
With over thirty years of experience operating cruises in this region, we believe we have the most perfectly balanced cruise. Whilst not forsaking our old time favourites such as Tallinn and St Petersburg we also visit some charming smaller ports such as the town of Kragero in Norway, the Danish town of Nyborg and the capital of the Aland Islands, Mariehamn, all places which the larger cruise vessels are unable to access. Other hidden treasures we will discover along the way include the scenic island of Bornholm in Denmark, Visby on the Swedish island of Gotland with its beautifully preserved Medieval town, and the picturesque city of Kotka in Finland with its rich maritime heritage. Added to this, joining you on board will be a knowledgeable Guest Speaker who, together with the informative local guides, will add much to your experience and knowledge of this fascinating region.
