Cruise Description

13 Night Cruise sailing from Southampton roundtrip aboard Braemar.

On this immersive exploration of the Baltic you’ll experience the very best of this captivating region, as Braemar takes you closer to the heart of five diverse, distinctly different destinations in Denmark, Finland, Russia and Germany to uncover an extensive list of extraordinary sights and attractions.

In Copenhagen, a whole host of highlights will be within easy reach of your smaller ship’s convenient docking location near the centre of the cosmopolitan Danish capital. Simply head ashore and explore; the iconic Little Mermaid statue, pretty Nyhavn waterfront district and the world-famous Tivoli Gardens are just a few of delights close-by. Don’t miss the impressive Amalienborg and Christiansborg palaces, with their rich Royal heritage, too. Then it’s on to Finland for a day in another enticing capital, Helsinki. This vibrant seaside city is easily explored on foot and, with Braemar once again bringing you closer to the heart of the action, your day here is sure to be rewarding. You can head to iconic Senate Square, the centrepiece of Helsinki; admire the collection of ornate art-nouveau architecture; take your pick of fantastic galleries and museums; and visit the intriguing ‘Chapel of Silence’. You can even treat yourself to an authentic Finnish sauna experience.

Your unforgettable Baltic exploration continues in Russia, with your ship sailing into stunning St Petersburg via the picturesque River Neva. The sight of legendary golden domes and magnificent architecture will offer a taste of what to expect during your overnight stay in the ‘Jewel in the Baltic’s Crown’. Once docked, a fascinating guided tour is the best way to take-in the city’s ‘must-visit’ landmarks, such as Peterhof Palace and the Church of Our Saviour on the Spilled Blood. You could stop-by the remarkable Hermitage; savour the sight of St. Isaacs Cathedral; and even enjoy a magical evening at the Russian ballet, too. From Russia you’ll return to Denmark and the beautiful island of Bornholm. Here you’ll have a day to explore the charming cobbled streets of Rønne, with it’s half-timbered houses and pretty churches; or alternatively, tour to the quaint fishing town of Gudhjem or the dramatic ruins of Hammershus Slot. The fifth and final Baltic gem on your itinerary is Travemünde, where Braemar docks mere steps away traditional German shops, markets and cafés. Enjoy a relaxing day here, or perhaps take a tour to UNESCO-listed Lübeck, before embarking on memorable cruise of the size-restricted Kiel Canal.

Highlights of this cruise:

Copenhagen, Denmark
With its vibrant atmosphere, modern culture and beautiful architecture, Copenhagen is the essence of Scandinavian cool. One of Europe's oldest and most popular cities, Copenhagen is also one of the cleanest and most cosmopolitan. Its narrow streets are always busy with welcoming locals and are lined with colourful cafes, bars, shops and places to eat. Its bridges ring with cycling commuters and the pristine waterways make visiting this city a wonderful experience.

The historic centre of Denmark’s capital has Frederiksstaden, an 18th-century rococo district, home to the royal family’s Amalienborg Palace, the Christiansborg Palace and the Renaissance-era Rosenborg Castle, surrounded by gardens and home to the crown jewels. Other must-see attractions include The Little Mermaid sculpture at Langelinje Pier, and the 16th century Kronborg Castle - aka Elsinore in Shakespeare's Hamlet.

Nyhavn – Copenhagen’s 17th century waterfront and canal – is home to a number of wooden ships and many brightly coloured 17th and 18th century townhouses that have been converted into bars and restaurants.

Helsinki, Finland
Finland's capital since 1812, built on a peninsula amid a cluster of islands, stately Helsinki is The Daughter of the Baltic.This striking seaside port is surrounded by uplifting natural landscapes that are easily accessible from each area of the city. The opportunities to get out and about includes boating around the archipelago islands, hiking Helsinki’s forests or strolling its beaches, smart parks and gardens.

The port also boasts a UNESCO-listed sea fortress just a short distance from the shore, which is worth the short ferry journey to explore its historic walls and gates.

Senate Square, one of Finland’s most photographed places, is home to fine examples of neoclassical architecture, including unique designs from renowned architect, Carl Ludvig Engel. Other architectural delights include the Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, the imposing concert hall, Musiikkitalo, and the Temppeliaukio, an astonishing rock-carved church. Helsinki's stunning train station built in 1919, also demands discovery.

Finnish cuisine can be found across the city, from the historic kauppahalli (covered market) to popular, creative bistros. Locally-sourced reindeer, elk, bear, Arctic char and snow grouse, often find their way onto the menu.

Travemünde, Germany
Beautiful and historic Travemünde is a short journey from the centre of this magnificent Lübeck, the former capital of the Hanseatic League.

Travemünde is a coastal suburb of Lübeck - a magnificent UNESCO-listed town steeped in history and former capital of the Hanseatic League. Home to many wealthy merchants during the Hanseatic era, an array of wonderful gabled houses, stunning churches and public buildings with huge gates, vast towers and gilded steeples were built in Lübeck. These monuments of a by-gone era have to be seen to be believed and all are within easy reach of Travemünde.

If you wish to stay in Travemünde to see what this delightful coastal resort has to offer, you won’t be disappointed. An appealing tourist attraction in its own right, Travemünde is more than just a gateway to Lübeck. With a beautiful beach – famous for its roofed wicker beach chairs and many cafes and restaurants, Travemünde is a great place to relax. Be sure to visit the borough’s lighthouse – the oldest on the German Baltic coast.
