Cruise Description

11 Night Cruise sailing from Stockholm roundtrip aboard Boudicca.

This 11-night late-summer sojourn is a showcase of Scandinavia’s outstanding beauty and fascinating diversity, blending remote, lesser-known Baltic islands with captivating capital cities in Denmark and Sweden to create an all-encompassing adventure packed with rewards and memorable experiences.

En route to the Danish island of Bornholm, a day of scenic cruising along Germany’s picturesque, size-restricted Kiel Canal provides a perfect aperitif for your Baltic exploration. Once docked in Rønne – Bornholm’s largest town – you can take the day admire ochre-coloured half-timbered houses and pretty churches tucked away within charming cobbled streets; or alternatively, tour to the quaint fishing town of Gudhjem or the dramatic ruins of Hammershus Slot. Your island-hopping will then take you to Sweden and beautiful Gotland. The enchanting, UNESCO-listed medieval city of Visby, a living museum of centuries-old ruins, historic merchant houses and magnificent churches such as St Mary’s Cathedral, awaits your exploration. Be sure to visit Botan Visby Botanical Gardens during your time in the ‘City of Roses’, to see an impressive collection of flora that’s unique to Gotland.

Staying in Sweden, a call into Stockholm follows. With time to explore the Swedish capital in depth and entirely at your leisure, you could tick attractions such as the Skansen Open-air Museum and ABBA: The Museum, the historic Gamla Stan district and the Royal Palace – where you might be lucky enough to witness the changing of the guard – off your ‘must-visit’ list. The chance to see sights such as Strandvägen and the Opera House via the city’s many waterways on a serene boat tour is not-to-be-missed too. Unforgettable scenic cruising between the rugged islands and islets of the astonishing Stockholm Archipelago ends the Swedish leg of your journey, before Boudicca heads to Mariehamn, capital of the Finnish Åland archipelago. The Pommern ship museum, the maritime museum and the Kobba Klintar museum are particular highlights here, each offering a glimpse into Åland’s fascinating seafaring heritage. Returning to Denmark, a call into cultural Copenhagen concludes your late-summer escape. The delights of the Danish capital will be within easy reach of your ship’s berth, including the famous Little Mermaid statue, the pretty Nyhavn waterfront district and the impressive Christiansborg and Amalienborg palaces.

Highlights of this cruise:

Stockholm, Sweden
Sweden’s beautiful capital owes much of its appeal to its unique location. Spread across 14 islands at the head of a vast archipelago that stretches out into the Baltic, Stockholm’s swathe of parks, gardens and canals are a joy to discover via the city’s large network of bridges.

Founded over 700 years ago, the city’s harbour is the epitome of elegance and Stockholm’s history is writ large across its wide boulevards. Gamla Stan, Stockholm's charming Old Town district, is home to historic, ochre-coloured buildings and monuments. Dating back to the 13th century, the island is surrounded by water and offers beautiful waterfront views. Along its divine cobbled streets, the 13th century Storkyrkan Cathedral, the gorgeous Riddarholm Church and the Nobel Prize Museum can all be found and appreciated.

The choice of museums is extensive and includes the Vasa Maritime Museum, the unique Skansen Open Air Museum and of course, the ABBA Museum. The stunning Royal Palace and the Drottningholm Palace are also well worth seeing.

The vibrant Norrmalm and Östermalm districts in the city centre are ideal for those looking for a more modern cultural experience. Here, an array of upmarket shops sell goods from globally-known brands, and there are trendy cafes next to the Science and Technology Museum. Stockholm’s beauty and fashion sense are legendary, and its no-fuss functional, minimalistic approach to style provides the city with an unmistakable look.

Given its bountiful seas and farmland, Stockholm is a city of foodies and food trends. From açai breakfast bowls to truffle cheeseburgers, trying the cuisine is an exploration all of its own. Traditional Swedish cooking still holds its own, though: fried herring, meatballs and toast skagen remain menu classics.

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.

Visby, Sweden
Located on the Swedish island of Gotland, the UNESCO World Heritage Town of Visby is one of the most remarkable in Scandinavia. Known for its incredible scenic beauty and stunning historic sites, this former Hanseatic City has to be seen to be truly appreciated. The “City of Roses and Ruins” is like a living museum, and is renowned for its well-preserved medieval wall and defensive towers. Uncovering the 12th century Gunpowder Tower, Love Gate and Långa Lisa – the wall’s tallest tower, is highly recommended. Visby’s wonderful Old Town is home to 15 of Visby’s 17 medieval churches, and the Burmeister House – the town’s oldest merchant house – St. Mary’s Cathedral, and a beautiful botanical garden can also be found within its ancient walls. The main square, Stora Torget, has cobblestone streets lined with charming cafés and restaurants.
