Cruise Description

14 Night Cruise sailing from Southampton roundtrip aboard Braemar.

Thanks to smaller-sized Braemar’s ability to cruise straight into the heart of five distinctive destinations in five different countries and bring you closer to an extensive list of extraordinary sights and attractions, you’ll experience the very best of the Baltic on this immersive, in-depth exploration of one of the world’s most captivating regions.

In Denmark, the highlights of the cosmopolitan capital will be within easy reach of your ship’s convenient docking location near to the centre of Copenhagen. The colourful, 17th century Nyhavn waterfront district, famous Little Mermaid statue and the legendary Tivoli Gardens – among the oldest amusement parks on earth – are among the delights found close-by. Don’t miss the chance to delve into Copenhagen’s rich Royal heritage too, at Rosenburg Castle and the impressive Christiansborg and Amalienborg palaces. Another enticing capital city will then await your exploration in Finland, with Braemar once again bringing you closer to the heart of it all in Helsinki. An abundance of attractions, including several insightful galleries and museums, the unique Kamppi Chapel of Silence and iconic Senate Square – one of Finland’s most photographed locations – via for your attention here, simply head ashore and explore to uncover your pick of the highlights. You can also delight in Helsinki’s stunning natural beauty and even treat yourself to an authentic Finnish sauna experience.

Your journey of Baltic city discovery continues in Russia, where your ship will sail the picturesque River Neva into stunning St Petersburg. Savouring views of traditional golden domes from your ship’s decks will whet your appetite for what to expect to discover during your overnight stay in the ‘Jewel in the Baltic’s Crown’, which boasts ‘must-visit’ landmarks such as Peterhof Palace, the Church of Our Saviour on the Spilled Blood and St. Isaacs Cathedral. A guided tour is the best way to see the city’s sights; don’t miss the Hermitage, the Faberge Museum and a chance to enjoy an evening at the Russian Ballet too. From Russia it’s on to Riga, Latvia’s enchanting capital. A wander around Riga’s awe-inspiring Old Town, with its striking art-nouveau architecture and medieval churches, is surely the icing on the cake; while the iconic Freedom Monument makes for an unmissable photo opportunity. 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.
