The Baltic Sea allows travelers to visit a range of Scandinavian and Baltic countries.
From the fairytale castles of Copenhagen to the gilded palaces of St. Petersburg, Scandinavia and Baltic Russia cruise ports reflect over two millennia of history. The memories of Teutonic knights and Hanseatic merchant kings and czars come alive through a montage of architectural and cultural achievements.
Baltic cruises really do encompass a huge variety of cultures and history.
While many cruises just operate within the Baltic some also include a visit to the Norwegian Fjords
The region is well serviced by the major cruise lines so cruise choice here could well be determined by price and type.
Cruises that originate in the Baltic - primarily from Copenhagen and Stockholm - tend to be 7 nights long, while cruises that start in the UK or Europe - mainly from Southampton, Dover, Amsterdam - are longer duration (10 to 14 nights).
Cruises generally commence in late Spring (April/May) and the season ends in September.
Cruises can depart from Baltic ports including Copenhagen, Stockholm and St Petersburg. Those departing from Europe and the UK do so from Dover, Southampton, Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Kiel
The shorter season reflects the more northerly latitude of the region, however daily temperatures through the region are generally a pleasant 20c/70f through summer and can rise to the mid to high 20's. April and September are cooler. This is a relatively low rain period with about 8 to 10 days of rain per month.
The Baltic and Scandinavia await to charm you with dazzling cities like St. Petersburg and imposing landmarks! Take a look at our cruise guide above. We have a wide range of cruise deals and special pricings for 2014, 2015 and 2016 available.
Remember the season for sailing to the Baltic area and Scandinavia isn't that long. It starts in late April and ends in early October. But the best time might be June, July and August. Cruise Lines like Fred Olsen offer cruises beyond the season as well.
