EU Scandinavia & Baltic


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

Cruise types

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).

Cruise season

Cruises generally commence in late Spring (April/May) and the season ends in September.

Main ports

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
