On arrival in Stockholm, you will be transferred to the port to board the 4 Star Serenade of the Seas. The ship departs into the Baltic Sea in the evening.

Be impressed by the beauty of Stockholm’s stunning archipelago, say Skol! in an ice bar or visit the magnificent City Hall. Be wow’ed by the breath-taking Vasa, the best preserved and most complete 17th century ship in the world, which sank in the city’s waters in 1628. A coffee and a pastry is an essential Swedish tradition and a tour of the winding streets of medieval Gamla Stan is a delight.

Day 2: Helsinki, Finland: Arrive 11.00 Depart 18.00

Say hello to a reindeer in the Nuuksio National Park or walk the lovely nature trails. Be wow’ed by the awe-inspiring beauty of Helsinki’s sparkling seas and granite islands on a boat cruise or speedboat adventure. In the city there’s plenty to explore, from colourful markets and beautiful Finnish architecture to magnificent buildings such as the Parliament, Opera House, Cathedral and Olympic stadium.

The canals and elegant buildings of this amazing city will take your breath away and sights such as Peterhof Palace and St. Isaac’s Cathedral are similarly impressive. An unforgettable trip to the Russian Ballet is another thrill.

Day 5: Tallinn, Estonia: Arrive 07.00 Depart 16.00

Enjoy a horse and carriage ride at the Estonian Open Air Museum, which recreates traditional Estonian village life. Tour Tallinn by Segway or bike to see its captivating sites, such as the fairy-tale walled Old Town and the city’s famous cathedrals. Discover Tallinn’s impressive modern architecture at the Kumu art museum or the remnants of the Soviet era and the German occupation at the Patarei sea fortress.

Day 6: Riga, Latvia:

Cosmopolitan Riga buzzes with youthful excitement and verve but is also known for its architectural gems, including a 13th-century cathedral, wooden houses and Art Nouveau buildings. See the city by canal boat or try Riga’s chic restaurants with their fusion of traditional and avant-garde cuisine. Breathe fresh air on walks or cycle rides in the nature parks, beaches and woods or indulge in a heavenly spa treatment.

Sit back, kick off your shoes and put your feet up during our ‘at sea’ days, where you can chill in the bar, lounge by the pool or enjoy a relaxing beauty treatment in the spa. For simple pleasures, why not try a game of table tennis? Or if you’re feeling energetic, now’s the chance to explore all the amazing activities the ship has to offer, from spectacular, West-End-style entertainment to adrenalin-charged sports.
