Stockholm. Copenhagen. Helsinki. Tallinn … These fab five trip off the tongue like a who’s who of Baltic beauty.
Think cobbled streets filled with jumbles of bicycles, ornate palaces that date back centuries and untamed beauty as far as the eye can see. Think long white nights that spill into languid summer days. Think melting pot: equal parts language, gastronomy, tradition and diversity. But more than anything, think of a region where the countries may be close but the cultures a miles apart. Whether you want cathedrals or countryside, our Baltic sea cruises will captivate you.
The Kingdom of Denmark is the geographical link between Scandinavia and Europe. Half-timber villages and tidy farms rub shoulders with towns and a few cities, where pedestrians set the pace, not traffic. In the capital, Copenhagen—København in Danish— parents safely park baby carriages outside bakeries while outdoor cafés fill with cappuccino-sippers, and locals pedal to work in lanes thick with bicycle traffic
Stockholm is a city in the flush of its second youth. In the last 15 years, Sweden's capital has emerged from its cold, Nordic shadow to take the stage as a truly international city. What started with entry into the European Union in 1995, gained pace with the extraordinary IT boom of the late 1990s, and solidified with the hedge fund invasion of the mid-nineties continues today.
If you like majestic open spaces, fine architecture, and courteous locals, Finland is for you. Mother Nature dictates life in this Nordic land, where winter brings perpetual darkness, and summer, perpetual light. Crystal clear streams run through vast forests lighted by the midnight sun, and reindeer roam free. Fill your lungs with fresh, fresh air and enjoy everything this lovely city has to offer.
Estonia's history is sprinkled liberally with long stretches of foreign domination, beginning in 1219 with the Danes, followed without interruption by the Germans, Swedes, and Russians. Only after World War I, with Russia in revolutionary wreckage, was Estonia able to declare its independence. Shortly before World War II, in 1940, that independence was usurped by the Soviets, who proceeded to suppress all forms of national Estonian pride for the next 50 years.

We proudly sail against the tide. While other companies are building bigger and bigger cruise ships, we keep our ships small. Why? So that when you travel on your luxury Baltic sea cruise, you can reach the tiny, off-the-beaten-track ports that larger ships cannot reach. So that when you are on board, you can mingle with like-minded guests and so that new faces become old friends. So that when you travel with us, you feel part of our family. That’s why.

Every country has its own cuisine and what better way to experience the diversity of a region often overlook in gastronomy terms than to taste it!
