The next port of call is Helsinki, 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.
Then onward to Russia where you’ll marvel at the magnificence of St. Petersburg. The jewel in the Baltic crown and Russia’s most European city.
Next you will reach Tallinn, Estonia’s capital on the Baltic Sea. Unquestionably one of Europe’s most magical capitals.

Departure from Port of Tyne
Board the ship before you set sail.
Copenhagen has something for everyone, from the imposing Christiansborg and Amalienborg palaces to the vibrant cafés and shopping outlets lining the pedestrianised streets of Strøget – not forgetting Nyhavn, the pretty waterfront district too. And of course, no visit here would be complete without a photo stop at the iconic Little Mermaid statue.
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.
St. Petersburg, Russia
St Petersburg is utterly captivating with baroque palaces, wide elegant streets, ornate bridges and broad curving canals. The city is built on 40 islands at the mouth of the River Neva. The main street, Nevsky Prospekt, is 5km long and lined with cafés, bars and restaurants mixed in with upmarket hotels and sumptuous shops. St Petersburg was the imperial capital for two centuries, and Tsar Peter the Great’s ‘Window on the West’. The sheer grandeur of the city, and its revolutionary spirit, never fail to impress.
Tallinn, Estonia’s capital on the Baltic Sea, is unquestionably one of Europe’s most magical capitals. This ancient Hanseatic city is justifiably proud of its beautiful churches, solid limestone houses and well-preserved cobbled streets. Toompea Hill, with its medieval houses and alleyways, is the oldest part, and at its foot substantial remains of the city wall can still be seen, surrounded by well-maintained parks. The medieval town hall is one of the best preserved in northern Europe, and the weathercock, Gamle Toomas, is an enduring symbol of Tallinn.
The capital and largest city of Norway, is one of Scandinavia’s most historic, interesting and welcoming destinations. Surrounded by mountains and its own fjord, this compact and cultured city is both easy and fun to explore on foot. Exploring one of Oslo’s many museums, uncovering its booming art scene at any number of its commercial galleries or simply marvelling at the extraordinary architecture that fills the skyline are all highlights of this fine city.
