Join Seabourn on their newest ship Ovation on this cruise from Sweden to Denmark via St. Petersburg. Begin in Stockholm, the 'city that floats on water', sprawled over 14 islands that are linked by over 50 bridges which cross winding waterways in all directions. Cruise to Tallinn, Estonia, whose port's ideal maritime position has always been a temptation to other nations. Explore the fortification walls, worn cobbled streets and 13th-century buildings of the Old Town, perched on a low hill by the shore. Move swiftly on to St. Petersburg, Russia's second largest city and principal Baltic port; with the three days docked here, you can explore architecture, palaces and art treasures. The penultimate stop is Helsinki, capital of Finland and "Daughter of the Baltic." Set on a peninsula surrounded by islands and protected by fortifications at Suomenlinna, Helsinki is a modern, lively city. End the cruise in Copenhagen, where the delightful ambiance and the lively atmosphere are certain to leave you feeling refreshed.
Itineraries are subject to change. Prices are per person based on double occupancy on an all-inclusive basis whilst on board, and include return British Airways Euro Traveller flights from London Heathrow and private transfers. Single supplements available on request.
