Baltic Magic Cruise

Back to the Top

The Baltic is an area of Northern Europe that encompasses the Baltic Sea, Kattegat Bay and Skagerrak Strait, and it includes the bordering countries of Sweden, Finland, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, northeastern Germany and eastern Denmark. Amazing historical and cultural sites await passengers who cruise this magnificent region, and shore excursions typically visit museums, palaces, castles and cathedrals.

Stroll cobblestone streets amid medieval architecture in the well-preserved Baltic capital of Tallinn, Estonia. Visit St. Petersburg’s legendary Hermitage, considered one of the world’s greatest museums, and spend time touring some of Russia’s most notable grand palaces. Stroll through the “Venice of the North,” the cosmopolitan city of Stockholm, well-known for its picturesque buildings, lush parks and unique waterways. Or, visit the beautiful city of Helsinki, with its smalltown feel and eclectic blend of neoclassical and modern architecture.

Your Baltic Magic Cruise Tour is fully escorted and departs and returns to Sydney or Melbourne. Experience the exceptional service that is the hallmark of Emirates Airways aboard your luxury A380 to Dubai for a direct flight into Copenhagen. Transfer to your 4 star accommodation at the Scandic Palace Hotel positioned right on the central square in the middle of Copenhagen.

Embark on a tour of wonderful Copenhagen visiting Amnalienborg Royal Palace, Kronborg Castle and Tivoli Gardens. During the afternoon experience a fabulous cruise on the canals of Copenhagen with free time to explore and shop.

Board your beautiful cruise ship, the Norwegian Star and unpack in your luxury Balcony Cabin before sailing the Baltic Sea to Warnemunde in Germany. Take the opportunity to experience a tour of Berlin or Rostock, or relax and explore the local sites and villages.

Set sail again for medieval Tallin in Estonia, a Hanseatic city founded in the 13th century, where nearly every building is a sight to see. Its medieval spirit is reflected in the main square, towering spires, cobblestone streets and the stone walls that encompass the city. Explore the gothic Church of St. Olai, handicraft shops and the 13th-century Danish Toompea Castle.

Your cruise includes two full days in magnificent St Petersburg. This city along the Neva River embodies some of Russia’s greatest treasures. A few of the major attractions include the famous masterpieces at The Hermitage Museum, with its exquisite collection of art and antiquities. Visit the baroque-style Winter Palace and St Isaac’s Cathedral with its 300- foot gilt cupola and the Bronze Horseman, a monument to Peter the Great.

Take the opportunity to visit the Grand Palace of Peterhof and the Cascades and to explore the Cathedral Of Peter and Paul, or visit the markets and the Metro, or just cruise the canals to experience Russian life; there is just so much to do, see and experience.

Then at night, enjoy a night of music at Sheremetyev Theatre, including a performance by the St. Petersburg Opera Company, or perhaps a Night of Russian Ballet. St Petersburg is the world centre of ballet: enjoy one of the best classical ballet such as Giselle, Swan Lake or the Nutcracker Suite.

Helsinki in Finland is our next port of call; perhaps take a walking or a coach tour of the “White City of the North” experiencing Senate Square, Sebelius Monument, the Tempelliaukio Rock Church, Povoo Town or heritage listed Suomenlinna.

Sail for Sweden and the chance to explore Stockholm. This immaculate city sprawls across more than a dozen islands connected by bridges. The best half-day shore excursions tour Gamla Stan, or old town, with its narrow cobblestone streets and buildings that date to the 17th and 18th centuries. Stops typically include Stortorget Square and its historic stock exchange; the hall where Nobel Laureates are honored; the great warship Vasa; and the Royal Palace to watch the changing of the guard.

You’ll experience the beauty of the Baltic, the rich history of six countries and the friendliness of the people on your Baltic Magic Cruise Tour. Return to wonderful Copenhagen for your fabulous Emirates flights back to Sydney or Melbourne.
