The Baltic Sea allows travellers to visit a range of Scandinavian and Baltic countries. From the fairy-tale castles of Copenhagen to the gilded palaces of St. Petersburg, Scandinavia and Baltic Russia cruise destinations reflect over two millennia of history. The memories of Teutonic knights and Hanseatic merchant kings and czars come alive through a montage of architectural and cultural achievements..

Baltic cruises really do encompass a huge variety of cultures and history.

Generally cruises operate within the Baltic. However these cruise combine well with a cruise that visits to the Norwegian Fjords

Cruise types

The region is well serviced by the major cruise lines so cruise choice here could well be determined by price and type.
