Days 3-4
Copenhagen, Denmark

Anchor in to the charming streets of Copenhagen today, with highlights including the famed Little Mermaid sculpture, historic Tivoli Gardens and Christiansborg Castle. Compact and welcoming, it’s very easy to explore, with a large pedestrianised area and plenty of cafés, bars and live music venues to discover; there are more than a dozen Michelin-starred restaurants to eat in as well. You could even enjoy the services of your own private vehicle and driver, spend the day with one of the ship's chefs or travel to Copenhagen's outskirts, where rolling hills lie dotted with ancient castles.

A second day at sea today affords you the chance to indulge at the spa with a luxurious treatment or work off any excess in the gym.

Day 6
Tallinn, Estonia

Step back in time as you anchor in to Tallin and its beautifully preserved medieval centre today. Explore with city tours to take in the city's ancient houses, famous churches and squares alongside delightful parks, Baroque palaces and the city's famed 15th-century convent, as well as the chance to discover the city's Upper Town and its secret tunnels – best combined with traditional beer tasting in the Old Town.

Day 7
Helsinki, Finland

Anchor in Finland today and its modern capital, Helsinki. Embark on a city tour to take in impressive modern architecture, sprawling parks and buzzing open-air markets, or head to charming Porvoo and its medieval cobbles. Alternatively, we'd highly recommend taking in Helsinki’s most famous sights in panoramic comfort on a guided coach tour, pausing at landmarks like the domed cathedral and its famous steps, the historic Olympic Stadium and the modern opera house on Töölönlahti Bay.

Day 8
Stockholm, Sweden

Sail to Sweden's most famous city today, being sure to take a stroll through the oldest part of the city – the charming Galma Stan – a wealthy district full of renaissance architecture and labyrinthine alleys. Lose yourself in the twisting alleys and break out onto the bridges that span the river to enjoy superb views of the city skyline. After a stop for fika, visit the royal palace, myriad green parks and impressive Vasa Museum, housed in a magnificently-restored, 17th-century warship. Then, an ice-cold drink at the city's famous Ice Bar is an excellent way to finish the day.

Stay: Celebrity Apex

Meals: B L D

Day 9
Visby, Sweden

Visby is a former Viking city on the Swedish island of Gotland in the middle of the Baltic Sea. This charming walled city is considered to be the best-persevered fortified commercial town in Northern Europe, with numerous excellent examples of medieval art and architecture – it's little wonder it has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995. Stretching over 2 miles, the 13th-century wall surrounding the city reaches heights of over 9 metres. Nearby you'll find attractive beaches and pleasant rolling hills and countryside.

No voyage aboard Celebrity Apex is complete without experiencing Celebrity's unique Magic Carpet. The cantilevered, floating platform reaches heights of 13 stories above sea level and is designed with comfortable, casual seating, a full bar and on occasion live music. It truly is a destination in its own right.

Day 11
Skagen, Denmark

Situated in Jutland at the tip of Denmark, around 300 miles from the Danish capital Copenhagen, rugged and beautiful Skagen is a favoured tourist destination, especially in the summer months with its long coastline and pleasant atmosphere. Again, you'll have the chance to explore its highlights with a choice of excursions. Perhaps you'll visit a local manor and 'haunted' Renaissance castle, or explore the region's rich maritime history on a museum visit and walking tour. Alternatively, join an expert guide to take to the city's streets or go local on a relaxing scenic bike tour. Make sure to visit the famous sand-covered church on the outskirts of the town.
