About

Recommended for:
Ocean cruise

Medieval towns, ancient architecture and grand monuments await on this in-depth exploration of some of Scandinavia and eastern Europe’s most fascinating cities in high summer, when days are long in this part of the world, allowing even more time to explore. You'll anchor in to an impressive nine countries in 12 days, beginning among the colourful fishing village of Denmark's Skagen before swapping the Baroque gems of Sweden's Karlskrona for the famed museums and cobbles of Stockholm and Helsinki. A trip highlight, St Petersburg is your next port of call, where you'll anchor for two days to allow you to fully immerse yourself in the city's myriad delights. The medieval towns of Sweden’s Visby and Estonia’s Tallin are next before you tour Gdansk in Poland and sail back to Copenhagen's colourful harbour. What's more, you'll return each day to the delights of Oceania Cruises' Marina, with its the Finest Cuisine At Sea® accolade living up to expectation in six gourmet, open-seating dining venues that offer the likes of champagne-paired menus alongside cooking classes, a luxe spa and much more, with shore excursions offering everything from kayaking among archipelagos to medieval city tours.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Board the ship at Southampton

Embark Marina at Southampton today ready to begin your cruise, where ultra-spacious suites, sparkling furnishings and a country-club ambience await, with six open-seating gourmet restaurants and multiple bars on offer for you to make the most of your evenings over the next 12 days.

Stay: Marina 

Meals: D

Day 2
At sea

You've got a full day at sea today to really take advantage of all the ship has to offer. Perhaps indulge at the spa with a luxurious treatment or celebrate the start of your adventure with a cocktail on the pool deck or afternoon tea in the lounge. When it comes to dining, Oceania Cruises offer one of the best experiences at sea. There's everything from gourmet, wine-paired food tasting at La Reserve by Wine Spectator – think Brittany blue lobster and wagyu beef paired with champagne – to the only hands-on cooking school at sea, run by some of Europe's best master chefs. This evening, sample of one of the five other dining venues that offer Asian, Italian or French cuisine in ultra-stylish settings, the perfect prelude to a night at the casino, theatre or one of the multiple intimate bars.

Stay: Marina

Meals: B L D

Day 3
Skagen, Denmark

Centuries-old fishing village Skagen is your first port of call today, home to museums, ancient castles and a beautiful shoreline. With myriad shore excursions on offer, arranged directly from the ship, don't miss the famed Skagen Museum or, for something a little different, why not enjoy a guided tour along the Jutland coast, pausing at Renaissance castles and churches? If you’d rather explore on foot, there are plenty of relaxed walking tours that stop at the city's famous marina and boathouses, too.

Stay: Marina

Meals: B L D

Day 4
Kiel, Germany

Anchor in to the harbour at Kiel today, a historic maritime city and gateway to the famous Kiel Canal. Explore the Kiel fjord, museums and memorials in the city centre and buzzing waterfront – and be sure to make time to visit the famed Kiel Maritime Museum Fish Market and botanical gardens before stopping at one of the many promenade-side cafes.

Stay: Marina

Meals: B L D

Day 5
Karlskrona, Sweden

The tiny, charming city of Karlskrona awaits today in a perfect showcase of Sweden's rich maritime and architectural heritage. The city itself is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, explored with everything from boat tours to the Kungsholm fortress or drives along the east coast to walk through Renaissance-era towns – making time for a Swedish fika, of course, at one of the city's many cosy cafes. From there, there's also the chance to head out on a thrilling museum and boat tour, pausing at Karlskrona’s 30-island archipelago and famous baroque landmarks, or for sailing enthusiasts, why not visit the old naval shipyard and naval museum on a guided walking tour?

Stay: Marina

Meals: B L D

Day 6
Stockholm, Sweden

Sweden's most famous city awaits today. Be sure to take a stroll through charming Galma Stan, as well as visiting the royal palace, green parks and impressive Vasa Museum, housed in a magnificently-restored, 17th-century warship. You could even explore the Jewish side of Stockholm, either by coach or on foot, that visits the city's oldest and largest synagogues and explores Sweden's Jewish heritage. Thrilling rib boat adventures through the Stockholm archipelago and panoramic glass gondola rides are also on offer or, for fans of Swedish author Stieg Larsson, there's even the chance to visit the nearby island of Södermalm for an insight into Larsson's characters in his renowned books. Then, why not finish the day off at the city's famous Ice Bar for an ice-cold drink?

Stay: Marina

Meals: B L D

Day 7
Helsinki, Finland

Sail to neighbouring Finland today to take in Helsinki's impressive modern architecture, sprawling parks and buzzing open-air markets. Nearby Porvoo is a charming medieval gem, or there's the chance to visit a family-run horse farm or go kayaking on the Finnish archipelago. We'd highly recommend a tour taking in Helsinki’s most famous sights in panoramic comfort on a guided coach drive, pausing at landmarks like the domed cathedral and its famous steps, the historic Olympic Stadium and the modern opera house on Töölönlahti Bay.

Stay: Marina

Meals: B L D

Days 8-9
St Petersburg, Russia

A trip highlight today, with two full days to explore the magnificent city of St. Petersburg. We recommend a full city tour that will see you visit the famous Peter and Paul Fortress, Winter Palace, The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood and the Hermitage Museum. Then, be sure to make like a local and enjoy an evening of ballet or a traditional Russian musical evening, both of which can be organised from the ship.

Stay: Marina

Meals: B L D

Day 10
Tallin, Estonia

Step back in time as you sail to Tallin’s 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.

Stay: Marina

Meals: B L D

Day 11
Visby, Sweden

Sail to Sweden's beautiful island of Gotland today and the former Hanseatic League city of Visby's medieval towered walls, winding lanes and ancient churches. We'd recommend a tour around the city and its surrounding coastline, taking in sights like the old Hanseatic harbour, the world’s largest hoard of Viking silver and the famous ring of UNESCO-listed towers, or even head to a local Gotland farm to sample local Swedish delicacies. It's well worth booking onto an Oceania exclusive small-group tour, allowing you ultimate flexibility and even personalised tours.

Stay: Marina

Meals: B L D

Day 12
Gdansk, Poland

The Baltic jewel of Gdansk awaits on your penultimate day, home to the famed Golden Gate, Solidarity Square, ancient St. Mary's Church and Oliwa Cathedral. Be reminded of Poland's turbulent recent history with a visit to the sobering museum at Stutthof Concentration Camp, or perhaps head on a panoramic Gdansk coach tour that'll see you take in the sights in comfort, with multiple stops for photos, of course. Tonight, why not enjoy a pre-dinner aperitif on the deck before a night at the casino to toast your final night on board with new-found friends?
