Copenhagen, Warnemünde, Klaipeda, Riga, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Tallinn, Stockholm
Aboard Oceania Cruises’ Marina

Baltic & Scandinavian treasures abound on this voyage to some of Northern Europe’s most legendary ports aboard Oceania Cruises’ majestic Marina. Set sail from Copenhagen for the delightful port of Warnemünde, or head inland to Berlin, a dynamic city home to the Brandenburg Gate and Berlin Wall. Stroll past charming timber-framed buildings in Klaipeda’s Old Town, and explore Riga, the “Paris of the East.” Take in more architectural gems in the Finnish capital of Helsinki, a renowned international design mecca. Savor almost three full days in St. Petersburg, famed for its pastel, onion-domed cathedrals and fabled palaces, such as the immense Winter Palace and lavish Catherine’s Palace. Before concluding your odyssey in Stockholm, experience the fairy-tale atmosphere at Tallinn, a beautifully preserved city that radiates old-world charm with red-roofed homes and spire-crowned churches.
