14-Night Baltic Capitals Voyage on Azamara Quest
Your cruise of the Baltic Capitals begins in cosmopolitan Copenhagen, Denmark, home of 15 Michelin-starred restaurants - the most of any Scandinavian capital. Indulge before setting off for a day aboard your boutique hotel at sea. An overnight stay in Stockholm, Sweden, is next. Here, you can stroll the cobblestone storybook streets of Gamla Stan, the city’s oldest and most enchanting district. Or, lose yourself within Stockholm’s rich assortment of museums and galleries. And if you work up your appetite, sneak into one of the city’s traditional restaurants for some authentic Swedish husmanskost (home cooking).
Next, we’re off to fabulously photogenic Tallinn, Estonia, before spending two nights and three days in St. Petersburg, Russia. Grandiose and gorgeous, a stroll through St. Petersburg is like walking through a living, breathing museum. In fact, the historic heart of the city is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Explore one of the greatest art collections on Earth at the Hermitage, enjoy a night at the opera at the Mariinsky Theatre, and tour the baroque beauty of Catherine Palace.
Helsinki, Finland, is your next stop, where style meets functionality, and the architecture sets the pace for the rest of the world. The Kiasma Museum, Musiikkitalo concert hall, and the iconic Helsinki train station are must-see sights during your time here. We’ll follow this stop up with a day at sea before arriving in trendsetting Berlin for a late stay. Historians, foodies, fashionistas - you’ll all find something to love as you stroll the German capital’s vibrant Kieze (neighborhoods).
After making our way through the Kiel Canal, we’ll arrive for an overnight stay in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Equal parts historic and hedonistic, Amsterdam is incredibly pedestrian-friendly, making it easy to explore by foot or bike! This voyage then concludes in Southampton.
