Itinerary

Day 1 - Home – Copenhagen, Denmark

Day 2 - Copenhagen

Upon arrival in Copenhagen, we begin a city tour to familiarize ourselves with this beautiful city. After, check-in to our hotel and have some time to relax before our Welcome Dinner tonight. (D)

The capital of Denmark, Copenhagen, is filled with canals, cobbled squares and copper spires. But don’t let the historic appearance fool you. This is also Scandinavia’s most cosmopolitan city. Certainly you can relive medieval times in The Latin Quarter, but you can also enjoy some of Europe’s finest shopping, museums, cafes and nightlife prior to your cruise around the Baltics.

Day 3 - Copenhagen – Embarkation on the Escape | Depart 5pm

After Breakfast, Copenhagen is yours to explore at your own pace. Enjoy the morning at leisure before transferring to the pier and embarking on the Escape. Once onboard and checked-in, we get together for a Welcome Cocktail Reception. (B,L,D)

Day 4 - Berlin (Warnemunde) | 730am – 10pm

It’s been more than two decades since the walls came down and Berlin became unified in many ways, including the pursuit of joy. Germany’s capital city is a city that balances cosmopolitan chic with a liberal undercurrent of creativity and cool. Famous landmarks like the Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag fascinate. The elegant Bavarian Quarter amazes. (B,L,D)

Day 5 - At Sea

Relax onboard the Escape and enjoy all the amenities the ship has to offer. Try your luck at the casino or relax by the pool. (B,L,D)

Day 6 - Tallinn, Estonia | 9am – 430pm

Journey inside the ancient walls of Old Town to explore stunning Medieval landmarks like Toompea Castle and a 15th Century apothecary shop. Move up a couple centuries to experience Tsar Peter I’s Kadriorg Palace, filled with art and surrounded by sculpted gardens and peaceful woodlands. (B,L,D)

Day 7 - St. Petersburg, Russia | Arrive 7am

Founded by the Russian Tsar, Peter the Great, St. Petersburg has for centuries been the cultural center of Russia, with its spectacular architecture, Tchaikovsky operas and the famous Kirov ballet. It has undergone many changes over the decades, but “The Venice of the North” remains a dazzling cruise destination, a Russian city with a European flair, a city with more than 200 museums, and one of the largest English gardens in Europe! (B,L,D)

The day is free to explore St. Petersburg at your own pace. (B,L,D)

Day 9 - Helsinki, Finland | 7am – 4pm

Welcome to Scandinavia’s “White City of the North,” a city defined more by its people and Art Nouveau architecture than its chilly climate (from October to April). Helsinki is a classic sea-city, with a dramatic coastline colored by bays and inlets. The city keeps its historical roots intact. (B,L,D)

Day 10 - Nynashamn (Stockholm) | 7am – 7pm

When we our ship pulls into this small Swedish port, we’ll be greeted by ferries transporting us to Gotland island. Nynashamn hosts a harbor party each summer where boaters and travelers alike flock. The small and laidback town offers picture-taking opportunities from the surrounding scenic nature and of course, the Baltic Sea. (B,L,D)
