7 May 2017 - At Sea

8 May 2017 - Tallinn, Estonia

Medieval walls and towers still stand tall in Tallinn's Old Town. Stroll and shop along cobblestone streets, walk up to the Baroque palace in the Upper Town, look out over the red roofs to the Baltic below, drop in at Alexander Nevsky Cathedral to find inspiration in the gleaming mosaics and icons. Crisp, gorgeous linen is a local specialty—find yours at a small store near the town hall square.

9 May 2017 - St Petersburg, Russia

Enjoy an overnight stay at this popular port, and ensure you visit the famous Hermitage Museum at the Winter Palace, with its renowned art collection from Raphael to Rembrandt, Titian to Tintoretto.

10 May 2017 - St Petersburg, Russia

Peter the Great called St. Petersburg his "Window on Europe." Be sure to check out the babbling fountains of Peterhof, and the Amber Room at Catherine's Palace which words cannot touch.

11 May 2017 - Helsinki, Finland

Shaped by its bays and off-shore islands, Helsinki is one of Europe's most scenic capitals. Take an archipelago cruise, walk the esplanade shopping streets, hear a Sibelius concert, or tour across the Arctic Circle to Lapland, home of Santa Claus, reindeer and the Midnight Sun.

12 May 2017 - Stockholm, Sweden

Old Town Gamla Stan, and the 18th-century Royal Palace are a must see when stopping overnight in Europe’s Cultural Capital.

13 May 2017 - Stockholm, Sweden

There's so much to see in charming Stockholm, sprawled on 18 islands, often called the "Venice of the North." Cruise the sparkling waterways and navigate narrow, medieval streets. Watch the snappy changing of the guard at the Baroque Royal Palace and sail into Viking history with a visit to the awesome Vasa Museum. Work up an appetite so you can do justice to a lavish smorgasbord.

14 May 2017 - At Sea

15 May 2017 - Warnemunde, Germany

Inseparable from its modern history, Berlin decidedly features it. In the former Soviet/American/British sectors are the Berlin Cathedral, Checkpoint Charlie, Unter den Linden Boulevard and the stunning Brandenburg Gate. In the Western sector, browse the lively Kurfurstendamm for snazzy clothing stores, delicate hand-painted porcelain and a snack of beer and bratwurst.

16 May 2017 - Copenhagen, Denmark

Denmark's capital is sophisticated, saucy and friendly. Stroll the fairytale world of Tivoli Gardens to take in bright lights, castles that out-Disney Disney. See the city's 200- year-old Royal Palace, the lively Old Harbor—Hans Christian Andersen lived here. Salute the Little Mermaid, symbol of this light-hearted city.
