Day Date Port of call Arrival Departure
1 Wed 4 Jul 2012 Copenhagen, Denmark 5.00pm
Gems of the Baltic Cruise Copenhagen, situated on two islands, is the capital and largest city in Denmark. It is perhaps best known for being the final resting place of the famous author Hans Christian Andersen, and also being one of the world’s most environmentally friendly cities. It has a very high quality of life. With many colourful buildings dating back to the early 18th century, medieval cobbled streets and canals just a stone's throw away from ultra-modern waterfront architecture, and a street plan that dates back to the Middle Ages, it simply captures the imagination of all visitors.

History buffs can see where it all started, on the museum island of Slotsholmen, where Copenhagen was founded back in the 12th century. Fans of royalty can see the crown jewels in Rosenborg Slot, before catching the changing of the guard in the Rococo square at Amalienborg, the residence of the Danish Royal Family. Discover the 'free state' of Christiania, a marvellously ramshackle display of autonomy in action, while the renaissance Round Tower affords some of the best views of the city. The ‘must-see’, Little Mermaid of Hans Christian Andersen fame, is the city's best-known landmark, and the walk up to the statue is extremely pleasant.

What must be considered by tourists is obtaining a Copenhagen Card obtainable at the local tourist Information Centre. This allows free entry to 65 museums and attractions as well as free travel on buses, trains and Metro. There are also very relaxed and enjoyable canal tours that present attractive views of Castles, Palaces and Historic buildings. Above all be sure to visit the top-rated Tivoli Gardens, a magical amusement park in the heart of the city/ This lively Danish capital has it all, the cobblestone streets lined with bikes and warm people, village squares, people-watching at outdoor cafes, and even pantomimes.

3 Fri 6 Jul 2012 Tallinn, Estonia 11.00am 5.00pm
Gems of the Baltic Cruise Tallinn, capital of Estonia, is dominated by the amazing 13th century Toompea Castle towering over the rest of the city. Having always been the seat of power in Estonia, it is appropriately home to the country’s Parliament today. Tallinn was named the European Capital of Culture in 2011, and its Medieval city centre, the most amazing part of Tallinn, truly must be explored. Take any street and be astounded at the impressive guild houses, picturesque wells, boutiques, monasteries, churches and restaurants. For a break take a day trip to Lahemaa National Park, and see waterfalls, rapid streams, forests and lakes.

To take in some truly fantastic sights, be sure to visit the view platforms on Toompea Hill, and while there visit the Dome Church with its interesting mix of architectural styles. Get a feel for the history of the city by travelling back in time at the Estonian Open Air Museum, where one can see people living life as it was in the 18th to the early 20th centuries. Shop for some locally made goods at one of the many markets, and get to appreciate the local customs. For some great fun, visit the Olde Hansa restaurant, which is complete with waitresses in medieval dress.

Take one of the bike tours, or even ride the unique ‘conference bike’ that seven people can ride at once. Sights to see are numerous and include: Freedom Square, Kadriog Palace - home to a museum, Roterman Quarter - to see where Tallinn is heading in the future; and the gigantic spire of St. Olav’s Church - that was once the tallest building in the world. Last but definitely not least, visit the original city wall with its amazing fortifications that give the Old Town its fairytale fascination. Another option is to take a ferry bus that will get you to Helsinki and back. The trip takes 2 hours each way.

4 Sat 7 Jul 2012 St Petersburg, Russia 7.00am overnight
Gems of the Baltic Cruise St Petersburg is a federal city located on the Neva River at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea. In everyday speech the locals refer to it as simply Peter. It is the second largest city in Russia and is regarded as the most ‘Western’ city of Russia, as a large number of foreign consulates, international corporations, banks and other businesses are located here. They make a striking contrast with the historically older buildings, such as the Peter and Paul Fortress built in 1703. Attractions in St. Petersburg overwhelm even the most seasoned travellers. Chose a cruise ship that stays in port overnight.

From the the Mariinsky Theater to splendid suburban palaces and dozens of smaller museums, today's St Petersburg is there to explore and enjoy. The Historic Centre of St Petersburg, with some 36 historical architectural complexes and around 4,000 outstanding individual Monuments, has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city is also home to the world-famous Hermitage Museum (the largest in the world) and the Russian State Museum with its rich collection of Russian art. The city’s famed palaces include Peterhof Palace built for Peter the Great, and the Yusopov Palace where the horrific murder of Rasputin took place.

The Church of Our Saviour on Spilled Blood, a beautiful gold-draped onion-domed church that offers visitors a 300-step climb to a spectacular view of the city, and the exhibits at the dazzling blue and white Baroque-style Smolny Cathedral, are also very popular destinations. If looking for a delightful place to relax, then visit the Pavlovsk Palace and Park. Famous for its rich and diverse musical carnivals as well as their world renowned ballet companies, ‘Peter’ is definitely one of the world’s leading centres of culture. Among St Petersburg's greatest visitor attractions are the incredible Imperial parks and palaces in the suburbs of the city.

6 Mon 9 Jul 2012 Helsinki, Finland 6.00am 5.00pm
Gems of the Baltic Cruise Helsinki is the capital of Finland as well as being the centre of Finnish commerce and culture. The skyline features a dramatic blend of classical architecture and clean modernism, with Russian and Swedish influences throughout. Much more than simply the nation where saunas originated, Finland - Helsinki in particular - delights visitors with a vital sense of heritage as well as enthusiasm. Many of Helsinki's main attractions are also related to the sea, hence the growing popularity of boat tours, including the Suomenlinna naval fortress (a UNESCO World Heritage site) and Seurasaari Island with its parks and open-air museum.

There is a huge range of different ways to sightsee in Helsinki and experience the city's many tourist attractions first hand. Take a guided bus tour that includes sights such as: the Olympic Stadium that seats 40,000 spectators; the Linnanmaki Amusement Park with over 40 amazing ‘world-first’ rides such as the special wooden rollercoaster that is over 50-years-old, and remains the most popular ride; and Helsinki Zoo, founded in 1889, one of the oldest zoos in the world, and home to thousands of animals grouped geographically into themed areas, such as Africasia, Amazonia and Arctic.

Also well worth visiting are the Ateneum Art Museum that houses the largest collections of art in Finland with more than 20,000 works of art from the 1750s to the 1950s, as well as the beautiful and historically significant Helsinki Cathedral that is an Evangelic Lutheran church, and for many is the symbol of Helsinki. During the summer months, Helsinki's Island of Pihlajasaari is a true suntrap, while when the winter snow arrives the locals regularly flock to the hill of Paloheinan Maki, bringing their toboggans and skis with them.

7 Tue 10 Jul 2012 Stockholm, Sweden 8.00am 5.00pm
Gems of the Baltic Cruise The city of Stockholm in Sweden spreads across 14 islands as it faces proudly out to the Baltic Sea. Its history stretches over seven centuries, and it is Sweden's centre of art and culture. It is also famous for being the home of the Nobel Prizes. You can get to just about all of Stockholm’s many wondrous sites on foot, or you can take a boat trip that will give you a different facet of Scandinavia’s largest and undoubtedly most beautiful city. Stockholm is one of the most crowded museum-cities in the world with around 100 museums.

The city's oldest section is Old Town, located on the original small islands of the city's earliest settlements, and still featuring the medieval street layout with a large number of extraordinary shops, trendy cafes, and bars. Some notable buildings of the Old Town are the large German Church and several mansions and palaces, such as the House of Nobility. Take in a 360 degree panorama of Stockholm inner quarters from the City Hall tower. There are two UNESCO World Heritage sites in the area, the Royal Palace Drottningholm, and the Woodland Cemetery.

Stockholm is the best city in terms of freedom from pollution. Surrounded by 219 nature reserves, it has around 1,000 green spaces. Grona Lund is an amusement park located on the island of Djurgarden. The Amusement Park has over 30 attractions and many restaurants. It is a popular tourist attraction and visited by thousands of people every day. However for those visitors who love hats it’s a must to visit Hattbaren, a small shop with a huge range of hats. However, above all, visitors never forget Stockholm’s sheer natural beauty.

9 Thu 12 Jul 2012 Berlin (Warnemunde), Germany 6.00am 10.00pm
Gems of the Baltic Cruise Passengers on ships visiting Berlin typically dock at the north eastern port of Warnemunde and go directly to the capital of Germany that is just a three hour train ride away. Berlin, completely devastated in WW11, has amazingly seen the reconstruction of its sixteenth-century core that exists in the Nikolaiviertel, while nearby stand many rebuilt nineteenth-century buildings from the time of the Second Reich. Little from the Third Reich has been rebuilt, except for the 1936 Olympic Stadium. Today the city is a mix of beautiful historical buildings and some truly amazing modern architecture.

One of the most popular attractions for Berlin tourism is the Berlin Wall, the most significant symbol of the end of the division of West and East Berlin. There are a wide range of museums, churches, buildings, concert halls and more to visit. The Brandenburg Gate one of the most internationally recognized landmarks in the world, Checkpoint Charlie, and the Jewish Museum that looks back over 2,000 years of Jewish history including the holocaust are among the most visited sights.

10 Fri 13 Jul 2012 Kiel Canal, Germany 8.00am 5.00pm
Gems of the Baltic Cruise Kiel Canal - Europe’s Panama - is an artificial waterway 98 km long in Schleswig-Holstein, N central Germany, connecting the North Sea with the Baltic Sea. At sea level the canal extends from Kiel on the Baltic to Brunsbuttelkoog at the mouth of the Elbe River. Locks at each end of the canal minimize tidal variation. Built 1887-1895 to facilitate movement of the German fleet, the Kiel Canal was widened and deepened from 1905 to 1914. Large ocean-going ships can now pass through the canal.

Because of its great military and commercial importance the canal was internationalised by the Treaty of Versailles (1919), though its direct administration was left with the Germans.These days it’s an international waterway used by 90 to130 ships per day, and it can easily be transited within a day. Particularly big vessels sometimes have to wait in designated sidings before they can proceed. However, this is not a great problem as it saves Baltic shipping a 460km detour.

Until late 2015 Eurodam sails the North Atlantic seaboards of Europe and North America. In September/October the colours of New England and Canadian maritime provinces are on display. From then on it’s the Caribbean ex Fort Lauderdale. In March 2015 Eurodam returns to Europe, sailing mostly out of Copenhagen to the Baltic Sea. Hallmarks of HAL include spacious staterooms and public areas, rich timber furnishings set with museum-quality paintings and antiques, discreet personal service, and artful itineraries that allow for overnights in key cities. Holland America Line arranges excellent onshore tours, and pre- and post-tour packages.

Accommodation
Of the staterooms, 85% have an outside view, and of these four-fifths have a private balcony. Staterooms are spacious, and include: Interior large and standard; Ocean-view, some with panoramic windows; and three levels of suites – Verandah, Deluxe Verandah, and Penthouse Verandah. Basic features include a flat-panel TV and DVD player (book your DVDs by phone), ample storage, personal safe, excellent twin/queen bedding and bath amenities, fresh fruit on request, and nightly turndown service. The décor is very pleasing and comfortable. Complimentary meals can be ordered for in-suite dining around the clock.

Food and Dining
The ship has seven formal to casual dining areas. The two-deck main Dining Room serves open- The ship has seven formal to casual dining areas. The two-deck main Dining Room serves open-seating breakfast and lunch. For dinner chose between set-seating at first or second servings, or open seating on the upper deck. The Master Chefs’ three-course menus are excellent, and waiting staff are friendly Indonesian and Filipino stewards. Ask for a table for 2/4/6/8. Special dietary requests can be ordered pre-cruise. Two nights in seven are formal nights, perhaps preceded with pre-dinner drinks, then after your meal retire to the Show Lounge or a musical recital. There are three alternative restaurants, all best to reserve in advance: The Pinnacle Grill for steaks and seafood, the renowned Asian-themed Tamarind offers cuisine from across SE and E Asia, and the (no service charge) Italian-American-influenced Canaletto. Ask about wine packages.

Entertainment
At night the two-deck Vista Show Lounge offers (twice nightly) musical productions, cabaret, and its features include three video screens. Alternatively, attend a musical recital in one of the lounges, dance to the backing of a band ensemble, watch sport in the multi-screen sports bar, or sip drinks while your request is sung by the pianist or guitarist. View recent movies in the Screening Room, unless you’d prefer to watch your choice of DVD in your cabin. Through the evening the disco and nightclub on the top deck will take you into the early hours of the morning, very inviting if the new day is a Sea Day and you’ve ordered breakfast in your cabin. The large casino has lots of playing options.
