Day Date Port of call Arrival Departure
1 Mon 2 Jul 2012 Copenhagen, Denmark 10.00pm
Baltic Treasures 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.

2 Tue 3 Jul 2012 Berlin (Warnemunde), Germany 8.00am 11.00pm
Baltic Treasures 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.

3 Wed 4 Jul 2012 Ronne, Denmark 9.00am 6.00pm
Baltic Treasures Cruise The Danish town of Rønne, the largest on the island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea, is home to 15 medieval churches - four of which are Round Churches - that display unique artwork and architecture. In the colourful Old Quarter with its cobbled streets one finds some notable examples of 19th and early 20th century architecture that include half-timbered houses and interesting museums. Ronne is also well known for its arts and crafts, especially the delightful clay pottery and glass souvenirs made on site.

The square of Lile Torv with its cafes and shops, a pleasant park and the main post office, as well as one of the older large brick buildings, is popular with visitors. Of interest, near the port, is the Lighthouse that dates back to 1880, while in the south of the town stands the fascinating Bornholm Castle that is now converted into a defence museum. Then there’s the Bornholm Museum that not only covers seafaring and natural history, but also has an historic art department. In addition it offers activities for children.

The Erichsens Gard Museum is located in an upper-class citizen’s home - situated in a delightful garden – exactly as it appeared in the last half of the 19th century. It offers visitors a great view into the daily life of people living on the island some 200 years ago. On a hill above the harbour of Ronne stands St Nicholas' Church, originally 14th C. but largely rebuilt in 1918. Another pleasure for visitors is to dine on delicious smoked herring while sipping da beer.

4 Thu 5 Jul 2012 Gdansk, Poland 8.00am 6.00pm
Baltic Treasures Cruise Gdansk lies on the southern edge of Gdansk Bay on the Baltic coast, and is Poland’s principal seaport. From a trading base for the once-mighty Teutonic Knights to the birthplace of modern Poland, the city drips history. Today Gdansk, with its painstakingly reconstructed and very charming Old Town, perfectly located at the heart of the coast, is the showpiece of Poland's north. Buildings, boats, beaches and bars do their best to offer something for everyone.

To understand what makes Gdansk and Poland what they are today, a visit the European Solidarity Centre is essential. Visit both the Museum that is loaded with wonderful displays, multimedia and posters, the Gdansk shipyard with its exhibits and sculptures, and possibly enjoy a break at the basement restaurant. Also of historical interest with its small museum and a towering monument to the Polish defenders, is Westerplatte, the historic site where WW II broke out.

Also of interest to many are: the majestic Oliwa Cathedral to experience an awesome organ concert, and St Mary’s church, where those who climb the tower are presented with a breathtaking view of the city. The delightfully sculptured Neptune’s Fountain and the National Art Museum that is home to wide range of displays of not only paintings, but also furniture, gold and tin smithery and pottery are both worth visiting. If you still have time there is the rest of the Tri-City area that also includes Gdynia and Sopot to be explored.

5 Fri 6 Jul 2012 Visby, Sweden 8.00am 5.00pm
Baltic Treasures Cruise Visby, on the island of Gotland that lies off the SE coast of Sweden, is a medieval town of roses, ruins, narrow, winding, lanes, and an amazingly well preserved town wall with 27 of the towers still intact. There are also 200 medieval houses as well as several ancient churches, many of which were built in the 12th century. Another attraction is the beautifully restored Cathedral of St Mary’s. This delightful town certainly gives one the feeling of stepping back in time.

It is not surprising that Visby has been chosen by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. A practical way to visit Visby is by walking, especially in order to explore, not only the delightful buildings but also the fascinating shops. Visit the renowned botanical garden of Visby with a wide variety of flora, and be sure to find one of its most precious treasures, the Ginkgo tree. The floral displays are delightful and a real attraction to visitors.

The medieval harbour of Almedalen is home to the Gunpowder Tower - the oldest building in Visby - the Old Pharmacy and the City hall that was also known as the Wine House. Visitors also take bus trips, or even bicycle tours to explore the countryside, which is also deemed absolutely delightful. The town also has plenty of well-visited and excellent restaurants and bars.

6 Sat 7 Jul 2012 Riga, Latvia 10.00am 5.00pm
Baltic Treasures Cruise Riga is an important seaport and the capital of Latvia that comprises several districts. The most popular among travellers is the Old Town (Vecriga). Its medieval architecture, cobble stone streets, German influenced architecture, magnificent Doma Cathedral with the world famous organ inside, makes the Old Town a most interesting destination. Riga is also full of different parks, many of them extremely picturesque.

The radio and TV tower of Riga at 368.5 m is the tallest structure in Latvia and the Baltic States, and one of the tallest in the European Union, while the tallest office/apartment buildings in Latvia are the main office building of Swedbank known as the Sun Stone and the Panorama Plaza tower complex. Whether you're after extravagant Art Nouveau buildings and manicured 19th-century parks, Riga has plenty of visual stimulation for all tastes.

The Museum of the Occupataion of Latvia is dedicated to the Nazzi and Soviet occupations of Latvia, while the historic Latvian Ethnographic Museum presents 100 hectares of country life as it used to be. Then there is one of the largest and most modern marketplaces on the European continent, the Central Market with an amazing array of shopping opportunities. Also of interest to many is St Peter’s Church that was a Catholic church until 1523, when it turned Lutheran. Its wooden tower was destroyed several times but rebuilt in 1973, so take a lift to the observation platform for spectacular views of the city.

7 Sun 8 Jul 2012 Tallinn, Estonia 12.00pm 6.00pm
Baltic Treasures 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.

8 Mon 9 Jul 2012 St Petersburg, Russia 8.00am overnight
Baltic Treasures 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.

10 Wed 11 Jul 2012 Helsinki, Finland 8.00am 4.00pm
Baltic Treasures 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.

11 Thu 12 Jul 2012 Stockholm, Sweden 8.00am
Baltic Treasures 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.

Marina is in European waters until November 2014, then she crosses the Atlantic to South America, then continues west across the South Pacific. Marina remains in the Pacific, visiting Australia, New Zealand, and many island groups, until returning east to South and North America in late March 2015. From June to October 2015 she ails around the Continent, then heads for South Africa and South America. All cruises are port-intensive, and itineraries are exceptionally attractive.

Accommodation
Most cabins have an outside view, and two-thirds have a private balcony. The standard interior and outside cabins are quite elegant, with twin/queen-size bed and ‘best beds at sea’, bathrobes, plenty of built-in cabinets, flat-screen TV, DVD player, writing desk, satellite phone, wireless Internet, and personal safe. Décor is attractive and muted with dark wood accents. Maid service is twice daily and chocolates come with a nightly turn-down service. Ocean view staterooms have a sofa, separate tub and shower, and full height panoramic windows. Speedy room service is available from a separate in-room dining menu.

Food and Dining
The Grand Dining Room is exactly that, with its high ceiling, chandelier and rich furnishings after the style of Europe’s five-star restaurants. Cuisine is European Continental-style, and menus change daily. Two new gourmet restaurants are Jacques, for Jacques Pépin’s French cuisine, and Red Ginger for Pan-Asian classics. The other specialty restaurants are the signature Polo Grill for steak and seafoods, and Toscana offering genuine Tuscan cuisine and wines. Priveé may be reserved for up to 10 guests, who will savour a gourmand-inspired seven-course Menu Degustation. La Reserve by Wine Spectator is an industry-first onboard wine-tasting centre for gourmands (maximum 24, by reserve and extra charge).

Entertainment
On-shore itineraries are the main daytime fare. However, on the ship, day classes include small-group Microsoft software instruction, use of the Internet, and digital photography - that is, if you are not absorbed in the Library, wine tasting, or relaxing in a top-deck Jacuzzi. Bon Appetit Culinary Centre is the only hands-on cooking school at sea, tutored by Master Chefs. In the evening the ship is filled with music in eight bars and lounges. Entertainment includes a mix of comedians, magicians, classical recitals, and staff entertainers; or your own efforts at karaoke.
