Each destination along the picturesque northern shores of Europe offers new adventures and experiences that guests will treasure for a lifetime.
In the span of 10 nights, and in the company of The Smithsonian Collection by Smithsonian Journeys lecturer and world history expert Dr. Michael Boll, guests may witness the world-renowned Hermitage Museum in Russia, which holds the largest collection of paintings on Earth, as well as Helsinki’s imposing fortress, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Suomenlinna Island, from the comfort of a private boat tour.
In Stockholm, guests may stroll along the narrow, twisting alleys and cobblestone streets to experience the bohemian atmosphere of the charming houses that date from the 16th to the 19th centuries, before visiting the world’s first permanent ice bar.
And in Klaipéda, you can explore the beauty and tragedy of Lithuania past and present during visits to Kretinga’s Church of the Annunciation, and the historic mansion and museum of Count Tiskevicius. This is before arriving in Amsterdam, where you may choose to extend your luxury vacation with a 3-night Post-Cruise Land Program for a nominal cost.
