1 Arrive Stockholm, Embark Ship
Stretched across 14 islands linked by bridges, Stockholm is the perfect place to start our expedition. We meet you on arrival and welcome you on board your ship. Your first night begins as it should, with sparkling and a relaxed dinner. Stay 12 Nights: MS Hebridean Sky (D)
2 Stockholm
Your first full day in the Swedish capital begins with a tour around the Old Town. Discover the medieval Royal Palace and visit the Vasa Museum, home to the 17th-century warship which sunk on her maiden voyage. This afternoon, spend some time visiting Stockholm City Hall, a 1920s architectural landmark which dominates the city's waterfront. (B/L/D)

4 St Petersburg
Two days have been put aside for your St Petersburg discovery, and for good reason; the city is filled with incredible landmarks. You'll begin at the State Hermitage Museum then head to Catherine Palace where a walk through the adjoining gardens provides a welcome breather. Later, a Signature Experience awaits. (B/L/D)

Signature Experiences:
  • A highlight of the day is a private Russian ballet performance at the theatre within the Hermitage Museum.
5 St Petersburg
Thankfully, our ship has remained docked in St Petersburg overnight so not only will you wake up to the gilded domes, you will also have plenty more time to explore. Head to Peter and Paul Cathedral and onto the Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood before spending a relaxed afternoon at Peterhof Palace and Park. Often described as the ‘Russian Versailles', the series of palaces and leafy gardens, with their glittering fountains, is a haven in contrast to the Soviet-era buildings of St Petersburg. (B/L/D)

7 Pärnu
In the rarely visited harbour city of Pärnu, choose your sightseeing adventure. (B/L/D)

Freedom of Choice:

8 Rīga
You're sure to enjoy your day in the Latvian capital. (B/L/D)

Freedom of Choice:
