Detailed Port Descriptions

Amsterdam, Netherlands | Amsterdam, the beautiful capital of the Netherlands, has the wonderful atmosphere of a 17th-century city combined with the contemporary character of a modern metropolis. It is a treasure chest of superb architecture and is famous for its canals and extraordinary museums. Highlights include the towers and steeples, considered to be some of the city's loveliest features.   Berlin (Warnemunde), Germany | For so many years a city divided, Berlin is now united, bringing together cultures and languages from throughout the world. We'll access this excitingly eclectic city from Warnemünde, a charming old fishing town located at the mouth of the Warnow River.   Helsinki, Finland  | Occupying a peninsula and several islands, this capital city's stunning structures surround some of the most spectacular bays you could ever hope to find. Stroll down broad, tree-lined streets, or take in the amazing neo-classically designed architecture in Senate Square.   St.Petersburg, Russia | Although reportedly built to resemble such Western cities as London, Paris, and Vienna, one look at St. Petersburg's regal palaces and vast public squares is enough to tell you that it is truly in a class of its own. If you're fortunate enough to be in St. Petersburg in June, revel in the city's famous "white nights," when the boundless night sky is never completely dark.   Tallinn, Estonia | Tallinn has remained remarkably unchanged since its founding in 1154 A.D. The preservation of this city's Old World charm enables visitors to enjoy architectural marvels of centuries past, such as the soaring towers of Toompea Castle and the exquisite Russian Orthodox Cathedral. The exception is the delightfully modern pink Parliament building, visible from Palace Square.   Stockholm, Sweden | No fewer than 50 bridges connect this Swedish capital's 14 islands to its mainland. Visit the many parks, museums, and palaces or make your way through Gamla Stan, or Old Town, packed with historic buildings, shops, and cafés.   Copenhagen, Denmark | Whether strolling through blooming flowers in Tivoli Gardens, witnessing the changing of the guard at Amalienborg Palace or touring Kronborg Castle—the setting of Shakespeare's Hamlet— it's easy to see why this once-humble fishing village grew to become the capital of Denmark.
