PACING: This 14-day cruisetour includes 10 nights / 11 days of cruising and a night each in a centrally located hotel in Copenhagen and Stockholm at the beginning and end of your trip. (The 14 days also includes the day you depart from home and your overnight flight to Europe.) During the cruise, in addition to your arrival and departure cities, you'll visit seven ports of call: Ronne, Bornholm Island (Denmark), Gdansk (Poland), Visby (Sweden), Riga (Latvia - 2 nights), Tallinn (Estonia), St. Petersburg, (Russia - 2 nights), and Helsinki (Finland). Some scenic sailing will be conducted during daylight hours. This cruisetour is moderately paced.

ABOARD SHIP: Cabins aboard the M/Y Variety Voyager are not the same size as those on Vantage river boats, but are typical of the small ships that cruise in these destinations. Please note that due to the vacuum system and size of the ship, excessive amounts of toilet paper cannot be flushed on board. Each bathroom is also equipped with a convenient receptacle for paper disposal, which will be emptied daily by the cabin crew.  

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY: Guided sightseeing involves either walking tours or drives in private air-conditioned motorcoaches, or some combination, with visits to museums and other attractions as noted in the trip detail. There are a number of walking tours into historic city centers. Steps and cobblestones should be expected, as well as occasional steep and/or uneven terrain. This ship and the tours are not suitable for wheelchairs or other mobility aids. This Baltics Capitals cruise tour is not suitable for passengers with walking difficulties. In a few ports, it may be necessary to use tenders or Zodiacs. Please refer to Vantage's wheelchair and handicapped traveler policy. Be advised that the M/Y Variety Voyager does not have an elevator. Please let our Reservations Specialist know when reserving if you require the use of an elevator so that they can work with you to select an alternative tour.

CULTURAL FOCUS: This program offers great cultural opportunities to experience one of the most interesting parts of Europe. In addition to visiting some of the best-preserved medieval cities in Europe, including Visby, Riga, Tallinn, and Stockholm's Old Town, you'll visit Gdansk, Poland, birthplace of the Solidarity movement in Poland, the first step to the collapse of the Soviet Union, and St. Petersburg, where the glories of Peter the Great contrast with post-Soviet Russia. You'll also Helsinki, and the port of Ronne on Denmark's bucolic Bornholm Island. For detail on sightseeing and cultural events, see the Included Tours and Cultural Connections sections and the day-by-day itinerary.
