Birthday – A Celebratory Country-Hopping Cruise in the Baltic Sea

from Travemuende to Hamburg

Cruise EUR1322

27.05.2018 - 27.05.2018

0 days (0 days cruise only)

    Tsar Peter the Great wanted to create a window to the west – and left St. Petersburg, a city full of breathtaking architecture, to posterity. Plenty of royal history and a charming old district enable Stockholm to cast its spell on you, and former Hanseatic cities such as Tallinn and Visby will delight you with their historic alleys. A mighty fortress in Poland tells of the age of the crusaders. And on board, you can look forward to a glittering birthday party for the EUROPA – vivid impressions throughout the Mare Balticum.

    Please note that your choosen cruise is conducted in German only. All printed matters are available in German. Nevertheless our crew is fluent in English.
