Enjoy two relaxing days at sea as Voyager sets sail for wonderful Copenhagen, the city of Hans Christian Andersen whose mesmerising tale of The Little Mermaid is immortalised in the famous statue residing in its harbour. With a fascinating Viking heritage, Denmark is one of the world’s oldest kingdoms. Discover the majestic palaces of Christiansborg or Frederiksberg, or perhaps enjoy a stroll around the beautiful Tivoli Gardens, where thrilling rides compete with spectacular flora for your undivided attention.

AT SEA 6TH MAY
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN - 7TH MAY 8:00AM - 5:00PM

Head out on deck as Voyager sails through an archipelago of hundreds of islands to reach Sweden’s elegant capital, built on 14 islands. The heart of the city, Gamla Stan, is a well-preserved medieval delight. Explore a maze of alleyways and historic houses as you stroll amongst cobbled lanes which follow the original street plan dating back to 1252. Another exciting option is a visit to the Vasa Museum to marvel at the Vasa, a 17th century manof- war which sank in 1628 on its maiden voyage.

TALLINN, ESTONIA - 8TH MAY 12:00PM - 6:30PM
Tallinn-Estonia-10.jpg

Estonia’s historic capital is one of the most completely preserved medieval cities in Europe, whose enchanting Old Town boasts imposing Gothic spires, winding cobbled streets and an abundance of grand architecture. Built in typical Russian Revival style, when Estonia was part of the Russian Empire, the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is a stunning sight, replete with its impressive onion domes.

ST PETERSBURG, RUSSIA - 9TH MAY 11:00AM (OVERNIGHT) - 11TH MAY 6:00PM
hermitage-st-petersberg.jpg

Built from nothing by Peter the Great, St Petersburg flourished and grew into Russia’s imperial capital. This magnificent city, set on the River Neva, is Voyager’s next call and you’ll have ample opportunities to explore during a two-night stay in port. Take in the sights as you walk along Nevsky Prospekt - St Petersburg’s main avenue and Russia’s most famous street that cuts through the heart of the city and is lined with breathtaking landmarks. Mustsee sights include the world-renowned Hermitage Museum, which houses more than 2.7 million works of art, Catherine’s Palace at Pushkin and the grand Peterhof Palace, surrounded by impressive gardens and likened to the Palace of Versailles.

HELSINKI, FINLAND - 12TH MAY 8:00AM - 2:00PM
Uspenski-Cathedral-Helsinki-Finland-6.jpg

Voyager’s next port of call is Helsinki ‘The Daughter of the Baltic.’ This harbourside city was founded in 1550 and became Finland’s capital in 1812. Here you can admire neoclassical architecture, much of which was erected when the country was under Tsarist rule. Highlights include the brilliant-white Lutheran Cathedral and the striking Russian Orthodox Uspenski Cathedral, with its deep-red façade and green-and-gold domes. The majestic central Senate Square, modelled after St Petersburg’s, is another architectural triumph.

AT SEA 13TH MAY
WARNEMÜNDE, GERMANY - 14TH MAY 8:30AM - 10:00PM
warnemunde.jpg

Voyager’s final port of call is Warnemünde, one of Germany’s most popular beach resorts and your gateway to Berlin, the capital of reunified Germany. Since the fall of its famous wall, Berlin has undergone some dramatic changes, yet, between an array of neoclassical buildings and some of the world’s greatest new architecture you’ll uncover constant reminders of the division and conflict that loom large in Berlin’s history. From Warnemünde you can also discover the Hanseatic heritage of the cities of Rostock and Lubeck.

KIEL CANAL TRANSIT, - 15TH MAY
keil-canal.jpg

The world’s busiest artificial waterway, the Kiel Canal stretches 98 kilometres, linking the North Sea with the Baltic. Voyager transits this fascinating canal today as she makes her way back to historic Portsmouth.
