Where we sail.

From imperial St. Petersburg to Helsinki’s Design District, a Baltic vacation with Cunard unlocks a world where the old meets the new. Where extraordinary contrasts await around every corner – and at every port. A journey that begins the moment you step aboard and which you’ll remember long after you return.

St. Petersburg.

Whether admiring its iconic imperial palaces or crossing one of its 342 canal bridges, St. Petersburg offers a fascinating glimpse into Russia’s revolutionary past, coupled with a vibrant arts scene.

Helsinki.

Famed for its foraged food and functional design, Helsinki is Finland’s creative heart, offering art, boutique shopping and Michelin-Star dining against a backdrop of neo-classical architecture.

Riga.

With its cobbled streets, Gothic architecture and 3000-stall market, Riga’s colorful history is plain to see, but this ancient city is equally cosmopolitan, with lively cafes and contemporary galleries.

Tallinn.

A city of contrasts, Tallinn’s modern dining and cultural scene are as vibrant as the city’s UNESCO-protected old town, offering stunning medieval architecture and a thriving culinary movement.

Copenhagen.

Denmark’s urban capital exudes cool. Whether exploring its sprawling streets by bike or strolling around its colorful harbor, this hub of Michelin-Star gastronomy is a design lovers’ dream.

Stockholm.

Spread across 14 islands, stylish Stockholm is a celebration of the old and the new, where historic charm offsets mindful design and perfectly preserved fairy-tale buildings line ancient cobblestone streets.

Warnemünde.

With its salt-white sandy beaches and historic fishermen houses, a port call to the picturesque resort of Warnemünde offers a glimpse into one of the Baltic Sea’s most beautiful coastal escapes.

Visby.

Nestled in Sweden’s Gotland, Visby’s cobbled streets connect a labyrinth of Gothic ruins and medieval churches, where centuries of history coexist with colorful candy-hued houses.

Exploring your destination starts at sea.

With guest speakers aboard every Cunard cruise, your exploration of the Baltics begins before you even step ashore. Join esteemed historians, oceanographers and astronomers, who will take you on a fascinating journey of life in the Baltic Sea.

It’s your world, to savor your own way.
