To the Baltics & Beyond with Azamara – July 2022

We love cruising on Azamara and you will too!  Join us in July 2022 aboard the stunning Azamara Pursuit as we cruise from Copenhagen Denmark to Stockholm Sweden

July 6, 2022 – July 16, 2022

Your journey begins in colorful Copenhagen, where modern creativity flourishes. Then, it’s off to Gdansk for an unforgettable overnight stay. Here — in the amber capital of the world — spend your days touring medieval castles and uncovering the city’s fascinating history, and your evenings strolling the bustling waterfront promenade or dining on fresh seafood. Next, we’ll visit Klaipeda, Lithuania and Riga, Latvia, where a late-night departure means more time for seaside sands and Art Nouveau skylines.

After a day spent relaxing on your boutique hotel at sea, arrive in St. Petersburg, Russia, for three days of exploration and adventure. Grandiose and historic, St. Petersburg is Russia’s iconic modern metropolis. Become absorbed in the artistic atmosphere of the Hermitage, tour historic palaces, and take in a breathtaking ballet in a beautiful theater. While visiting, be sure to visit one of St. Petersburg’s many stolovayas (canteens) for a meal that is as social as it is authentic.

You’ll say “Da svedanya” to St. Petersburg for an overnight cruise to Tallinn, Estonia. Here, embrace cafe culture, cycle through secluded neighborhoods, or sample a few local brews. Your voyage then concludes in chic Stockholm — an ever-evolving cultural hub where the next adventure is just around the corner. 


Discover the magic that is Azamara


Itinerary

July 6 – Depart from Copenhagen Denmark

Fairy-tale architecture and avant-garde modern designs create an enchanting atmosphere in Scandinavia’s largest city. Copenhagen’s quality of life is exceptional, with countless green spaces and bicycle paths—offering you every opportunity to take in the culture and cuisine of the City of Spires.


July 7 & July 8 – Gadansk, Poland

Gdansk Poland old town

The 1,000-year-old port city of Gdańsk was devastated during WWII, but there are still many impressive sights. Wander through cobblestone streets and mazes of red-brick buildings to discover the Upland Gate, St. Mary’s Church, the medieval Gdańsk Crane, the Great Arsenal, and the Amber Museum and National Museum. Then relax at a beer garden and take in the beautiful coastline.


July 9 – Klaipeda, Lithuania

Klaipeda, Lithuania

Walk the cobblestoned Old Town in Klaipėda and you’ll see its German heritage in the architecture, beginning at Theatre Square where Hitler once spoke. The old warehouses by the Dane River are now pubs and restaurants; try a traditional lunch of fish stew with black bread. Other sites to see include Memelburg Castle, the Ethnographic Fisherman’s Farmstead, and the quaint village of Palanga.


July 10 – Riga, Latvia

Riga, Latvia

Riga’s Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage site and its winding, wobbly lanes are beautiful to wander through. The Museum of the Occupation is fascinating, haunting in parts. The restored 18th-century National Opera House is worthy of a whole evening. The new National Library is a huge glass and steel mountain. And don’t miss an organ recital in The Dome – the organ one of the largest in Europe.


July 11 – at sea

Spend the day sailing in style aboard your boutique hotel at sea. Indulge in a treatment at Sanctum Spa, stay ship shape with a class at our fitness center, or lounge the day away on our sunny pool deck.

In the evening, savor inspired Italian cuisine at Aqualina, or relish in a classic steakhouse experience at Prime C. Plus, you’ll find plenty of exciting evening entertainment, from thrilling shows at Cabaret Lounge to intimate performances in the Living Room.


July 12, July 13 & July 14 – St Petersburg, Russia

St. Petersburg, Russia

Affectionately referred to as the Venice of the North, St. Petersburg is home to an incredibly diverse array of architecture. From golden domed churches to opulent palaces, St. Petersburg is certain to leave you in awe. In particular, don’t miss the Winter Palace, located within the Hermitage complex, one of the world’s largest museums and home to more three million works of art and artifacts!

Our Azamara ship will be parked in downtown St. Petersburg for 2 full nights


July 15 – Tallinn, Estonia

Tallinn, Estonia

Embrace the wonderfully independent spirit of Tallinn. During your visit, take a walk up Toompea hill for a lovely view of Tallinn’s diverse skyline and architecture. Then, visit St. Olav’s Church, believed to have been the world’s tallest building…in 1625. From here, you’re not far from St. Catherine’s Passage, where you’ll discover many delightful craft workshops to explore.


July 16 – Disembark in Stockholm, Sweden

Stockholm Sweden

Experience the best of northern charm in Stockholm. A perfect balance of green space, Scandinavian architecture, and enchanting palaces, Stockholm is the perfect city to relax and explore.
