Day 1 - Southampton
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home, for your journey to Southampton, where our staff will greet you and assist with embarking Braemar (3T+) in preparation for a late evening sailing.
Day 2 - At sea
Spend a relaxing day at sea; the ideal opportunity to familiarise yourself with the fantastic onboard facilities.
Day 3 - Kiel Canal Transit, Germany
This morning we sail the Kiel Canal. Officially the world’s busiest artificial waterway, this extraordinary canal runs for almost 100km through Scheswig-Holstein in Germany from Brunsbuttel to Kiel-Holtenau linking the North Sea with the Baltic. The Kiel Canal is the trade link between the Baltic countries and the rest of the world.
Day 4 - Rønne, Denmark
We dock in Rønne this morning on the Danish island of Bornholm. Spend the day exploring the charming cobbled streets lined with half-timbered houses and interesting museums. Although large amounts of the town were destroyed during the war, it was wisely rebuilt during the post-war years, and many buildings look older than they actually are. During the hotter months Rønne offers vast stretches of sand, both to the south and north of the town.
Day 5 - Visby, Sweden
Your island hopping continues in Sweden, visiting the UNESCO-listed Visby, ‘city of roses and ruins’, on the beautiful island of Gotland. Tucked away within the medieval walls of Gotland’s only town you’ll discover a living museum of centuries-old ruins, old merchants’ houses and magnificent churches including St Mary’s Cathedral. Visby’s wonderful Old Town is home to 15 of Visby’s 17 medieval churches, the Burmeister House - the town’s oldest merchant house - and a beautiful botanical garden. Visby is also your gateway to discovering Gotland’s pretty fishing villages and unspoilt scenery on an extensive tour of the island.
Day 6 - Stockholm
Your cruise continues to Stockholm. There are no less than 14 islands and 40 bridges in Sweden's stately and spacious capital, a picturesque canvas of waterways, lakes and canals. With ample time to explore Stockholm in depth, you can tick off attractions such as the Skansen Open-air Museum and ABBA: The Museum, the historic Gamla Stan district and the Royal Palace - where you might be lucky enough to witness the changing of the guard. The chance to see sights such as Strandvägen and the Opera House via the city’s many waterways on a serene boat tour is not to be missed too.
Day 7 - Cruising Stockholm Archipelago - Mariehamn, Finland
The beautiful Stockholm Archipelago is the second largest of its kind in the Baltic Sea and the largest in Sweden. This stunning part of Scandinavia offers spectacular views of some 30,000 beautiful islands and islets. In the afternoon you will arrive in Mariehamn, a small town founded in 1861 by Tsar Alexander II when Åland and Finland were part of the Russian Empire.
Day 8 - At sea
Day 9 - Copenhagen
This morning we arrive in Denmark’s cosmopolitan capital Copenhagen. Much of Copenhagen’s most interesting and most popular destinations are either within the city centre or a short walk away, so there is always something to see or experience. Must-visit attractions include the historic Christianborg and Amelienborg Palaces, The Little Mermaid sculpture at Langelinje Pier, Kronborg Castle and Rosenborg Castle.
Days 10-11 - At sea
Take two full days to relax on board, as we cruise back towards Southampton. Perhaps take the opportunity to unwind with a massage in the spa or enjoy a dip in one of the pools.
Day 12 Southampton
We disembark after breakfast and you will be met and guided to your Titan vehicle, for the journey home.
