This autumn voyage allows you to explore a host of historic cities once the summer crowds have gone. An overnight stay in St Petersburg is a highlight - discover its domed cathedrals, grand palaces and treasure-trove museums, and perhaps spend an evening at the ballet. You’ll also have the chance to explore fairytale Tallinn, with its winding lanes and baroque palaces, and the welcoming Swedish city of Gothenburg. A day in Copenhagen, home to castles, cafés and cobbled lanes, rounds off our trip.

Day 3 - Gothenburg, Sweden
We arrive late morning in Sweden’s second city. Perhaps wander the cobbled streets of Haga, the city’s oldest district. You’ll find plenty of cafés serving coffee and warm kanelbullar (cinnamon buns - the perfect autumn treat), as well as traditional wooden houses. Museum-wise, you could marvel at the original Viking longship in the Museum of Gothenburg, or view Rembrandt and Picasso masterpieces in the Konstmuseum.
Day 4 - 5 - At sea
Day 6 - 7 - St Petersburg, Russia (overnight)
Founded in 1703 by Peter the Great, St Petersburg is Russia’s cultural heart and the ‘jewel of the Baltic’. We arrive early on day 6 and stay until late afternoon on day 7.
Perhaps opt for a leisurely walking tour taking in opulent Peterhof Palace and the onion-domed Church of Our Saviour on the Spilled Blood. Or visit the Hermitage, one of the world’s greatest museums. As we’re staying overnight, you might choose to spend the evening enjoying a performance at the Russian ballet.
Day 8 - Tallinn, Estonia
Estonia’s fairytale capital is our port of call today. Discover winding cobbled streets, Gothic architecture and pastel-hued merchants’ houses in the UNESCO-protected Old Town, one of Europe’s best-preserved historical centres. Stars of the show include the domed Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and Toompea Castle, with its pink-painted façade.
Just outside the Old Town is another highlight: Kadriorg Palace. This impressive baroque palace was once an imperial summer residence and is surrounded by immaculate gardens. Nowadays, it houses the Art Museum of Estonia’s Russian and Western European collection.
day 9 - At sea
Day 10 - Copenhagen, Denmark
Enjoy a day in Copenhagen. Maybe start with coffee and cake at a café overlooking Nyhavn canal (home to those tall ships and colourful townhouses), before exploring Amalienborg or Christiansborg palaces.
Or perhaps visit the King’s Garden at Rosenborg Castle, where the trees will be starting to display their autumn colours.
Day 11 - Kiel Canal Transit
Today we’ll cruise through serene countryside as we transit the Kiel Canal. One of the world’s busiest waterways, it cuts a path between the North and Baltic seas.
Day 12 - At sea
Day 13 Dover
We arrive back in Dover early this morning, disembarking after breakfast. Upon arrival, your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
