The atmosphere on board is sure to be exciting from the outset as you and
your fellow guests choose between two options for each call, in five different
countries, to ‘steer the ship’ and create your own itinerary! With everything
from familiar favourites brimming with attractions; to undiscovered gems just
waiting to be explored; and even a potential Fred. Olsen maiden call; you’re
sure to be captivated all the way. Which destinations will win your vote?
You’ll get the chance to select a Dutch delight first of
all. Opt for Amsterdam and you’ll find yourself in a
world of stylish galleries and historical landmarks,
linked by elegant canals and bridges. Alternatively, go
for Rotterdam and capture the hype surrounding one
of Europe’s most enterprising cities. The Markthal and
Cube Houses are attractions you won’t want to miss.
In Denmark, give Copenhagen the nod and you’ll find
many highlights to discover, including the Little
Mermaid Statue and the colourful Nyhavn district. Or
charming Hundested offers traditional Viking displays
on the quayside, and a tour combining Kronborg
Castle, the M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark and
the city of Elsinore.
On to Estonia, with Tallinn and Saaremaa your
choices. Choose the fairytale capital and you’ll find
an array of attractions, including the medieval spires
of the UNESCO-listed Old Town. For an island option,
Saaremaa’s top attractions are Kuressaare Castle and
the legendary Kaali meteorite craters. An overnight
stay in St Petersburg is next, with plenty of time for
highlights such as Peterhof Palace.
After all that you’ll head to Finland. Will the vote go to
Helsinki? The capital city houses a collection of
museums, galleries and other landmarks, and bursts
at the seams with natural beauty too. Or maybe a
maiden call will win the voters’ hearts. In the
undiscovered island city of Kotka, you can explore
fascinating history and beautiful surroundings at the
Langinkoski Imperial Lodge – once Russian Emperor
Alexander III’s summer retreat – or uncover
enchanting parks and gardens.
Lastly, your ship will reach Germany, where your
final decision takes effect. Travemünde is an
enticing option, with Braemar able to dock close to
charming streets laden with traditional shops and
cafés. It’s also gateway to Hanseatic Lübeck.
Meanwhile, Wismar is one of Germany’s most
photogenic destinations, with landmarks such as
the Alter Hafen (Old Harbour), Bürgerpark, and the
Altstadt (Old Town), where the Market Square is a
great spot to admire the city’s fine architecture.
You’ll then have a day to savour the scenic, sizerestricted
Kiel Canal – a real treat to round off your
journey in style.
