Ports of Call
Amsterdam, The Netherlands - Here in Amsterdam, you can decide whether the real masterpieces are the gabled houses that flank graceful canals, or the van Goghs, Rembrandts and Vermeers that cover the walls of the city's grand museums.
Copenhagen, Denmark - Denmark's capital is sophisticated, saucy and friendly. Stroll the fairytale world of Tivoli Gardens to take in bright lights, castles that out-Disney Disney. See the city's 200- year-old Royal Palace, the lively Old Harbor - Hans Christian Andersen lived here. Salute the Little Mermaid, symbol of this light-hearted city.
Helsinki, Finland - Shaped by its bays and isles, it's one of Europe's most scenic capitals. Hear a Sibelius concert, tour across the Arctic Circle to Lapland, land of Santa Claus, reindeer and the Midnight Sun. Buy a birchbark basket.
Keil, Germany - Keil (Hamburg), Germany When most people think of cities, they picture bustling streets, vibrant markets and endless entertainment. And as Germany's second-largest city, Hamburg features all these urban essentials. But with some 1,400 parks and gardens and over 2,300 bridges (more than Amsterdam and Venice combined) Hamburg mixes rural rejuvenation with metropolitan flair.
London, England - In one of the world's great cities, take in bustling Victoria Station, the beauty of Westminster Abbey, the history of Parliament, and the pomp of Buckingham Palace. Oh, and then there are the "Elgin Marbles" at the British Museum and the Crown Jewels in the Tower of London. Or see Baker Street, where Sherlock Holmes is said to have lived. After all (or at least some) of that make what might be the most important stop of all for last, grab a pint at a corner pub. Port tips from our blog
St. Petersburg/Moscow - In Peter the Great's "Window on Europe", head for the fabulous Hermitage, with its renowned art collection from Raphael to Rembrandt, Titian to Tintoretto. Take in a concert--folkloric or grandly operatic. Make a flying trip to Moscow to view monuments from Soviet and pre-Soviet days: Red Square, the Kremlin, St. Basil's Cathedral, Lenin's Tomb.

*Visas are included with most shore excursions. If you wish to explore St. Petersburg on your own, however, a visa will be required; obtaining one can take some time, so please begin the visa process immediately.
Stockholm, Sweden - So much to see in this charming city, sprawled on 18 islands, somtimes called the "Venice of the North." Cruise the sparkling waterways. Watch the snappy changing of the guard at the Baroque Royal Palace. Navigate narrow medieval streets or visit the more modern areas with their own northern european charm. Shop for elegant gifts--glassware, stainless steel. And work up an appetite so you can do justice to the lavish smorgasbords. Age of globalization pro-tip? Sushi; the fish here is very very fresh.
Tallinn, Estonia - Medieval walls and towers still stand tall in Old Town. Stroll and shop along cobblestone streets, walk up to the Baroque palace, drop in at Alexander Nevsky Cathedral to find inspiration in the gleaming mosaics and icons.

TravelSafe.comPlease visit TravelSafe.com for travel insurance information.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
