Itinerary

Day 1 - Southampton, England
Southampton is a bustling port city bursting with history, as well as shopping opportunities, great restaurants, and superb pubs. Located on England’s southern coast, the area has a deep connection with WWII, having been used as a staging area for the attack on D-Day. It’s also well-known to be the home port of the Queen Mary 2. Today, the city is largely defined by its universities and retail shopping. The real sightseeing, however, happens when you use this port as a jumping off point for attractions found outside, yet relatively close to the city. For instance, London is but a little over an hour away by train. You can also take a ferry to the Isle of Wight, an English holiday favorite with 25 miles of coastline, sand dunes and dramatic white cliffs. While on your Southampton cruise you can also visit the nearby, quaint town of Windsor where you can visit the many boutiques of High Street or enjoy a tour of historic Windsor Castle.

Day 2 - At Sea - Cruising

Day 3 - Skagen, Denmark
This Danish port town is rife with nautical charm. Rugged and beautiful, Skagen is a favored tourist destination, especially in the summer months with its long coastline and pleasant atmosphere. Popularized by an influx of Scandinavian artists in the mid-19th century who were drawn by its radiance, the town enjoys a wealth of cultural treasures. A great way to learn about the artists who have settled here is to plan a trip during your Skagen cruise to Anchers Hus. This was the home of Michael and Anna Anchers that has remained unchanged since they first lived there. You can see some of their works, the studios where they painted and a glimpse into how they lived. If you want to experience Skagen’s formidable outdoor offerings, take a tractor ride to Grenen, the geographical tip of Denmark where the Skagerrak Sea and the Kattegat Sea meet. At the end of your day before gazing into a picturesque sunset, make a stop at the Bolcheriet Candy Shop for a tour on how candies and caramel are created and choose between 32 varieties to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Day 4 - At Sea - Cruising

Day 5 - Stockholm, Sweden
No fewer than 50 bridges connect this Swedish capital’s 14 islands to its mainland. The country is modern, dynamic, and ever-evolving. It may be liberal and forward-looking when it comes to the collective attitude, but it’s rich in history too. On your Europe cruise, visit the many parks, museums, and palaces or make your way through Gamla Stan, or Old Town, packed with historic buildings, shops, and cafés. The world’s first open-air museum, Skansen, is here, located on the island of Royal Djurgården and there’s the fascinating maritime Vasa Museum in town.

Day 6 - Visby, Sweden
Visby is a former Viking city on the island of Gotland in the middle of the Baltic Sea. This walled city is considered to be the best-persevered fortified commercial town in Northern Europe, with numerous excellent examples of medieval art and architecture. Nearby you'll find attractive beaches and pleasant rolling hills and countryside.

Day 7 - At Sea - Cruising

Day 8 - Copenhagen, Denmark
Whether strolling through blooming flowers in Tivoli Gardens, witnessing the changing of the guard at Amalienborg Palace, or touring Kronborg Castle—the setting of Shakespeare's Hamlet—it's easy to see why Copenhagen grew to become the capital of Denmark. And, if you believe all the survey reports about this cheerful city, not only will you find yourself in one of the most cosmopolitan Nordic capitals on this Copenhagen cruise, but you’ll be elbow to elbow with some of the happiest locals on Earth.

With picturesque townhouses splashed in more color than a box of crayons, this delightful destination has a real flair for design. As you amble through the streets of Copenhagen you may begin to experience ‘hygge’-- a concept of gentle, soothing coziness, and comfort that’s infused in the lifestyle and culture. The quaint cobblestone streets, scenic landscapes, and charming cafes will attest to the country’s dedication to this concept of welcoming warmth and kindness. Relax on a short boat ride down its waterways passed scenic landmarks old and new. And, depending on the time of year, you may just catch many of the exhibits and works of art on public display in the city parks, gardens, and zoos.

Day 9 and Day 10 - Oslo, Norway
Sail across the Oslo Fjord and you sail back in time to 1050 A.D. This capital city’s lavish history can be uncovered at the Viking Ship Museum and the Kon-Tiki Museum. Cross the drawbridge to the formerly impenetrable Akershus Castle and meander through the famous Vigeland Sculpture Park before returning to the present day.
