Experience the cultural rebirth of the Baltic states, the magnificent imperial riches of St. Petersburg, and the luminous “White Nights of Summer” on this remarkable, six-country, eight-night Baltic Sea cruise. Enjoy a rare opportunity to hear presentations by former President of Poland Lech Wałęsa and noted author and scholar Sergei N. Khrushchev, son of Soviet Union Premier Nikita Khrushchev. Cruise aboard the five-star, 92-stateroom Le Dumont d’Urville from Copenhagen, Denmark, to Stockholm, Sweden, with an excursion included in every port. Immerse yourself in the historic epicenter of the Solidarity movement in Gdańsk, Poland; revel in the medieval charms of Tallinn, Estonia, and Visby, Sweden, both UNESCO World Heritage sites; and discover the stunning architecture of cosmopolitan Helsinki, Finland. Enjoy two days exploring regal St. Petersburg, including a specially-arranged early entry into the world‑acclaimed State Hermitage Museum, a visit to Peter and Paul Fortress, and an excursion to Catherine’s Palace and Petrodvorets, two UNESCO World Heritage sites.
