During the summer months, the citizens of Northern Europe shed their winter wardrobes and flock to lively outdoor festivals, charming sidewalk cafes, and bustling market squares. For travelers, its the best time to experience this region, and because many of the major cities are located along the Baltic Sea, they are easily accessible by cruise ship. One luxury line, Azamara Club Cruises, is reducing rates on its European cruises by up to 50 percent. Our editors like this 12-night cruise sailing round-trip from Copenhagen priced from $3,199 (originally $6,398).
Azamara Club Cruises falls under the umbrella of the deluxe cruise line, Celebrity ? only Azamara takes things up a notch. Guests can expect a high crew-to-passenger ratio, butlers in every stateroom, open seating in dining rooms, and plenty of overnight stops in ports of call ? allowing more time for a meaningful experience. The Azamara Journey embarks on August 5 from Copenhagen, Denmark and will make its first overnight stop in Warnemunde, Germany just a short train ride away from Berlin.
Next up is a refreshing day at sea before a visit to Helsinki, Finland. After, the ship will spend three nights in St. Petersburg, Russia, before arriving in Tallinn, Estonia. Before returning to Copenhagen, the Journey will also dock overnight in Stockholm, Sweden.
