Helpful Tips to Know Before You Go

  • Research ahead of time to plan which currencies to bring. Depending on your port of call, and the excursions you choose, cash may or may not be necessary – but if it is, you’ll want to have some of the correct kind on hand. Otherwise, your card will suffice.
  • Scandinavia & Baltic cruise itineraries offer an abundance of exciting ports to explore. To make the most of your journey, consider planning ahead and selecting the ports you'd like to visit.
  • While July and August are prime months for cruising in this picturesque region, they come with a vibrant atmosphere. The weather is excellent, but the popularity of these months can result in larger crowds and higher costs. Opting for a cruise during a quieter, less crowded month could be a wonderful choice, allowing you to enjoy the trade-off of pleasant weather and a more tranquil voyage.
  • If you want to see the aurora borealis, September and October are some of the best months, as these are still popular Scandinavia cruising months and enjoy frequent sights of the northern lights.
  • Pack warm clothes that layer well. These regions are breathtakingly beautiful, but can be very cold. You’ll want to wrap up warm to see the incredible sights that await you.

Things To Do

  • Witness the aurora borealis. When you travel to regions like Iceland, Norway, or the far north of Sweden, you’ll venture into the Arctic Circle, where the incredible spectacle of the northern lights can be seen in the sky. Caused by charged particles from the sun hitting our planet’s magnetic field, this celestial light-show is not to be missed.
  • At the right time of year, experience the Polar Summer phenomenon known as the Midnight Sun – full days where the sun doesn’t set at all, and the sun will shine just as brightly at midnight as it does during the day.
  • Behold breathtaking fjords. In Norway and other destinations, you’ll have the opportunity to set your eyes on the immense natural beauty of these waterways and the dramatic cliffs and slopes that flank them. Kayak through the waters, take a tour, or simply watch from the deck of your cruise ship.
  • Explore spectacular cities. From the artistic haven of Stockholm to the historic marvels of Tallinn or Copenhagen, your Scandinavia & Baltic cruise is sure to take you to a number of magnificent cities, each with their attendant charms and wonders to discover.
  • Spot inspiring wildlife. From multiple species of whales in the waters and thousands of seabirds to bears and elk and moose, the regions you visit will have a wide variety of fauna in residence. Take whale-spotting boat tours or visit wildlife centres, and keep your camera at the ready.
  • Try local cuisine. Try a Smörgåsbord in Sweden or Denmark, enjoy a delicious Flækesteg pork roast, sample game like reindeer and elk and even bear sausage, try the meatballs in every port, and explore a vast array of baked goods in local cafés. Danish pastries are famous for a reason, after all, and they’re not the only ones.
