A&K announces new Baltic Expeditionary Cruise
Follow in the wake of Viking mariners and Nordic explorers on Abercrombie & Kent’s new luxury expedition cruise of the Baltic. Travelling aboard Le Dumont d’Urville, a soon-to-be-launched all-balcony mega-yacht, this voyage will encompass the grand historic cities and fascinating cultures of seven Baltic countries: Denmark, Poland, Lithuania, Sweden, Estonia, Finland and Russia.
As with all A&K luxury expedition cruises, guests sail with the company’s award-winning Expedition Team who lead with a depth of expertise and insight found nowhere else. An engaging enrichment program is tailored by the best experts in their respective fields revealing the destinations visited in depth and with singular insight.
A&K’s innovative Design Your Day concept is also a feature giving guests greater choice and the ability to personalise certain days of their journey. For example, in Gdansk, Poland travellers can choose between a guided walking tour through the Old Town, a reflective WWII immersion at the Museum of the Second World War and a former concentration camp, or a fascinating insight to the Polish Solidarity Movement of the 1980s visiting the Solidarity Centre where the August Agreements were signed.
And in the Finnish capital, Helsinki, choices include a privately guided boat trip and visit to the 18th-century Fortress of Suomenlinna, a cultural treasure and World Heritage Site, or a traditional Finnish sauna experience and nature walk.
Other noteworthy excursions include a rooftop walk and art tour in Stockholm, a visit to a former Soviet nuclear missile base in Lithuania, an Estonian vodka tasting event, a Russian cooking class in St Petersburg and a Nordic cuisine sampler with local providores. Special access to the magnificent Catherine Palace before opening hours is arranged as well as an exclusive evening visit to the Hermitage Museum.
Along the way, travellers are invited to participate in enriching discussions with guest speakers that include Nobel Peace Prize recipient and former president of Poland Lech Walesa, as well as writer and former interpreter to USSR president Mikhail Gorbachev, Pavel Palazhchenko.
The all-inclusive journey comprises nine nights aboard the ship plus three nights to cap off the voyage at Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St Petersburg.
