Best of the BalticsOne of Grand Circle Cruise Line’s newest and already extremely popular itineraries takes travelers to seven countries along the briny Baltic Sea: Denmark, Poland, Latvia, Estonia, Russia, Finland, and Sweden. Grand Baltic Sea Voyage spends 13 days exploring these diverse destinations, with ten aboard a 98-passenger, all-suite small ship, the Corinthian. A signature of Grand Circle Cruise Line is that it tries to present worldwide discovery with both an American and local perspective on topics including education, politics, family life, and more. For example, on this itinerary, your Program Director will provide a detailed history of the Soviet occupation in Riga and Tallin, from how residents in both destinations lived during this time, to its effects on the U.S. You’ll also explore St. Petersburg and view some of the city’s royal past, while also learning about the tumultuous relationship between Russia and the U.S.
Grand Circle caters exclusively to mature Americans, so you can rest assured that you’ll be in a group of like-minded travelers. English is also the only language used during tours and presentations—and everything from activities and dining to accommodations—was designed with American travelers in mind.
