The cool Baltic region is so hot for 2019

The Baltic is shaping up to be one of the hottest travel destinations for 2019, with Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania on a whole lot of tourism "must do" lists.

Visiting picturesque Helsinki (below) and taking the ferry over to Tallinn is one of my first diary items for the new year.

Oceania Cruises is seeing a surge in bookings to the region with a raft (that's pun, I hope) of stunning 2019 itineraries to the Baltic on offer featuring picturesque ports, immersive culinary tours, overnight stays and fine cuisine.
“Oceania Cruises offers guests the chance to discover exquisite cities along the shores of the Baltic Sea, where they can absorb the region’s rich history and colossal castles," says Steve Odell, SVP & Managing Director Asia Pacific, Oceania Cruises.

"Travellers will love traversing UNESCO World Heritage sites and experiencing the beauty of the Baltic region from the comfort of our mid-sized ships.

“Whether exploring boutique Baltic ports inaccessible to larger vessels such as the mountainous Bodo in Norway (is Norway actually part of the Baltic?), discovering ancient Viking settlements, enjoying a night at the Russian ballet, or exploring the fjords, farms and fishing villages of the Nordic isles, there are many reasons this is the most sought-after region of Europe for savvy travellers right now."
Oceania Cruises offers 18 Baltic and Scandinavian itineraries on board three vessels, ranging from seven to 20 days. Oceania’s port-intensive Baltic voyages feature more extended and overnight stays in ports than most other cruise lines.


Itinerary highlights include a seven-day Baltic Marvels cruise from Stockholm to Copenhagen, with departures in both July and September, visiting ports including Helsinki, St Petersburg, Tallinn and Berlin, and the fortnight-long Opulent Reflections departs Copenhagen in September for Amsterdam, via Helsinki, Tallinn, Stockholm, Poland, Berlin, Sweden and Norway – as well an extended overnight stay in spectacular St Petersburg (one of the world's greatest cities).

Early bird fares are available, together with Oceania Cruises’ packages giving guests free on-board internet as well as a choice of either free shore excursions, a house beverage package, or free shipboard credit.
