Arrive in Stockholm and transfer to your hotel. The "Venice of the North", spanning 14 small islands at the outflow of Lake Malar into the Baltic, Stockholm is the largest city in Scandinavia and architecturally one of the finest in the world, with broad streets, waterside parks and many pedestrian walkways. For a taste of the city, take a walking tour of Old Town, and particularly the Royal Palace and beautiful Riddarholm Church; take in the views from the observation deck in the Town Hall; or visit one of the Skeppsholmen Museums, including Skeppsholm Church (1842), the Museum of Architecture, the Museum of East Asian Art and the Modern Museum. A main attraction near the center of town is the Vasa Museum, on the island of Djurgarden, displaying the almost fully intact 64-gun warship Vasa, that sank on her maiden voyage in 1628.

Today head to the port to begin your Wine Cruise aboard the Regent Seven Seas Splendor, your home for the next 7 nights.

Day 7: 07/02/2022 - Helsinki, Finland

The capital of Finland, Helsinki is also the cultural, commercial and political center of Finland. Helsinki is an easily-navigated city and an architectural delight. Helsinki is laid out with spacious streets interspersed with many gardens and parks. Wide streets and nearby islands add to Helsinki's visual appeal. Beautiful neo classical buildings surround town squares and the cathedral is probably the most recognized of all Helsinki landmarks.

Day 8: 07/03/2022 - St. Petersburg, Russia

St. Petersburg was the capital of the Russian Empire for over 200 years. Peter the Great's "Window on Europe" is known as Russia's artistic and intellectual center. Tour the many cathedrals, including St. Isaac's Cathedral, with floors of different-colored marble and a remarkable array of frescoes; and the iconic Church of the Savior of the Spilled Blood. Noteworthy historic sites include The Peter and Paul Fortress, the first edifice built in the city and final resting place of the Romanovs; and, further afield, the remarkable Peterhof palace. For cultural perspective, take in a ballet and the world-class Hermitage Museum. To complete your Russian experience, take a day trip to Moscow or a half-day trip to Catherine's Palace in the countryside.

Day 9: 07/04/2022 - St. Petersburg, Russia

Enjoy an extra day to explore all St. Petersburg has to offer!

Day 10: 07/05/2022 - Tallinn, Estonia

On the southern coast of the Gulf of Finland lies Tallinn, the capital and main seaport of Estonia. Though the city has been bombed and pillaged many times throughout the ages, much of the town as it was in medieval times remains. Atmospheric streets serve as home to the palaces of Castle Hill. Ancient convents, steepled churches and handsome guild houses are all preserved as they were in Tallinn's Old Town area, which was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Day 11: 07/06/2022 - Klaipeda, Lithuania

Klaipeda, or Memel, in Lithuania is situated at the mouth of the Curonian Lagoon where it flows into the Baltic Sea. During World War II, the city was captured by the Soviet Red Army. Unlike the rest of East Prussia, the Memel Territory was not considered part of the Soviet occupation zone, and was incorporated into the Lithuanian SSR. The city began to develop cultural activities in the 1970s and 1980s, such as the introduction of the Sea Festival cultural tradition.

Day 12: 07/07/2022 - Gdansk, Poland

Step into colorful and masterfully restored Old Town Gdansk and experience the grandeur of this once powerful member of the Hanseatic League. Marvel at the exquisite architecture. Stroll the entire length of Ulica Diuga (Long St.) stopping to visit St. Mary's Church, which took 150 years to build, and its Astronomical Clock, from 1460. Browse through the museums, shops and galleries. Seek out quality amber, embroidered linens, modern silver jewelry, and fine woolen sweaters. Admire the grand houses, the Green and the Golden Gates on the Royal Road. Try a sip of vodka distilled and served with real flecks of gold.

Day 13: 07/08/2022 - Copenhagen, Denmark (Disembark Ship)

Copenhagen, the royal capital of Denmark, is one of Europe`s oldest capitals. It was a fishing village until the middle of the 12th century, but then grew in importance after being fortified in 1167. Because of its harbor, it soon became a place of commercial importance. Copenhagen has a long history well integrated with today`s modern life. Theaters, museums, art galleries and musical entertainment are among the attractions that make Copenhagen memorable. Return to the U.S
