Baltic cruises operate from May to September, when the weather
is more predictable. Plan for rain and cool breezes: sunshine and
warmth will be a bonus. We recommend travel during the months of
June and July for the White Nights (those evenings when the sun
doesn't set), whilst in July and August you can expect the best
weather, with temperature highs of anywhere between 15 and
The jewel of any Baltic cruise has to be St Petersburg - we
recommend those with a longer stay: two or even three days. Make
sure you budget for lots of excursions here to make the most of
your visit. Other ports of call will vary from itinerary to
itinerary - from Warnemunde you can take a long day trip to Berlin,
which is a must if you have not visited before.
Each of the Baltic capitals has a different atmosphere and
appeal: you can choose between cultural treasures in museums and
galleries, or venturing out into the countryside to learn more
about daily life and folklore.
