Make your way this morning to the East Anglain port of Harwich, from where Discovery sails early this afternoon. Get to know the ship and your fellow passengers as you begin your journey.
Today is spent at sea, enjoying life on board with all of the wonderful amenities Discovery has to offer.
Discovery arrives this afternoon in "wonderful, wonderful" Copenhagen. Stroll its famous shopping street, Stroget, or perhaps pay a short visit to the world-famous Tivoli Gardens. Alternatively, our optional excursion will introduce you to the city's highlights, including the fabled bronze statuette of the 'Little Mermaid.'
Another day is spent at sea, hopefully cruising in the wonderful light for which the Baltic is renowned.
Awake as Discovery threads her way through Finland's scenic, southwest archipelago, arriving this afternoon in the former capital, Turku. Head ashore to discover the European Capital of Culture in 2011, and perhaps visit the Sibelius Museum, or take a shore excursion to exquisite Naantali with its beautiful wooden houses.
Today we'll arrive in beautiful Tallinn. Step back in time as you explore the enchanting Estonian capital with its perfectly preserved Old Town, winding cobblestone streets full of storybook houses, steepled churches and ancient buildings, all watched over by Toompea Castle.
Days Seven to Nine
Perhaps the highlight of the cruise, today you dock in glorious St Petersburg. Discover the incomparable Hermitage Museum, the Haymarket area of the city still redolent with scenes from Dostoyevsky's novels, and the Marinsky Theatre, home to the world renowned 'Kirov' Ballet. You'll also have the opportunity discover magical Moscow on an overnight excursion, or to visit the fabled Summer Palace at Petrodvorets.
Discovery cruises back into the Baltic, heading for home.
The historic port city of Gdynia, once the mightiest in Poland, welcomes Discovery this morning. Part of the 'Tri-City' alongside elegant spa Sopot and fabled Gdansk, Gdynia is a fascinating port of call, set on the picturesque Bay of Gdansk, and provides the opportunity for some wonderful shore excursions.
This morning Discovery arrives in Warnemunde, gateway to the city of Rostock. Discover the charming gabled houses and historic Neuer Markt, or join the optional excursion to Berlin. Take in the city's fascinating history - from the Brandenburg Gate and the great 1926 Olympic Stadiumand to Hitler's Bunker and Checkpoint Charlie - before returning to Discovery, ready to sail, this evening.
Today's highlight will be Discovery's transit of the famous Kiel Canal, which connects the Baltic with the North Sea, saving over 250 miles' sailing around Denmark. Enjoy a final evening aboard, as you head for home.
Discovery returns to Harwich, at the end of a wonderful cruise.
In 2013, 20,000-tonne Discovery sets out on a series of exciting departures from ports around the UK, on her first season of cruises. With her classic profile, eight passenger decks, and accommodation for 700 passengers, Discovery is a smaller ship built in traditional style, and offers the perfect 'home from home' for a memorable holiday.
