Abercrombie & Kent Cruising the Baltic Sea: Copenhagen to St Petersburg
29 June to 11 July 2021 with Jann Porter on Le Champlain with 148 guests

This will be my 8th group cruise with Abercrombie & Kent and they have all been wonderful as the expedition team is superb, the ships are new and modern plus we’ve seen interesting and beautiful places. There is great camaraderie when cruising with others, although everyone is quite independent.

The Baltic is a lovely area to cruise as it’s interesting as well as beautiful plus a really calm sea. I’ve cruised the Baltic twice and am really excited about this trip as it’s a fabulous itinerary with great tours included.

THE FOUR SEASONS LION PALACE HOTEL, ST PETERSBURG FROM 8 TO 11 JULY 2021

Guarded by two marble lions at the entrance, this historic hotel sits within the walls of a 19th-century royal palace in the Admiraltey sky district, where the opulent stylings of imperial Russia are alive and well – and every bit as inspiring as they were centuries ago.

The highlights in St Petersburg include access to The Hermitage after hours, early access to Catherine’s Palace, as well as a farewell dinner at Yusopov’s Palace. These are all after hour tours that you mostly only get the opportunity to do one of on other Baltic cruises.
