Trip overview

Begin your journey in London (Southampton) and set sail for Kristiansund aboard Oceania Cruises’ Nautica. Soak in Norway’s laid back vibe while admiring the colorful wooden houses and partaking in some of the town’s famous klippfisk (dried cod). Be inspired by the Viking spirit in Oslo as you take in the innovative architecture and sample the delectable seafood. Find out why the Danes are considered some of the happiest people as you meander down the cobblestone streets of Copenhagen. Relax in Travemünde, a seaside resort with delicious marzipan and beautiful churches, and bask in the magnificent architecture of Riga. Tour Tallinn’s underground passageways as you learn about its historic past and explore the vibrant city, modern architecture, and open-air market of Helsinki before ending in Stockholm.
