If you like your cruise to be formal, dressy and upmarket then Cunard could be perfect for you. Their three ships with their distinctive look, offer quality and class and their service matches the same standard. Their white glove service high tea is one of the true highlights of ocean cruising overall and an experience not to miss.

Day 1: Southampton

Begin your cruise in Southampton

Day 2 & 3: At Sea

Day 4: Oslo, Norway

Oslo is the oldest and least populous capital in Scandinavia. The city offers superb theatres, great cafés, and excellent shopping as well as churches, palaces, parks and museums befitting of a capital. The warm, welcoming atmosphere of a small village. A spectacular setting of fjord and forested hill. Oslo really is a wonderful place to explore.

Day 5: At Sea

Day 6: Klaipeda, Lithuania

Standing on the coast of the Baltic Sea, Klaipeda is the third largest city and the largest port in Lithuania, the southernmost of the three Baltic States. You can visit it on selected Baltic cruises along a route that leads to or from St Petersburg.

Day 7: Visby, Sweden

Visby is the largest town on the Swedish island of Gotland, around 55 miles east of the mainland. Set in the Baltic Sea, it appears on selected cruises to St Petersburg that feature a number of Scandinavian calls en route. The smaller isle of Faro is a close neighbour of Gotland, and the two are known for their ‘rauks’ a series of incredible, gnarled limestone formations around the coast that were created during the ice age. Other points of interest on Faro include a lighthouse, a medieval church and its use as a cinematic location; legendary director Ingmar Bergman spent much of his life here, and it features in a number of his films.

Day 8: Tallinn, Estonia

With preserved medieval walls, cobbled squares and towering spires, Tallinn is a fairytale city. Walk the walls and view the towers with fanciful names like "Fat Margaret" and "Peek in the Kitchen." See a colourful folk dance and perhaps shop for fine leather-bound books - a speciality.

Day 9 & 10: St Petersburg, Russia

Russia’s great imperial city, St. Petersburg cannot fail to leave a lasting impression on all who visit. A wonderful opportunity to discover this jewel in the Tsarist crown which still sparkles as brightly as ever. From the magnificent Winter Palace to the Hermitage and the Peter and Paul Museum, a visit to St. Petersburg is a truly classic experience.

Day 11: At Sea

Day 12: Gdynia, Poland

The port of Gdynia stands almost at the midpoint of Poland’s Baltic Sea coast, on the Gulf of Danzig. It was born as a city out of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919 when it became part of Poland, and construction began two years later, first on the seaport then on the city itself. Now with a population of a quarter of a million, Gdynia forms part of a tri-city with Gdansk, formerly known as Danzig, and Sopot. The latter is a spa town and a favourite summer resort, where Europe’s longest wooden pier extends into the sea. Other highlights include the somewhat bizarre Crooked House, with a surreal melted appearance.

Day 13 & 14: At Sea
