Come explore what has been called the "Paris of the Baltics."
Time : 12:00 pm
Lithuania's third largest city, Klaipeda has been in and out of the hands of the Russians, Swedes and Germans.

Head to the pristine Baltic waters lapping at the broad sands of Smiltynė Beach. Or duck into the Clock Museum or Castle Museum.
Stroll the beautiful waterfront of Gdynia before heading to nearby Gdansk, the largest city in northern Poland. For a taste of local life, walk along bustling Long Market lined with delicious cafes and unique boutiques. Explore the sites of historic Old Town, which was restored after being destroyed in World War II. Tour St. Mary’s Church – one of the world’s largest brick cathedrals – or visit the Maritime Museum for a glimpse into the past of this ancient port city.
Berlin (Warnemunde), Germany
It's been more than two decades since the walls came down and Berlin became unified in many ways, including the pursuit of joy. Germany's capital city is a city that balances cosmopolitan chic with a liberal undercurrent of creativity and cool. Famous landmarks like the Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag fascinate. The elegant Bavarian Quarter amazes.
Hamburg (Kiel), Germany
Founded in the 13th century, Kiel was mostly destroyed during World War II. Today, the port city encompasses much green space and has been rebuilt upon a complicated past, which you can discover by touring its historic landmarks and museums, including the Naval Memorial and a German submarine U-995. Stroll along the waterfront promenade and enjoy scenic views of the harbour and Kiel Fjord, or journey outside the city along the waterway to explore picturesque villages and sandy beaches.
The capital of Denmark, Copenhagen, is filled with canals, cobbled squares and copper spires. But don't let the historic appearance fool you. This is also Scandinavia's most cosmopolitan city. Certainly you can relive medieval times in The Latin Quarter, but you can also enjoy some of Europe's finest shopping, museums, cafes and nightlife prior to your cruise around the Baltics.
