Scott Slocum and WJOL are once again partnering with Norwegian Cruise Line for a July sailing of the tranquil Baltic Sea on board the Norwegian Breakaway. This ship features 18 decks with 28 dining options, 15 bars/lounges, a fitness center, spa, casino, sports complex, and aqua park. This is a mid-size ship built in 2013 with a capacity of 3,963 passengers. You will see places you may never have thought about visiting but you will be so glad you did! This trip will feature a great variety of cultures, historical treasures, and wonderful food, as well as great weather; all without packing and unpacking.
Copenhagen, Denmark: In a country rich in Viking history, grand castles and lush green countryside, Copenhagen is a charming city of 17th and 18th century buildings, beautiful parks and gardens, pretty promenades along canals, and ancient winding streets made for walking.
Warnemunde, Germany: The fine old Hanseatic red-brick town of Rostock and its neighboring seaside resort, Warnemunde, are best known as the jumping-off points for Berlin, which is three to five hours away by train. In Warnemunde, you’ll see rows of ancient, timber-framed houses, sleepy squares, and boats galore.
Tallinn, Estonia: Tallinn features a remarkably restored, medieval Old Town and still feels a part of the 1400s because of the cobblestone streets and medieval architecture. Walk the winding streets past towers and the old city wall and you’ll feel like you’re taking a step back into a storybook.
St. Petersburg, Russia: The beautiful city Peter the Great founded in 1703, in what was then swampland, has unbelievably sumptuous Czarist-era palaces (and subways), oniondomed churches, and the lovely Neva River.
Helsinki, Finland: Helsinki is a city with a strange mélange of identities. Maybe it’s the Russian influence, maybe it’s the strong appreciation of contemporary design (the city is home to Marimekko, Kalevala Koru, and Littala). Or it could be the dark, cold, and snowy winters that last half the year. One can find both the historic Helsinki (founded in 1550) in its monuments and cathedrals and the sleek Helsinki at the avant-garde museums of art and design.
Stockholm, Sweden: Stockholm is the largest city in Scandinavia, founded in 1252, and comprises 14 islands. The premier tourist attraction is Gamla Stan (Old Town), one of the largest neighborhoods of 16th-century buildings in Europe. Cobblestone streets and arms-width alleys crisscross Gamla Stan. There, you’ll also find the 18th-century Royal Palace.
The ship offers many ways to be entertained or to find simple solitude. Onboard you will find: deck chairs, indoor seating areas, ball courts, walking/jogging track, outdoor pools, five water slides, hot tubs, spa, sports complex (ropes course, 9-hole mini golf, rock wall, and a plank walk out over the sea), fitness center, library, card room, and a quarter-mile shopping and dining promenade. Bars and lounges are plentiful and include an Ice Bar. Entertainment options include stage shows (Rock of Ages, Burn the Floor, Cirque Dream), comedy, jazz/blues, variety and magic shows. Plus, you will find a full-action casino, cigar room, whiskey and champagne tasting bars, and plenty of daily activities (bingo, art auctions, arts & craft classes, etc.). And don’t forget NCL’s trademark White Hot Party!
