Star Princess cruises into ports like Sweden’s beautiful jewel, Stockholm, Copenhagen, and the modern Finnish metropolis of Helsinki. Copenhagen, Denmark Denmark’s largest city is perhaps best known for its lovely waterfront - home to the famous Little Mermaid statue. But you’ll want to save time for magical Tivoli Gardens, too. Oslo, Norway The spirit of Norway’s interesting past is alive and well in the Viking Ship Museum and Norwegian Folk Museum. Its natural splendors are on full display in the forested Nordmarka. Gdansk, Poland The shipyard at Gdansk is universally famous as the birthplace of Poland’s Solidarity Movement. And the rest of the city is rich in history and modern attractions. Tallinn, Estonia Estonia’s capital of Tallinn is a medieval treasure. Wander Toompea Hill to Toompea Castle, and enjoy al the charms of the Old City, virtually preserved in its original state. St. Petersburg, Russia It’s one of those places for which words do not do it justice. Breathtaking Catherine Palace and the magnificent collection of the State Hermitage Museum are just two of the jewels of this “Venice of the North.” Helsinki, Finland The “White City of the North” is more that just a fascinating modern capital, it’s the center of Finnish commerce and culture. Stockholm, Sweden Fourteen islands and countless bridges make Stockholm utterly unique. Visit the historic Royal Palace, Drottningholm Palace, and the city’s many museums.
