Overview

Our journey begins in Sweden, where we’ll explore the fascinating city of Stockholm and the Vasa Museum, before embarking the beautiful Azamara Quest for an eight-night cruise across the Baltic Sea to Estonia, Russia and Finland. Our first port of call is Tallinn in Estonia, where we’ll discover its photogenic Old Town before making our way to St Petersburg. We’ll spend three wonderful days moored here, uncovering the city’s hidden gems and historic landmarks. We’ll enjoy a private performance by the St Petersburg Symphony Orchestra and tour the Grand Palace and Lower Park at Peterhof.

After departing this magnificent city of glistening golden domes and impressive Orthodox works of art, we soon arrive in Finland. Here, we’ll discover the capital Helsinki, the historical Suomenlinna Fortress – now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and Mariehamn on the sunny Åland archipelago. Our cruise concludes with a sea crossing back to Sweden where we disembark the ship and make our way home.

A large number of staterooms and suites have balconies... what better way to start the day that with the fresh sea air and stunning views?

Add to all of that the world-class dining options, spa experiences to refresh and relax, and all new entertainment services, the experience on-board is matched only by the immersive cultural encounters that await you on shore.

Take your pick from a range of beauty and restorative health treatments in the new Sanctum Spa; anything from an ocean-front massage to a quick manicure, a new hairstyle, or even acupuncture. Beyond the spa, there’s an on-board gym for you to work out at your own pace and complimentary fitness classes.

The main dining options include everything from elegant a la carte to nightly themed buffets, with the possibility to visit the ship’s speciality restaurants.
