Following our interview with one of the top execs of the European branch of the Cruise Lines International Association for the Harbours Review, our other publication, our appetite for embarking on a cruise journey across the Baltic Sea region has grown even more.
Interestingly, the regional cruise business isn't limited to the mighty floating hotels. There's a number of companies, most notably based in the UK, that are offering luxurious Baltic region-wide trips on the rails.
For instance, there's the 15-day Highlights of the Baltics & Scandinavia cruise for "mere" £3,295/person, including a ferry trip from Stockholm to Riga!
Curiously, other themes sound like our journal's table of contents: the Silk Road: Moscow - Beijing; the Polar Express Train Journey; the Grand Arctic Circle Explorer; the Arctic Circle Express; or the Best of Finland, Russia, and the Baltic States.
