Day 1: Tuesday 12 June

Where toy houses balance on sun-filled fjords and the sky melts into the sea. We fly this evening with Emirates seeking purity and peace in Europe’s north. 

Arrive Copenhagen (Denmark)

Day 2: Wednesday 13 June

We arrive into Copenhagen on a summer’s afternoon and check in to Hotel d’Angleterre. An alabaster neoclassical palace on the famous Stroeget shopping street, there are no finer establishments in this fastidiously well-ordered capital. We cherish two nights here.

Danish chef Andreas Bagh’s Michelin-starred gastronomy delights our palates this evening on a memorable Welcome Dinner. Modern Nordic cuisine dazzles brighter than the enduring evening light.

Copenhagen

Day 3: Thursday 14 June

Legacies of the world’s oldest monarchy punctuate Copenhagen’s graceful streets. We discover numerous castles, palaces and royal monuments on a tour this morning. Visit Hans Christian Andersen’s Little Mermaid statue and stroll around Tivoli Gardens. Copenhagen’s oldest theme park, opened in 1843, is as charming as ever.

Day 4: Friday 15 June

Embark Ship

The briny history of the Vikings comes to life at Roskilde. We explore the ancient Viking capital and its ruins. Discover what drove the Danes and their Scandinavian brethren over the seas to pillage and plunder.

We board Silver Spirit later in the day. Watch Copenhagen dissolve into the distance, Champagne in hand.

At Sea

Day 5: Saturday 16 June

The day is yours to relax on board. In summer, these waters are rich in plankton. Look for minke, humpback and sperm whales in deep sea feeding grounds. Fulmars, gannets and cormorants drift on the breeze above our ship.

Flam, Gudvangen (Norway)

Day 6: Sunday 17 June

On Norwegian soil, fjord country awaits. 

A slow rail journey into the clouds unfolds aboard the Flamsbana. One of the world’s steepest train lines takes us through wonderfully beautiful scenery. From impressive peaks at ocean level near the Sognefjord in Flam, we lurch to the summit at Myrdal mountain station on Hardangervidda plateau. Dare to look down at the ocean 863 metres below. 

We meet our ship in Gudvangen in time for afternoon tea. 

Alesund

Day 7: Monday 18 June

Pastel-hued buildings wedged between mountains and fjords. We arrive at the art nouveau city of Alesund. Examine the Art Nouveau Centre and the Art Museum KUBE with a

Lofoten Islands

Day 10: Thursday 21 June

Mossy hills merge to mountains dusted in snow further along Norway’s coast. Far above the Arctic Circle, today we reach the constellation of islands in the Norwegian Sea known
as the Lofoten Islands. An outpost of untamed wilderness, the beauty is astounding. 

The air is brisk in Svolvaer, but the chill invigorates your soul afresh. Old fishermen’s cabins in red and white adorn the peaceful harbour. We experience a warm Lofoten Island welcome with lunch in a reconstructed longhouse. Our hearty meal is accompanied by singing Vikings. 

This afternoon we meet the mountain goats at Aalan Gard Farm. With our heads in the clouds, we learn how goat cheese is produced using traditional methods.

Tromso

Day 11: Friday 22 June

As Tromso slides into view we have officially entered the Arctic Circle. We admire the Arctic Cathedral and visit the Polaria. The world’s most northerly aquarium houses a
Noah’s Arc of Arctic marine species. 

After lunch we experience a bird’s-eye view of Tromso. Aboard a cable car, we glide to the summit of a nearby mountain for impressive views.

Honningsvag

Day 12: Saturday 23 June

The edge of mainland Europe is in sight. Yet the Gulf Stream brings winters milder than those towards the southern end of the country. Through rugged landscapes we travel to the North Cape. It’s a thrill to stand upon Europe’s northernmost point. Caviar and Champagne complete the experience. 

At this time of year, it never quite grows dark. Our days feel languid and endless. We stay in port until late evening and enjoy exploring Honningsvag at leisure.

Hammerfest

Day 13: Sunday 24 June

Our ship nudges into port today in Hammerfest. A clutch of handsome wooden houses greet us at the harbour. The northernmost town in Norway, and perhaps even the world, is at our doorstep until after lunch. 

Roam the town on your own schedule, watching for reindeer who have right of way here. Or choose from two Your World experiences. Each reveals intricacies of this secluded region.

  • The native Sami people of the Arctic welcome us to Mikkelgammen. Stories of life raising reindeer unfold over a meal of traditional cuisine. 
  • Stroll through the compact centre of Hammerfest with a local guide. Charming squares and streets are abuzz during the summer.

To Norway’s fourth-largest island today. Hinnoya is defined by lush forests and snow-capped peaks. Glassy fjord waters ripple like silk. Wild strawberry fields add a sweetness to the air.

We land at the town of Harstad during the annual Arts Festival of Northern Norway. Enjoy the musical and cultural festivities at your own pace. Or, take part in a Your World experience. The choice is yours.

Day 16: Wednesday 27 June

The Viking port of Hellesylt leads us to the nation’s most famous fjords. At Geirangerfjord, sheer granite cliffs shimmer with seven plunging waterfalls, known as the ‘Seven Sisters’. A full-day tour by road immerses us in breathtaking scenery. Farms rest on steep cliff sides along the twisting mountain road to the village of Geiranger.

Geirangerfjord, Norway

Bergen

Day 17: Thursday 28 June

Take a deep breath, the air in Bergen is as pure as it comes. Hedged in by hills and fjords, we immediately fall for this pretty waterside town. Admire charming timber houses
and peruse curious museums. Later, take a ride on the Bergen Express over mountains and beside mirror-like waters. Afterwards, relax and enjoy the scenery on your own terms. Our Your World experience, however, is not to be missed.

 
Enjoy the view from above on a helicopter ride. Witness Norwegian nature at its most scenic as we soar over Hardangerfjord. Velvety green verges spill into crystal waters.

Day 21: Monday 2 July

The green domes of Helsinki Cathedral flicker into view as breakfast is served. We step out to enjoy the harbourside city on our own. Or spend the day on a Your World experience.

  • The medieval city of Porvoo awaits on the south coast. With township status since 1380, the historic streets pull us back through time.
  • See the city from a local’s perspective. Tram Route 6 leads us on a design and culinary tour through markets and galleries.

Day 22: Tuesday 3 July

From the Peter and Paul Fortress to St Isaac’s Cathedral, today’s city tour introduces us to St Petersburg’s magical sights. 

This evening we are treated to a private ballet performance. Dress for the occasion, we are headed for one of the city’s most famous buildings.

St Petersburg

Day 23: Wednesday 4 July

Our second day in St Petersburg unfolds as we please. Explore on your own or choose a Your World experience.

  • Take an afternoon excursion on the hydrofoil to explore Peterhof Palace. Admire gilded fountains and stroll the stately gardens.

St Petersburg

Day 24: Thursday 5 July

Pavlovsk Palace was constructed in 1781 in honour of Catherine the Great’s son. We explore the palace and park. Catherine Palace is our next stop. A stroll around the manicured gardens precedes lunch and a Russian folklore performance. 

The bright lights of St Petersburg twinkle out of sight as we set sail this evening.

St. Petersburg, Russia

Stockholm, Sweden
Stockholm City Hall, Sweden

Depart Stockholm

Day 28: Monday 9 July

Awaking in the centre of Stockholm, it’s time for a tough decision – how to spend our free morning. To stay in and lap up a little more of that lavish Scandinavian-style living, or head out and about?

If you choose to wander amid its genetically blessed residents, you won’t have to venture far. We’re just minutes from numerous museums and the gorgeous yellow and amber buildings in the Old Town. Swedish coffee in one hand, a cinnamon bun in the other, the city is yours to enjoy.

Everything has been Considered & Included

Sometimes travelling can be a chore, distracting you from the fascinating places you are in. That’s why everything mundane has been moved behind the scenes. You will never have to carry a map, luggage, small change for tips or bargain for a taxi fare.

Travel without the hassles

Everything is included – international flights to and from Australia, your luxury cruise with Silversea, outstanding accommodation, all dining and drinks, and every sightseeing trip including Your World experiences. Yes, even the taxes,  transfers and travel insurance.

Our Luggage Valet service is also included. Simply pack your bags (or ask your butler to pack them for you) and leave them in your suite. We pick them up and make sure that they arrive safely at your next hotel. We also provide home-to-airport-to-home transfers. And just in case, a doctor travels with us too.

We go even further to include exclusive travel arrangements. Every sightseeing experience throughout your cruise is custom-designed by Captain’s Choice. You also have the option to join us for a night or more before stepping aboard your ship and often at the conclusion of your cruise too. You can even embark on a longer immersion into the region.

With Captain’s Choice, there are no hidden costs, or optional extras. Because that would be breaking our promise of travel without the hassles.

Silversea Dining

Your World Experiences

We have crafted an exclusive collection of included experiences that are unique to every Captain’s Choice journey. We like to call them Your World. From a helicopter flight over smouldering Mt Etna to an afternoon spent sailing around the Balearic Islands on a private yacht, it’s your invitation to take part in rare and amazing events of which other travellers could only ever dare dream.

It's not what you know

Your World Hosts are made up of a Tour Manager and a doctor, and often Tour Hosts as well, who will accompany you from the moment you leave Australia until your return home. Additionally, English-speaking local guides join you in many locations.

A place to call home

Away from your fine ship, Captain’s Choice has chosen only the very best purveyors of hospitality each destination has to offer. Residences are benchmarks of luxury, usually in a central location. More often than not, they have a history to tell. You might find yourself, on one night, in a magnificent castle turned luxury hotel, standing proudly on its own island. The next, tucked away in a private residence favoured by royals and dignitaries alike.

Culinary Excellence

With an Italian heritage, Silversea encourage you to enjoy la dolce vita – from the moment you step aboard to the time you wave arrivederci. So, as you’d expect, cuisine is a high priority, and you’ll always eat exceptionally well thanks to the culinary influence of the prestigious Grands Chefs Relais & Châteaux. Dine when you please in any one of the numerous gourmet venues. Or, choose to enjoy meals in the privacy of your suite. Beverages, in-suite and throughout the ship, flow freely at all times.

The high life on the high seas

During your time aboard Silver Spirit, you’ll enjoy the best of everything, including a range of sublime restaurants, lounges and bars to complement an extraordinary array of facilities. The size means we can dock right in the heart of big city ports one day, and explore rarely seen harbours the next. When you are one of just a few worldly guests on board a small ship, your experience is highly personalised. And with almost one staff member to every guest, you will always be indulged with the kind of service that encourages you to completely relax – with a perpetually full flute of Champagne if you wish.

never a dull moment

There’s always something for you to do if your schedule includes sailing days. Wake early and join a yoga class, grab a coffee with a historian as you approach your next port, or while away an afternoon by the pool. After dinner, perhaps meet friends at the bar for a night of cocktails and dancing, try your luck at the casino or head to the Show Lounge, where performances range from opera to Broadway-style. Or, delight in the rare opportunity to do nothing at all.
