Royal Caribbean Serenade of the Seas Map

Ports of Call

Copenhagen, Denmark - Denmark's capital is sophisticated, saucy and friendly. Stroll the fairytale world of Tivoli Gardens to take in bright lights, castles that out-Disney Disney. See the city's 200- year-old Royal Palace, the lively Old Harbor - Hans Christian Andersen lived here. Salute the Little Mermaid, symbol of this light-hearted city.

At Sea - Cruising - Cruising

Stockholm, Sweden - So much to see in this charming city, sprawled on 18 islands, often called the "Venice of the North." Cruise the sparkling waterways. Navigate narrow medieval streets. Watch the snappy changing of the guard at the Baroque Royal Palace. Shop for elegant gifts--glassware, stainless steel. Work up an appetite so you can do justice to the lavish smorgasbords

Tallinn, Estonia - Medieval walls and towers still stand tall in Old Town. Stroll and shop along cobblestone streets, walk up to the Baroque palace, drop in at Alexander Nevsky Cathedral to find inspiration in the gleaming mosaics and icons.

St. Petersburg, Russia - In Peter the Great's "Window on Europe", head for the fabulous Hermitage, with its renowned art collection from Raphael to Rembrandt, Titian to Tintoretto. Take in a concert--folkloric or grandly operatic. 

*Visas are included with most shore excursions. If you wish to explore St. Petersburg on your own, however, a visa will be required; obtaining one can take some time, so please begin the visa process immediately.

Helsinki, Finland - Shaped by its bays and isles, it's one of Europe's most scenic capitals. Hear a Sibelius concert, tour across the Arctic Circle to Lapland, land of Santa Claus, reindeer and the Midnight Sun. Buy a birchbark basket.
