Encounter the lands and legacies forged by centuries of Baltic history and hear firsthand from a participant in pivotal 20th century moments-former President of Poland, Lech Walesa, and Sergei Khrushchev, the son of Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev.

We are pleased to offer this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet and attend enriching lectures by President Walesa, a historic world leader and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, and Dr. Khrushchev, a noted author and award-winning scholar, on this unique Baltic Sea voyage.  One of the great cruises in the world, it features six Baltic countries and seven UNESCO World Heritage sites and is scheduled during the best time of the year when you can experience the luminous "White Nights" of the summer solstice.

Experience the cultural rebirth of the Baltic States and imperial treasures of St. Petersburg, Russia, while cruising aboard the exclusively chartered, Five-Star small ship M.S. Le Boreal, which features only 110 deluxe Suites and Staterooms, providing all the luxury and sophistication of a fine hotel.  In the tradition of ancient Viking mariners and medieval merchants, set forth from Denmark's beautiful and sophisticated, innovative, and exceptionally "green" capital city of Copenhagen to the cosmopolitan and royal Swedish capital of Stockholm.  Immerse yourself in the historic epicenter of the Solidarity movement in Gdansk, Poland; enjoy the well-preserved medieval Old Town of Tallinn, Estonia; and spend two days docked in the heart of regal St. Petersburg, with an early-opening tour of the world-acclaimed State Hermitage Museum and visits to the Peter and Paul Fortress and the spectacular czarist places at Petrodvorets and Pushkin.  Discover the stunning architecture of Helsinki, Finland; and tour the seldom-visited Hanseatic League town of Visby on Sweden's Gotland Island.  During the extraordinary Wonders of Norway Pre-Cruise Option, visit the vibrant city of Bergen and travel through stunning fjordlands and majestic mountains by private cruise and one of the world's most scenic train rides.

This comprehensive and exclusive travel offering includes Five-Star accommodations and a specially arranged shore excursion in each port and all meals.  I urge you to make your reservation soon, as capacity is limited and this popular program sells out quickly.
