Cruise the Baltic

Which Baltic cruise is the best? 

Choosing the best Baltic cruise is a personal journey. The Baltic Sea offers a variety of cruise options, each with its own charm. Whether you seek cultural immersion or scenic tranquillity, Baltic cruises on small ships cater to diverse preferences.

Speak to one of our Pentravel advisors to find the best Baltic cruise for you. 

When is the best time for a Baltic Sea cruise? 

The Baltic's allure varies with the seasons. Summer — from June to August — bathes the region in long daylight hours and mild temperatures, making it an ideal time for outdoor exploration and cultural festivals. Spring and autumn offer a quieter experience with pleasant weather and fewer crowds. If you're intrigued by the possibility of witnessing the mesmerising Northern Lights, consider cruising during the colder months of late autumn and winter.

Are cruise ships still going to the Baltics?

Baltic cruises remain a sought-after adventure. Cruise lines continually adapt to provide safe and enriching experiences, ensuring you can explore this extraordinary region with peace of mind.

Is the Baltic Sea rough for cruising? 

While the Baltic Sea can occasionally be choppy due to its unique geography, modern cruise ships are equipped to provide a smooth and comfortable voyage. Experienced crews ensure your safety and comfort, allowing you to focus on the beauty of the region.
