What Northern Europe has to offer.
From Scandinavia to the Baltic region, no two destinations in Northern Europe are quite the same. With a blend of jaw-dropping landscapes, colourful heritage and a rich fashion and design scene, you’ll discover something new at every port of call.
Firstly, there are the epic, UNESCO-protected fjords of Norway with their deep blue water, waterfalls and dramatic mountains. The ultra-stylish towns of Sweden and Denmark will provide a sharp contrast before we sail onto the rugged landscapes of Iceland.
On a northern European cruise, you’ll also explore the Baltic region, from the medieval streets of Tallinn to the echoes of imperial past in the opulent St. Petersburg. No one day is the same as the last.

The best time to visit Northern Europe, with Celebrity Cruises.
The warmest months in Scandinavian and Baltic countries are from May – September when temperatures can reach the mid to high twenties in Stockholm. Winters tend to be very cold and wet.
You can experience the city of St Petersburg at its most dazzling between May and July – when the sun doesn’t set, and the mysterious White Nights take place. A luminous glow bathes the city all through the night, celebrated by a range of festivals, concerts and general revelry.
The best time to discover Norway's fjords is also in the summer when plenty of sunshine and natural light will ensure you experience these natural wonders at their best. Spring is also a good time to visit, as the snowmelt makes the waterfalls even more dramatic.
