The Baltic Sea cruise on offer here at The River Cruise Line spreads across the Polish and German coasts, stopping at Szczecin, Wolin, Anklam, Greifswald and the island of Rugen. The Baltic Sea cruise is a great way to see northern Europe, soaking in the sights and sounds of several places you may not usually have access to as a tourist.
If you fancy a Baltic Sea cruise, you may also be interested in some of the other cruises in our European cruise range: we offer river cruises along the Flemish waterways, the Main river, the Elbe river, and so much more!
The Baltic Sea sits between central and northern Europe and lies within the Scandinavian Peninsula, mainland Europe and the Danish islands. It is about 1,000 miles long and has an average width of 120 miles.
It is a large body of water with several bays, but is relatively isolated from the ocean. This makes for smooth waters that are lovely to cruise upon.

Baltic Sea Cruises
By area, the Baltic Sea is one of the largest brackish inland seas in the world, and it is bounded by the Scandinavian Peninsula, mainland Europe and the Danish islands.
The history of the Baltic is best experienced on a cruise as you move from place to place. The communities in this area date back further than the Viking times, when the waterways were the only way to navigate the region — many are in agreement that it is still the best way to explore this captivating part of the world.
Cruising along the Baltic Sea offers visitors a rich history to explore, unspoiled nature to enjoy, and beautiful beaches to relax on. It is also the perfect gateway to explore mainland Europe with the delights of Germany and Poland within easy reach.
A River Cruise Line trip on the Baltic Sea combines all of its best features into a fantastic package, meaning all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the journey.
