The famous little mermaid statue in Copenhagen

There are several definitions of ‘The Baltics’, but in cruise ship terms, The Baltics refers to the countries that surround the Baltic Sea in northern Europe.

This area is easily reached by ships sailing from the British Isles, and the best time to do these cruises are between June and early September. The ships are generally able to berth very close to the city centre which makes exploring on your own very easy.
