In July 2021, we set course to the most fascinating cities of the Baltic Sea for the eighth time! The Baltic region awaits us with magnificent natural wonders, cultural treasures and picturesque towns. During this trip we arrive in places which can be discovered comfortably by cruise – enjoy travel without the daily hassle of re-packing your bags! In July, weather conditions are perfect: short nights, long days and warm temperatures will allow us to enjoy this 12-night cruise. 

Amsterdam is our point of departure. After a relaxing day at sea, our first destination will be Tallinn: you will fall in love with Tallinn and its medieval charm. There are plenty of delightful settings in this city and you will find a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. For sure, we will meet the local tango dancers of Tallinn and enjoy a charming afternoon Milonga, creating some unforgettable memories.

No doubt, the highlight of our tango cruise will be Saint Petersburg. We spend two full days in this fascinating city, which is a shining symbol of Russian culture. Whether it’s a stroll along the city's romantic bridges or a visit to the masterpieces in the Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg can satisfy even the most demanding visitor. As our ship stays overnight in port, we will use this opportunity to visit a Russian Milonga. Nasdrovje and Viva el Tango!

Enjoy the scenery as we cruise across the Baltic Sea to Helsinki, Finland's bustling capital. Take in the fabulous sights of the city known as the "Daughter of the Baltic" and discover for yourself the appeal and lure of the Finnish Tango. It will soon be made clear why it has been the national dance of Finland since 1913. Tango Argentino meets Finnish Tango…

Visby is steeped in culture and history - the Baltic island was a prominent trade centre for the Vikings - and boasts a medieval city wall, some beautiful architecture, cobbled streets, market places, pastel-coloured houses and panoramic ocean views, giving the city a truly Mediterranean feel.

As the northernmost destination in Denmark, Skagen is a renowned town with an amazing light, combined with a unique nature and white sand beaches. Maybe the most famous place of Skagen is Grenen:  mother nature has been at work at this sandy beach, where two seas, the Baltic Sea and the North Sea, meet. The port of Skagen is Denmarks largest fishing harbour.

After all these different cities and harbors, we can reminisce over our wonderful experiences on our last day on board before we arrive in Amsterdam. Enjoy a relaxing vacation in ‘the High North’ on board the “Serenade of the Seas”.

Tango lessons with Adriana and Felipe top off this great cruise experience and after eleven days full of wonderful moments exploring new cities and lots of dancing, we promise: 'tango cruising' is more than a holiday; it is a perfect and unique vacation. As we have some days at sea, we have plenty of time to relax and to enjoy cruising with spectacular sea view!

Tango Workshops with Adriana Duré and Felipe Martinez:
Those who have already experienced the two on our Tango Cruises in South America know how much commitment and joy they teach. Tango should be fun, that's guaranteed with Adriana and Felipe!
In a relaxed atmosphere they will introduce us to the subtleties of the "Milonguero style". Their goal is to teach the dancers a natural and flowing dance style - even with a full dance floor. On a good attitude and hug is paid particular attention.
Not only beginners, but also dancers of many years appreciate the well-founded basic work of Adriana and Felipe, who do not "rehearse" solid figures, but work together to develop the manifold possibilities of the movement sequences. The workshops will be tuned to take into account all dance levels.
Adriana and Felipe teach well understandable in English.

Tango on board / on land:
On board, we offer some milongas after consultation with the ship program. These will take place before dinner. Thus, there is also "time to recover" and we are ready for the next port and the next milonga. In St. Petersburg we stay overnight and we can visit a Russian milonga at night. We also plan to hold a milonga in Tallin during the day, along with the local tango scene.

The tango scenes in the Baltics are "young", warm and very hospitable. We were greeted with open arms everywhere on our last trips and could dance together - an unforgettable experience.
