Consider a trip to the Vasa Museum to see an amazingly preserved 17th-century ship, or indulge in a smörgåsbord complete with traditional smoked salmon. Or opt for a trip to Skokloster Castle in the Swedish countryside.

Perhaps you will embark on an intimate boat tour and take in the breathtaking cityscape from the waters. Attend a private performance at the famed opera house. Or head on your own to the heart of the city to stroll the inviting footpaths of Djurgården Island, once a royal game park and today a picturesque recreational area blanketed in green. We depart in the early afternoon for a scenic cruise through the Stockholm archipelago.

Nearby is Porvoo, a charming medieval town with cobbled streets that weave between historic wooden buildings. Or travel to the home of composer Jean Sibelius at Ainola and take in a concert at the summer school. Alternatively, visit the 18th-century Suomenlinna Fortress, one of the world's largest historical maritime fortresses. Another highlight is the spectacular Temppeliaukio Church, also known as the "Rock Church" - a subterranean sanctuary with rough-hewn walls of granite.

Aboard MV Viking Star

Day 6 TALLIN | ESTONIA Awake with a full day in Tallinn, where you can nibble your way through intricate edible creations, for this is the birthplace of marzipan. One of the best-preserved medieval Old Towns in Northern Europe, Tallinn is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with picturesque cobbled streets, red rooftops and beautiful views of the sea. Stroll the Lower Town's narrow 13th-century streets, passing the Great Guild House, House of the Brotherhood of the Blackheads and Town Hall (1404). You can even explore Katarina (St. Catherine's) Passage, lined with handcraft workshops. Additionally, you'll be able to experience the summer evenings, when the streets are filled with locals.

Discover the sumptuously Rococo interiors of Amalienborg Palace, the winter residence of the Danish Royal Family. You may also want to consider a trip to the ornate Kronborg Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the inspirational setting of Shakespeare's Hamlet.

Or consider a cruise along the Lysefjord to see the famous Preikestolen or "Pulpit Rock", jutting out nearly 2,000 feet above-it is one of Norway's most famous natural attractions. Offshore oil drilling is an important industry for the local economy and the award-winning Petroleum Museum tells the story of the dangers faced extracting this precious fuel. While ashore, don't forget to indulge in waffles with cream and sweet jams.

Aboard MV Viking Star
