Scandinavia & Russia Vacations

Scandinavia & Russia cruises navigate the Baltic Sea, traveling to ports such as St. Petersburg, Berlin, Oslo, Stockholm, Helsinki, and more. On a Scandinavia & Russia cruise, you’ll have the opportunity to see onion-domed churches, snow-capped fjords, capital cities, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and some of the most stunning architecture in all of the Baltics. And that’s just the beginning.

You will have the opportunity to see many famous landmarks. View the famous Edvard Munch “The Scream” painting in Norway’s National Gallery or sculptures in Vigeland Sculpture Park. Discover more about Jewish heritage in Berlin’s Jewish Museum. Attend a live Russian ballet performance in St. Petersburg. Have a frosty drink at the Ice Bar in Stockholm. And that’s not the mention all the palaces, churches, fortresses, museums, and art galleries you can check out!

Scandinavia & Russia cruises are popular amongst all kinds of cruisers who are looking for an adventure that is rich in art, culture, and history. A typical Scandinavia & Russia cruise ranges from 7- to 14-nights. This area may also be part of longer itineraries that visit additional parts of the world. The best time to travel to this region is the spring, when the weather turns mild and the days get longer. If you travel before April, you will have a good chance of catching a glimpse of the northern lights. Summertime can be busy, with less crowds and the same mild weather in the fall.

American Discount Vacations is proud to offer the best deals possible on all Scandinavia & Russia cruises booked with us. Backed by our "Low Price Guarantee," and powered by our team of expert travel agents, we're sure to exceed your expectations when booking your next Scandinavia & Russia cruise!

River Cruise Lines

Becoming more and more popular, a river cruise is an immerse and destination-focused vacation experience, on a small and luxurious vessel.

River cruises sail through the inland waterways of some of the world's most interesting vacation destinations (i.e. Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and North America), and provide their guests with a greater opportunity to spend time visiting more unique ports of call than a traditional cruise typically would.

Because the destination is the star of a river cruise, (typically guided) shore excursions are included at no additional charge by many River cruise lines. There are usually many interesting lectures given during the cruise, by experts on the history and culture of the region being visited.

Among the famous rivers that one may take a river cruise on are the Rhine, Mississippi, Seine, Danube, Mekong, Nile, Yangtze, Amazon and Douro.

Specialty Cruise Lines

These cruise lines offer a truly unique vacation experience, with a wide range of possible amenities and itineraries. Some are expedition cruise lines, others have sailing yachts or are coastal ships.

On these types of cruise lines, there's usually a focus on a specific destination or theme. Itineraries are usually very destination intensive, aided by the fact that they're able to reach many ports of call that larger ships can't.

Expedition cruise lines are a great fit for adventure-seeking travelers, featuring exciting destinations like the Galapagos Islands, Antarctica, and the Norwegian coast. During the cruise, there will usually be plenty of interesting lectures given by experts on the destination being visited. Often, shore excursions are included in the cost of the cruise. In fact, some of these cruise lines have all-inclusive pricing. There's a definite focus on the ship's surrounding scenery, as well as opportunities to view wildlife in their natural habitat. Small, but comfortable, ships are commonplace here, with anywhere from basic to very luxurious public spaces, cuisine, and accommodations (depending on the cruise line and ship).

Sailing Yachts, sail-assisted motor ships, offer a really unique vacation experience. Accommodations and cuisine on these intimate vessels can be anywhere from good to fantastic, depending on the cruise line. Destinations offered by these cruise lines may include the Caribbean, Europe, Panama Canal, Tahiti, and Costa Rica.

Mainstream Cruise Lines

Value is a key feature of these popular cruise lines, as they offer lots of activities, entertainment and dining options, along with a variety of stateroom types. Some of the cruise lines in this category have ships with unique innovations like water slides, rock-climbing walls, ice-skating rinks, surfing simulators, bowling alleys, and boardwalks.

Their ships are usually anywhere from mid-sized to very large "mega" ships, accommodating thousands of guests. These ships give the feel of being in a large resort.

Mainstream cruise lines are a great option for just about everyone (including multi-generation families, and first-time cruisers), and typically have great youth programs.

During the cruise, entertainment may include Broadway productions, Vegas-style shows, comedians, and music. Some of these lines have select formal nights during the cruise. Specialty restaurants are becoming more and more common (some which have a cover charge for this type enhanced dining experience). Buffets are usually available throughout the day, besides room service, and the main dining room(s).

Tour Types

  Learn More

Adventure Travel

When a tour operator offers "Adventure Travel" it often means that their tours include very active itineraries, usually involving the in-depth exploration of the area(s) being visited, and possibly visiting remote locations. This type of tour tends to appeal to thrill-seekers, and those that like to participate in activities that include a good amount of physical exertion.

  Learn More

Escorted Tours

An escorted tour includes a professional guide, as opposed to being an independent (or self-guided) tour. Some escorted tour operators include a limited amount of time for guests to explore on their own, while others have tours that are completely escorted. Typically, just about your entire itinerary is included and planned for in an escorted tour package. You don't have to worry about what you're going to see and don't have to make reservations (for each component of the trip) with multiple tour operators - this option allows for you to just leave it to the professionals and enjoy yourself.

Depending on the tour operator, as well as on the specific tour, some tours are private (just you and your traveling companions, if you have any) while others are with other travelers that booked the same tour. In the latter case, some tour operators offer small groups (which tend to be more expensive, but also more intimate and exclusive) while some have larger groups that travel together (which provides a very social atmosphere, as you can meet many other people).

  Learn More

Budget Tours

The tour operators that we list as offering a "Budget" product are those that tend to have pricing that is considered more economical, and as a result often include components (i.e. accommodations and tours) that are good but not quite top tier.

  Learn More

Independent Travel

Also referred to as self-guided travel, independent travel gives you the freedom to do things at your own pace. You don't have a guide with you like you would on an escorted tour, but you can make your own schedule and choose your own itinerary.

This option is usually significantly less expensive than an escorted tour that includes similar components; however, cost and quality simply depends on the tour you select as both budget and luxury tour operators offer this type of travel.

  Learn More

Customizable Tours

These tour operators give customers the option of picking and choosing pieces, creating a vacation that fits their preferences. Whether it's selecting specific hotels, or visiting specific destinations, the options are plentiful and sure to please you! We can arrange for as customized and specific of a tour that you would like, whether it be escorted, independent, or a bit of both.

Luxury Tours

When the finest vacation is your top priority, this is the place to start.

Common inclusions on the tours offered by these companies are luxury accommodations, private or small groups, exclusive/VIP experiences, and more. Although these tour operators are usually more expensive than the rest, they also provide their guests with so much more, resulting in a fantastic value when considering all that's included.
