Arrive in Hamburg to enjoy the day in Berlin. Founded in the 13th-century, the German capital of Berlin is now a vibrant, multi-cultural metropolis. The city was divided in two during the Cold War, with the 18th-century Brandenburg Gate now a proud symbol of the reunification. Berlin's turbulent 20th-century history is also brought to life at the Holocaust memorial, Checkpoint Charlie and the graffitied remains of the Berlin Wall. Visit the Reichstag building - the setting for the German Parliament, the Bundestag. Explore Museumsinsel (Museum Island) - home to DDR Museum, German Spy Museum, Pergamon Museum, Alte Nationalgalerie, Bode Museum, Neues Museum and Berlin Cathedral. Admire city-wide views from Berlin Television Tower or shop for bargains at the designer stores on Kurfustendamm.

Enjoy its canals and wide boulevards lines with shops, bars and restaurants during your time here. Visit art gallery, Konstmuseet, and the century-old Masthugget Church before heading to the city's botanical garden — featuring the colourful Rhododendron Valley — and sampling oysters and fish platters at the seafood market.

Copenhagen, Denmark
Copenhagen, Denmark's capital city, is your next port of call. Ride the old-style amusement rides at Tivoli Gardens or get up close to colourful marine life at National Aquarium Denmark. Shop 'til you drop along the world's longest pedestrian shopping street - Strøget. A tour of the Carlsberg Brewery is a popular choice or enjoy family-fun at Dyrehavsbakken amusement park. Kronborg Castle and Christiansborg Palace on Slotsholmen Island are a must-see for culture fans. If you fancy something different, why not head out to the workshops, galleries and organic eateries at Freetown Christiania? No trip to Copenhagen would be complete without a photo opportunity at the world-famous Little Mermaid statue.

Oslo, Norway
Oslo, the capital of Norway, sits on the country’s southern coast and is known for its spectacular snow-capped mountains and rolling green hills. Take a stroll around the modern city and be mesmerised by the eclectic mix of ancient castles and dazzling lakes.

Zeebrugge, Belgium
The modern port of Zeebrugge features a pretty marina, beach, and lively seafront promenade with cafes, hotels, and easy access to Brussels — Belgium's vibrant capital city. Visit the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Grand Place, the city's central square, and see the 15th-century city hall or relax with a drink in a laid-back cafe. Take a romantic horse and carriage ride along the cobbled streets, passing local markets and winding canals. Known as the chocolate capital of the world — stop by some of the country's oldest and most-famous chocolatiers to sample traditional Belgian chocolate and take away some sweet treats. Zeebrugge is also the gateway to the 'Venice of the North', Bruges. Float along Bruges’ network of canals, admiring the heritage buildings that line the shore.

Background
Island Princess
Overview
Island Princess was built to Panamax size – this means she was built to the maximum size a cruise ship can be to sail through the Panama Canal. A high percentage of balcony staterooms give guests the chance to view this feat of engineering up-close, or take in stunning views of spectacular glaciers during cruises to Alaska. Featured on just one other Princess ship, the Bayou Café and SteakhouseSM is a unique dining venue on board in which to enjoy authentic New Orleans cuisine accompanied by live jazz.
