NEW! – Includes golf in Russia

PerryGolf is proud to again partner with Azamara Club Cruises for an exceptional golf and sightseeing voyage through the Baltic Sea on board the outstanding Azamara Journey.

Our itinerary begins in Copenhagen, Denmark and concludes in Stockholm the vibrant capital city of Sweden.  We visit no less than six countries and the quality of our four round line up is sure to surprise and delight.  All courses are of modern construction with outstanding facilities.  Courses include Germany’s outstanding new Winston Golf Club;   Hirsala Golf Club in Helsinki, Finland;  Gorki Golf Club, the first and currently only championship golf course in northwest Russia; The Estonian Golf & Country Club in Tallinn Estonia, part of the prestigious European Tour Properties Network;  and the magnificent Bro Hoff Slott Stadium Course in Sweden.  PerryGolf’s cruise staff will be on board and ashore to oversee all aspects of your golf experience from daily pairings to the handling of your golf clubs.

Many guests are golfing couples along with a number who are golfers travelling with a non-golfing spouse who are exceptionally well catered to as well.  In addition to the fabulous on board facilities, which all will enjoy during our “sea time” as we cross the Baltic Sea,  a wide selection of Azamara Land Discoveries® are offered in each port.  Seven ports of call are on the schedule including Copenhagen, Warnemunde, Gdansk, Tallinn, Helsinki, Stockholm, plus the magical Russian city of St Petersburg where you will have three days and two nights in port to fully admire one of the world’s most spectacular cultural destinations.  Azamara distinguishes itself as a specialist for “destination immersion” by providing more time in port than other major cruise lines.

On board, guests are absolutely spoiled. The 690-passenger (410 crew) Journey is large enough to provide every comfort and amenity; outstanding restaurants and bars, an exceptional full service spa, an excellent variety of evening entertainment.  Yet she is small enough to provide an intimate, clubhouse style experience while comfortably navigating smaller harbours. In addition to “normal” cruise features, all soft drinks, specialty coffees, boutique daily wines, and a choice of select standard beers and cocktails are inclusive within the cruise fare, as are all gratuities. forty-four suites are available on Journey, each attended by English-style butler service. If you are inclined to indulge, we recommend you make your arrangements without delay.

8 AUGUST, wednesday: COPENHAGEN, DENMARK (IN PORT / 7:00PM)

Embark Azamara Journey from 1:00PM onwards. All aboard by 4:30PM.

Copenhagen is the capital and most populated city of Denmark, and is known as a city of spires: the skyline of its medieval core is punctuated only by the steeples of churches and towers of palaces, though a modern building boom has overtaken other parts of the city. Today's Copenhagen is known for its excellent quality of life and environmental consciousness - with many parks, it is green both literally and in today's sense of the word. It is also bicycle-friendly, with bike paths lining almost every major street. After a ride or wander through the old town, stop for a local repast of Smørrebrød, traditional open-face sandwiches, or a mouthwatering Danish pastry.

Enjoy it on your own arrangements or via Azamara Land Discoveries®

9 AUGUST, THURSDAY: BERLIN (WARNEMUNDE), GERMANY (7:00am / 11:45pm)

Warnemunde is a seaside resort neighboring the red brick 800-year-old Hanseatic city of Rostock. From here it is possible to spend the day in Berlin, capital city of a reunited Germany. Its historical core, home to important monuments like the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag building, is part of a revitalized city center, with cafes, restaurants, museums, and galleries. Layered over the Prussian past are WWII, recognized in a Memorial for the Murdered Jews of Europe; and Cold War relics, including a surviving section of the Berlin Wall and the infamous Checkpoint Charlie.

GOLF: WINSTON Links is a highly acclaimed new addition to European golf opening in 2011 and promptly declared Germany’s Best New Course for 2011/2012.  In 2014 it was voted the best golf course in the country, a remarkable achievement for this new 7,105 yard par 72 layout which is one of three courses at this resort.  WINSTON Links an inland links featuring many of the familiar British characteristics including gorse, heather, fast undulating fairways, hard greens with deep swales, 30 foot high dunes plus authentic bunkering where many of the traps and their surrounds are designed to gather vulnerable shots like a black hole.  Please note Winston Links is designed as a walking course and does not permit golf carts, and does not offer a caddie service.  Pull carts are available and included.

11 AUGUST, saturday: GDANSK (GYDNIA) POLAND (in port / 7:00PM)

Gdansk is a 1,000-year-old port city on the Baltic coast of Poland, which, together with the city of Gdynia and the town of Sopot, makes up the metropolitan area Trójmiasto, “the Tricity”.  Home to the Westerplatte, where World War II broke out in 1939,  Gdansk was mostly destroyed during the war, but many impressive sights remain. Wander through cobblestone streets and mazes of red-brick buildings to discover the Upland Gate, St. Mary’s Church, the medieval Gdansk Crane or the stunning façade of the Great Arsenal.  Explore treasures of “Baltic Gold” at the Amber Museum or collections of paintings, fabrics, and furniture at the National Museum, housed in a former Franciscan monastery. Relax at a beer garden or restaurant and take in the beautiful coastline. Make your way to Gdynia, home of the Polish navy, to feast on seafood or a visit to a floating museum in the form of two ships—Dar Pomorza and Blyskawica.

Enjoy it on your own arrangements or via Azamara Land Discoveries®.

A day at sea. No golf. No sightseeing. No worries. Here’s your chance to reset with the help of four restaurants plus cafes and lounges, a pool, sun decks, a spa, fitness center, jogging track, hair salon, shops, casino and cabaret lounge. Azamara’s clubhouse style ambience provides a hybrid of luxury and big-ship cruising with every amenity presented in an intimate setting with superb service.

13 AUGUST, MONDAY: TALLINN, ESTONIA (7:00AM / 6:00PM)

Tallinn is the capital and largest city of Estonia, being home to one third of the country’s population. Despite occupation at one time or another by each of its near neighbours, Tallinn is independent-minded and has creative ways of showing it - consider the Singing Revolution of 1988, the massive musical demonstration against Soviet rule that set Estonia on the path to independence.  Visit St Olav's Church, once the tallest building in the world, at least until 1625.  Then pull up a chair at one of the cafés in the charming town square, heart of the city for 800 years. After your coffee, explore St. Catherine's Passage, a quaint old lane, home to a collection of craft workshops, and check out the secret 17th C. tunnel system.

Enjoy it on your own arrangements or via Azamara Land Discoveries®

GOLF: Estonian Golf & Country Club opened in 2005 as part of the prestigious European Tour Properties network, and quickly and rightfully took its place in Golf World Magazine’s prestigious Top 100 European Courses, a spectacular achievement for a venue in an emerging golf nation.  Its Sea Course hosted the Omega Mission Hills World Cup European Qualifier in both 2009 and 2011, with the International European Seniors Championship following in 2013 and the European Ladies' Amateur Championship in 2014.  Locals say that when God created the coastal land of the Estonian Golf & Country Club, he must have intended it to be a golf course as it winds its way so harmoniously along the Baltic Coast and the Jägala River delta. Please note The Estonian Golf & Country Club operates a limited number of golf carts which will accommodate the majority but not all of our guests.  Carts will be allocated on a most need basis.  It is an easy walking golf course.  Pull carts will be provided for all walking guests.

17 AUGUST, FRIDAY: HELSINKI, FINLAND (7:00AM / 5:30PM)

Helsinki is a successful blend of traditional and modern architecture and design, interwoven with the beauty of nature, and a few quirky, purely Finnish touches - such as a church built inside a giant chunk of granite, and a venue that is a unique combination of café, restaurant, bar, laundromat, and sauna. Classic Russian onion-domed churches share the stage with Nordic minimalism, and a large concentration of Art Nouveau buildings. Prominent globally in the field of technology, Finland has also recently topped the charts as having the world's best educational systems. Enjoy it on your own arrangements or via Azamara Land Discoveries®

Port Explorer Guide – Helsinki

GOLF: Hirsala Golf Club is located just a short drive to the west of Helsinki and is set on a beautifully rolling piece of classic Finnish forest land. The golf course opened in 2007, was quickly rated by Golf Digest as amongst the best golf courses in the country, and in 2015 it had the honor of hosting the Finnish Open. The club also takes great pride in its GEO (Golf Environment Organization) certification, recognizing the contribution it makes to preserving the biodiversity and maximizing the ecological value of the land and the living ecosystem which depends on it.

18 AUGUST, SATURDAY: STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN (9:30AM / IN PORT)

Early morning scenic cruise of the Stockholm Archipelago.

Stockholm is the cultural, media, political, and economic centre of Sweden.  It sports an appealing mix of modern Scandinavian architecture and fairy tale palaces, watched over by a Board of Beauty, responsible for preserving the city. One third of its area is devoted to green space, and another third to waterways, providing lots of room to breathe. Gamla Stan is the oldest section, retaining the medieval layout of narrow meandering paths. For the contemporary take there's Sodermalm, known trendily as SoFo, with welcoming restaurants and pubs, specialty shops and boutiques. Stieg Larsson fans hang out here, as it is the area of the city where most action in the Millennium novels takes place.

Enjoy it on your own arrangements or via Azamara Land Discoveries®

Port Explorer Guide - Stockholm

GOLF: Bro Hof Slott GC Stadium Course has built a reputation as one of the best golf courses in the world.  Shortly after opening in 2007 the course which sits on spectacular grounds on the edge of Lake Mälaren was judged to be Sweden’s best.  It now ranks 54th in Golf World’s top 100 worldwide list and is ranked the second best in Europe outside The British Isles.  The Stadium Course is a “lakeside course” and a fabulous experience for any golfer. It also featured on the European Tour with Lee Westwood winning the 2013 Nordic Masters.
