On The Road To A Baltic Cruise

Road to California is teaming up once again with World of Quilts Travel in sponsoring a 10 day Baltic Quilt Cruise, June 27 – July 7, 2018.  

This is the third quilting cruise Road to California has embarked on. Previous destinations were to the Panama Canal and a fall tour in New England and Eastern Canada. The Baltic Quilt Cruise promises to be our best one yet.

What is a quilting cruise? A quilting cruise combines traditional cruising (complete with all the amenities and activities you would expect) with quilting experiences taught by distinguished faculty. The Baltic Quilt Cruise will be sailing on Holland America’s Zuiderdam ship.

Quilt classes for this cruise will be offered on sea days by internationally known teachers Jen Kingwell (Australia), Stevii Graves (America), Christine Marie Flocard (France) and Gillian Travis (UK). To learn more about the specific classes, visit this link.

Is a quilting cruise just for quilters? Absolutely not. We are joining a regularly scheduled cruise which makes it perfect for family and friends to join along.

What makes the Baltic Region so special?  The Baltic is one of the most enchanting regions of the world, with spectacular scenery, charming villages, and fascinating imperial treasures. Each port has unique, stunning scenery and offers lots of opportunities to shop, experience the local cuisine and enjoy sightseeing adventures.  What ports will the cruise be visiting? The ship launches from Copenhagen, Denmark and includes visits to Tallinn, Estonia; St. Petersburg, Russia; Helsinki, Finland; Stockhom, Sweden; and two stops in Germany– Warnemunde  (for Berlin) and Kiel (for Hamburg) before returning back to Copenhagen. Each stop is for one day except for St. Petersburg which is overnight.

What is included in the price of the cruise? All shipboard accommodations, meals and entertainment as well as all Road to California Events which includes the quilt classes and workshops; a Welcome Reception; Show and Tell Gathering; Special Prizes and Gifts. There is also an option to join private group shore tours.
