2023  Snark's Baltic Voyage

The voyage is split into ten legs of 7 to 14 days each. We have arranged the legs so you can choose to join us for one or two weeks at a time, with the Baltic cruise being a two week event.

 

We will start taking firm bookings shortly but for now we are asking those of you who are interested in booking to message us with which leg/s you wish to join. We will put you on a first come first served reservation list without obligation, to be given priority booking once we have everything finalised in a few weeks’ time.
