Tue, 16.08.2016

Tallinn/Estonia, 11.00 – 18.00 hrs

Tallinn
The old town of Tallinn brings the Middle Ages to life in the 21st century, and it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Walk past the town hall and guild houses and dive into an age long past. Less well-known but all the more comfortable for it: Tallinn’s scenic coffee house culture.

Passing picturesque islands and small cliffs, in the early morning the EUROPA 2 will navigate its way through the famous archipelago where you can enjoy breathtaking views of this natural panorama. Enjoy typical Scandinavian flair in the city itself. Explore the city on a Segway tour* or by water*, or take a bicycle tour* or kayak tour* around Haga Park and Lake Brunnsviken – these are just some the options available to you.

Fans of pop music can follow in the footsteps of ABBA* as they visit some of the famous sights relating to this revolutionary band.

Kalmar is worth seeing: its picturesque old town is a real gem featuring cobbles, a market square and an impressive baroque cathedral. The town hall is an architectural highlight and a perfect example of the Danish Renaissance style.

Sat, 20.08.2016

Gdynia (Gdansk)/Poland, 8.00 – 18.00 hrs

Gdynia (Gdansk)
A 1,000-year history and a cosmopolitan atmosphere: Gdansk is one of the most exciting metropolises in Europe. Explore the city at your own pace or in a kayak*. The impressive Malbork Castle*, once the headquarters of the German Order and the largest brick building in Europe, is no less remarkable.

Sun, 21.08.2016

Copenhagen/Denmark, 12.30 – 19.00 hrs

Copenhagen
Copenhagen is the design capital of Europe and combines majestic buildings with modern architecture, such as the Royal Opera House whose remarkable 90 m wide projecting roof really catches the eye. The free town of Christiania, which you can explore on a bicycle tour through the “alternative” part of Copenhagen*, is particularly liberal. Or wander through Nyhavn, the popular and colourful trendy district with gabled houses, comfortable cafes and small shops. Alternatively, riding on horseback through the royal hunting grounds of Dyrehaven* promises a sense of freedom.

Testimonials

  • “I do wish to thank you, the Charge Nurse and the rest of your dialysis team. You’re doing a great service to those in need of it and who are keen to travel at the same time.  Your variety of ocean and river cruises gives all those who may be interested a wide choice of styles and destinations, while at the same time being able to rely on professional care and service in dialysis needs. Keep up the good work. Thank you once again”

    Mr Dominic Yau
  • Cruise was wonderful. We loved the Europa2  and Dr. Westerman was a delight to have do our dialysis sessions.

    Mrs S Pearl
  • We had a lovely holiday and have lots of pictures to remind us of where we went – they are on my screensaver already and are a very enjoyable reminder.  As you know I love these holidays. I am really grateful that I could have a holiday while on dialysis – it is so lovely to get away from home for more than a night!

    Mrs L Osborn
  • I’d just like to thank you and your professional Dialysis Team for making my first ever cruise experience so wonderful.  Starting from the time of booking, through the worst parts – waiting for the departure date to come around, right through until disembarkation.

    The paperwork, though comprehensive was clear and easy for myself and my home clinic nurses to complete, and your advice on what to pack for the expectations of the cruise liner took that stress away.

    It was good to meet everyone in your team and my compatriots for treatment so soon after embarkation and everything always felt like it was no problem and easily handled.  The dialysis team was totally professional at all times, but that was also complimented by their personalities which meant time on dialysis went quite quickly chatting etc.  The Nephrologist was extremely thorough at all times but was also quite amusing in her own way.  The Charge Nurse was a wealth of experience and definitely the glue bonding the team together and always available for everyone at all times.  The two nurses providing support were effective team players and knew their stuff.

    Being an accompanied cruise meant there was always someone about if you wanted a chat even on the excellent inclusive shore trips.  It was good to see the planning that went in to arranging dialysis sessions around these activities and the team were always looking to be flexible on start stop times.

    I will do this again in the future, need to save up a bit first, but would recommend it to anyone.  Thanks for a wonderful holiday.

    Mr K Summerhayes
  • I wanted to tell you that it was a wonderful cruise and thank you for all the efforts you have had in respect to the dialyses.  Everything was working at the full satisfaction.
