Summer – classic time for travel and exploring unknown destinations. On their quest for new horizons, more and more tourists set sails on a cruise ship to the Baltic Sea to follow the path of ancient Vikings or Hanseatic sailors. In this five-part series we join them on their journey from picturesque Swedish village over Finland’s bustling capital of Helsinki to historically rich St. Petersburg and the outstanding natural beauty of the Baltic states. We get to see each place through the eyes of the locals as they show us their world and share their everyday, yet extraordinary life with us. Back on board, we sneak behind the scenes to find out what it takes to keep a floating hotel humming and running.
