Live Breathe Travel proudly offers an incredible Silversea adventure onboard the luxurious Silver Dawn...

Cruising Scandinavia and the Baltics in style

Live Breathe Travel, an award-winning travel agency based in Birkenhead, invites you to experience once-in-a-lifetime luxury cruise in Scandinavia and the Baltics aboard the incredible Silver Dawn. Owner/operator Sharon and partner Michael took to the high seas with a crew of their wanderlust clients in September to experience the amazing Silversea five-star service they have grown to know and love. They enjoyed a fourteen night itinerary cruising through the best of Scandinavia and the Baltics, and can't wait to share their expertise with you so you can do the same.

Not familiar with the Baltics?

Think cobbled streets filled with rows of bicycles, ornate palaces that date back centuries, and the chicest of cafés, bars and shopping. This region of Europe is the quintessential melting pot; equal parts language, gastronomy, tradition and diversity. More than anything, think of a region where the countries may be close but the cultures are miles apart. Whether you want cathedrals or countryside, quaint towns or vibrant cities, the best way to see this region is by cruise - an area of Europe many have still not uncovered.

What better ship to sail on!

Silver Dawn is one of Silversea’s newest luxury cruising ships, having been launched in 2022. Accommodating a mere 596 guests, the 411-strong crew looks after your every need. The ship has the most outstanding OTIVM wellness concept, which sets new standards of luxury cruising in spacious and well-appointed suites, all with butler service. Be it pouring your favourite tipple from your personal mini bar, restaurant reservations being made, running you a bath on your return from a busy day sightseeing, your butler is there for you.  The beauty of unpacking once on holiday is such a treat when travelling to multiple destinations. Even better, get your butler to do your unpacking for you for a completely stress-free and pampered experience.

Intimate and on a smaller scale than the huge cruise liners, the famed Silversea onboard ambiance is retained, yet the gorgeous Silver Dawn is large enough to offer no less than eight dining options, including the superb 'Sea and Land Taste' programme (SALT). Enjoy the finest cooking classes inspired by the region you are sailing in, plus an exclusive destination-focused restaurant and bar offering locally inspired cocktails. You can taste your way through regional specialities for a totally immersive travel experience which is unique to Silversea.
