Scotsman Baltic - featuring the Flying Scotsman locomotive

Any Cruise, Anywhere, Any Time

The Scotsman and the Baltic

featuring the Flying Scotsman

Have you longed to live a pampered life of style, grace and romance? For 25 days, you’ll do just that on our unrivalled rail and sail adventure in Britain and the Baltic. A stay in the 5-star Waldorf Hilton in London’s West End provides a fitting prelude to your unforgettable journey north to Edinburgh aboard the vintage Pullman rail carriages of the Cathedral Express. Amid a nostalgic atmosphere of timeless elegance, you’ll sip on champagne and savour fine dining as grand cathedral cities and bucolic countryside roll by. And between York and the Scottish capital, the world’s most famous locomotive, the historic, record-breaking Flying Scotsman, will haul your carriages as spectators along the line wave you by.

The prestigious Waldorf Astoria in the heart of Edinburgh offers scope for relaxation and exploration before the Flying Scotsman whisks you back south to England. The Waldorf Hilton will feel like home when you return to London for another chance to rest and take in the delights of the British capital.

And then it’s time to board your floating resort, Celebrity Silhouette, for a sublime, 2-week sojourn to the enchanting, medieval capitals of Scandinavia as well as the breathtaking treasures of St Petersburg and the imperial splendours of Berlin. All good things must come to an end but you’ll always remember with goosebumps the shrill of the Flying Scotsman’s whistle!

Welcome aboard!

Cathedrals Express

to and from Edinburgh

Pullman Style provides a premium railway dining experience. Passengers are seated in either the original Metcam Pullman carriages or refurbished First Class carriages with wood panelling, comfortable seats, table lamps and curtains at the windows. They provide comfortable seats with the most leg room, and combined with the highest level of service, the atmosphere evoking memories of a bygone era. Pullman Style Dining carriages offer tables of four, seated with fellow passengers.

On the outward journey a welcome glass of champagne accompanies breakfast or brunch from London to Yorkshire. From Yorkshire to Edinburgh you will be served a set four-course meal with a complimentary half bottle of wine per person. On the return journey from Edinburgh, you will be welcomed on board with a glass of champagne and be served two meals over the course of the day.
