Copenhagen to Southampton Golf Cruise – 22 August to 9 September 2022 ( 18 Nights)

Copenhagen to Southampton Golf Cruise Highly Inclusive Ultra Luxury Silver Moon
22 August to 9 September 2023 (18 Nights)

18 Nights from circa AUD 18,000 pp twin share for luxury stateroom including economy return airfare – upgradeable to business class for AUD 5,498 pp (excludes costs of optional golf programme)

Trendsetter Travel Golf Tours welcomes you joining us on this delightful golf cruise aboard the ultra-luxury near new 596 (max) passenger Silver Moon, offering a wonderful opportunity to experience beautiful ports and play at up to 13 selected highly regarded golf courses, many of which rate as the leading courses in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Poland, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.  Silver Moon was launched in August 2021 and offers a selection of 8 different restaurants.  Staterooms have a minimum internal area of 31 sqm (which includes separate bath and shower) and unlimited standard wifi.  Balconies add an additional 5 sqm.

The perfect size ship for enjoying smaller ports, you’ll love waking up most mornings in a new location.   All days but two are a port day.  The itinerary is relaxed, offering particularly long port days to maximise your pleasure ashore.  Late August and early September is a perfect time to visit this region – with long hours of sunshine and temperatures will remain pleasantly warm to take advantage of balcony staterooms, or relaxing deck-side.

All Silversea cruises include beverage in suite and throughout the ship (over 80 complimentary wines are available), gratuities, butler service and open seating at restaurants.  Silversea is famous for its guest offering of complimentary “champagne and caviar anytime anywhere” on ship.

Your Silversea fare includes return economy class air fares to Europe/UK (upgradeable to business class for $5,498 pp) – this also includes return home to airport limousine transfers (surcharge applies where the distance exceeds 80 km).  The air programme can be declined with a $1,500 pp air credit available although the complimentary airport transfers remain.  THE CRUISE FARE IS REDUCED BY 5% FOR THOSE FORMING PART OF THE TRENDSETTER GOLF GROUP REGARDLESS WHETHER ANY GOLF IS PLAYED.

Silversea provides one complimentary shore excursion (approximately half the shore excursions offered are complimentary) for each port day – these shore excursions are available to our group (including non-golf partners) on the days you elect to not golf or where no golf is scheduled.  However, on some days, it should be possible to both golf in the afternoon and take a selected Silversea shore excursion in the morning or at least explore the port town either pre or post golf.  You can view all the Silversea shore excursions on the Silversea web page link for this voyage under TAB “Itinerary & Excursions”.

In addition to the cruise and golf programme, Trendsetter Travel offers a competitively priced 2 to 4 night pre-cruise stay in Copenhagen which will include the opportunity to play 2 of Copenhagen’s many highly rated golf courses.

Trendsetter offers a golf programme covering 13 golf courses all at different ports.  You can choose to play no golf, all 13 possible games or any combination between.  Golf costs vary by port but most cost Euro 225 pp/round and include coach transfers, green fees, shared motorised cart, drinks post golf and prize money each round.  In almost all cases, the courses we play are the best available within an acceptable driving distance of each respective port.  We have a bias towards golf clubs which can provide sufficient motorised carts for our tour party – although walking remains an option at most courses.  The golf programme is priced at approximate cost.  Several months in advance of the golf cruise, we will provide a detailed golf programme from which you can make an election as to the courses you wish to play.

We are your tour hosts. We have golfed extensively throughout the world, and have organised and hosted a great number of successful golf cruises (and golf tours), many sailing around Europe.  Unlike many other golf tour operators, we deal directly with the relevant service providers. This enables us to provide competitively priced golf at the best available courses and with no reduction in quality.

In addition to our golf cruises, Trendsetter Travel & Cruise Centre operates a retail travel agency on Sydney’s lower North Shore (since 1992).  We are able to book all of your travel requirements, and as members of the Virtuoso network can offer an excellent choice of hotels – with attractive free benefits – to perfectly complement your luxury golf cruise.

We invite you to join us for yet another exciting luxury golf cruise!

Please note that Silversea now requires all crew and guests to be fully vaccinated at least two weeks prior to their sail date in order to board its ships.

Day 1 – Monday 22 August 2022 – Copenhagen – depart 7 pm

Copenhagen is an attractive port city, the capital of Denmark and the centre of most government and commercial activity.

Your Silversea included air transfer can be made on any day up until 21 August 2022 and to any European city (subject to scheduling and seat availability).

Pre cruise, Trendsetter Travel has provided an optional 3 or 4 night Copenhagen accommodation and golf package (details are available on request).

Today board Silver Moon to commence your 18 night golf cruise.  We will schedule a welcome private cocktail function at approximately 6.30 pm which will allow all the tour party to meet up and Adrienne and David will provide a briefing on the golf cruise with the back drop of sailing out of beautiful Copenhagen.

Day 2 – Tuesday 23 August 2022 – Kariskrona, Sweden (Golf - Game 1) - in port 8am to 6pm

Kariskrona is a city of 66,000 and built over 30 islands. Both historic and scenic, it is now accorded UNESCO World Heritage status.  We hope to have time to both walk around this port city and golf.  Kariskrona is rarely visited by cruise ships.

Golf – Game 1: Today we take a scenic drive 60 minutes south of Kariskrona and play Solvesborgs Golf Club (1989), the region’s # 1 rated golf club.  The course is highly ranked at # 27 in Sweden (Sweden is a golf mad country with over 480 golf courses).  We expect to return in sufficient time to allow a walk around the historic port town of Kariskrona.

Day 3 – Wednesday 24 August 2022 – Gdansk, Poland (Golf – Game 2 ) – in port 8 am to 10pm

Gdansk is a pretty Baltic Port city and our 14 hours in port will allow you to both golf and explore the city.  Gdansk was formerly known as Danzig and the related Danzig corridor which split Germany from Prussia and was one of the key reasons for Germany’s invasion of Poland in September 1939.  Lap up the history of this city.

Golf – Game 2: Golf today is at Sand Valley Golf Course (2009), the # 1 ranked course in Poland (a country with 35 golf courses).  While your hosts have not previously played the course (ranked in the top 100 in Europe), we have only found positive reviews of the golf course and the post golf hospitality. There will be time to independently explore Gdansk on return from golf.

Day 4 – Thursday 25 August 2022 – Klaipeda, Lithuania (Golf - Game 3) - in port 8am to 4pm

Klaipeda is a port city of Lithuania and is the main ice free port on the east side of the Baltic Sea.  Lithuania is the southern most of the 3 Baltic States and has a population of 2.6 million.  As with the other 2 Baltic States, Lithuania faced a tumultuous period from 1917 to 1990 when it was under either German or Russian occupation, apart from nearly 20 years between the 2 world wars when it had independence. Independence was finally restored on a permanent basis in 1990 when the Republic of Lithuania was founded.  In 2004, Lithuania joined both the European Union and NATO.

Golf – Game 3: Today, after a less than 30 minute drive, we play National Golf Resort’s highly rated 18 hole championship course (2009).

Day 5 – Friday 26 August 2021 – Riga, Latvia (Golf - Game 4) - in port 8am to 5.30pm

Riga is a port city with a population of over 600,000 and comprises 1/3rd of Latvia’s population. We berth near the historic precinct and there should be an opportunity to both independently explore Riga and enjoy a game of golf.

Golf – Game 4: We transfer 30 minutes from port and play Ozo Golf Club (2002), # 1 ranked golf course in Latvia.  Built by American golf architect Rob Swedberg and was developed and owned by Sandis Ozolinsh, a local sporting hero whose fame is from the NHL (Ice Hockey) in USA.   Ozo is the nickname of Ozolinsh.

Day 6 – Saturday 27 August 2022 – Tallinn, Estonia (Golf - Game 5) - in port 12.30pm to 11pm

For many, Estonia is a new country to visit.  Within walking distance of the cruise terminal, is the historic city of Tallinn, the capital of Estonia.  This medieval town centre is a must to visit for those not golfing.  Estonia gained its independence from Soviet Union in 1991.

Golf – Game 5:  Today we drive 40 minutes from the port through the Estonian countryside to play Niitvalja Golf Club, one of Estonia’s expanding number of golf clubs.  It has been voted the # 1 course in Estonia for the past 3 years.

Day 7 – Sunday 28 August 2022 – Helsinki, Finland (Golf - Game 6) - in port 8am to 3pm - Golf

Helsinki is a fascinating city to explore either independently or on a ship’s tour.  The city and its shopping precinct is but a short walk from where Silver Moon will berth.  There are two military history museums worth visiting to experience Finland’s turbulent past including its famous Winter War with Russia in late 1939/early 1940 when Finland put up a heroic defence following its unprovoked attack by Russia.  Helsinki was host to the 1952 Olympics.  For those not golfing today, there are 3 complimentary half day Silversea shore excursions with time to independently explore the Helsinki city and port area.

Golf – Game 6: We drive 30 minutes to play Hirsala Golf Club.  Opened in 2007, this highly rated course has hosted the Finnish Open.  Given we have only 7 hours in Helsinki, Hirsala Golf Club has approved our having a multiple tee start from 9.30 am with the option to play in 2 or 3 balls to further speed up play (most groups play in 2 balls on a Sunday morning).

Day 8 – Monday 29 August 2022 – Stockholm (Golf – Game 7) - in port 9.00 am (Overnight) - Golf

Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and one of the loveliest cities in Europe.  It features a beautiful harbour dotted with many islands.   We have scheduled our game in the afternoon to allow time to independently explore Stockholm in the morning.

Golf – Game 7:Bro Hoff Slott is just over a 30 minute drive and its Stadium Course is the number # 1 ranked course in Sweden (and in the top 20 ranked European courses).  Opened in 2007, it was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr and is centred around the renovated Bro Hoff Castle.  A Euro 75 pp surcharge applies.

Day 9 – Tuesday 30 August 2022 – depart port at 5 am – Stockholm/Sea Day

After berthing over-night, we sail out of Stockholm harbour.  The day is spent sailing across the Baltic to our next port visit of Copenhagen.  When your hosts previously sailed across the Baltic Sea, it was near to a Mill Pond – certainly the calmest sea we have ever sailed across.

Day 10 – Wednesday 31 August 2022- Copenhagen (Golf – Game 8) – in port 9 am – 10 pm

We return to Copenhagen for an extensive port day and the opportunity to independently explore the city or take one of the many Silversea shore excursions.  We have scheduled afternoon golf to allow the morning for the golfers to independently explore the city and perhaps take one of the morning Silversea tours.

Golf – Game 8The New Course at The Scandanavian Golf Club is Denmark’s #1 ranked course and in the top 30 European courses.  Built by Robert Trent Jones Jr in 2010, it is less than 30 minute drive.  There is a Euro 60 pp green fee surcharge at The New Course.

Day 11 – Thursday 1 September 2022 – Aalborg (Denmark) (Golf – Game 9) – in port 9 am - 7 pm

Sailing north of Copenhagen, we berth at Aalborg, spending 10 hours in port.  Aalborg (population near 200,000) is Denmark’s 4th largest and most northern city.  It is famous for its Viking heritage.  600 meters across the Limfjord is the twin city of Norresundby, much smaller with a population of less than 30,000.

Golf – Game 9 – today we coach 15 minutes and play Aalborg Golf Club – the 2nd oldest golf club in Denmark, offering 27 holes with the club claiming to be in the 10 best golf courses in Denmark.  Post golf there should be time to explore the town of Aalborg.

Day 12 – Friday 2 September 2022 – Kristiansand (Norway) (Golf – Game 10) – in port 8 am to 4 pm

Kristiansand is Norway’s 5th largest city (population 110,000) and is located near the southern tip of Norway.  It is renowned as a summer holiday destination with over 900,000 tourists each year.

Golf – Game 10:  Today we have a short transfer to play the Robert Trent Jones Jnr designed Bjaavann Golf Club (2003).  Consistently ranked in the top 10 golf courses in Norway (there are over 150 golf courses in Norway), the course is renowned for its beauty and should offer an excellent challenge.

Day 13 – Saturday 3 September 2022 – Bergen (Norway) (Golf – Game 11) – in port 8 am to 7 pm

We berth early and have a full day in Bergen (population 300,000), once the largest city in Norway but now the 2nd largest city after Oslo.  Bergen is located within a group of fjords and most of the city is located near the water with mountains in the backdrop.  For the golfers, there should be time to independently explore the town post golf including its World Heritage waterfront with its crooked pastel-coloured waterhouses.

Golf – Game 11: We travel today to play one Meland Golf Club, one of the two highly rated Bergen golf courses.  Currently ranked # 11 in Norway, this highly rated course is located near a fjord with plenty of water hazards and elevation changes.

Day 14 – Sunday 4 September 2022 – Alesund (Norway) (Golf – Game 12) – in port 8 am to 11 pm

We have a long port day in Alesund and the sun will not set until after 8 pm.  Alesund has a beautiful location and is spread over 7 islands and is surrounded by many fjords.  The city is famous as a fishing port and for its cobbled streets and  Art Nouveau architecture.

Golf – Game 12: Today we visit Alesund Golf Course and play the highly rated Par 72 Solnor Gaard Golf Course.  We have scheduled our golf in the afternoon to enable time to either independently explore Alesund or join a Silversea shore excursion in the morning.

Day 15 – Monday 5 September 2022 – Nordfjordeid (Norway) – in port 8.00 am to 6 pm

No golf is offered today.  Silversea offers only the 1 included shore excursion – this runs for 3 hours.  However there are a number of additional shore tours offered –details of which can be found on the Silversea web page.

Day 16 – Tuesday 6 September 2022 – Flam (Norway) – in port 8 am to 3 pm

We sail along the 204 km Sognefjord and anchor at the picturesque town of Falm with a population of only 400.  No golf today but an opportunity  presents to take one of a number of Silversea shore tours, 3 of which are standard with no additional charges.  The journey out of the fjord in the late afternoon will present many photo opportunities.  No golf is offered today.

Day 17 – Wednesday 7 September 2022 – Stavanger (Norway) (Golf – Game 13) – in port 8 am to 3 pm

We berth today in Stavanger, the 4th largest city in Norway with a population of less than 150,000.  The city’s growth is linked to the offshore oil industry and is known as the oil capital of Norway.

Golf Option – Game 13:  Our final round is played on Norway’s 8th ranked course, Stavanger Golf Club.  Founded in 1956, the course has been a venue for the Norway Open and many other national championships.  Fortunately, the course is a less than 15 minute drive from our berth and thus we can comfortably complete our 18 holes of golf.

Day 18 – Thursday 8 September 2022 – Sea Day

A relaxing day at sea allows you to experience the many on-board facilities which Silver Moon offers.  We will schedule a group lunch (entirely optional) in the main restaurant and make a number of tour golf awards.

Day 19 – Friday 9 September 2022 – Southampton (UK) – arrive 7 am

After a relaxing overnight cruise, we berth early morning in Southampton. While for some, you will have a last chance for a leisurely breakfast, before bidding a final farewell to new friends and old.  For those flying out today, Silversea will provide a complimentary transfer to the airport.
