We arrived in Stockholm at 8.30 at sailed at 16.30. The ship was berthed a little way from the city centre. The ship provided a shuttle bus, but charged £5.00 per person return fare. We asked about walking in but were told it was too far. If you are reasonably fit it wasn't too far and probably took about 20 minutes, although it wasn't a particularly attractive walk. Once off the boat I noticed a tourist information office on the quayside. We would have been better going there and asking their advise on getting around Stockholm. I know that you could buy one day tickets for the ferry boats. Stockholm Old Town (Gaml Stan) great. Full of narrow cobbled streets which lead onto the main square. There are pleny of places to visit such as the Royal Palace where you can see the changing of the guard at midday. One of the most popular atttractions is the Vasa Museum. This is where the warship Vasa, which capsized and sank on her maiden voyage in 1628 is displayed. We took a ferry over to the Vasa, but the queue was long so we didn't go in. If you want to visit the Vasa I would recommend you go first thing in the morning. The sail out of Stockholm is fantastic The channel was fairly narrow in places and we sailed past island after island. It took about three hours until we hit the open sea. Read Less

We then continued on to the palace and saw the changing of the guard and then continued the rest of the boat tour and returned to the ship for a late lunch. Read Less

My husband and I selected the excursions Princess offered, so in Stockholm we first went to see City Hall where Noble Prizes are awarded.  The hall features mosic tile which covers the walls in very intricate designs.  From there we traveled to see the Vasa Museum that we found to be very interesting.  Three hundred years ago, the Sweeds built a very large ship and thought it would sail but it sank in 100' of water not to be discovered until 1950 when it was brought to the surface in wonderful condition.  There was no place to put this ship, Stockholm constructed a special building to house and show off this prize.

Stockholm was a bit wet unfortunately, and if we hadn't booked to go to the Absolut Ice Bar, we wouldn't have got off the boat.  We had to tender off the boat, mainly as Queen Vic was in our slot, and we'd arrived late.  Big plus point of Stockholm, the absolutely awesome archipelago, offering great views.  On the way out, get up to the Metropolis bar on deck 18!Rated 4 for the archipelago only, couldn't comment properly on the city as it was too wet to appreciate.

Excellent city - shame it rained all day which menat we concentrated on indoor activities - a covered boat ride and visiting the royal palace and cathedral.  The use of tenders worked well as we arrived directly in the core of the city. There would have been plenty else to have seen.  Beautiful city and the views as you sail away are great. Read Less
