A bus driver gave us a free ride to the terminal. enjoyed walking through cobbled streets of the old town of Stockholm, pass the palace and the church, through to the new city across the bridge. We forgot to get the name of the cruise port to return to the ship, so we had to rely on a taxi driver to get us back to the correct port. Read Less

Stockholm – we walked to the dock next to the ship to board the s.s. Emilie water taxi at 8:28am. We bought the all-day ticket at senior rate on the boat with a credit card. It took us to the Vasa museum, then at 10:38am to the market ... Read More
Stockholm – we walked to the dock next to the ship to board the s.s. Emilie water taxi at 8:28am. We bought the all-day ticket at senior rate on the boat with a credit card. It took us to the Vasa museum, then at 10:38am to the market Square. We walked to the Royal Palace and viewed the changing of the guards and the parade. At 1pm we did a free walking tour from the Gamla Stan train station. Our guide Anna was a Canadian from Montreal studying in Stockholm. Not as experienced as others we’ve had. When the tour finished we returned to market square at 2:50pm to take s.s. Emilie at 2:50 back to the ship (20 minutes). Read Less

Ship docked in Nynashamn instead of Stockholm 1-hour bus shuttle (fee paid by guests) to Stockholm Reduced time in Stockholm Chaotic bus logistics for the return to the ship – exhausted seniors told to wait for 2 ½ more hours for the “correct” bus transport to return to ship, even though seating was available on the existing buses. Ship docked on Saturday following Midsummer Festival kickoff – most shops and stores in Stockholm were closed. This is an event known to occur at least 1 year in advance. Extremely poor planning by NCL. Read Less

Not a city known by a lot of people. Why not? It is one of the most pictoresque cities I've ever seen. It has a beautiful old city center, musea, culture, sites. I was glad we spent two days there!

we are here for 2 days and so we get hop-on-hop-off bus tickets for 2 days, this gives us the ability to get around for the time and well worth the money spent. It also gives you a boat tip around, with hop-on-hop-off privilleges as well.... Read More

Pre-purchased 48-hour Stockholm card and what a bargain! It combined admissions with the Hop On/Off bus/boat ticket. On day 1, we made reservations to take the shorter 50-minute boat ride at the end of the day. On day 2, we took the longer 135-minute boat ride to the lake and back through the locks, where it was amazing to see folks on the small boats holding onto ropes as the water rose/fell. Enjoyed the Vasa Museum 15-minute film with English subtitles so we didn't have to wait until next showing. Read Less

Very lovely stop full of history and great to walk around the Old Town. Check and see where your cruise ship will park, as some dock away from town. Open Top bus was a great option as they do stop at most piers.

Took the hop on hop off bus again, also did a lot of walking in between, worth a visit again quite a big area to see, so the bus option was good we felt.

Hate to blame NCL but the blame is theirs to take. Our port itinerary changed from Stockholm to Nynashavn ( 1hr train ride away or 1h 40min bus ride away from Stockholm). We received a flyer in our room, apologizing for the change and NCL offered guests who booked prior to the change notice (which essentially involves almost everyone, since we booked 3 months before and we did not knew the port change) for a free bus and train transfer to Stockholm. To claim it, you have to go to the Guest Services, and you've guessed it another long unruly lines to claim your freebies. And it was indeed a shuttle bus, then a train ride. No direct transfer amigo. But they extended the port time by 4 hours so all was good. We planned to return 4 hours before the on-board time, because we ran out of things to do. Alas, the train service in Stockholm broke down and no service to Nynashavn for unknown time. To make worse the announcement were in Swedish, we waited at the train station confused that the scheduled train has been late for almost an hour. Until one arrived which everyone, locals and tourists alike, try to squeeze in, only to be told to get out again at the next stop. Then a bunch of NCL people gathered telling people to wait there. NCL will send bus to pick us up there. That is the passenger talking btw. Then 20 minutes passed? Then everyone suddenly rushed out to the street near bus terminals. Some passengers were hailing taxis. The rest of four hundreds just piled along the street. And in the end, we arrived 15 minutes post departure time. To which 200 passengers have not yet returned to the ship. And later it was announced that the ship departure time will be delayed for 3 hours and the stranded passengers being picked up by NCL bus. A good gesture from NCL. But quite late for us. Read Less

Nice city with a lot to see. Unfortunately we had to be back at the ship by 1:30 pm, so too early. At least our ship docked in a place with easy access to the city via ferry, which I recommend since it is a nice way to tour the city by boat, see the islands and avoid the traffic. Read Less

Need to download app to buy bus tickets... and the time starts from the moment you make payment so you can't buy in advance... and if you do not have internet access on your phone... then you are out of luck on public transportation. Visited Vasa Museum to see the ship and the city. Has a wonderful lunch at Borgmästarn Restaurang & Bar and took a free walking tour. Wish we had more time as the city seems to have much more to offer. Not cheap though. A bus ticket cost over US$5 each. Read Less
