Our objective was to see the Vasa. As it's across the harbor, the best way to get to it is to get the Hop-0on / Hop-off boat at the cruise terminal over to the other side. The Vasa is great, and afterward, walking around the port is very nice. The cruise into and out of port is one of the most beautiful and breathtaking you will ever see. Read Less

Beautiful city but I spent over 25 euros on a teeny wooden painted horse!

Great walkable city. Do the Vassa Museum first. Take the hop on hop off boat from the cruise doc. You can buy tickets on the boat. Can get around the harbor to see all sites on this boat. Very informative.

We used the hop on hop off boat right at the pier. No need to buy tickets ahead of time you can buy them right at the boat. $20. Do not use the hop on hop off bus they get stuck in traffic. Our first stop was the Vasa museum. Well worth a visit. We went into the city center. We watched the changing of the guards at the palace. They have a full marching band. Fun old town area with shopping and restaurants. Read Less

Visited Vasa museum which is brilliant. Two main tips...go there first thing, queues were massive by lunchtime as we left. And tickets are available on the boat. We queued immediately on leaving the ship at a ticket booth for 15 mins in the pouring rain before we realised we didn't need to. Just follow red line for the boats a short walk away. The first boats break their route to go directly to the Vasa then on the way back you see a few sights before reaching the old town. Again we followed Rick Steve in the old town which is a lovely place, really quaint and far more picturesque than I expected. There's a lot of building work going on near the river but it doesn't spoil the town experience. It is walkable back to the ship so you save your kroner and avoid buses or trams Read Less

Lovely city but rainy day. Lots of stores for shopping. We took a taxi off the boat. Paid 300 Kr going in and 200 coming back, so be careful of the taxi prices. Get a set price before you get in, don't take one that says price ... Read More
Lovely city but rainy day. Lots of stores for shopping. We took a taxi off the boat. Paid 300 Kr going in and 200 coming back, so be careful of the taxi prices. Get a set price before you get in, don't take one that says price depends on the meter. We tried to ride the subway back to the boat but it wouldn't take our mastercard and they wouldn't take Euros.

We got off the ship as quickly as possible and purchased a one-way ferry ticket for 55 kroner to the Vasa Museum. We arrived there right after 8:30, so it had just opened and there were not many people there yet. By the time we left at 11:15, it was packed. It was very smart to get there early. Also, we liked the Vasa Museum more than we thought we would; we would highly recommend it. Then, we bought another one-way ticket to Gamla Stan, or Old Town. (It would have cost about the same to buy a HOHO ferry ticket as it did for 2 one-way tickets.) Our friend took the walking tour recommended by Rick Steves in his "Northern European Cruise Ports" book (highly recommended book), and my husband and I just bummed around shopping and stopping at cafes. We all had a great time. However, we had read that we could walk back to our ship from Gamla Stan in 30 minutes, and it actually took 50 minutes at a fast pace, due to road construction. We were glad we had given ourselves a little extra time to return to our ship. Read Less

We took the HOHO bus due to the lack of time available in this port. We would have much preferred to have longer here. It is a shame that there isn't a later sailaway. We watched the changing of the Guards which was very interesting & wandered around Gamla Stadd. We were concerned about getting back for the early sailaway & felt that the time alloted at this port was insufficient. Read Less

Visited the Royal Palace and watched the changing of the guard, and visited a couple of house museums. Great fun, very inexpensive.

Embarkation. Very smooth quick and well organised but we didn't really see the town. Very scenic cruise out of the harbour.
