Within walking distance. Go to old Stockholm town, plenty of historic places to see and lovely to spend on hour in 1 of the many street cafes

We've been to Stockholm before, so we chose to walk around on our own. Best Tip: hit the Gamla Stan (old town) early in the morning, in the afternoon it is totally full with tourists as the cruise ships make their tours there in the afternoon. Tip #2: Public toilets are hard to find and when you do you have to pay (10SKR), BUT most don't take change, so you have to use a credit card or buy a ticket at the cash register (as was the case at the palace), buying something doesn't qualify you for a free toilet ticket, even in restaurants. The bathrooms are Unisex, so there are half as many toilets as you would normally have! At tourist sites, the lines are LONG! So if you have bladder issues, pack your Depends, because you will have to hold it for a long time before you ever make it to the WC. Read Less

Walked around city Old Town then took the HOHO boat to the Vasa Museum. Amazing and well worth the time and money.

The weather was rainy and cool, but we enjoyed a day in Djurgarden at the Vasa museum and Skansen open air folk museum. The public bus was easy to catch across the street from the port. There was a ticket machine that some had trouble with or you could download an app. We walked to the TI at the far end of the pier (closer to the RCCL ship when were there) to buy day passes.

We took a cab to the Vasa Museum for about $23. We could have walked there but we probably won’t have had the energy to walk and explore on the way back. The museum is the first HOHO stop and people beat us there from the ship because the docks are under construction and busses can use a separate lane that goes faster. I think the HOHO was $20pp so we ended up saving money and the museum never got packed. We loved the Vasa museum. I almost couldn’t get my husband to leave. Just a lot of amazing history there and the irony if a ship sinking on its maiden voyage is amusing. We walked along the water and into old town. We stopped and hadn’t Swedish pancakes (when in Sweden...) at Stortorvet number 3 which is from 1640. So cool! We wandered the streets and alleys and eventually stopped for a beer and heading to the ship. Read Less

Vasa Museum and Old Town were great but be careful of the restaurants in Old Town! We got charged extra to split a pizza between the 2 of us for lunch! I plan to do a review on Trip Advisor on this restaurant.

Our shore excursion with a walking tour and the Royal Palace was cancelled at the last minute by Princess. This was a problem because we were going to meet an important friend from high school after the excursion. The Princess front desk was indifferent to our plight. We were able to text our friend and made new arrangements on our own. She gave us an excellent tour of her beautiful city ending at the Gondolen bar overlooking the harbor. Read Less
