This was one of my favorites, because it was a beautiful day and I walked all around the town. Many shops and restaurants, and a nice beach. You can walk from the ship, but we didn't know that, so we took a taxi.

The port's name is WARNEMUNDE! Berlin is 3 hours away and does not have a sea port. Many of our fellow cruisers took the tour to Berlin, so they spent about 6 hours on the highway. Thankfully the stop was very long, arrived at early morning, departure at 9 p.m., so there was plenty of time. We took the local train to Rostock downtown. Warnemunde is part of Rostock, it's the sea port. Both Warnemunde and Rostock downtown are looovely. It you'd prefer to skip the stressful Berlin trip, then both places have plenty to offer and you can spend the entire day there. Cosy place with lots of Gemutlichkeit :-) Read Less

Pretty German town - nice park - nice to walk around and see the boats, ice cream shops and cafes. The beach is really lovely and you can rent a cabana and hang out at the beach. We didn't do an organized tour but loved the day.

We embarked here. There is no elevator when you are trying to cross the train tracks so good luck lugging your luggage up and down the 2 flights of stairs.

Warnemunde is a lovely seaside resort. There is a beautiful white sand beach that you can spend the day at although the sea was too cold for me! There are lovely shops and a climb up the lighthouse costing only €3 is fully worth it. We also took the train to Rostock. A station staff member was on hand to help with tickets. It cost €5.20 for a day ticket for one person but also the same for a group ticket for two adults and three children! From Rostock station we took a tram to Neuer Markt and then walked around this nice little town. There are walking tours which are available but not on the day we were there! Both Rostock and Warnemunde are great places so I wouldn't bother going into Berlin as it's a couple of hours there and back. Read Less

We enjoyed our time in both Rostock and Warnemunde. We started in Warnemunde. We walked around and explored the town and spent some time by the beach. We then took the train into Rostock where we explored the pedestrian mall.

Took a German harbor tour, climbed the lighthouse, had lunch on the boardwalk, and did some light shopping. The cruisers who went to Berlin said it was great.

Walking around Warnemunde was very relaxing. It is a cute seaside village with great restaurants and coffee houses. The excursion to Berlin is very tiring with three hours travel each way so we dd not do that.

Easy (and much cheaper than the excursion) to take the Blue Line Ferry from near the cruise terminal to Rostock which is a lovely Hanseatic town well worth a wander. On return Warnemunde is a delightful seaside town in which to spend an hour or 2. Nothing startling to see but a very pleasant day out. Beware if you have disabilities though the taxis from the terminal will not take you anywhere other than a very expensive ride to Rostock or Berlin and it is quite a walk to the ferry. Read Less

We walked off the ship and took the train to Rostock. It's easy. Rostock is interesting, but you need to remember that it has been almost entirely rebuilt since WW II.

Warnemunde was very charming, we took the train to Rostock then to Schwerin Castle. Each city was easy to find and navigate on foot.

Most people took the all-day excursion to Berlin, but we felt that would be too much. The Warnemunde train station is within walking distance of the cruise port. We bought train tickets to Rostock for about four euros return. We were here about 20 years ago--not long after the wall came down--so it was interesting to see how the city had evolved. Good walkable historic section and pedestrian shopping area. And now there is a big mall at the edge of the old town. Read Less

We just walked around Warnemunde, a really sweet town. A warning though - we walked towards the beach and got bitten by sand flies. We should have remembered the insect repellent.
