409 Rostock (Warnemunde) Cruise Reviews

We hired a 7 seater van and drove to a beach location about an hour from Rostock. It was lovely to visit the countryside.

I knew nothing of Warnemunde before arriving and am glad because had I done so, I would probably gone with everyone else to Berlin. As it is, Berlin is probably worthy of a few days and not top of my list but Warnemunde was a revelation. It is a stylish, sweet, charming place, sort of caught in a time warp. It is so clean! The beach is wonderful and goes on for miles. As you follow the beachside promenade, it turns into a foot/bridle path after about half a mile, and this path goes on for about 4 miles, through pretty woodland. There is a pretty Hotel on the Cliffside, rather Swiss in appearance with a verandah that hangs over the beach with views back to Warnemunde and over the sea. I would have liked to visit Rostock which was easily accessible on the train from Warnemunde but I just ran out of time and walked about 4 miles instead. Try the smoked fish on sale at many waterside kiosks here, the Butter fish is delicious. Access to and from the mooring is flat and about 400m walk from the ship to the town centre. Read Less

Warnemunde is the port for Berlin, a 3 hour coach trip away. We didn't fancy the long drive so explored the very pretty little town of Warnemunde and then caught the train to Rostock, a short distance away. Travel instructions are available in the local port store. Rostock is much bigger and busier and an interesting old town. Read Less

Our fist port of call and therefore our tour to Berlin was cancelled by the captain at around 07.00 hrs in the morning due to strong winds that made it impossible for the ship to reach the port. Princess tried hard to find an alternative solution and they really made the best of it. They decided to anticipate the sea day and to arrive the next day (ahead of schedule) in the afternoon in Stockholm. Read Less

My husband speaks fluent German, so we opted to go on our own in this port. With Berlin being a 3 hour train ride away, we skipped it. I had heard about the town of Schwerin on these boards and with some research, we decided that was it. We purchased train tickets ahead of time online for $115 for both of us. Once leaving the ship, the train station was just to the right, past the ferry, about a 5 minute walk. We changed trains in Rostock and the total travel time was about an hour and a half. In Schwerin, it took about 10 minutes to walk from the main station to the center of town. Their main boulevard had lots of cute shops and we stumbled into the middle of a festival. Their town square had a good tourist info stop. The Schwerin Cathedral was nice inside, but we skipped paying to climb to the top. I imagine it was a good view, but it was drizzling when we were there. The walk to the Palace was about another 10 minutes and the gardens were very pretty. It was about $6pp to tour the inside. The inside was just OK. We had lunch at one of the many cafes back in town. After taking the train back to Warnemunde, we had plenty of time to walk around town. It was a lot cuter than I had expected. There were shops along a canal and deeper into town, a cute church and plenty of bakeries. Read Less

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.

Small town, based on length of stay, any travel to Berlin was impossible (5 hrs in port) very disappointing

This was a super boring town. We walked all over it, saw the beach, the "tea pot", etc. The stores were just normal stores like you'd find at any mall. The problem was that the ship could not skip this port because it was picking up other passengers. When the weather was too rough to dock, instead of skipping it and going on to Estonia (Tallinn), we skipped Estonia and spent a day just sitting in the water so we could be sure to get this super-boring port. Not. Cool. Read Less

We had booked an excursion to Loobeck. On the day I was too ill to travel the hour and a half each way on a coach to visit the town. We went down to the tour desk but it was not possible to cancel the tickets and as we had already booked a trip at Skagen, we could not apply the cost to another trip. We lost $198 on that non excursion. We walked into the small port about 10 minutes from the ship, had some lunch and walked back. It was a very touristy place full of shops selling touristy goods. Nothing to see that you could not see in any small town anywhere in the world. Not a very good choice. Waste of $99 x 2 = $198The other port is not shown here. Whoever thought SKAGEN IN DENMARK was worthy of a port of call by Queen Victoria on a Baltic cruise? Waste of $92 x 2 = $184. Read Less

We took the train to Schwerin -- a beautiful town with a stunning castle. I highly recommend this trip for families. Follow Rostocker's advice/website on this trip, because Hal will not have any information. The local hospitality representative told me to just go to Rostock, it was too difficult. She was wrong!! We had a wonderful day -- fabulous strudel at the train station in Schwerin -- enjoyed the walk into town (around a little harbor), enjoyed going through the castle, and later found a fantastic mall. We walked around Warnemunde later in the evening, had brats and beer -- loved this long day in port. Read Less

Beautiful and Friendly. We took the train (26 Euros/ 5 persons/ All Day) to Wismar. Had a private walking tour of the city then returned on the train. The walking tour was booked through the Wismar Tourist Information Center, 2 Hours, English speaking guide, 57 Euros. After returning to the port we walked around the area, as there were many sailing ships in the port for the Hanse. They surrounded our vessel as we sailed away from the port. Read Less

Warnemunde has very little to offer the tourist. If you want to spend the day at the beach you will be happy. Most passengers took the reserved trains to Berlin, a four hour round trip, for an eight hour tour. I chose a bicyle tour of the country side, lunch included. It was brutal for this 65 year old, more miles than I had expected. Read Less

We didn’t want to travel all the way to Berlin, so decided to just stay close to the ship. I wish I had done some sort of tour in the area. We had difficulties getting a train to Rostock ( would not take credit cards, thankfully a nice couple told us about an app we could get tic with) and it was a bit frustrating for a lot of people. When we got to Rostock, we had lunch (good food, horrible service), and then walked around. Everything was closed except for restaurants. It was Sunday. So it was a bit of a bust. Read Less
