Found this City Bus tour right outside the port. It was only 35Euros and it was a half day tour. It started at 10am and gave us free time in the city and dropped us off at 12 and picked us up at 2:30. We were back on the ship by 3pm.

We did this tour because we didn't want to spend virtually all day on the train to/from Berlin. It was not all that interesting of a town. We much more enjoyed our personal walk through Warnemunde, a wonderful seaside town.

This was a freebie, and we enjoyed it more than we anticipated. Rostock is a charming place to explore and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We also had time to wander about pretty Warnemunde before lunch!

The tour guide was informative & the tour was enjoyable. We went by bus into Rostock & then returned via a sightseeing boat which dropped us off about 3/4 to a mile from the Eclipse. I felt sorry for the older people, especially those using canes or walkers, because of the long walk back to the ship. We were late in sailing because of quite a few people who had trouble walking that distance. Read Less

SPB did a good job although we were put on a rickety bus from warnemunde to rostock and then the guide while friendly and helpful was not very familiar with the city herself.

This was interesting and our tour guide had great stories to tell of the city under communist rule. The only downside of this tour was that we were there on a bank holiday, so much of the city was closed - not the fault of the cruise line or the tour guide. We opted not to go into Berlin because we wanted a more relaxed day, which we spent enjoying the beautiful ship! Read Less
