Schwerin castle guide was good.
Schwerin castle guide was good. Shore excursion guide wasn't able to ensure all guests were consistently with the tour. She left people stranded.

NCL pitches this port as an opportunity to visit Berlin. Sure, if you enjoy hours in a bus and few hours in one of the great cities of the world, burning rubber between photo ops and then more hours in a bus to get back in a single day. We decided to book the more rational "Hanseatic Rostock and Fairytale Schwerin Shore Excursion." It is about an hour away and you spend the day going through a charming medieval city and castle. The Viator tour cost $245 for two people and the entire experience went smoothly. As one would expect in Germany. Lots of great photo opportunities. Read Less

Karin was an amazing guide. She was very informative and interesting. The Schwerin castle was like a fairytale castle. We enjoyed the lunch. Walked through the town which was quaint and very beautiful.

Whilst most people headed for the included Berlin tour, Schwerin was fantastic. The castle has a fairy tale look and was approached by boat. inside, you were allowed to take photos (subject to purchase of a camera licence for three euro). The town is also very pretty, but more free time here would have been nice. Our ship was actually docked in Warnemunde. We were there on a Sunday when there was lots going on - outdoor eateries and entertainment and locals promenading. This was highly atmospheric and I would recommend that you do look around Warnemunde before boarding your vessel again. Read Less

We skipped the Rostock/Warnemunde stock tours and rented a car through Sixt and hot-tailed to Schwerin for lunch and the Castle tour) and then Lubeck which we were able to do (comfortably) with time to spare and a two hour guided tour (won't give you the guide's name as he was not very good). It was a fun and interesting experience and the car rental was easy as pie (we booked on line) and got a terrific Audi. The whole trip cost about 130 euros which included the gas fill up at the end of the trip. We even got an English speaking GPS system that was a life saver. Read Less
