  • "Cruise virgins"

    As this was our first ever cruise we didn't really know what to expect. We were told it was like a cheesy Las Vegas casino on water - the décor of the ship might have been close to that however it was nothing like a casino. The ship was clean and well looked after and the cabins were also clean. there was a good choice of places to eat (although one part was confusing as there were three restaurants in one place, so we didn't know which part we were sitting in, however the waitress brought all three menus to us to have a look at). The staff that we encountered were all friendly and helpful and overall we had a very lovely experience cruising through the Swedish archipelago on our way to Helsinki. I would definitely recommend this cruise to anyone who is travelling between these two countries as it is cheaper and a far better experience than flying.

  • "Good just for 1 night"

    The ship is a little bit old, the duty free shop not enough items as other ship I went on. Other parts okay!

  • "Party Ferry"

    Excellent overnight trip. The ship has all sorts of facilities, too many to use on a one night journey. We had the cheap tickets it seems so were down on the bottom deck with all the young people taking advantage of the duty free booze. It was great to see them having such a good time. Wish I knew about this ferry 20 years ago.

There are many cultural institutions based in Stockholm and the region in general is home to three of Sweden's UNESCO World Heritage Sites. These are the Drottningholm Palace, Skogskyrkogården (The Woodland Cemetery) and Birka. Stockholm was also named European Capital of Culture in 1998. With over 100 museums, Stockholm has one of the highest number of museums of any other world city. The Nationalmuseum is perhaps the most famous and contains the country's largest collection of art. It has some 16,000 paintings and 30,000 objects of art handicraft. The oldest items in the collection date back to the 16th century and has been expanded with works by artists such as Rembrandt and Antoine Watteau.

Stockholm's port is a major gateway to Sweden and is therefore an important port for both freight and passengers travelling to and from Finland, Russia and the Baltic States. The port is close to the city centre where all of the usual facilities you would expect to find in a major city are located.
