Stockholm Gothenburg Visby

Cruising to Sweden

Stockholm has long been a popular port for turnarounds in the Baltic – and for good reason. The geographical location in the heart of the Baltic Sea, a large international airport less than 30 minutes from the city, several modern and centrally located cruise piers, a large variety of quality hotels and an overall excellent level of service and reliability combine to make Stockholm a convenient turnaround point for a Baltic/Scandinavian cruise.

Apart from turnarounds, Stockholm also makes a popular port of call – the compact city center with its wealth of sights and museums, the tax-free shopping opportunities, the mouth-watering delights of New Nordic Food and much more combine to make Stockholm a highly enjoyable port of call for cruise guests. So much so that Sweden was awarded the title of ‘Europe’s Best Cruise Destination 2013’ by Cruise International Awards. But Sweden is more than just Stockholm.

With more than 25.000 kilometers of coastline, counting only the largest of the more than 220.000 islands, Sweden is an easy and beautiful destination to access and enjoy from the sea. We have chosen to feature 3 Swedish cruise ports in this section but there are many more ports offering possibilities for cruise ship calls and opening up gateways into many corners of the kingdom – inquire about possibilities. Several navigable fjords, straits and archipelagos also offer rich possibilities for scenic cruising in Swedish waters – cruising through the Stockholm archipelago going in or out of Stockholm is an experience in itself.
