Stockholm is hands down one of my favourite cities and it was awesome to head back there recently on my Princess Cruise and spend a day exploring it again. If you are planning a longer visit then also check out my weekend in Stockholm without breaking the bank post, or to see what you can explore in one day scroll down.
If you are arriving on a cruise you’ll either dock in the city, which is nearer but actually means less time on land due to port rules, or dock in Nynashamn which is further out but allows for more time to explore.
This article is part of a series on my Princess Cruise trip through the Baltic Sea. You can read all about the cruise here or jump to specific guides for each destination by click on its name: Oslo | Copenhagen | Helsinki | Tallinn | St Petersburg | Stockholm
Time in port: Varies depending if docking in the city or Nynashamn. We docked in Nynashamn so had longer, 7 am – 7 pm
(time in port can vary depending on departure date, you can check exact timings on the Princess website)
Transport/distance: If in the city, short walk. If Nynashamn, around an hour by bus or train
Excursions available: With excursions around both Stockholm and the fishing villages of Nynashamn available there is plenty to pick from, but the rooftop tour of Stockholm, complete with a safety harness, is by far one of the most exciting.
