Cruise to Stockholm
Travelling to Stockholm by cruise ship is perhaps the most pleasant way of getting to the Swedish metropolis: the journey from the open Baltic Sea through the Stockholm archipelago is one of the most beautiful harbour entrances in the world.
Providers, routes and prices
Meanwhile, all major shipping companies offer cruises with a stop in Stockholm, which also take their guests to other Baltic Sea metropolises such as Copenhagen, Tallinn, St. Petersburg or Helsinki, depending on the route. The two major providers with German as the on-board language are AIDA and TUICruises(Mein Schiff). In addition, the large international shipping companies (e.g. MSC, Costa) as well as several smaller German providers offer cruises with a stop in the port of Stockholm (e.g. Hansa Touristik).
The prices for a cruise to Stockholm depend strongly on the travel period (high or low season), the chosen cabin (inside, outside or balcony cabin) and the travel duration. With AIDA and TUICruises, there are already offers for shorter routes in the low season for considerably less than 1000 euros/person.
With AIDA to Stockholm
AIDA Cruises is the market leader for cruises in German-speaking countries. With the concept of a “club ship”, a relaxed atmosphere without fixed table times and dress code and affordable prices, it appeals to all age groups. With its 14 medium-sized ships, AIDA also calls at Stockholm several times a year, both on shorter and longer routes on the Baltic Sea. The voyage always starts in Warnemünde or Kiel. A current route overview can be found on the homepage of AIDA Cruises:
With Mein Schiff to Stockholm
Very similar to AIDA, but perhaps a bit more luxurious are the “Mein Schiff” cruise ships of TUICruises. Here, too, there is a lot of comfort at a very good price-performance ratio. The premium all-inclusive concept, where all drinks on board are already included in the price, deserves special mention. The “Mein Schiff” fleet also makes frequent stops in Stockholm, the routes usually start in Kiel.
In addition to the two large German providers AIDA and TUICruises, there are also numerous international and smaller German shipping companies that have cruises with a stop in Stockholm in their program:
Azamara, Carnival, Celebrity, Costa, Cunard, Disney, Hapag Lloyd, Majesty, MSC , Oceania, Open Sea, Phoenix, Princess, Pullmantur, Regent Seven Seas, Royal Caribbean, Sea Cloud, SilverSea and Star Clippers.
