– Charles C.,
Season 2016, Regal Princess

"Our ship docked in Nynashamn, not downtown Stockholm, as the winds were too high. So Alla did the trip to downtown Stockholm. It was worth it to see the countryside and not just the downtown area. Stockholm has a ton of museums. We spent about 45 minutes in the Vasa Museum. The museum itself is absolutely stunning, built around one of the most prominent naval engineering disasters in Swedish history – the warship Vasa – which upon launching sailed about 200 yards, capsized and sank. The ship is very impressive when you are standing beside it. It is preserved magnificently. The artwork, the sculptures, the timbers of the ship – it’s just so impressive – BUT did I mention the ship sank hours after launching? It turns out to be a calculational blunder as the extra deck of guns was added without widening her hull at all. Her ‘sister’ ship was built 2 feet wider and sailed successfully for many years. For me one of the most interesting talks our guide gave in the museum was the 3 minute Swedish history lesson on the map at the museum. He covered 3000 years in 3 minutes that would take 3 years in a University, and made it funny and interesting. After the museum we had free time to wander around old town using the palace area as the focal point."

Itinerary
Day 1
08:00   
A warm meet and greet with your expert guide and driver on the pier
08:00 - 09:00 
Drive from the port of Nynashamn to Stockholm
09:00 - 10:15 
City highlights driving tour along the embankments with the views of well-preserved Renaissance palaces of the 17-18th centuries - the Houses of the Swedish Parliament, the Royal Opera, the Royal Palace, the Royal Dramatic Theatre - and the popular bohemian districts featuring many impressive examples of Jugendstil (Art Nouveau) architecture
   
Photo stops at Riddarholmen Island and Fjlallgatan view point with a breathtaking panorama over the Old Town, Djurgarden and the island of Skeppsholmen
10:15 - 11:30 
Guided tour of the Vasa Museum, home of the 17th century Royal warship "Vasa". In 1628, the Vasa sailed from Stockholm on her maiden voyage and sank immediately due to major flaws in her construction design. She was salvaged over 300 years later and is today the world's only existing 17th century ship. You will view the Vasa from six different levels.
11:30 - 11:45 
Scenic drive to Gamla Stan, an amazingly well-preserved Old Town where Stockholm was founded in 1252
11:45 - 12:45 
Walking tour of Gamla Stan with its narrow winding cobblestone streets and medieval alleys including Stortorget (The Big Square), the oldest square in Stockholm, Marten Trotzigs alley, the narrowest alley in Gamla Stan (only 90 cm wide), Jarnpojke (Iron Boy), the smallest public monument in Stockholm (only 15 cm high)
12:45 - 14:00 
Free time in Gamla Stan to enjoy some local cuisine, shopping or visiting one of the many fabulous museums. Just a few ideas: Sweden's National Cathedral; the Nobel Museum; the Royal Armory Museum, where you may have a chance to see the parade of soldiers and the daily changing of the guard; Riddarholmen Church, a royal burial church that was built as a Franciscan monastery for the so-called Grey Brother monks in the 13th century.
14:00 - 15:00 
Drive back to the port of Nynashamn
15:00   
Arrival at the pier
