Probably our favorite port, since weather was good. Stockholm is about 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes away from Nynashamn, which is nice as well. Your ship could say tender required, but it is actually a floating gangway, which is very wide and essentially a regular gangway on giant buoys. It is completely safe. Gamla Stan Stockholm is nice to stroll around, and be sure to try Nutella ice cream if you stumble apon it. Skansen is an outdoor museum/zoo about folk life in Sweden, which you should check out.

Book a scavenger hunt - 100 point challenge. It was a great way (even in the rain and cold) to discover the city and a welcomed change from classic tours

Our Captain gave us passengers a treat, we were actually able to dock there instead of tendering in. We again decided to do a tour on our on. Beautiful city, shops and restaurants.

Don’t take the cruise excursion. It was terrible. We left the group and went on our own. A beautiful city

Best stop by far....DO NOT MISS THE VASA MUSEUM! Spend the rest of the day with a walk around Gamla Stan and the small street shops

I hesitated giving 5 stars here (due to NCL transfer debacles), but ultimately gave 5 stars because Stockholm is awesome. Our group all left with the consensus that Stockholm was the one port we were left wanting to go back to, and that we needed another full day or two to experience it. City Hall tour was very cool. Walking thru Gamla Stan was more exciting than anticipated, and you find something new down every street. This is a place needing to be explored more deeply. Ferry over to Djurgarden provides MANY more options of things to do, including Grona Land, ABBA Museum, Skansen, Vasa Museet, and more. We found Vasa Museet to be slightly disappointing, due to poor lighting and small confined space preventing you from getting a good view of the entire amazing ship. The biggest negative to this port is that Norwegian Cruise Lines has majorly screwed up the transportation from Nynashamn. While we booked 390+ days out before the port was changed to Nynashamn and told by NCL months ago that they would provide free transport, we had to argue with them to get the free transport, and they claimed that we did not book before the change. If you take the free transport, they force you to choose from only two predetermined bus times, both of which cut your port time short by three hours. This was a debacle. Others on ship who took NCL excursions into Stockholm also said that they were disasters. The best method of transportation (which we took) is the train, directly from Nynashamn to Stockholm City. However, on return there was track maintenance which forced everyone off at one station, onto buses which were hard to find, and then dropped at another station to complete the train journey. NCL could easily arrange a transportation option for all on train, smoothing it for everyone. Doing this would allow negotiations for ensuring maintenance was not being done during the much-needed return trip time, or bus options properly arranged. However, the reasons for diverting to Nynashamn in the first place is suspect, and likely due to NCL not wanting to pay Stockholm port fees. All other ships were docked in Stockholm, with none in Nynashamn. I've heard NCL claiming issues sailing the Archipelago (as was advertised when we booked), although all the ships we saw docked in Stockholm clearly had no problems as well as the identical NCL Getaway last year. In summary, Stockholm is awesome and really needs to be two days and docked directly in Stockholm. Norwegian has turned Nynashamn into a debacle.

Very disappointed since we were told at the last minute that we were't going to Stockholm and he had to make different arrangements than theonce we had planned. I had to spend extra money on train and taxi that they were not.on my budget and to this date I have not been reinbursed. It was very disaapointed and very upsetting. Not a good experience at all very stressful.

Only Norwegian excursion we took was in Stockholm. Old town, Vasa Museum, and the Ice Bar. Unfortunately, our bus got the early reservation for the Ice Bar which was before 11am and we weren't served alcohol, just fruit juice. Everyone was pretty disappointed by that, but we went to the Ice Bar on the ship the next day and made up for it. The Vasa Museum and Old town were well worth the time.

Be ready for a lengthy trip into Stockholm. Train station is about a 15 - 20 minute walk from where you tie up, then you have a 1 hour 10 minute trip to town. Central Station is really centrally located and it is an easy walk to Old Town for sight seeing.
