Cannot say a bad word about this hotel. The breakfast was great, the muesli with fresh berries and the yummy boiled eggs were a great start to each day! The shared bathrooms were great, each time we used them they were always all free and clean.

We don't have to meet until 15.15 for the boat so decide to visit the Town Hall that dominates the shoreline close to the hotel. It does not disappoint.

... Amusement Park, City Hall, the Restaurant & main shopping strips & boulevards, park lands, bays, islands, before returning to the ship. Stockholm was one of the best cities we have visited on our tour to date.
Once back on board, we have a late lunch (Chinese, then Lemon Merengue Pie with Ice Cream), then back to our cabin for a shower in readiness for happy hour in the Crow's Nest.
Ship departs at 5pm, & the commentary starts as ...
... what we have seen before. Quite friendly even to the foreign tourists who kept walking right into the area where you weren't aloud, the guards must have had pitty seeing them wearing the distinctive socks with sandals fashion. Afterwards we strolled through town, then down to the waterfront towards the Gardens. It was filled with funky bars and café with loud music just screaming for us to spend some money there, but we resisted and compromised with our packed ...
