Stockholm from the water.
Wayne_B, Aug 2022
Trip was interesting and thorough. Great vistas. Ship was a bit crowded early on , but quite a few dis-embarked in Vaxholm, creating more space.

The boat was very crowded. Even though we were 30 mins early, we were unable to get a seat outside. Our views were limited and it was very hot inside the boat.

It was ok for a boat ride -> not very informative
lmulloy, Aug 2022
There was no one at the departure point in advance.It was hard to hear the announcer -> the brochure could have had some more pictures of the things we were supposed to be seeing. I never new about a lunch option?🤷🏻‍♀️ It was a relaxing cruise / but I did not learn a lot about the city -> I was disappointed in the content -> looking at fancy houses can be done anywhere … I would rather have had more history of Stockholm.
Too crowded
Graeme_S, Jul 2022
A bit overcrowded to the extent there were no seats available on top outer deck. Inside was not ideal to view the archipelago. We ended up taking a foLd up chair and sitting on front deck after take off - but this became crowded and people pushed in front to block our view. The commentary was hard to hear up front so it became a boat trip on the water. We ended up sitting inside on way back. Not high on my recommendation list unless they were to limit numbers

H_B, Jul 2022
Great scenery but but the commentary by the guide was skewed greatly to those sitting on the right side of the boat probably 75 to 25 discuss this with her but she said that’s the way it is so if you’re going to take it sit on the right side
Worth it!
Ashley_W, Sep 2022
Great boat trip. We had a lovely lunch in the restaurant…food was excellent, and we could still see everything we wanted.
Pretty, but only minimal narration
Denise_D, Aug 2022
I was a bit disappointed in this cruise. It was pleasant enough, and the archipelago is lovely to see. However, the narration was so sparse that I felt like I learned almost nothing about what I was seeing. It was a 3-hour trip, with plenty of time for both narration and silence. Instead we had short descriptions and long periods of nothing.
Sailing the Stockholm outbound.
Holger_E, Jul 2022
Good guidning and a Nice boatride. We saw many beautiful houses and a exciting history was told. Have never thought of so many small islands.
Nice and relaxing tour
Pablo_E, Jul 2022
The ship was comfortable enough and the staff was nice too, but the islands views and the environment were wonderful

Good trip
William_J, Jul 2022
An enjoyable cruise around the archipelago. Very leisurely with informative info from the guide. The three hours passed very quickly.
Pleasant day trip, great for seeing the Stockholm archipelago
Gabrielle_G, Sep 2022
Pleasant little boat cruise around Stockholm harbour. Very informative guide, and the staff were polite and friendly. Only thing holding it back from 5 stars is there was only one washroom for such a large vessel.
Let’s go for a quick trip to explore Stockholm archipelag!
Elissabeth_G, Aug 2022
Great weather, great cruise ,great places, full of old story’s which meets new modern places with unexpected splash from the waves!!! Nice memories in my life’s backpack!
Zero marks for zero commentary
David_M, Jul 2022
The promised guide commentary was absent from the outdoor deck, which meant this was a very expensive boat trip and no more. While being outside was pleasant, there was zero information, zero insight into what we were going past, and zero value in paying for the trip. We were halfway down the queue to board - by the time we got on, all the inside seats (with that all important commentary!) we’re taken. Nor, despite the loudspeaker on deck, was there any indication that we and the hordes of people on deck were going to be stiffed out of our money by the absence of commentary. We complained to a staff member on the way off, who agreed it was awful, but that this was an ongoing problem. At the very least, we should have been offered a partial refund. Avoid like the plague.
Beautiful scenery....

Beautiful scenery. Excellent value. Very good time parameters. Wonderful guide. Pleasant voice and very informative
Do not recommend- too long, no hospitality
amberkindberg, Jul 2022
I would not recommend this cruise. It takes 1.5 hours just to get to Vaxholm where some of the people get off the boat and others get on. There isn’t much to see other than the homes and apartments along the water way. I was expecting much more navigating through the different areas… once we stopped at Vaxholm, they turned around and weren’t the same way back for another 1.5 hours. The boat was over sold and over crowded. There wasn’t a place to sit. We finally grabbed a foldable chair and sat- freezing outside the front. The worst part was how extremely rude the barista/ snacks person was. We bought snacks, coffee, hot chocolate at various times throughout the 3 hour journey. She wouldn’t answer questions or made rude comments or just completely ignored us altogether. She shouldn’t be in this job if she’s so miserable. The whole experience was extremely disappointing. Cold, rude, overcrowded, way too long. Don’t do it.
Could be so much better
Karen_L, Jul 2022
An interesting commentary for the tour. However - long queue to board which they didn’t start boarding until 5 mins from departure despite instruction to be there no more than 15 mins from departure. Large part of indoor viewing only accessible if you booked into restaurant for full meal on board….not explained before hand. Food from snack bar available downstairs with no view really and very limited selection. A lot of very unruly children on lower deck with no parents insight.

A little disappointing
Katharine_P, Jul 2022
I was a bit disappointed with this trip. There is no mention that I could see that said seating outside was very limited. There was a guide however the commentary was not broadcast inside the vessel so unable to hear it properly. The only way I could have heard the commentary was to stand outside for the duration. Unfortunately I am unable to stand for such length of time.
do not book this tour
Gabrielle_E, Jul 2022
this tour was not as advertised. very uncomfortable, little space to sit (we had to carry chairs outside and sit on a crammed deck), the guide was difficult to understand, and it was not worth the $$$. would not ever go again, sadly!
A wonderful day, with Stockholm Archipelago Cruise
IOANNIS_N, Sep 2022
It was really wonderful and stunning. The sights during the cruse was awesome. We really enjoyed our Archipelago cruse so much.

Recommended - lovely scenery en route
Dipshikha_B, Jul 2022
Beautiful scenery, well worth the trip with a nice long time around the islands.Got amazing pics . There was narration from the guide throughout. I had a wonderful time, my only feedback would be that additional space for sitting or standing outside on the shipwould be great.
