I got a chance to go in a cruise ship From Helsinki to Stockholm along with my friends in October 2011.
We had taken the Viking Line cruise named ‘Gabriella’ from Helsinki Port. It’s an overnight journey from Helsinki to Stockholm and vice-versa, We had booked our cabins/berth’s well in advance.
Follow this site for offers, timings, availability, booking and so on:
On board ‘Gabriella’, we can enjoy the scenery of the archipelago of the Baltic Sea, the variety of restaurants and bars, excellent duty-free shopping, and great music and entertainment. In that journey, we had spent two nights on board and one day ashore in Stockholm, before returning back to Helsinki.
Stockholm is a place with beautiful landscapes and its one of the well-planned cities with a lot of bridges around (I have read somewhere that there are more than 50 bridges).
It’s true that Stockholm is one of the more expensive cities to visit in Europe.The people are very nice, friendly and helpful.
It’s one of the largest cities in Scandinavia. You can still cover a lot of places by walking as many of Stockholm’s main sights are within walking distance from one another.
Most of the city’s historical charm is preserved. There is nature everywhere. There are lot of museums, parks historic streets and a lot of royal architecture.
Even though Swedish is the widely spoken language, we can still see a lot of English speaking people around.
A Hip-Hop bus tour will also be a convenient option to move around.The public transport charges are slightly on higher side.
People also consider Stockholm as the “Capital of Scandinavia”. You can visit Stockholm at any time of the year, but the best time is from summer to autumn.
I think 2-3 days will be a good itinerary, if you plan a Stockholm trip.

Walk through Gamla Stan
