Love this! Glad we took the activity although I hope there’s more time in Sweden. The onboard activities were fantastic. Point of concern only is the room / bed cleanliness. There were nuts under the bed cover!!

Great museum, you can listen audio tour guide from your phone in the meantime. They leveled story of the ship, and supported the exhibition with items from inside of the ship. I loved it.

An amazing day - more than we could have expected, we had such a great time as a couple on a private ice skating tour of one of the frozen lakes north of Stockholm. Highly recommended

They were very accomodating to change of bookings and providing all equipment. Thanks.
