Pictures of Visby Sweden on Our Oosterdam Cruise Ship Vacation

Visby Sweden - Our visit to Visby Sweden on one of our cruises with lots of pictures.

Cruise review of our HAL Oosterdam cruise ship vacation

Visby is a small Swedish town that doesn't have anywhere to dock a ship the size of the Oosterdam, so we had to weigh anchor and use tenders to go to and from the ship.  Life boats are used for the tenders.

 Oosterdam Cruise - Day 6 - Visby, Sweden

We didn't take a tour but just decided to wander around the town.  Visby is a very small place that was a medieval walled city with a Viking heritage. It is a very picturesque town.  There is a little train there that takes you sightseeing, but we were told that it wasn't running because it wasn't tourist season. 

Of course, we were amazed since there were about two thousand of us in town for the day.   We did a little shopping and after a couple of hours went back to the ship.  Not really much there for a cruse review. The tender ride was a real roller coaster.

Outdoor cafe. Outdoor cafes are all over the place.  We like to take a rest every so often in one and I usually order coffee while Kathy prefers sampling the local beer.
