Cruise line reviews of our vacation on the Oosterdam - Stockholm

Day 11 - Stockholm Sweden - Our Cruise Ship Vacation

The passage into Stockholm is too dangerous for the Oosterdam to navigate at night, so for about 4 hours early in the morning, we cruised the magnificent archipelago that lines the coast and leads into the city. The archipelago is quite beautiful as you can see from the first few photos below.

Stockholm is where the Nobel peace prize is awarded at city hall. It also has a museum called the Vasa Museum which is home to the sailing vessel Vasa.  This ship was commissioned 300 plus years ago by the King and was to be the grandest war ship of it time.  Unfortunately, it was badly engineered and sank on its maiden voyage.  It was discovered INTACT and brought to the surface 330 years later .. it is an amazing sight. Unfortunately it was too dark in the museum to get good pictures.

The other thing about Stockholm was that is was absolutely wall to wall people. I don't think I have ever seen so many people out and about on the streets and still there were traffic jams .. so who was it driving the cars ?????
