  1. I agree that one will see more on foot then from a bus window. Getting around can be done by public transport.
  2. Abba museum and Vasa museum should be done together since they are in close proximity of each other. Their locations are only a few 100 m apart so doing one and comeback later in the day would be a bit waste of time. IMO.
  3. There is a ferry line between Tallink and Stockholm (Tallink Silja) so that part is doable. The same goes for Stockholm - Scania museum.
  4. Taxi would obviously be the most convenient way. Recommended companies: Taxi Kurir, Taxi Stockholm and Sverigetaxi (formerly known as Taxi020). There is also a private car service called Frey's hyrverk which are quite fancy and even used by the Royal Court. You can also use the airport express train to the central station and then use a cab from there.
  5. It will, especially since it's an overnight call. Solitice class is just short of 320m long which is just below the size limit of ships able to enter Stockholm. Regal/Royal Princess and NCL Breakway/Getaway are right on the limit and both can and will sail into Stockholm but usually berths in Nynäshamn.
  6. Also what ship are you planning on going with? I would advise against anything larger then the Soltice class since that likely would mean ending up Nynäshamn instead of Stockholm. This would make you miss out on the journey through the archipelago (about 5 hours each way) and as well as over 2x1,5 our of extra travel time by bus, train or by tour organizer minibus.
  7. I'd say that public transport in Stockholm have a higher level of accessibility then the HoHO buses/boats.
  8. Yes totally doable. Your ship will be at Frihamnen F638 berth. Bus 76 from Frihamnen to Djurgårdsbron. Switch to tram 7 towards Djurgården Waldemarsudde. The the journey takes about 15-20 minutes.
  9. There is an app for public transport in Stockholm as well but it has very poor reviews about various malfunctions.
  10. In Stockholm you can't pay onboard the buses so you will have to buy tickets/travel card before you get on the buses. Your mastercard will be sufficient since we mostly use card or mobile payment anyway.
  11. It's a small town north west of Stockholm. It is a nice little town which is said to be the oldest town in Sweden but if this is your first time in Stockholm I think you should stick to central Stockholm. https://www.tripadvisor.se/Attractions-g315923-Activities-Sigtuna_Sigtuna_Municipality.html
  12. Try Finnish salt licorice if you are into licorice.
  13. Just be aware that the City Hall only can be visited independently (from organised tour groups) by going to the city hall and book you onto on of the official guided tours they have. So once your into Stockholm you have to get there to book a tour. With that I mind it might be easier to skip the City Hall? In your case I'd say the shuttle bus would the #1 option, commuter train #2 and HoHo #3. 1. Shuttle bus : Before you leave the port, buy a 24 hour travelcard . It will make things easier. https://www.google.com/maps/dir/59.3295875,18.0688823/Nordiska+Museet%2FVasamuseet/@59.3288513,18.0737417,16z/data=!4m13!4m12!1m0!1m5!1m1!1s0x465f9d5370990379:0x2c9c68631fe28fcd!2m2!1d18.0954904!2d59.329367!2m3!6e0!7e2!8j1553500800!3e3 Walk 400-500m through Kungsträdgården to the top of the park and go with tram 7 to Nordiska museet. Short walk from there to Vasa. https://www.google.com/maps/dir/59.3294043,18.094902/Vasamuseet/@59.3288832,18.0930266,17.5z/data=!4m9!4m8!1m0!1m5!1m1!1s0x465f9d546d8329af:0xcff09af1b4c13241!2m2!1d18.0913964!2d59.3280233!3e2 harbour ferry from the end point. https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Vasamuseet/Allmänna+gränd/@59.322608,18.0945193,945m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x465f9d546d8329af:0xcff09af1b4c13241!2m2!1d18.0913964!2d59.3280233!1m5!1m1!1s0x465f9d5547c2528b:0x30c914a4f5a65e1d!2m2!1d18.094564!2d59.3240724!3e3 https://www.google.com/maps/@59.3227352,18.0748354,241m/data=!3m1!1e3 make your way through Old town to the Royal Palace. The shuttle bus pick up point is just north of the Royal Palace. 1. Train (walk or shuttle from ship) Before you leave the port, buy a 24 hour travelcard . It will make things easier. From Stockholm central station to Vasa.. You will arrive at Stockholm City station but exit via Central station since City station is deep under ground. https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Stockholms+Centralstation/Nordiska+Museet%2FVasamuseet/@59.3340411,18.0685061,15.25z/am=t/data=!4m18!4m17!1m5!1m1!1s0x465f9d60f602f26d:0x97c553dab672ba3d!2m2!1d18.0579323!2d59.3306685!1m5!1m1!1s0x465f9d5370990379:0x2c9c68631fe28fcd!2m2!1d18.0954904!2d59.329367!2m3!6e0!7e2!8j1553500800!3e3 Then the same was Shuttle bus except you have to walk back to the railway station or use bus #2 this route: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Slottskajen,+111+30+Stockholm/Centralen/@59.3279215,18.0646941,16.75z/data=!4m19!4m18!1m10!1m1!1s0x465f9d58f0d51c9b:0xeed79a89224f260a!2m2!1d18.0724605!2d59.3279393!3m4!1m2!1d18.0636932!2d59.3276775!3s0x465f9d5f7ad5ac8b:0xa991e73560a93731!1m5!1m1!1s0x465f9d5fd41ea9a3:0x947f8c30d0eb3289!2m2!1d18.0599987!2d59.3301213!3e2 3. HoHo buses seems to be a bit unreliable according to some (doesn't leave until bus is full) posters. It doesn't go between the things you want to see in a linear order but a detour around town as well as up to Frihamen in a worst case scenario. You could combine it with the HoHo boats though.
  14. AFAIK there is only one dedicated Viking museum in Stockholm (Vikingaliv), not sure what museum the other one is. Possible it could be Historiska museet. " bus around parts of Stockholm " could be anything and by being on a bus you would only see half of it anyway. Anyway I agree with GradUT, do a little research and DIY. It's quite easy actually.
