Would you fancy a boat tour in the Stockholm archipelago with your partner, family or friends? On top of the typical tourist boat tours, you can now get to know Stockholm thanks to cruises with dinner and music on board.
These below are two of the possibilities available during the summer months in Stockholm.
1. Cruise with a Solo Musician on Board
From mid May, from May 14 to September 12, 2019, the M/S Victoria ship will set sail from Nybroviken pier 10 in Stockholm on certain days (see calendar) to embark on a three-hour cruise with a solo musician on board and dinner buffet included.
The Swedish Dinner Buffet
On board the M / S Victoria a buffet is served with typical seasonal Swedish dishes based on fish and meat and with vegetarian alternatives as is typical of restaurants in Sweden. After dinner you can order coffee and desserts.
The buffet includes prawns with aioli, ribs, trout, coleslaw, baked corn, the typical crayfish with dill, roasted potatoes and up to a total of 18 dishes to try.
Live Music and Spectacular Views
During the evening, while enjoying dusk in Stockholm navigating through the sparkling waters of the Baltic, a musician is in charge of delighting passengers with classic Swedish and international songs and melodies. Before the return there is a short stop on an island of the archipelago to take a walk and breathe the pure air of these latitudes and probably enjoy the last sunrays for that day.
Schedule and Price
The cruise departs from the Stockholm pier at 7:00 p.m. and returns at 10 p.m. The price, which personally seems very reasonable, includes the cruise and the buffet and is 495 SEK (46€ / $51.50 / £40.60). Beverage, alcoholic drinks, coffee and desserts are paid separately. You can check availability and book here.
If you are interested, make your reservation soon because in August there are only four dates available.
2. ‘Schlager’-songs Cruise
If you are a Eurovision fan, you will probably know that in Sweden it is lived to the fullest, this can be your three-hour cruise with dinner and DJ to get to know Stockholm and make friends dancing to the rhythm of catchy songs and great hits or schlager of all the times.
Buffet On Board
The night starts at M / S Victoria with a buffet based on Swedish products with fish, meat and vegetarian dishes with the same composition as described above
An Evening of Music and Dancing
Thanks to the DJ on board, music is present throughout the trip from minute one. Once the dessert is served, the volume is raised and the party begins. You can ask for your favorite songs, sing them in chorus or spontaneously dance between the tables and on the dance floor. The bar will be open throughout the night.
Schedule and Price
Some Fridays and Saturdays (see calendar) from May 17 and until October 4, 2019 with departure at 7:00 p.m. from Nybroviken pier nr. 10 and arrival at 10:00 p.m. Price is 525 SEK (49€ / $54.50 / £43.25) with buffet and cruise included. Beverage, alcoholic drinks, coffee and desserts are paid separately. Check availability and book here .
For the Schlager Cruise in Stockholm there are only two days available in August (more in June) but it is a good alternative for those who come to Stockholm in September because the cruise also sails the four Fridays of September.
And if you can not do any of these cruise because of your arrival dates check out also the gastronomic cruises or the Christmas cruises if you happen to visit in December.
