Sailing on a luxury cruise to Sweden gives you the chance to explore this beautiful Scandinavian country as you visit some of its top cultural attractions. Sweden has elegant cities full of historic architecture and world-class museums, but urban life isn’t all you’ll find here. Nature is never far away as you encounter serene lakes, forested islands, rolling farmland, and scenic hikes.
A Sweden cruise will take you right to the heart of the country in the capital, Stockholm. Spanning 14 islands and situated on the edge of a serene archipelago that stretches 50 miles across the Baltic Sea, Stockholm is known for its cozy café culture, medieval center, and cutting-edge architectural design. You'll also stop in Visby, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the best-preserved medieval city in Scandinavia. A Scandinavian cruise with Celebrity combines natural beauty, fascinating cities, and rich history all in one unforgettable trip.
Both Stockholm and Visby are home to some of the best-preserved medieval architecture in Scandinavia. Stroll the narrow cobblestone streets of Visby's Old Town to see its 13th-century city walls, ancient churches, and wooden-framed houses. In Stockholm, the enchanting Gamla Stan (the old town center) is a delight to explore on foot, its narrow alleys lined with old gabled houses. The venerable Storkyrkan Cathedral, too, dates back in part to the 14th century.
Sweden does museums exceptionally well. Popular visits in Stockholm include the Nordic Museum, the magnificent Vasa Ship Museum, the Moderna Museet, home to fine contemporary art, and ABBA The Museum, dedicated to the famous pop group. In Visby, don’t miss the Gotland Museum of cultural history.
Sweden’s royal family has a lineage going back centuries, and over those years, many ornate palaces and royal residences have been built in and around Stockholm. Don't miss a tour of Drottningholm Palace, dating back to the 17th century and the private residence of Sweden's King and Queen, or the opulent 18th-century Royal Palace in Gamla Stan, Stockholm's old town.
Sail across the Baltic Sea to the shores of Sweden on these luxury 12-night itineraries from Celebrity Cruises. Your cruise will depart from either Southampton, UK or Amsterdam in The Netherlands and sail to Visby and Stockholm. Itineraries include calls in other Scandinavian ports as well as further exciting destinations in northern Europe.
