About Stockholm

Stockholm, Sweden's capital, is made up of 14 small islands, each distinct in character and mood; from the upmarket Östermalm and the bohemian Södermalm to the historic Gamla Stan. Stockholm is often referred to as the `Venice of the North', with its pretty islands and 52 connecting bridges. Stockholm is also considered to be the capital of Scandinavia, and is a popular tourist destination offering visitors beautiful landscape, stylish boutiques, stunning art galleries and much more.

Stockholm offers its visitors an array of exciting things to see and do. Museums include the Skansen open-air museum of Swedish life and culture, with historic buildings, working farms, a zoo and an aquarium. There is a vast number of walking tours and excursions to enjoy in Stockholm, and many important buildings to visit. The Royal Djurgarden park is an island consisting of beautiful parkland and forest, and the Old Town of Stockholm offers the Drottningholm Palace, which is the home of the Swedish Royal Family; and the remains of the Viking settlement, Birka. History lovers can take a guided city tour, which is offered in many different languages.

There is also plenty for younger visitors to do in Stockholm, from the Junibacken park, the wonderful world of master story-teller Astrid Lindgren, to attractions such as the Museum of Music, the Toy Museum and Skansen's Aquarium.

About Riga

Riga is the capital of Latvia and is the largest city in the Baltic. The city is located on both banks of the river Daugava, which seperates the city in to two sections; the Vecriga (Old Riga) and Pardaugava.

The port of Riga is an important part of the city's development and history, and was used for international trade between the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea as early as the 5th century. In the 12th century a small village, that is now Riga, was created on the river bank. The location provided a natural port and shelter for cargo and passenger shipping.

    unexpectedly enjoyable means of travel
    • The experience of walking to,and finding, the terminal, queueing and discovering that the berths were unisex and we'd be sleeping separately in bunks with strangers were unsettling. The signage at the port was poor. We found the terminal building in advance, but it was closed on the day no guidance, no personnel to help find the ship.The walk to the newer terminal was lengthy, unpleasant, and felt unsafe. However, the officers on board kindly transferred us to a double cabin. On return, the young woman at Riga check was equally helpful.The double cabins were cosy and comfortable. The cruise was a delight, sailing through the Swedish archipelago at sunset, views from sundeck. Romantika exceeded our expectations, plenty of opportunities for dining and relaxing. facilties for children and families great. When my husband left his electronic reader in the cabin,the young man at the Stockholm check in got it back

    Nice ferry from convenient ports in each city.
    • I booked online and printed off the confirmation email. I was in Stockholm and took the metro to Gardet. The walking sign posts to the terminal are superb. Check in was straight forward and I was given a boarding card to get on to the ferry and into the cabin. Boats to Riga and Helsinki leave around the same time so boarding process is a bit congested but doesn't take too long to get on board. The only problem was the cabin car wouldn't access the cabin and it took a few replacements to get it sorted. The cabin was a standard cabin, with no window but perfectly adequate and comfortable. I didn't have breakfast and it's an easy walk to Riga centre and old town

    Great trip
    • Great experience. The only thing is that we had to wait for check in for more than 30 minutes due to slow check in process. We couldnt use self check in as the code was not provided when buying through aferry. But overall it was great trip.

    beautifull cruise!
    • We would have liked more informations about public transports from the city center. It's a long walk from the underground station.
