Stockholm trip

Written by Schö & Wallace

This week we decided to take part in a short trip to Stockholm, the capital of Sweden.

We took the ferry Mariella (Viking Line). The ship set of to sea at 5:30 pm from Helsinki. We had a small cabin together with a German and a French guy. As we had to stay on the ship for approximately 12 h, we first decided to discover the big boat. And there was everything you could imagine: casino, night club, cafe, restaurant, swimming pool, duty free shop, congress center and….. try to imagine… four saunas (ok, it’s not so funny anymore). The whole trip, 12h ship - 8h Stockholm - 12h ship + breakfast was awful cheap: 25 €!

At the beginning of our trip they made a karaoke night in the nightclub “Club 7” on the boat. Crazy Finns and of course some Erasmus students were singing Finnish songs. It seems that the Finns like karaoke even more than the Japanese. Then the DJ of the club started his work and we were drunken enough to enjoy it.

We arrived next day in Stockholm at about 9:40 am. We were brave enough to get up. Stockholm has a very beautiful old city centre with many small streets (a little bit like Venice). We visited the famous Vasa museum . In this museum you can have a look at one of the biggest ships built in the 16th century: the Vasa.

  • At last: a new entry! :)
    Seems like you had a lot of fun but unlike us you didn't spend some nights in Stockholm. I guess there weren't so many teenies on the boat like there were when we went ;)
    By the way: Why am I writing this in English, noone except for me is reading your blog anyways?

  • After reading the name of the ship, I thought the ship would look like a a real viking ship . That would be a real adventeure... You guys seem to have had a lot of fun anyway.
