What I LIKE Nynashamn, Sweden 2014 2

  • 7:30 – wake up
  • No hurry
  • 10:15 – take tender ashore
  • – nobody in line – only takes 15 mins
  • Decided not to take 1 hr bus ride to Stockholm @ $59 ea
  • (don’t need to see another big city)
  • Will enjoy small seaside resort town
  • Take laptops for fast, free wifi
  • 10:45 – decide to not take local hop on, hop off bus @ $18 ea
  • – town just not big enough to justify cost
  • Take nice walk to harbor – 30 mins
  • (they have blue line painted on sidewalk so you can’t get lost)
  • – filled w/small shops & restaurants
  • – TI (Tourist Info) has free wifi but no place to sit

What I DON’T LIKE

  • Can’t get wifi @ Subway – takes 10 mins
  • *2:55 – Princess in harbor not @ pier!
  • – feel panic attack coming on!
  • – not supposed to leave until after 5:30
  • Crooner’s is only place to get a martini
  • – Wheelhouse bar shorter pour & no olive tray
  • Forgot my notepad

FUN-facts – I re-checked the Princess website in March and found the “3 for Free” promo rate. I got a lower cabin rate as well as a $50 shore excursion credit, $175 cabin credit and one meal in the premier dining room.

More FF – There are 296 kitchen staff members on board the ship.
Not so FF – Apparently everyone who got the promo dinner was signed up for tonight and the staff is overwhelmed.
