The good news is that my suitcase has turned up overnight.
A full breakfast is included and we meet at 9 in the breakfast area. It really is an excellent spread. Afterwards we walk over to the Palace, through the old town, poking around souvenir shops, visit the Nobel Museum, then a shop that sells Swedish literature in many different languages. Have lunch in an outside but undercover restaurant. It’s a lovely sunny day.
After lunch we decide to book a dinner cruise; the first booking place sends us to a second place, which sends us to a third……....when we are referred to a fifth booking place we lose interest and make our way to the Modern Art Museum instead. We leave there at 6 pm and walk around the island in an anticlockwise direction, then back to the hotel, finally arriving there around 8. ps if you want to take a cruise, it seems the best place to book is the place from where the cruise leaves.
We have dinner in the hotel restaurant at 8:30 and the meal is excellent. We order three different desserts and share them. The food is different and the desserts could be described as exquisite. Dinner is 1300SEK, AUD238, before tip. Stockholm is very expensive.
