Stockholm and Helsinki are two of the most beautiful European capitals and visiting both of them is a unique experience full of majestic scenery, adventurous trips, remarkable attractions and romantic landscapes. What will make your journey even better, is if you take a cruise between the capital cities of Sweden and Finland and marvel at the beauty of the Nordic region, including the Scandinavian archipelago and the stunning numerous small islands.
But this is not all that you’ll get from the cruise ships. Except for the views, you can expect excellent service, neat accommodation, great entertainment, amazing food and lots of booze! If you’re wondering why the booze is taking a central part of the trip, you need to know few things.
Due to the high prices and strict government controls on alcohol sales in Sweden, cruises are one of the best ways to party and drink, as they sail in international waters and sell duty-free items. Locals often go on cruises to take advantage of the many tax-free shops onboard and shop not only for alcohol but other duty-free items as well.
If you are a traveler or staying in Sweden for your vacation, taking a cruise ship is also a bargain, given the high prices of food and accommodation in both cities. You also get the chance to explore more of the region and if you’re lucky you may meet new Swedish friends on your journey.
So, these are few more reasons to add Helsinki and Stockholm to your list of must-see destinations. Let’s go on a booze cruise!
