Cruise stop: Gothenburg

We will be In Gothenburg on Saturday, May25, 2013 (11:00-18:00). We will be on RCCL Brillance of the seas. Do you know where the sip will dock and if is reasonable to walk to the town center? What are the essential things we should plan to see and do?

Thanks for any help, suggestions, or tips you can offer.

Can't comment on where they dock because there are many options in the city.

I recommend you to go on www.goteborg.com for most reliable and up to date guide.

We really enjoyed the Gothenberg City Museum. It has the remnants of a Viking ship. We also really enjoyed our visit to Stora Salluhallen, the big indoor food market. Nice place for a quick, inexpensive lunch.

Thanks for the suggestions. Both sound like great ideas. We're you able to walk to each? From the pier? Were they easy to find?

Hi - We were at a hotel so we took the tram there. Both of these locations are centrally located in the city. The tram system in Gothenberg is easy to use. I think there are a couple different areas for the cruise ships to dock, so I would call Royal Caribbean and find out which one your ship will be using and whether they provide transportation into the city.

Port cruise call calendar says the Brilliance will be docked at Arendal Pier 751. Following is Cruise Critic note: OUTER HARBOUR: ARENDAL QUAY 751

Passenger facilities: This quay has a marquee with welcome service and souvenir shop that will stay open during the ship’s call. Shuttleservice into the city centre (10 km, approx. 20 min by bus).

We will be there too.
