Embarking on Port Adventures in Warnemünde/Berlin, Germany

Embarking on Port Adventures in Warnemünde/Berlin, Germany


Here are our recommended port adventures for first-time visitors, based on the offerings of other cruise lines:

Low Budget: You don’t have to spend a dime to enjoy a beautiful day at this port. Simply explore Warnemünde on foot and relax at the beach! Public transportation offers an inexpensive option for sightseeing in Warnemünde and in nearby Rostock. Get the RostockCARD (see Getting Around for details), which includes several guided tours and admission to museums. Want to go to Berlin? The least expensive excursion is still pretty pricey—the “Berlin on your own” excursion simply takes you to the city and back by chartered train ($199/$99). Once there, head out on foot or take a hop on/hop off bus ($22/$7 ages 6-14, under 6, no charge).

Big Budget: Cruisers looking to get the most out of their time in Berlin are offered private tours of the city. You’ll still take a chartered train to Berlin, but once there, a private car with a tour guide awaits to take you where ever you want to go. Prices are around $1,750 for 2 people, $2,300 for 6 people. If money is no object, for $10,000 per person you might board a private plane to Krakow, Poland, from where you’ll be taken to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp memorial for an extensive tour.

Armchair: Take a 3-hour ride by chartered train to Berlin, where you’ll then be shown all the major sights aboard a tour bus. Note that this is a 13-hour excursion and simply too much for most little ones. Expect to pay $349 for adults/$199 for children. If an all-day affair seems too much, you can opt to visit nearby Rostock. An excursion including a tram ride, brief walking tour, and river cruise takes approximately 4 hours and will set you back $99/$49.

Cultural: You can combine your tour of Berlin with a side trip to either Potsdam and its stunning Palace of Sansoucci, or the former Sachsenhausen Nazi concentration camp. Prices are the same as for the all-day excursion to Berlin, but adding an extra destination will shorten your already brief time in Berlin. If you’re looking for something the whole family can enjoy, take the excursion to Bad Dobendan and chug along on the historic Molli steam train ($99/$49, 4½-hours). Alternatively, breathtaking Schwerin Palace, called “Neuschwanstein of the North,” has all the makings of a fairytale castle and is sure to be a hit with little princesses ($119/$79, 6 hours).
