This is a great town to walk around and get a small tour. They also have some good restaurants that are very reasonable in price.

We took Ubers from the cruise terminal to Gdansk, which cost between 15-25 euros each way. It's a small city so easy to walk around in the timeframe, and very picturesque.

Went to Gdansk, about a 45 minute car ride away. We were lucky to meet people on the shop that had data plans, so we took Uber from the port to Gdansk. I recommend Rick Steve's Scandinavian & Northern European Cruise Ports book, we used it to do a walking tour in Gdansk. We planned to take train back to Gdynia, ended up on a train going the wrong direction, so ultimately took Uber back. If taking the train, be sure to ask if it is the right one! Read Less

The bus from the ship took us to town and we walked around on our own. The weather was rainy.

There was a race in town that day so it was very difficult to get around, but there was sure a lot of action.

I wasn't expecting Gdansk to be so picturesque! It was one of the ports that was on the itinerary that I did not really want to visit. I'm very happy we did. The buildings and architecture was incredible. I loved looking at all the local made items at the carts along the waterside. Try the local food. Read Less

Took the included walking tour and bought some amber and Polish pottery at reasonable prices. Gdansk means shipyard to me, but it has a beautiful old town.

Beautiful old town! Possibly my favorite; excellent shopping and dining. The only downside is the travel time from the port. I wish the cruise spent longer in port and skipped the next port (Klaipeda)

Wonderful tour of this Teutonic Knights HQ castle, the largest brick castle in the world. Very interesting history, architecture and reconstruction history.

We didn't stop in Gdansk, and Viking's explanation about why, didn't pass the smell test. Our ship was sitting still outside the port waiting, and 2 other cruise ships passed us and went into port. Our captain came on the public address system and told us that the ship had been held up by wind and rough water, and there was too much cargo traffic coming out of the Gdansk harbour, and so we wouldn't be able to go in through the narrow channel. Well...how did those other, larger ships do it? Something fishy there... Read Less

We got off the ship and were met by several cab drivers willing to negotiate a price. They will give you a decent local map, mark sites for you, give you sight seeing tips and arrange pickup time for transport back to the boat. They don't usually take any money until they return you to the boat. Tip- stop at an ATM of money changer to get cash. Also as an FYI- public restrooms (not in a restaurant, although in, say a McDonalds or other fast food place they may charge) usually charge a fee, in Gdansk they did take euro, lucky for me. This was the first time a ship this size put into Gdansk, so we were met by lots of locals watching as we pulled in. Leaving their were even more locals coming to the dock to watch us leave and wave. It was nice to be received so warmly. Read Less
