The Viking Homeland cruise started in Stockholm. I visited the city several years ago and loved the architecture and feel of it. Because of the jet lag and having already seen most of the tourist sites, I ended up not doing much in Stockholm. Memories of the amazing Swedish meatballs from my prior trip drove us to have dinner at Kvarnen (and the fact that it was a 15 minute walk from the ship) and again it was delicious. The sail away gave us a perspective of Stockholm and Sweden that I did not see before. The city is an archipelago and we passed many small islands and interesting structures as the ship headed to Finland.
