These early departures will operate for approximately the first hour and a half after your ship disembarks (based on number of guests present). After this time, guests will need to wait at either stop number 14 (Frihamnen), which is about a 3-5 minute walk from your ship, with stops scheduled every 10 – 20 minutes from 10:45. Guests could also make their way to one of the other stops (at their own expense) for regularly scheduled services that begin from 10:00am.
