Royal Caribbean Cruise port to Arlanda, Stockholm airport

We need early morning transportation from cruise ship to Arlanda airport in Stockholm .
We are on Seranade of the Seas. We arrive in port on June 25 and leave ship on June 26 to go home.
Is taxi our best way to get to airport ? How do we make arrangements ? Our flight leaves at 930am.

Taxi or bus from Frihamnen to Stockholm central station, then Arlanda Express to Arlanda.

Is it too expensive to just take a taxi the whole way?
I think it would be hard to transport luggage back and forth plus our plane leaves early in morning. I don't want to be late.

A taxi all the way is probably the best way as your flight is so early. Here is a taxi company you could contact and find out how much & prebook.

I assume you know that if you want to leave the ship that early in the AM you will have to schlepp your luggage on your own -- not wait for the staff to handle it.

Janis is correct but there's one up side: you'll probably be going DOWN instead of up.

Thanks. I went to the taxi website but I don't know the pickup address at the port so couldn't get an estimate of cost. Guess I will have to wait closer to departure in June and contact RCI. We are going to be on Seranade of the Seas.

If you are two it's crazy to take a taxi to the central station to catch the Arlanda Express, which is quite expensive. Even for one person with luggage I am not sure it is worth the trouble.

The cost to the airport should be fixed from Frihamnen. Don't even consider getting into a taxi without a fixed price, and don't even consider taking a taxi from one of many small companies. More often than not you'll have problems. But that's a problem for those arriving to Stockholm.

Taxi Stockholm is fine. From downtown Stockholm (and Frihamnen should counts as downtown) the price to Arlanda is 520 SEK. Call 08 - 15 00 00 and tell them you want a fixed price, and ask what the price will be. If boarding is at 9:00 am you should leave Frihamnen around 7:00 but that depends on whether you can skip lines, etc. You can call Taxi Stockholm a few days in advance. All drivers accept credit cards but tell them you'll be paying by credit card (if you are) just in case.

You do not need to contact RCCL. here is the link from their website. It is quite clear exactly where the Serenade will be docked:
