Yes, yes, yes. Just got to hope they are not dismantling everything around us.

We are on her last cruise as well, and looking forward to it as we have never been so far North before

We did Spitsbergen (a bit higher up) a few years ago and loved it. There is just a scientific research station there but I think Longyearbyen is more of a settlement and should have more of interest. I can remember getting off Arcadia with the brightest, bluest sky with the sun shining and I was wearing a coat but a local man was up on a roof in a T-shirt! I looked overdressed but within an hour the temperature plummeted and standing in the queue to get back on the tender, the wind just cut through you like a knife. I was glad of my coat with a hood but was surprised at how many others were inadequately dressed.

I absolutely loved that holiday and am so thrilled to get the chance to go that far north again. It is stunning. And watch out for the Arctic Terns and their lovely fluffy babies. Don't get too close like my husband did as he took a photo and he got dive-bombed by the adult bird. Maureen
