Longyearbyen – the Ship’s arrived!

Only, it was the shipS and by the time we reached the docking area, it was a merry chaos. One big cruiser took up the whole landing site, so at least 3 smaller ones went about loading their passengers with Zodiacs – those black fast rubber boats you’ll get to see on some pictures. Because there are some simple rules to get safely on the boat, most passengers learned them on the fly and no one went swimming. After being directed to the cabin and indeed finding our luggage there, we were introduced to the Expedition Team in the cozy lounge. Later, one delicious dinner was left going cold as a beautiful Blue Whale turned up at the same time as the main course! After that excitement, the distribution of jackets and boots took place. We were happy to finally fall into our beds.
