Spitsbergen Cruise Photos

From: MS Nordstjernen cruise review



The exterior of the Barentsburg Mine Hospital was in even worse repair during our visit, with broken windows and other signs of deferred maintenance.

Still, appearances aren't everything, and the hospital has a long history of treating mining injuries and other emergencies. (In serious cases, patients can be flown by helicopter to Longyearbyen for evacuation by air ambulance to Tromsø.)
