Spitsbergen Cruise Photos

From: MS Nordstjernen cruise review


Magdalenefjord and Gravneset

A dozen or more hardy passengers and guides tried an Arctic swim in the Magdalenefjord. (Nobody had a thermometer handy, but the estimated water temperature was 2 C, or about 36 F.)

One plucky grey-haired lady from Minnesota went skinnydipping. When she was immersed to her shoulders, she had a picture taken for her grandchildren. She wanted to show the kids that "their grandmother wasn't an old fuddy-duddy, but somebody cool like Auntie Mame."
