Cruises from Longyearbyen
Hurtigruten offers Spitsbergen adventure cruises during the sumer months. During the voyage, you'll see glaciers and arctic wildlife, visit the settlements of Barentsburg and Ny Ňlesund, and make shore landings in places that big cruise ships can't reach.
See our archived MS Nordstjernen cruise review, which includes a 114-page day-by-day photo diary.

Other cruising opportunities
In a typical year, several dozen cruise ships, expedition ships, and icebreakers call at Longyearbyen during the navigation season. (I took this photo of a Cunard cruise liner when it was anchored off Longyearbyen.)
