LONGYEARBYEN, Swalbard Islands
This is the main Cruise Port in the Swalbard Islands in the Arctic. The port is located in the heart of this tiny town on the island of Spitzbergen which is also the biggest of all the islands. The cruise ships usually docks in the heart of the town of about 2400 people.
