Cruising the fjords to Svalbard

a trip by Glyn Wade
From: July 15th 2019
Until: July 31st 2019

On our first ever proper cruise Claire and I will be staying in the same room (cabin) for the whole of our holiday rather than lugging our gear from hotel to motel to tent. People are worried we'll get bored while I'm kmore worried about what to wear!
Our goal is Svalbard and Pyramiden but there are other stops on the trip so don't think this will just be a case of 'got up, ate breakfast, had a nap etc...'
Wi-fi is extortionate on board so posts will be infrequent. But worth it of course.
