There are many ships cruising and expeditioning around Svalbard, but our Akademik Servey Vavilov looks the coolest. It’s a Russian, ex-research ship, equiped to do hydro-acoustic tests and studies in the oceans. Now it has to listing for 10 days to the ooooohs and ahhhhhhs of a bunch of passengers. I am curious to know who will be on board and how the ship looks like inside and how it will navigate to the top of Svalbard. We will try to update this blog as much as possible, depending on the internet on board.
