Fewer ships during summer season 2010

Fewer small cruise ships (so-called expedition ships) will visit Spitsbergen during the upcoming summer season of 2010. The reasons include the economical crisis, but also new safety requirements, especially new fire-fighting (sprinkler) systems that are very costly to install.

Several ships that have been cruising Spitsbergen’s coast extensively during recent years will not return again: Origo (25 passenger capacity), Grigoriy Mikheev (44), Alexey Maryshev (44), Professor Molchanov (54) and Professor Multanovskiy (54). The recent development is to replace these smaller ships with a lesser number of slightly larger, modern ones.

Will not come back: MV Professor Multanovskiy (here in Greenland).
