If you are looking for luxury cruise, then Svalbard may not be the best option for you. Most expedition ships are pretty basic compared to Caribbean cruises but if you are looking for a little more comfort then a larger ship is the way to go. There are generally more cabin categories available; and suites often give you a living room as well as a bedroom as part of you cabin. The smaller vessels are even more basic and twin cabins bunk bed style beds. It is common to have facilities such as a sauna or even a gym on board the larger vessels. There is also a lot more ‘private’ space if you want to get away from your fellow passengers like pop to the library for some quiet time. It’s not quite as easy on a 12 man ship!
