“Nature at its best”
Review of Magdalena Bay

Reviewed 4 August 2013

A cruise on the Saga Sapphire to the Midnight Sun was something beyond my wildest dreams. In spite of a delay due to an engine problem the cruise was absolutely unbelievable. Captain Stephen Angove and his crew made sure that the delay did not spoil our enjoyment. Extra free excursions were arranged at short notice. Longyearbyen, the capital of Spitsbergen some 600 miles from the North Pole with its glaciers and snow capped mountains was a delight to see and the air so clean and fresh was wonderfully strange to us city dwellers. Ny Alesund also was surrounded by stunning views. Now an international research centre, a gift shop and Post Office.The Polar bears did not appear but the Reindeer gave us the once over, Also one or two Arctic Foxes were seen in the distance. Due to our unscheduled extended stop at Molde we only had time to visit Bergen on the way back to Dover.
When we arrived home there was another welcome surprise a Generous compensation for the delay we had experienced. We have already booked our next cruise with SAGA.

Magdalenefjorden is one of the best known fjords on Spitsbergen – it is an amazing fjord with jagged mountains. The fjord look faboulous with peaked mountains and some mysterious fog. A must to see if you visit Svalbard!
