Ny-Alesund port information

Ny-Âlesund is an international research station under Norwegian jurisdiction that includes fifteen permanent research stations from ten countries.   It has a small dock which can take small cruise liners if berths are not in use, or ships can wait in the bay (they do not anchor as the environment is sensitive) and tender to the jetty.

Ny-Âlesund isn't really a port in the true sense, but the dock for the International Research Station operated by the Norwegian Polar Institute.   One would imagine that outsiders are not welcome, but here is what the managing director said about this when asked.
