Not having visited a nuclear powered ship before, this was very interesting. Considering it's age it was even more impressive, both regarding the size and the standard on board.

The icebreaker in itself and the role it played was interesting to us. Our English speaking Vladimir provided us with details to make the visit enjoyable.
