  1. I noticed the ”hospital bed” in one of the cabins. Nothing has changed in over 100 years. Russian hospital beds are still primitive. You have to be tough to be Russian.

    • Nothing has changed? Perhaps you live in parallel dimension.

      A Russian Ice Breaker is no Carnival cruise ship. You have to tough to be in one.

    • The hospital on the icebreaker is needed for first aid, until a helicopter arrives or non-flying weather. If something serious, then the patient goes to the mainland – the icebreaker has a helipad.

      • Oh, I thought that they could do major surgery on the ship…such as open-heart operations. Thanks for the update.
        Yes, I live in a ”parallel dimension” ….call it reality.

        BTW, my comment above is not a criticism…its just an observation. Russian doctors are excellent.

        • …”I thought that they could do major surgery on the ship…such as open-heart operations…”. -LOL. In an IceBreaker vessel?

          Please tell us more about that “reality” of yours, where helicopters from “1916” carry patients to mainland hospitals. Go ahead.
