We fully anticipated the visa nightmare of previous visits. But we had no issues, Russian immigration is lengthy, but ship staff stated there were over 30 immigration officers on board, so the process worked quite well. Everybody was off the ship by around midday, all tours left on time. In truth there isn't a lot to see. You can walk to the square from the tendering point, but there is nothing there! (Apart from a statue of Lennin) the town is apparently 30km long but only two roads wide, to see anything at all you definitely need a tour! More of a port to say 'I've been there' than things to do. Some shops accept US dollars, although apparently it's illegal to use them as currency, but not all! Don't rely on being able to buy anything anywhere.
The excursions were limited. Last minute changes to disembark without an excursion. Te excursion did not allow us inter-mix with locals

Small town with not a lot to see. Clearly not geared for having cruise ships stop in.

We went to see the native indians and enjoyed having there raindeer soup etc. Other than that, nothing to see and it was cold, snow still on the ground

Interesting - it’s Russia. We were told you HAD to do an excursion but some people wandered around on their own!
