    Re: This is Honningsvåg / Nordkapp

    I have also been to Honningsvåg many times with Crystal Symphony, during my many years working on her:

      Think I had a better day for it - lots of painting and washing going on!! This was 2009.

      Great photos - as ever - Jan Olav. Crystal Symphony is a pretty boat isn't she.

        Dear Mark,

        Yes, it seems as if you had a MUCH better day light wise than what I had. When she came in that evening, it was already late and light was fading fast. I was planning on doing some night shots but had forgotten my tripod back at the camping site.

        Oh, yes, Crystal Symphony is one of the most beautiful modern cruise ships I would say. I started working on her during 1999 as a Safety Officer, but was soon promoted to be her Chief Officer (later Chief of Security and Safety). I left her at the end of summer 2005, and it was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do when it comes to work. But the time was there, and I had a shore side job in Bangkok waiting for me that I could not say no to.

          Can quite understand why you'd be sad to leave Symphony. You're right though, time moves on, different challenges, different opportunities - but you're always left with the good memories. Thanks for sharing that with me.

          Re light - that's the thing with north Norway though isn't it - sometimes the light is astonishing, sometimes there just isn't any - or worse still everything is the colour of milk. Wonderful place though!

              A little more ahead and they could have stepped directly from the bow to the pub....

                This one is also on Jan-Olav's new Crystal Serenity thread.

                Small boats and or very big PoloUK?

                    Being a bear of very little brain (like Pooh) - it never occurred to me that the self-timer photo would have this effect. I haven't a clue what I thought it would look like, but it wasn't this!! Ah well, you live and learn.

                      Re: This is Honningsvåg / Nordkapp

                      Summer time is painting time in Honningsvåg - everything that's yellow gets yellower.



                      That usually includes tourists who lean before they read, and the two girls that busily take on the job.

                      They occassionally have to have a break for other activities, as below. No-one else around to catch the rope. Incidentally KS Norge is on the other end of that bit of string!!!



                      Have had some fantastic days in H'våg, but this was June 2011 - with Oriana, Lofoten and Norge on the berth in full sun, hard to imagine anything more idyllic.
                      Cheers,

                        That's a picture that really gets better when one knows the story behind it.

                            Another ship picture this time - 2011 - Vistamar parked amongst the shops.

                            From some angles Narvesen (the newsagents) actually looks more seaworthy!!!

                              Amadea and Albatros on the berth, late June 2009, the glorious evening sun reflecting on the fjord.

                              This is the view from Nordkappveien - since then the new Kai Nord has been constructed, giving somewhere for the very big ships to moor (as per the Oriana photos in the 'Cruise Ships in Norway 2011' thread.
