      • Thank you for that wonderful Harald Jarl compilation. I like also the Vesteralen moment in Torvik. You will hardly see this picture as a passenger. Who is waiting for Hurtigruten in Torvik, if you don't live there?

          Thank you for your comment. No, there are not many passengers in Torvik. And most of the cargo from Ulsteinvik and Fosnavåg is now shipped by car. Somewhere I have read that Hurtigruten are thinking of dropping to call in Torvik altogether, but I don't know from when.

              That picture is all about colors!

              Great Hurtigruten-retro-pictures by the way.

            Rolling on:

            On this forum, we have talked a lot about the rolling of the Harald Jarl/Lofoten class. These pictures can confirm to that:



            Coming in from Hustadvika at Bud, there are some heavy swells from the open Norwegian Sea.



            I was standing on the top deck of Polarlys when we met Lofoten. The wind was nothing, but the waves where obviously there (even if I couldn’t see them), because Lofoten was rolling like a duck. I guess that her passengers were pretty scared. It took a few minutes, and then she was in calmer waters.


            (Nikon digital photo, April 2004)

            Now, imagine Harald Jarl in the open sea of the Drake Passage. In another thread we have heard that she rolled up to 42 degrees, and the average listing during the passage was 25 degrees. That couldn’t have been pleasant.

              Wow, it must be pretty challenging for the people on board Lofoten to cope that.

              This happens when there are criss-cross-waves, they are looking completey harmless, but your ship is rolling heavily.
              Changing course may help but must not. I experienced that also on Lofoten, very nice, if it is not during the night.
              Impressing pictures. Thank you for posting.

              On a "normal" ship in open sea you can change heading (or spreed) to reduce roll motions, but on a thigh schedule and short stretches of exposed waters that option is not available to you. a bit of fixed ballast could reduce the roll angle but increase the the roll frequency. (Not much better for the pax)
              (The wave length/frequency is the main problem, not wave height)

            Rolling on (II):

            And then, in calmer waters, but still rolling with very much movement in the water.

                  Raftsundet a summer night; seen from the bridge of Polarlys. The Captains watch. Capt. Ernstsen to the left. The sun foils are down, so that they will not be blinded by the midnight sun!

                    • Very moodful pictures. Being a captain at Hurtigruten is a privileague, especially on such a day it is one of the most beautiful working places of the world.

                        Once, when I was in Copenhagen, Le Grand Bleu was docked at Larsens Plads, where the DFDS Danskebåten earlier had their berth. She was by then one of the largest private yachts with 113 meter (actually, that isn’t so very big by today), built by Bremer Vulcan in 2000. She sports a sailboat, a speedboat and a helicopter on board.

                        • I have seen this one in in Aalesund and in Singapore earlier. May even have posted pictures here on CVF(???)

                          Looking at all the "extras" it reminds me of the old saying; "bringing the kitchen sink", when somebody over pack for a trip.
