                      Ombugge, is it allowed to sail without the escape tender?

                        Normally it is not, but it depends on WHY the freefall lifeboat (in this case) is missing.
                        If it somehow got lost or damaged during passage it would obviously be allowed to proceed to safe port for a replacement (or repairs)
                        It is also possible to get a dispensation from carrying lifeboat(s) if it is impractical to fit one. (In this case there are obviously a launch and recovery device fitted though)
                        If no lifeboat(s) are carried it is substituted with life rafts per SOLAS requirements and with Flag state approval.
                        This CAN be a temporary arrangement due to necessary repairs to the freefall lifeboat. (But I don't see any additional life raft?)

                          there are some rafts.
                          in the red circle,i presume each side

                          the green circle ,a dinghy

                          and a ''mob'' in the purple circle



                          but the empty launch device aroused my interest .
                          you see the freefal lifeboat on every vessel these days while the davids type lifeboat is vanished

                            The life raft in the red circle is required regardless. I see no ADDITIONAL rafts to replace the lifeboat.
                            MOB-boat and dinghy does not count.

                            I would think that everything would float is a plus .
                            Though not much protection on a wild sea in a mob boat and a dinghy

                            Yes if you are floating in the water without anything to keep you afloat, anything that floats that you can hang onto would be a blessing, but it doesn't make it legal replacement for life saving appliances and definitely not for a lifeboat.

                          The new ship "Kronprins Haakon" is a Norwegian icebreaking polar research vessel jointly owned by the University of Tromsø (50 %), Norwegian Polar Institute (30 %) and Norwegian Institute of Marine Research (20 %). She was built at Fincantieri shipyard in Genova, Italy, and delivered in 2018.

                          She will be in Tromsø for some days,before they set course up to Svalbard to test the ship in the ice.

                                You can see a life raft in the same position here, although the freefall lifeboat is in place.
