    Ombugge says:

    Here is the official list from Aalesund Port Authorities: http://www.alesund.havn.no/no/Skipst...iseanloep.aspx

    smp.no has a different list for some reason: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/article10669938.ece
    They have noticed that there will be fewer ships visiting, but why the difference between their list and the official one??

    They have also noticed that Disney Cruises will make their first appearance on the Norwegian coast, incl. in Aalesund and Geiranger: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/article10669958.ece

    What I notice is that the Queens are not on the list this year. Why???
    Cheers,

      Here's the Nordkapp arrival list:

      Like Ombugge says, no Queens, very few P&O boats, even a reduced number of Princesses? What have we done to upset Carnival?
      Cheers,

      Even at 11.6NOK to the £ (we were not quite 9 to the GBP a couple of years ago)? Mind you I suppose these things are planned years in advance.

      Plenty of P&O cruises to the south though ... http://www.pocruises.com/cruise-dest...jords-iceland/

      and Cunard ... http://www.cunard.co.uk/destinations...jords-cruises/

        Cruise season 2015 opened in Kristiansund today. 152 meters long (short) VOYAGER arrived 09:00 local time and plan to depart 17:00. No pictures from me yet, as I also have to be at work ;-)

        (Seagull, if you read this: Tried to send an SMS to your mobile phone a week ago. Don't know if I got the correct number)

          Outside of the official schedule of cruise ships calling Kristiansund this season, MARCO POLO came scilently through the Markussundet inlet Thursday morning at 0800.

          I had no time left to go see her then, so my images are from after work and late in the evening, as she left for Geiranger at 0130 Friday.

            Then, a pizza came floating by :-)




            So then the clock had passed 2100, and it was time to try out my new remote control for the Pentax, making it possible to lift the mirror before shooting.
            Should give a bit more vibration free camera...

            There are fewer and fewer left of these classic ships, and even fewer still without that ridiculous duck-tail installation. Therefore I belive we have to take their pictures before it's too late.
            I know there are thousands of images out there already, but not with Kristiansund as scenery and backdrop ;-)

              Pretty details and well arranged. You are right, there can never be enough pictures of these classic liners.

                If I could only insert a heart here, I would do just that.

                The Marco Polo also came in to Trondheim on an un-announced visit when they suffered engine problems off the coast--- got some pics to share too, as soon as I have downloaded them.

                Your images of the ship in your town is brilliant. I simply love this ship, perhaps because she is one of the few classical ships left.

                  I have been reading of M S Gann's voyages up the Norwegian coast every three years for woodturners.
                  Quite costly for the pax, but a huge part of the ship is turned into large storage rooms for timber and lathes plus all the other paraphernalia that the guys use. (The entire garage and workshop under our house is devoted to timber and lathes!)

                  I suggested to my better half that he goes off to Norway in 2017 but he is not at all sure about any rough weather.....!
                  Presumably at other times the Gann is training seamen.

                Flåm, April 29:

                P & O’s newest cruise jumbo, MS Britannia, entered service on March 14. On April 29 she will visit Flåm with nearly 4.400 passengers and 1.400 crew, 5.800 people in all, the largest number of persons to be brought to Flåm on one keel up to now.

                And I’ll be there to have a look….

                  an amazing sight , but no way will I go on a cruise ship this size. , long live the smaller ships. please .

              • #11
                WAOW... that would be an amazing site, but naturally, April 29th is a workday for me (as usual).

                Nothing happens when I have time off, but when I'm on duty, everything happens. No matter what, it always happens when I'm on duty.

                    Hi Kiki! Just wanted to wish you happy travels for Saturday and a great cruise. Norwegian Star isn't it. Sorry I can't get across to Norway to say hello!

                  The season is well underway: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/article10898799.ece

                  I assume that somebody else will come with more details of this maiden call in Norway by the Britannia??
