      "Magellan" is the first cruise ship to Tromsø this season.
      After a few hours in Tromsø, they sailed to Alta (Finnmark county)

        Thank you for these beautiful pictures. One of the ships and cruise companies, which are quite interesting, if you look at the ships and the destinations.

          I especially like the photo #4 just before we sailed- in the evening.

            Oh, you were on board? Nice - and good to have an engagement already at this time of the year!

            Yes Ralf. We really like a February cruise and this one was very good. Crossing the North Sea back to London was calm too.

          That evening shot of Magellan is VERY APPEALING to me! Well done.

          I saw last week at Molde, there was a cruiseship too... it could have been the Magellan but from what I could see, it looked like the Saga Sapphire perhaps.

          The cruise season at Trondheim is still some weeks away.... ( here is the list as per Port Authority: http://trondheimhavn.no/cruiseanlop.aspx )

          I have also HEARD rumors that VIKING OCEAN Cruises might come in end of June, BUT, as afar as I can see, they are not on the official cruiselist yet....

            The first of the big ships is calling at Aalesund this Tuesday: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/alesundogo...n-12649974.ece

            It is also the first call here for this near new ship. Brannsproyta is bound to be there.

              Perhaps the only hotel that's open in Ålesund tomorrow is the big, white, floaty one with a flag on the front?!!

              (Big hotel and restaurant strike on in Norway this week - for once in our lives we went there the right week!).
              Cheers,

              Mark.

                I'm sure the Norwegians will explain - because despite Norway having been a major part of my life for over 20 years I've never quite understood it - but basically there is annual collective bargaining for each of the industries in turn. If resolution isn't achieved then the unions take out organisation by organisation until something happens or government imposes a solution. Not quite sure what the sticking point is this year, believe it's a mixture of money for some employees and something to do with local negotiation. Currently over 200 organisations taken out since Sunday - more here (in Norwegian) ... http://www.vg.no/nyheter/innenriks/l...pp/a/23667502/

              I missed the arrival and departure due to work, but here is my first view of Britania in Aalesund on her maiden call, 26. Apil, 2016:


              She blocks all view from Raadhuset Plaza:


              Not the most flattering view of her:


              Nor is this one:


              The duck tail doesn't do her any favours either:

                Impressive photos Ombugge. There have been (and still are) prettier P&O boats to my mind!

                  To get a full view of her we went across to my home island of Hessa. First from Hessaskaret:


                  Then from Olsvika:


                  And from Slinningen:


                  Back to Hessaskaret, up high:


                  And down low:


                  That is all folks, but I'm sure we will see more of this one soon.

                    I don't intend to offend anyone but she looks like a very large prison full of offenders of some kind.
                    Hopefully she will never hit a berg.....

                      Since neither Svein nor me got to see Britania arriving or leaving, I "stole" this picture from Aalesund Havn website:


                      Today there are two Cruise ships in Aalesund for the first time this year to date. Since I have not been in town, this is also from Aalesund Havn.
                      This is from Fjellstua, with Azura and Norwegian Star together at the Cruise Center:


                      Norwegian Star arriving this morning:

                      She was intended for Star Cruises, as can be seen from the hull "art".
