    So many totally awesome updates here... ships that I couldn't catch at Trondheim and ships that doesn't seem to like visiting my port.

    I have been trying to keep up with the ships prior to my own work, but extra days at work and other things such as weather sometimes put barriers in my way.

    Here is however some of my ships the past week or so... if you haven't seen them on my bLOG in smaller formats.

    Please let me know if they do not show up because of the greed of Photobucket-board of directors.

    AIDAsol first:

    Hard to believe, but this is the same day! The clouds rolled in during the evening, and so did AidaSol.

    Thanks for your comments Cecilia.

    Here are a few more. 24 June 2017.

    I'm an engineer. At various times in my career I've designed things. To me they're beautiful. These ships too were designed by engineers and designers, I suspect they also find them beautiful. That does rather prove that beauty is in the eye of the beholder I think. Mind you if you're travelling on the ship, then what the outside looks like is probably less important to you. Certainly the passengers seemed happy, they were enjoying their excursions and many of them were walking around town - being very pleasant to everyone and spending money. They'll have had a great time, and that's far more important than anything else. The captain's sailaway message (broadcast to our house!) was very professional, positive and reflected on a what a great day they'd had in sunny Honningsvåg.

    So - old frog-face herself, Crown Princess. In need of a bit of an exterior clean in places. Interesting to watch these ships in harbour, many of them have crews out with paintbrushes the moment that the passengers are off, but this one just dropped a couple of lifeboats with fishing parties in them. I'm sure there was a lot of work going on inside though.



    The front.



    The back.



    More of the back.

    Wherever you went in the village you could see bits of her.

    Delightful, Mark. I always enjoy those times in the height of the cruise season when we follow a ship from port to port in various members photos. Sometimes from country to country, though I haven't got to see the Viking ships which dock at Rosyth.

    Next day and the sun is shining. It usually does if you wait long enough in the summer. It may take a couple of days, but it does shine!

    Viking Sky - rather elegant - at least from the front. Only just realised, there's something red, white and black lurking around at the back end in the first photo.



    Not sure about the back - although if you're on it the extra stability is probably a good thing. Pretty flag and excellent town painted on the stern though, wish you could say the same for the big ships that operate out of the ports near us. Anyone fancy the 'infinity' pool at the back?





    I assume that all those wooden longships full of marauding hooligans (oops, sorry, I'm reliably informed that the Norwegian vikings were farmers and traders - and I believe everything my Norwegian viking tells me to) had these on their funnels/masts.



    If we were to scale up what our window cleaner charges to what these guys need, I think I'd need another mortgage.
