  • A little taste of what to come from today:

    PS> The Food Festival and Beer Festival in Aalesund is also starting today.


    • Thanks a lot for the offer, Mark..I am rather busy at present but hope to take you up on that soon...


      • PS I just googled the vessel's name and all the info came up. It is the BHAGWAN DRYDEN 860627,, Australian vessel, referred to as a Dive support vessel. Curiosity solved!


        • QM2 in Aalesund today:

          Departing with full honours. Hessa Skolekorps playing their heart out:

          Brannsproyta doing her best to add to the festivities:

          Together with NSSR's Det Norske Veritas II

          It is kind of blurring the view from my vantage point at Blixsvalen:

          I shot a long video of the departure, but not ready for publishing yet.


          • Some more on QM2 in Aalesund yesterday, 24.Aug. 2017. Here from as seen on arrival:

            And more from her departure. These were taken by my wife on her phone from a different angle than mine:

            Brannsproyta ready to move out and drench us at Blixvalen:

            A smaller visitor coming in as QM2 is rounding Slinnigsodden:


            • It was a day of beautiful weather for the Queen to visit you. A bit of a change from the usual run of ships too. Thanks for sharing the photos with us Ombugge.




              • The day before we had two big ships in town.
                The Crown Princess:

                Getting a bit of help to do maintenance:


                • The second one was the Serenade of the Seas:

                  The two of them together in a panorama:

                  A wall of white:

                  PS> Now there will be a few days without any cruise ship in Aalesund. Next is 30. Aug. 2017 when Monarch and Koningsdam will be here together.
                  Last ship for this season will be Norwegian Jade on 14. Sept. 2017.

                    Terrific photos Ombugge of a ship I wouldn't normally get excited about. - those last two photos especially.

                • Bonus picture of the Splendour of the Seas getting ready to depart. Making smoke:


                  • Monarch in Aalesund 04.Sept. 2017:



                    • Nice new additions !

                      Hopefully, the Monarch will return to Trondheim next year for turnaround of guests.

                      This year they had to cancel all turnarounds at Trondheim due to expansion work at the town's city swimming pool.
