    WOW .... that is just stunning.

    Really love the way the ship looks and the mood of the lights on board her. That funnel colour looks really astonishing with that sky in the background! Beautiful!

    Really nice photo of the old-Carnival ship.... pardon my French, but "dang" she smokes a lot! Those engines are definitely not optimised and would never be allowed in Alaskan waters or ports. Neither should these kind of ships be allowed in Norway either.

    If we let out that much smoke in Miami during the 90's, USCG would be on the gangway pretty fast with a hefty fine.

    This was the last call for "Magellan" in Tromsø for the season 2017.Here she is sailing out from Breivika harbor this evening.
    Next port of call is Trondheim on thursday this week.

    Thanks for the update - as far as I know, she never came to Trondheim as planned.

    I was way to busy at Rissa Yards to even look for her anyway.

    Hope the weather doesn't keep her away from Trondheim next week - though, I'll be stationed at Kvithylla Rissa Shipyard for the majority of the week.

    As reported in the Cruise ships in Kr.sund thread:
    Because of the weather MV Magellan have changed itinerary. The vessel is today in Ålesund and tomorrow in Olden. This means that Krisitiansund on saturday is cancelled.
    I'm not planning to go to town today, so here is from Aalesund Havn webcam:
    They have cleared away fishing boats from part of Stornespiren today:


    Double banking some at Sjogata:


    And there comes Magellan to fill the space allotted to her:


    Moored in place for the day:

    I think the MAGELLAN is due to come to Norway in about 2 weeks time - around mid-October.

    That will be the second to the last call for Trondheim. The last cruise ship will be on New Years Eve this year.

    She has left again, heading to Bergen.*
    Will that ACTUALLY be last call of the year, or are there more wind casualties to come??

    An unscheduled visitor in Aalesund today:

    I wasn't in town, so this is from Aalesund Havn webcam.

    She was apparently heading for Geiranger but made a turn near Stranda and came to Aalesund around 1200 hrs. No reason known (yet).

    PS> Here is the explanation: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/2017/09/28...ick_articles=2

    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.
