    Don't know if these two fit the description as Cruse ships, but they are presumably on their way to Svalbard for the season:

    Presently entering Folla on the way towards Tromso.

      Definitely cruise ships in my kind of definition. The cruise destination is in the foreground. Not the luxury resort you‘re aboard. Isn‘t this cruise to that destination much more authentic than in a 5star floating hotel?
      Lofoten '07 ...... Nordnorge '11

        They have left Tromso and is on their way to Longyearbyen as we speak.

      Magellan was in Trondheim some days ago, the weather was absolutely perfect for a flight:

        Saga Pearl II was in Aalesund yesterday. (Arriving from Harstad and leaving to Flom)

            Such a beautiful, classical vessel! Well done on both new photographs, Azimut!

                  With all the guests Meraviglia will bring, that will be interesting to hear.

                  Perhaps Norway is not prepared to welcome ships of such a gigantic size?

                    Great photos as ever Bengt - I suspect that the residents of Southern Norway would willingly 'split the difference' with you with the temperatures!!

                    Meraviglia back to H'våg this afternoon for her second trip. The new cruise berth, Kai Nord, still not fixed, so she'll have to sit at anchor again.
                    Cheers,

                    Mark.

                      Thank you for the comment.Mark

                      You know, we up in north-Norway we are kind of used to this type of weather even if you think we are in june and expect the weather to be a little warmer.
                      But it's only early in june and I am sure the weather will turn out for the better in a week or so.
                      It can't be worse or can it???

                        I was pleased you thought to take a shot getting these two ships together It really conveys their size, still dominating even in your wide open landscape!
                        Phew …it must have been quite a day in town, although at least their timing was staggered!

                          On Friday 08. June the MSC Meraviglia will be in Aalesund, together with Aurora and AIDAsol. That is probably worth a trip to town, although it is bound to be crowded.

                        Fresh snow on the mountains behind??

                        Yes,with such "summer tempratures" there will be fresh snow in the mountains.
                        But the metrologists say that it gets hotter this weekend so we hope for warmer times then.

                        Let's hope for 10-12 degrees.
                        Oh no, it's getting too hot, I'm already sweating
