          Gigantic indeed!

          I was especially awestruck by #76/1 which kind of makes Trondheim look like a model!
          My other favourites are the one with Munkholmen, and #77/1 with the churned greenish water from the thrusters adding an extra colour on a grey day. Yes, you caught this in other photos too, but this one feels just the perfect height of flying for a really satisfying composition in the frame.

          But if even just the thought of actually cruising on such a ship feels exhausting, be cheered - Serenissima is heading your way, pakarang, on Friday morning, the 20th!

          ...and then to you too Ombugge in Ålesund on Saturday.

            Serenissima documented - though not from air. Insert really sad smilie right here.

            I need to speed up the work on this photos - and there is going to be a small video on youtube as well.

            Local paper Address also made a short story on the ship, and Sir Gaute Myhre, a local historian also in love with this ship. I will make a video about that too, with my comments, if you want.

              I am delighted to hear about the local interest in the dear ship.

              YES photos, YES video! ... I want! (as if you needed to ask! )
              But I'll be patient. As I just said in Serenissima's thread, you do need to rest occasionally.


              I am pleased though that you already got round to updating your main page and included the link to your maiden voyage video.

              I keep meaning to tell you that quite a number of guests (the 'right kind of guests' that really appreciate an older traditional ship) that I have met during my cruises mentioned having googled around when trying to find out more about Serenissima, and came across your main page. They had understandably been put off earlier by many negative reviews especially on Trip Advisor from the 'wrong kind of guests' (the kind of people that would honestly be best advised towards other kinds of cruise ships). As a result of CaptainsVoyage and your influence the appreciative folk did choose Serenissima . The ship now has many repeat guests and a following, including many who had earlier travelled in Norway by hurtigrute ships.

              For these reasons, my intention was to add my support, and I would have devoted time in reinstating my earlier Photobucket photos in the Serenissima thread on the forum - though fortunately that task is now not required.

                Serenissima certainly has a very special part in my heart (oh, that rhymes too!)... and that will never change.

                When it comes to cruise ships, I really miss the good old days with ships such as the Canberra, Winston Churchill, Mermoz, Dalmajica and such.

                  Here are some images of the Arcadia from a couple of days ago. If you look further behind in this thread, I think there should be some that was taken from elevated angle as well.

                  Port of Trondheim naturally, dated August 11th 2018.

                  I especially like this first one for some reason:

                  And then, in the afternoon, she set sail again. Wouldn't have mind sitting poolside on that thing with a fancy coloured tropical fruit drink with some alcohol....

                    Back on June 14th 2018, the Marella Discovery suddenly popped up in Trondheim on an unscheduled visit - I think it was likely because of a strong low pressure system further south.

                    She is the former Splendour of the Seas and former TUI Discovery:
