    A few more of a beautiful and magnificent vessel called Marco Polo, a style of ship that is fast becoming as extinct as the Boeing 747:

      New record in number of cruise ship calls and passenger numbers for Aalesund port this year: https://www.smp.no/incoming/2018/09/...r-17572351.ece
      The season has been stretched to 102 days. Next year will be even better, with mare calls and longer season, as will 2020.

                A really beautiful collection of ships, some not seen at Trondheim.

                Crystal for example, they haven't been to Trondheim for so many years now, and there appears to be no plan to include Trondheim in the nearest future either. Sad, but mostly for me.

                I love seeing the Crystal Serenity - takes me back to happier times of my life. So many delightful memories sailing the world on a Crystal ship. And getting paid well for it.

                When I'm looking at these gigantic ships, I tend to think back on the days past when ships like the Mermoz, Winston Churchill and those alike sailed along the coast. These are the ships of today, and we will never get back the ships that "looked like the real ships". It's perhaps good, evolution will forever move onwards, based on demands and environmental restrictions.

                  Here is the ZENITH very early this cruise-season at Trondheim. She is a ship that I have seen so many places around the world and that I have seen in ports together with my current ships... I remember her from Florida, the Caribbean and I do also remember her from the Panama Canal.

                        Thank you so very much - always interesting to see "familiar" things from a different viewpoint.

                      Astoria moored at Prostneset quay in Tromsø today.
                      It's 70 years since this ship started its career as a passenger ship and after many rebuilding, she still sails.
                      The ship is probably best known for the collision with Andrea Doria in 1956.

                        I have to admit that I have never truly "liked" the Astoria, not even in any of her past liveries, but the more time passing by, the more I like her. She is one of a kind, and one of the few old-school passenger ships still in operation. With great sadness, I saw earlier this week that another familiar classical was on her way to the choppers in Turkey.
