    You have a perfect location when it fits with the passage of ships and when you have the opportunity.
    Great pictures of the ship passing by your ship.

        Ocean Majesty heading northbound on Wednesday, a few hours north of Trondheim. More like the Med than the Norwegian coast.



        Cheers,

          I was lucky that time. For the most part, I have been on the "wrong" side of the fjord when they came by, no matter if they were ahead of schedule, on time or even when they were late.

            What a beautiful vessel. I have a great friend from the Philippines on board, we sailed together 25 years ago and still keep in touch. Unfortunately, Trondheim is not on the menu this year.

            From my friends FB, I also saw images when they sailed INTO and turned around in the Trollfjord! That was amazing!

            Thank you so very much for sharing these brilliant images. I'm in love with this ship!

            I have a hate-love relationship with the Ocean Majesty. In the past, like 30 years ago, this would be classified as a .... "less attractive" ship, but today, I'm actually quite fond of this cute, small vessel.

            It would probably be a wonderful experience to be a Captain of such a wonderful cruiser.

            Thank you for sharing, at least I'm one that appreciates these.

              My last look at PRINSENDAM before she heads to Phoenix See Reisen and becomes a new white swan with a name that I never seem to manage to remember....

              Her new name is something with A and E, and it was a short name.

              Prinsendam outbound from Trondheim today on June 21st 2019:

                You will all get a lot more pictures to see of her, since we're booked in for a cruise through the Greek islands in October, including the passage through the Corinthian Canal. Start and endpoint of that Cruise is Venice. I agree, Jan-Olav, i have some similar feelings, but it is hard to find a cruise on a traditional small vessel for a reliable price. And so there is Ocean Majesty.

                The new name of Prinsendam will be "AMERA". https://www.phoenixreisen.com/amera.html

                    And for a rather less tasteful paint job I offer you Aidabella this evening.

                      Thanks for the replies and comments.

                      AMERA.... will certainly try to remember it next time. Certainly not easy to remember that name.

                      Thanks for sharing the image of Prinsendam in particular. I just love this ship, I have so many stunningly amazing experiences on this ship, from all 5 continents of the world, and to some of the most exotic ports you can ever imagine!

                      Your images are so great to see POLO... crisp clear and the light is so beautiful. The backdrop mountains is also enhancing your images as well. Naturally.

                              Thanks J-O.

                              Just something a little different - one of the main reasons I find staying in our little corner of Finnmark so restful is that I can watch the 'circus' associated with each cruise arrival. Last night Aidabella visited (photo above), but so much goes into each arrival..

                              Firstly the Los (pilot) boat shoots out into Magerøysund, returning shortly afterwards without one of her staff.



                              After a little while something big and graffiti-ed appears beyond the molo (harbour wall) and the rope handling boat Fjordfuglen starts to putter around the harbour, safe behind the ISPS fencing.



                              The slightly battered cars of the summer harbour crew roll up and loads of layers of waterproof, floaty type stuff gets donned.



                              A few hardy locals join me on the harbour front, some tucked up in their cars, others sitting on anything that is just a little out of the wind.

                              Along the pier they go (past the very late-running Finnmarken)



                              The best fun bit is watching them levitate/hover down from the pier to Fjordfuglen. Basically a leap of faith, one slip leads to an early bath.

                              Cheers,

                              Mark.

                                NICE.

                                As you probably have seen in the past, I always love images that show also the people "behind" making something successful. Perhaps that is the care for the underdog in all of us?
