    Don't know why they've squeezed NGE between SAGA SAPPHIRE and BOUDICCA in September.
    Just found out that the NGE visit is the call signed in for the island Smøla north-east of Kristiansund. Smøla is under the authority of the Kristiansund Harbour Authority, so that's why
    NGE is on their list of cruise calls.
    This call came after a deal made between the travel agency operating NGE and a 19 years old friend of mine. I thought he said NGE will arrive Smøla in May 2014.

    Thank you ever so much, Galaxy!!! It was an article in our local newspaper yesterday about the coming cruise season. There they have CLUB MED 2 on the 20. July and NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC EXPLORER squeezed in between SAGA SAPPHIRE 5.9. and BOUDICCA 21.11. On all others they have date and time of call, but NGE has neither. Thanks also for the 2015 additions!! :-)

    Yes indeed, that would be an excellent spot to celebrate in July 2015! Cheers!

    And don't worry Sterkoder, I will not pursue the subject of Kristiansund and the Cruise ship traffic any further.
    Hahaha...., don't worry back (so to speak), the ones trying to take away this feather in the hat of Kristiansund harbour are talking to deaf ears..., as we say in Norway (only in Norwegian then ).

    I agree Cecilia, the Præsident Christie used by Thomas Cook must be the one you've found a picture or two of, the one of 1873.

    Re: Cruise anløp, Kristiansund 2012

    I’ve so very much enjoyed the topics that have emerged in this thread these last couple of days.

    Thanks for your thank you ombugge ….and yes CVF is so wonderful in these sort of ways isn’t it, and I think from this thread I may have led myself to something else interesting to pursue locally when time allows:- look what I found from an article about BDS in skipsmagasinet.no !
    1888: BDS starter med ukentlige turistruter fra Leith via Bergen og fjordene til Trondheim.
    1891: Turistruten fra Leith – Tr.heim. går inn i den regulære Englandsruten.


    Svein, such is the internationally recognised importance of Thomas Cook in the emergence of the travel industry, I think that any connection of a place with him would be something to mark and celebrate in a round figure year. But as you’ve realised, the tourism authorities would certainly want to see picture of the ship and a bit about it.

    I haven’t been able to find any other reference to a ship of the name President or Præsident Christie existing prior to 1873 (the build date of the ship we have found info and a photo of) other than that Hamburg to New York manifest of 1852. The difficulty in trying to discover more about the older ship from the single reference we have is that the emigration aspect tends to lead searches to pay-for databases intended for genealogical family history research.

    Although I agree there remains that nagging doubt without further info about the older ship, I do feel the 1873-built ship to be the more likely candidate for Cook’s excursion. Keep in mind that if you read further here under the Midnight Sun at Nordkapp heading the author goes on to mention ships available to Cook in the years 1876, 1877 and 1878 following the first tour.

    At this point I needed to go backwards and read about the earlier shipping companies (my hurtigruten-driven interest having previously tended to focus on years post-1893!) Look here in the section “Competitors” paragraphs 4 and 5 which has info about the Præsident Christie of 1873.

    (I also found note of two more photos in the collections of the Sverresborg museum in Trondheim which are of the 1873 build, but the earlier link to a photo I found is perhaps better and has the advantage of including a year date on it.)

    Raise a question or two on CVF and somebody is likely to come up with some answers, or some interesting links that leads you on to something else.

    I have spent most of the afternoon reading Mike Bent's detailed history of Hurtigruten, with more details then I have seen anywhere else.

    Here is a link to his book about Hurtigruten: http://www.lulu.com/shop/mike-bent/t...-17487479.html

    He has also written about Nattruten - Bergen Stavanger vv. and about the Fjordabaater around Bergen.
    Amazing deep knowledge of the subjects as far as I can judge, especially for a non-Norwegian.

    Thank you Seagull!!!

    And don't worry Sterkoder, I will not pursue the subject of Kristiansund and the Cruise ship traffic any further.
