    Re: Cruise anløp, Kristiansund 2012

    Thanks for giving us that story...!
    Now I recall the story, because I can remember you've told it before, or at least written about it on your CV pages.

    It's crazy to think about it...., as it's really not so very long ago..., that I had no interest in cruise ships, no interest in photography and did not care what happened in my city.

    Holy, am I glad I have changed!!!!!

    Yupp.... that is correct, I was an Officer Apprentice on board the Royal Viking Sun that time, and we had spent a day in port of Kristiansund that day. It was "Cruise Dagan" (Cruise Days) in Kristiansund and the Crystal Harmony was on the way southwards on their North Cape cruise. Captain of the RV Sun was Harsheim and Captain of C. Harmony was Maalen (a Tustna-native), they are amongst the VERY FINEST CRUISE CAPTAIN's you can ever imagine, and best of friends... to honor the city and the thousands of people in town that day, think it might have been a Saturday... Crystal Harmony made an un-scheduled call at KSU, arriving at the exact same time as we vacated the berth... cruise ship horn battle, a close bow-kiss between the ships, and thousands of locals cheering at the dock side....

    What an AMAZING experience.

    Juhuu!!!!

    Yes, it was back in the "old" days when the captains more or less was free to go where they wanted..., not the destination, but along the route, so to say (after talking to the ship owner company)..., in 1992 I think it was.

    I'm sure Jan-Olav can give us the story, as he was on board one of them.
    (Please don't ask me for names right now, I'm completely lost...., at work..., stressed to go home).

    Thanks for the ever so valuable update, Galaxy..., at least to me!

    It looks like it goes the right way for Kristiansund as a cruiseport,2 more is added one in 2013 and one in 2014....... Have it been 2 cruise ships at the same time in Kristiansund before?

    Change noted! Thanks!!
    I'm on a short holiday, on and off internet due to very bad conditions, but via my iPhone here I just want to say I'm glad GANN went out of the list.
    That is from a photography standpoint only, of course.

    Thank you so much!!!!

    Many familiar names, an ex. hurtigrute and two new ones (to this city).

    ARTANIA (ex. Royal Princess and Artemis) and THOMSON CELEBRATION are new also to me, so....

    Seems like the hard work of getting cruise calls to this city is paying off then, because it surely must be more ships visiting in 2014, I guess.
    They never had so "many" names on the table so early before.

    Thanks again, 'Galaxy'!!

    (I often visit page 1 of this thread, and so I did yesterday before posting my question, but the five missing names were not there then.

    Thanks 'Galaxy', I'm totally dependent upon you to get calls and names as early as possible. Such things are very nice to know in advance so that I can plan my photography tours around the county, mainly Ålesund and Åndalsnes when outside Kristiansund.

    I have 2 calls for 2014 so far, but the people behind getting cruise ships here have five more, 7 in total so far. Do you by any chanse have the five other names for 2014...??

    (The cruise company using 'Silver Whisper' said, the last time they were here, that Kristiansund and the nearby areas are 'undiscovered pearls' and they could not see the reason to why not more cruise ships visit Kristiansund. Now, that's something to have in mind).

    Heeeey, thanks for that one, Galaxy!!!!

    And what a date, 18.06......, my 51 birthday, and there's even a celebration in the ships name

    To be serious, I very much appreciate your earliest possible info on cruise calls to Kristiansund. Don't know where you find it all, but I like it!

    I remember when these were built and came into service, think they were built in Spain and delivered some time during the summer of '92.

    Braemar isn't exactly a beuaty of a ship, but it has some nice little details that you've captured in a great manner.
