    Too much headlight. No fun at all...

    Ah..., much better. Light source on the correct side, at least for tonight. From the fire station area

    Pretty! I'm sure you know the story, but QV has a 4 meters shorter "sister", as M/S Arcadia was ment to be the new Queen Victoria. At the end, the ship ended up in P&O Cruises as Arcadia, with the same main mast as all of the Cunard queens. The funny thing is, ARCADIA will visit Kristiansund 10th August this year.

    Impressive view, at least I think so

    South of the city with mountain Freikollen in the background. (Someone is always there to position themselves between my camera and the motif...)

    Full speed ahead for Geiranger. (Full speed this time, means 19,5 knots)

    Finally..., finally, the day came, 28th May 2018.
    I've been waiting for this day since three years ago, when I first heard rumours that Kristiansund was on the schedule for Cunards QM2 to visit.
    Anyway, the ship changed to Queen Victoria along the way, and today she arrived from Bergen.
    I stole a couple of hours from work, as ten wild horses wouldn't be able to hold me down at work today.
    My first picture was taken from the west side of Innlandet, then from the Vågen inlet at Israelsneset on the Gomalandet island. Then over to Innlandet again as she moored around 9 AM local time.
    After work and dinner, my daughter and I drove to town again to watch the departure for Geiranger at 6 PM.
    It was too much headlight from the "Hollywood"-sign, so we ended up on top of the Hauggata street near the firestation.
    Hope you all enjoy :-)

    We have so many places to photograph cruise ships from in this city. Here's one from the Sørsundet bridge

    You spot QV?

    Beautiful pictures - especially those taken at Markussundet on her departure. I also liked the colourful one of the funnel with the buildings in the foreground.

    Kristiansund is a great place to get up-close-and-personal with the ships, and all the islands lets you get different vies of the ship. Trondheim is as you know, very limited when it comes to angles, unless you drag along a super-telezoom off course.

    Sterkoder! - This is weird - I read your comment and yes, the post I referred to was #225 which was on the previous page - your last two photos in fact.
    So I logged on to say oops silly me, only to find that the post with the final photos is now at the top of the current page and is #226!
    Anyone else notice this?

    Thank you for your comment
    I take it you ment #225, but other than that, you're correct. She will be back...., three more times in 2018

    It came as a bit of a surprise to me to realise that AIDA ships had not visited your city before now!
    Love your photos, and I really do think that the cloudy rainy weather is more of a factor in my enthusiasm than a Kristiansund-blue sky might have been (even though the cruise guests may have preferred the latter! )

    It adds perspective, mood and subtlety to ship and background city in that 'pakarang view'. Another favourite of mine is #226/2 where the muted colours of this lighting actually emphasise similarities. I can't help smiling as I see that serpent eye looking oh so appreciatively at the yellow of the foreground buildings. It’s almost as though those lips might murmur "so nice here ...I'll be back"! Of course it goes without saying that you clicked at exactly the right instant in capturing that moment.

    Finally the attention-grabbing drama of skyscape, ship, and city, in that great goodbye, #226/3. Marvellous

    Wonderful pictures. You are right. Kristiansund is a wonderful scenery to take ship pictures. Such a huge variety of angles and perspectives

    First time ever that AIDA Cruises visit Kristiansund, and they did it with their 203 meters long AIDAvita today, 23rd April 2018.
    Here are 19 of my 54 pictures from the arrival at 0700 and departure at 1600 hours

    This quay was until a few days ago an ISPS-restricted area with a high ugly green fence. The port authorities tore down the fence, opened up the quay and put benches and tables there for us to enjoy.

    AIDAvita built by Aker MTW in Germany and delivered in 2002. She cost $350 millions to build.

    Yes, I noticed that.
    Don't know how much work it is for you, but I've always considered your list and updates a bit more complete and not to forget early with the latest info.
    (I've always considered you more updated than the port authorities here).
    But as the Kristiansund Port Authorities cruise lists looks ok, and goes three years forward, I guess you don't need to update here no more.
    I also notice they say that their Facebook account will be updated with changes in the cruise traffic every time it's needed, as the changes happen, so I guess we (I) will have some sort of a "real time" cruise list on the port authorities Facebook-account, to put it that way.
    As I've said and pointed out several times, I'm forever thankful for what you do and have done. Thank you so much!!!
