    Cruiseships in Kristiansund

    Det ser ut som at Kristiansund i 2012 får rekord i antall cruise anløp,pr dags dato ser det ut til at 8 har booka seg inn

    It looks like Kristiansund will have a record number of cruise calls in 2012... as per today, there are already 8 ships booked.

    Thanks for sharing these... clearly, she is doing cold-weather cruising with little time to freshen up the ship side.

    Marco Polo was here in Trondheim on the 1st of November, and the Magellan will be the last one this year in two days - on the 7th of November.

    Thank you!
    Yes, the camera will suit me very well, but I soon discovered I need another lense..., maybe a 300mm 2.8 or preferably 1.4 to make full use of the camera.
    But that have to wait for now.

    Great pictures of this old venerable ship.
    Congratulations with the new Pentax FF camera.
    Satisfied so far?

    Marco Polo is one of the absolutely most beautiful ships out there. She looks perfect! Even the choice of hull color is perfect for this vessel. May she have many years of sailing ahead!

    You know, I (we) have waited for many, many years to see large cruise ships in Kristiansund.
    To see and photograph other than medium sized ships, I had to take days off work and drive to either Ålesund or Åndalsnes, or both.
    Over all, I belive it is you guys up in Honningsvåg who are lucky, both for the numbers of cruise calls and the ship sizes.
    This is the first season I haven't been in Ålesund, nor Åndalsnes, and it feels like something is missing.
    Anyway, you all have a great fall and enjoy life :-)

    You lot are lucky to get the Cunard Queens and P&O boats like Arcadia. They don't seem to get up to Honningsvåg like they used to.

    At least the beautiful Oriana is due in this year, but only once, and when we're not there!

    Oi, det var interessant.
    Jeg har jo måtte kjøre utenbys for å se Costas største, og C' Pacifica har jeg stiftet bekjentskap med i Ålesund og på Åndalsnes.
    Ja, de vet vel at de kan ta inn store skip her også nå da, når det gikk så greit med Queen Victoria i mai.
    Snakket med en los og han sa at de hadde kjørt ganske heftige simulatorforsøk på å ta inn Queen Mary 2 til Kristiansund, og det gikk jo veldig greit det.
    Det var meningen at Cunard skulle stille med QM2, men så fikk vi QV i stedet, uten at det hadde noe å si for meg. Hyggelig at Cunard finner Kristiansund interessant.
    Så hadde vi jo det tiltenkte Cunard-skipet Arcadia inne nå i sommer, så joda, Kristiansund har tatt steget opp fra å være en havn for cruiseskip av middels størrelse til også å kunne ta de store.
    Takker så mye for info, det settes fortsatt STOR pris på det skjønner du :-)

    We often see crew with both hoses, brushes and white paint here in Kristiansund, but not today.
    I had the same thought as you about her hull, and I thought; this 90 days cruise must be the mother of all cruises, and the fares sky high, so why don't the crew pay more attention to how the ship look, specially in port, as they KNOW they will be photographed and posted all over. Anyway...
    Yeah... the great thing with Crystal Cruises was that they didn't only WANT to be the best in the world, they really WORKED hard on making sure that happened. The crew of Crystal was so dedicated, so professional and so wonderful... Needless to say, I've never worked with this particular line, but it does surprise me that they doesn't even have a paint raft on the water to do something with the rust marks. Naturally, there could be a simple reason to this as well: the port authority not allowing such work to be performed.
