              Ever wondered what it is like inside a lifeboat??
              Fret no more, have a look here:

              What about when there are 150 people on board?:
              Now multiply that with 2 and add 70 and you get the number of people that is supposed to go in each of the lifeboats on the Oasis-class Cruise ships.

                In good company. Monarch and Nørvøy:


                  This little boat carries passengers and goods to the islands in Ellingsoyfjorden, some of which still have permanent inhabitants:
                  Here she is at her normal mooring in Norvasundet:

                  At the islands she just put her bow against the wharf:

                  While at the this place boarding is over the side:

                  The contraption seen on top of the wheelhouse looked intriguing, so I had to have a closer look.
                  It is actually intended used to recover people from the water. Here is the harness stored against the deckhouse:
