    This is definately not the right thread for this, but in case you are interested in actual BOOKs (not e-books), Wangsmo Antikvariat in Trondheim does have a couple of books about Hurtigruten in their latest catlogue....

    PS: These are all second hand books.

    It has been reported earlier that Hurtigruten will be powering their ships in part by "rotten fish" after conversion to meet the new emission requirements.
    Here is some more realistic description of the systems involved: http://www.ngvglobal.com/blog/hoglun...retrofits-0322
    It is true that rotten fish may be one of the ingredients used to produce the biogas though.

    Oioioi... those are some pretty aggressive plans for future development of the platou. I'm not sure, based on the little information I have, whether this is good or bad.

    A luxury hotel is out of reach for most Norwegians and will be something for the high end of tourists. A luxury hotel needs infrastructure. A hotel will transform this quiet area and pure nature-experience will perhaps disappear. One of the things that I like with the place is that it's so quiet and so wild (wild nature).

    Uhm... I think I need some more information and time to make up a better and more educated opinion.

    I didn't know that Scandic and Rica are the owners of the area. Learned something new again.

    Hmmm - I can see why Hurtigruten can influence plans to move the port to Storbukt (less far for me to walk when I'm there!), but they don't own Nordkapp (the beautiful place, not the beautiful boat) or the facilities there - at least not at the moment. There's been a lot of stuff in the press about the Fylke or Kommune taking the cape over, but at the moment it's firmly in Scandic and Rica Eiensdom's hands.

    Hurtigruten is discussing new plans for the Nordkapp. New hotel, busses and port for establishment as round-year attraction. I just found this information in the German Hurtigforum.
    I am not sure, if that was a good idea, to divide the coastal service into two parts... Hurtigruten is massively investing in the Cruise business. What will Havila do? Can the North survive the activities of two competing companies?

    I have the feeling, that the good old days will be over soon. A Hurtigruten traveller will not longer be a visitor and participient of Norwegian coastal life and culture, he is an economical factor then, and a lot of companies try to squeeze the maximum amount of money out of him.

    In the rendering of the forward panorama lounge, it seems like they are increasing the glass roof around the main mast(?).

    I like it, it's not that open at the moment.

    Me too, really curious on her interiors. Not the renderings and drawings, but the actual images taken on board.

    It'll all be exciting to see when the ship actually gets handed over to HRG.

    I know the ship may not be completed yet, but the funnel is "really tiny". Perhaps they don't need more with batteries as propulsion, and a couple of diesels just in case.
