    Believe me, but I have STILL not been on board the ship to have a look... I guess I better get down to the port some time, and see if it is possible:

        Wouldn't it be so awesome if some of the people we see line the railings, actually recognized themselves and let us know?

          She does remind me, in certain angles, of one of those block LEGO ships I sued to play with as a child... .

            Thank you both for posting more woderful pictures of this interesting ship. I am very curious to see her interior so i would be so glad, if our captain would grab his camera one day and spend some time for a visit, when she is in Trondheim again and it is fitting to his working times...

              Yes, I agree - I really need to make my way down to the pier one day and visit her!

              The part blac/white and color image is really nice - love the fact that the ships stands out from the background like that. It's a very nice effect that enhances the ship!

                  What I noticed when travelling with Spitsbergen Bergen - Trondheim last week, was the the ship did not sail straight for long periods of time.
                  It sailed like a "drunken sailor", which can be seen from the wake on this picture.
                  The norwegian nautical term is "gire" (skipet girer = utilsiktet kursavvik) but I have not found any english term. (The ship is gearing?).
                  Apart from this, Spitsbergen was a sympathetic, intimate ship with a modern interior (no extremes like some others we have seen) and good cabins, food and an excellent open upper deck. My only reservation is the observation lounge, situated below the bridge, and far too small.


                  Regards; Sigve.

                    Yawing would be a good English term, although not much weather induced forces here: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/yawing
                    Probably caused by the Autopilot over compensating.
                    The term is also used when a towed barge, or vessel, is "yawing" behind the tug.

                    Noticed on marinetraffic that Spitsbergen had already departed from Norwegian waters - I guess her job was done when Midnatsol returned from cruises far from home.

                      Was watching the excellent BBC2 programme "Saving lives at sea" about the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. Some amazing photography, but also a red, white and black boat in Lerwick harbour as the lifeboat went past. Wasn't expecting to see Spitsbergen with my breakfast this morning!
                      Cheers,

                      Mark.

                        Nice new images of the Spitsbergen - now that she is back in coastal service, I MUST find some time to get myself on board the ship!

                          DANG - missed her AGAIN.

                          That should mean that she was in Trondheim on southbound today! I'll better give it a go again in four days (after night watch).

                          Excellent image by the way - snow arrived yet?

                              Beautiful images of the ships ---- super-sharp as expected and taken with great quality.

                              These are quality images not possible with mobile phone cameras - and therefore a delight to look at!
