      Media now reports har as heading for Fosen Mek (shipyard) ..... I hope they will get there because Fosen Mek doesn't excist any more... it's now called NorYards.

        "Nordnorge" arriving in Bod°. Two quite similar photos, but I couldn't decide which one was better than the other, so I'll go for both of them.

          Both are good - but still so very different. The second one could benefit quite a lot of a straightened horizon.

        I will be onboard Nordnorge for the round trip from Bergen on the 31st July if anyone else is around :-)? Photos to follow

          Wish I was! Have a great trip Graeme - really look forward to seeing your photos when you return. Hopefully summer will have arrived in the north by the time you get there.

          Ohh, I was of the impression that the summer was last Tuesday??

          Here is a picture to prove it: http://www.vg.no/nyheter/innenriks/v...et/a/23492663/

        Greetings from onboard MS Nordnorge to all fellow forumers :-)

          When Nordnorge and Nordstjernen met in Trondheim on September 4th 2015:

          I was also very lucky to be in the right place when Nordstjernen came back on her southbound voyage after the summer season up north.

              Nordstjernen seems to have a very large funnel out of proportion to her size. Was this a feature of the old ships?

            Then you should have seen the funnel of Dana Anglia (later Duke of Scandinavia). That was a large funnel out of proportions! For reasons I don't know.

              In the time of steamers, the funnel mostly was exactly what you would think it was - a pipe leading out the smoke.
              Nowadays there are often quite a lot of technical installations located in the funnel: catalysers, emergency power generators, air intake, a/c-compressors and lots of other stuff.
              Quite many of the 70's passenger ships did have some problems with the fundamental function of the funnel - to lead away the smoke - passengers often got soot on their clothes while being on deck. I guess Duke's funnel design might adress that particular problem. I've seen pictures of wind tunnel tests of the current Finnmarken with the goal to make sure that soot don't fall on the deck, and in the swimming pool.
              Carina might be able to answer the question about the physical contents of Nordstjernan's funnel?

                Thanks for the responses. In the days of steamers the problem of soot and stuff blowing around the deck was often there, particularly on still, calm days at sea. I remember refusing to out on deck because the stuff got in my eyes. (I was young)
                I suspect it has something to do with the age of ships, because the Bank Line ships (only the Poms will remember them?) had a low profile with cabins only for the officers and crew (no passengers) and the enormous black and yellow funnel plonked amidships.

                No, I'm not a POM (Prisoner of her Majesty) but I do remember the Bank Line ships, both from the South Pacific and in S.E.Asia.
                We would regularly meet up with them in major ports, like PM, Lae, Rabaul and Honiara etc. as well as see them here in Singapore.

                Here is a website that lists (I think) ALL the Bank Line ships that was serving the South Pacific in "your days" and beyond: http://www.benjidog.co.uk/allen/Bank2.html

                We also regularly met ships from the other main player in the South Pacific Island trade, like Burns Phillips, China Navigation, Swedish Lloyd and others.

              One company that was famouse for it's large funnel was Blue Star Line.
              Here is an example, the "Adelaide Star" from 1950:


              The last Blue Star Line ship in service, the "America Star" from 1963:

              Broken up 2003.

                  I have a blog, not wildly popular, perhaps because of it's "general interest category", but it still gives me great pleasure to write and share stories there.

                  A few days ago, I shared these images with a short story about the arrival to Trondheim by Nordnorge.

                    Sometimes the light is just there in the right moment. Great!

                  Northbound "Nordnorge" in Linesfjorden. Photographed in early May this year, from the ferry "Tysfjord", which was on her way to Fiskerstrand/┼lesund.
