    And I belive you are spot on!
    Just looking at my pictures an hour or so ago, I had the same thought.
    I belive they dock not only on the majority of calls, but all their calls with the port side.
    Or do they have a suitable doorway on the starboard side...?

    I see at least three doors there, and one in fact of the same size and at the same position as the main gate on the port side...

    The reason I belive they dock port side in every time, is the lack of a huge cargo door on the starboard side.

      The backmost door is a hatchway to the engineroom.
      The middle is a hatch for bording tenders, lifeboats a.s.o.
      The foremost door is a reserve entrance in case need arise to dock with the starbord side.

          Here is a photo of Nordnorge (in Antarctica in those pre-Fram days) showing her starboard hatches. You can see how they were used to launch the Polar Cirkel boats and how the passengers boarded in our old-forum:

            No, I trusted my memory, and this time I was wrong.
            Seagulls picture shows that the backmost hatch is used to board the tenders, and the middle hatch leads to the cargoroom, to launch the tenders.
            There is a hatch leading to the engine room department, to hoist equipment and machinery in and aout, but this may well be om the port side of the ship.

            Please excuse my eratic memory.

              I was just teasing you, Sigve...., in conjunction with your suggestion to others about how to find an answer to that tube on the stern of "Finnmarken".

                I (heart) Nordnorge....

                This is definitely the most well proportioned and balanced ship: and through Asimut's photo's, she is best viewed!

                    I feel that the ship looked better with the funnel from OVDS.
                    It was kind of smoother... hmm, difficult to explain what I mean..

                      She is a nice boat. Especially the interior

                        What's up?

                        Todays webcam (June 16) from Trondheim harbour shows southbound Nordnorge lying in the inner position of the pier (usually the northbounds position) while northbound Midnatsol is lying in the outer position, (usually the southbounds position). Why have they changed places? Is this a summer schedule "thing", or is it coincidence?
                        (PS I have chequed the timetable not to make a mess up here...)

                          ....
                          Strange... and MS is also docked starboard side alongside...

                            I wonder if there is any connection with the problems with Midnatsol that Talf and HurtigruteMartin commented on a week ago?

                              It could be that they are changing the starboard "rescue rafts" , or delivering them to service.
                              But it cab also be the problem they had in Bodø thats troubling them...

                                There's definately some extra-ordinary activity on Midnatsol because she was still there in Trondheim at 15:30 (that's her latest AIS timestamp as read by me at 2010-06-16 17:35 ).
