  • When I visited Ålesund 20. June, I got some pictures of Trollfjord from Fjellstua at Aksla, in early morning light.

    Turning towards Skansekaia


    Looks like she signed the motif for me :-)

      What a nice light.And this blue sea....

  • Thanks, yvneac, for at lest trying to make a dialog in here.

    Yes, the morning light was beautiful..., as it is in most places I guess. But later on in the afternoon it became cloudy and the light was more flat.
    It's always nice to be in Ålesund when large cruise ships visit. After taking pictures from various spotterpoints around the city, the highlight is when I can walk around in the inner city and mingle with tourists. Every now and then one of them make a hold of me perhaps only to ask for direction, and before we know it we have a conversation.

    Anyway, tomorrow Thursday 23. June we will experience a rather large ship in Kristiansund too..., as MEIN SCHIFF 1 arrive at 07:00

      Absolutely.
      But since I am a good boy, I give him to Aalesund as a gift.To be conserved in the ice!

  • From various sources:
    About an hour after leaving Harstad on Saturday 22 October, a 50 year old man fell from the sixth deck of MS Trollfjord.
    A helicopter from 337 squadron was en route to exercise with KV Senja when the crew noticed that Trollfjord had reversed course.
    The helicopter crew verified with Trollfjord the reason for the reversal of course and then located the man in the sea.
    The MOB from Trollfjord retrieved the man from the sea and then the helicopter picked up the man from Trollfjord and took him to UNN Harstad.
    The man had been in the sea for about 43 minutes but the latest report was that he was out of danger in hospital.

        Watching this picture during spring break is shivering me....

    • "Trollfjord" hit the pier in Risøyhamn this morning and got a bow damage.

      No people were injured, according to Øystein Knoph, from the office of Hurtigruten.

      "Trollfjord" have had a collision with the quay in Risøyhamn. There is no damage to either guests or crew. The ship has been damaged above the waterline. Incidentally, it revealed no injuries, said Knoph.

      The vessel is left to the quay while examinations of damage is continuing.

      Safety is the highest priority. We will therefore examine the damage carefully. "Trollfjord" will therefore remain docked until we have a full overview, says Knoph.

      Now this afternoon is the ship still docked in Risøyhamn.

      • She is now on the way to Harstad for further examination and repair. The cruise has been cancelled. Most passengers took a flight home. Soem wanted to change the ship, but that seemed to be apparently not easy (---> according to some stories in German hurtigforum.

          • We were lucky enough to have 3 days on TF this summer as she ate up the miles between Trondheim and Honningsvåg, saving wear and tear on the car and me. We enjoyed every minute, largely because of the lovely crew that looked after us. Travelling port-to-port gave us the flexibility to eat when we wanted to, and we basically lived in or around the cafe for a lot of the time. Hundreds of photos taken, but just a few 'homely' (Hi Cecilia) ones to share with you.

            Home for us. Deck 3, near the front. Quiet apart from the 'whoosh' of the water going past. Loved our little corner of the ship, and the way that storage space seemed to be everywhere. It wasn't this tidy for long though.



            Convenient that they should give us a copy of the map that we could read without putting our glasses on!



            The instructions of what to do if someone fell overboard intrigued me. "Shout loudly 'man overboard' and then:" Never before has a colon seemed so important.



            Not many takers for the sun loungers as we left Trondheim.

            Cheers,

            Mark.

            • Coming on ...



              Going off ... (baaaaaa!!)



              In the sun in Svolvær.



              In the rain in Tromsø. Seemed like the snow was a long way down for late June.





              "Salt caked smoke stack ...", nah, not really - everything was clean and looking good.

              Cheers,

              Mark.

              • Some people pictures.

                Knitting.



                Any guesses for this late night ceremony?





                (That was the putting the hot-tub to bed ceremony. Torghatten was gliding past us at that point).

                One of the drivers.



                We couldn't help thinking this fella should have been at the other end of the boat as we sailed into Trollfjord.



                Funny how this lot appeared when the sun came out. Most of the time we were moving we had the deck (and frostbite) to ourselves.


                Cheers,

                Mark.

              • Back end of our boat.



                And finally - oh, so that's what that big floaty red, white and black thing is!!

                Cheers,
