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

    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 ┼lesund 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 Ris°yhamn this morning and got a bow damage.

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

      "Trollfjord" have had a collision with the quay in Ris°yhamn. 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 Ris°yhamn.

      • 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.
