    If not anything else, at least (like Lady C suggested) remove all the Dag Bakka artwork and transfer them to other ships during the charter.

    It would be tragic if they are sent 'down under'.

            The keyword in my scramble is 'shipspotting'. That usually involves a camera

              Hopefully, they spot the right ship...

              Came to think of it today: when Finnmarken sails out from the shipyard in all white costume, it won't be the first time in the history a coastal steamer by the name Finnmarken sails all white! White is eventually back!

                Nope, that's right. The first "Finmarken" (with one letter 'n' that is), was delivered from Trondheims Mek. in 1912.
                By the way, as the ship was broken up in the Netherlands, or rather Holland, in 1960, the 1. Class smokesaloon was taken care of and can be seen at Bergen Sjøfartsmuseum...., correct me if I'm wrong

                    I've heard rumors that Finnmarken has already received her white coat?

                    Anyone in that area which can give us an update?

                    I wonder how that'll look like.... I think it might be quite cool seeing her in bridal-innocent-white.

                          Well, we are quite used to see cruise ships in an all-white "dress"..., so this should not be different.
                          Hope they paint some sort of a logo/name on her to promote Hurtigruten on her way south.

                            I think dressing her up in white is a good idea. It's more comfortable with a all white hull in the warmer areas of the world, and, maybe more important, whith a white hull it's easier to see how (at least the exterior) is being maintained while away

                              think this looks very strange we'll see her with a black hull again faith?

                                I'm already a great fan of her new white hull.

                                She looks like a real cruise vessel and naturally, this will be a great advantage during her warmer touring.
