    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

        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.

                Well Jan-Olav. I am NOT fan of the white hull. Maybe this has to do with emotions and associations. Do you long too much back to your beloved white Crystal vessels?????????????????????

                I like to see Finnmarken as a HURTIGRUTE. Not as a cruise-ship or hotel-ship. Seeing her dressed in white makes me a bit sad

                I agree with you Helgeland. I don`t think she looks like a Hurtigrute anymore.

                  Very valid views on the whole HM. I think my fascination of the white hull is based on two reasons: firstly I would like to see a white Hurtigrute, like what was usual many years ago: secondly, as you mentioned, I miss Crystal.... (=shocker!).

                          While FINNMARKEN is in dock, prepearing for her long journey "down under", I will go back in time to her maiden voyage in Hurtigruten.

                          "Avisa Nordland" was onboard. And of course a "young" CV-member.

                          Here I am sitting in front of Kjell Nupen`s beautiful artwork in "Fløybaren". The artist Kjell Nupen is a former neighbour and school-mate from Kristiansand. And I had a live-report from Finnmarkens maiden voyage by phone to a local radio-station in Kristiansand while Nupen was sitting in the studio.

                          The following report and photo, is a copied report from "Avisa Nordland" april 24. 2002

                            Now I have more Norwegian reading practice!

                            Jan Martin, you are giving me a treats on such a regular basis recently! – like the reference to Hamsun just when I had been thinking about that writer (you’ll see why sometime later today if I get that far in posting something on Midnatsol’s thread…).

                            And now this morning you just casually mention that you were a school mate of “the Blue Painter” !!!!!!!!!!!! how absolutely cool is that!!!!!!!!!!!!
                            – see, you are driving me to almost ehp-quantities of exclamation marks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                            On Finnmarken I specially like Endeløs reise.
                            Less his characteristic blue, but a favorite of mine in the restaurant on Trollfjord, is this:-

                                The reader's comments below the article mention a "tragiske hendelsen natt til søndag" (tragic incident on Sunday night).

                                Does anyone know what happened?
