        Many differences... the clock is missing, the phone to the side of the ventilation outlet is missing... the whirlpool wooden sides are not oiled up, and there is something on the railing on the deck above....

          Oh, behave - you know what I mean - anyway, you've proved the point that she looks better than new now!!

          Maybe that's a new thread - spot the difference!

          Absolutely fantastic series of photos Jan Olav - Finnmarken was always a little special, and she's clearly lost none of her elegance. Having the extra big ship on should also help the cargo-lugging ability of Hurtigruten ASA a little more - judging by last week's financial figures they're going to need all of that!

          Hopefully Nordlys will look as good as this when she returns to service too - then all we need is a good home for NX.
          Cheers,

          Mark.

            Haha…this differences spotting could keep us busy for hours! (btw all my photos of FM, from 2008, are in this thread Mark)

            Jan-Olav, I’m thrilled you got to go aboard FM again, and this compilation of your then and now images is an absolute delight.

              Very nice report! Love the comparison shots!

              Here she is in Bodø to day, in and between the snow showers:

                Great to have her back in normal service again. That ship has a lot of must-travel-appereal...
                Not only fun to watch the differences (or the lack of them) but also great to see that pakarangs photography skills actually have improved to a even higher level during the years!
                And great images also from Bodø Speedbird! Now we're just waiting for the Stamsund report...
                i found it a bit strange that anybody haven't commented the lack of the "HURTIGRUTEN" text on the hull yet. She's actually the only ship in the current fleet that have not been painted with the logotype-text.

                  Long may it stay that way!!

                  I too am hoping that Carina has been able to visit the quayside in Stamsund today.

                    What a fun thread this became now. And so many wonderful photos!! A delight to scroll through.

                    And of course I was there tonight. The whole population of Stamsund was maybe there. It's been a while since I saw so many cars there.
                    Halfway out to the dock my stupid back-wheel on my bicycle locked after I used the break, (it was frozen) so I had to walk the locked bike the rest, which made me believe that I would miss her arrival, but luckfully she was late

                    A few photos from tonight:


                    I liked this one only because the lights around her looks kinda cool..







                    It was fun when she arrived and blew her horn, cause it started a whole orcestra of car-horns from the pier. Wish I had recorded that. It was a fun welcome.

                    And finally Tommi noticed the missing "Hurtigruten" on her hull. This struck me when I saw her tonight. Had not noticed that on the photos posted here earlier.

                      Glad you got there Carina - great story - and, as ever, fantastic photos.

                      The top photo looks like something out of ET, a spaceship coming out of the mist.

                        #661/1, yes that looks pretty space'y with those lights shining out from the sides of the hull.
                        #662/4, I wonder if those dining room windows ain't the biggest on the Norwegian sea?

                          Could that have something to do with her spending several weeks in Singapore while on the way home??
                          Re-painting the hull, above and below water, doesn't take that amount of time.

                            Nice photos Carina with this mood and Speedbird !!

                            I agree with PoloUK for the hull without logo

                                Absolutely stunning pictures from you pakarang, Speedbird and carinahansen.

                                "Finnmarken" is back along the Norwegian coast where she belongs, to serve passengers and cargo along our beautiful coastline.

                                I agree with you PoloUK, a stunning photo from Honningsvåg.
                                Best wishes from
