    Is the pool water (and jacuzzi water on the other ships") heated by the ships engines?
    I know that at least the deck around the pool area is kept ice-free on Midnatsol and Trollfjord using the ships exhaust ventilation air.
    In some way the energy for heating is of course coming from the engines.

      Being fairly new ships I'm sure they have some form of "heat recovery" system on their engines. This may be a "Exhaust Boiler" to draw heat from the exhaust, which is then used for heating the "Hotel" section and to produce hot water for the bathrooms etc.

      "Heat Exchangers" may also be installed to recover heat from the engine cooling system to use for the "Water makers", using the evaporation method to produce fresh water from sea water when they are on longer voyages. (Not needed on the coastal run)
      This last method would be perfect for the heating of swimming pools.

        Have a look to this photo of northern light (clik over to enlarge the photo) from the bridge of MS Finnmarken. There is the geolocalisation in the exif data : it was there between Skjervøy and Tromsø.

              Have to rush in and correct myself: it all happened on Saturday

              EDIT: More pictures of the meeting in the 'This is Kristiansund' thread.

                      Finnmarken in some different shapes:

                      The model




                      The older version as a model.


                      And the young interpretion found on board the current Finnmarken.


                      And finally the playroom version. Can you name the rest of the figures?

                              The SB passage to the gym and sauna.


                              And the port side passage.

                              This is where the hair dresser used to be.


                              And I guess that the other side was equipped as a gym from the very first beginning?

                                The stairs leading from the gym/sauna down to the swimming pool area.






                                Quite nice atmosphere up here.
