    A very new scanning-system has taken place aboard Finnmarken. I think it is called "Fidelio" or something like that.



    That means you have to scan your boarding-card almost everywere aboard.



    When time for breakfast. You have to "BIIP" yourself in to registrer how much you eat..........



    And also when buying a newspaper or a cup of tea in the cafeteria, you have to scan your boarding-card. Some of us norwegian passenger thought this was a bit annoying. But the japaneese nodded and smiled all the time.

    Kong Harald was the first ship to install this new digital system. Polarlys was the following ship. And now it was Finnmarken`s turn. All ship will have this system installed........

      Hurtigruten is a great part of the Norwegian culture and history. And the company is Norwegian. But in more tham one way, the "official language" on board is GERMAN. As you can see, the official name for CUP (kopp) is TASSE...........




      But Finnmarkens own "Postman Pat" was Norwegian. He stamped official Arctic Circle - stamps. And as you can see. It costs 85 NOK.....

        And now it is time to show what we are seeing when sitting in the Panorama-lounge or out on deck





        Beautiful colours up north where my favourite mountains are.

        Here Hestmannen from different angles






        And the island of Lurøy



        And south of Sandnessjøen, of course our great Seven Sisters

          When I woke up in the harbour of Trondheim, there was a nice light over the city



          And all of the sudden the mountains noth of the Trondheimsfjord became pink





          And the artofficial lights reminds us that Trondheim always has been an important harbour for Hurtigruten




          Out on the Trondheimsfjord we pass the Flakk-Rørvik- route. And of course I had to be outside to study our Captains ferry KORSFJORD




          Both Flakk-Rørvik ferries together. And when they met, it almoust seems that they were closing the gate behind us

            Nice sunset at Nordmøre




            Arriving Kristiansund

            Mr Ludvigsen, I presume



            Thank you so much for showing up Sterkoder


            Sailing out of Kristiansund, I was able to get a picture of the beautiful church. But I recomand looking at Sterkoders amazing images in the Kristiansund thread

              Oooh, finally a trip report again. I will never get tired of studying these, i am smiling about the blue thingies in the tree, giggling about the new beep system and laughing out loud about the coffee machine. I guess it is a WMF, but for sure they also have exchangable signs for different languages. Ask the staff to hand it over to you and fix it. In exchange they could offer you a coffee deal for free. I will return the thread again and again to watch the wonderful pictures and comment my favourites.

                I'd completely missed Martin's new posts until I spotted Linray's message. Great photos from FM - and I agree with Ralf, the trip reports are some of the best bits on the forum!

              Great photographs!

              I particularly like the one you took of Trondheim in the morning. The light is really beautiful!

              You have also come really far with your photographs - very delightful and enjoyable looking at great photos! Keep up the good work!
              With best regards from Jan-Olav Storli

                Just advanced warning that we are doing a Northern Lights Voyage on MS Finnmarken, from Tromso and return, at the end of February. I have never been on board this ship let alone sail on her so very much looking forward to the voyage. Hopefully have some interesting pictures to post, that is if I ever get round to finishing the Trip Report from Nordstjernen in 2012!

                  It seems to be the favourite ship for a lot of people so we were delighted when we discovered the Northern Lights Voyage with the flight from Glasgow was on MS Finnmarken.

                Finnmarken was North bound Hurtigruten in Aalesund today:






                As seen from Olsvika Marina, Hessa:


                Just before departure, at 1500 hrs.:


                At Prestebrygga as yesterday.

                  #894/1: I have not seen such a wonderful stern picture for a long time. These round shape is really beautiful (you remember what E. and the Captain always think about it?).

                    So when did they change home port from Narvik to Tromsø?

                    Comment


                      My "traveling-home-for-Christmas-trip" Bodø-Bergen in December, was with FINNMARKEN. By a coincident, my return-trip back to Bodø also was with FINNMARKEN. I will not post a "traditional-Martin-report" from my January-trip.this time. Just share 2 typical Finnmarken-pictures with you

                        Sorry if this is a silly question, but I can't find anything in the usual places. Any particular reason why FM is parked in Bergen city centre, and has been for a while, due for departure on Feb 1st.
                        Cheers,

                        Mark.

                          Thanks Ralf - that makes sense.

                          Finnmarken and Nordnorge have swapped their places as well as Vesterålen and Nordlys.

                          Well I suppose a change is as good as a rest - especially when you have a rest as you make the change! Many thanks
