      Ahhh.. no ship like the Finnmarken...

      Great seeing these from Rørvik - a place I'm so familiar with!

          Striking image - truly "Hurtigruten" as I remember it so well. Love the large windows of this ship - and in this image, you can clearly see the "insides" of the ship because of these panoramic windows.

              For the first time at this period of the year, Françoise and I will be onboard from 20th february to 4th march for a whole trip. We choose Finnmarken for its observation deck at the bow (like Fram).
              Hope we'll have a real Norwegian weather and the opportunity to see some northern lights (though if we don't, Hurtigruten offers another 7 days trip for free!!!) .
              Of course I'll be ready for a friendly chat with CVF members when docking.

                Great. I wish you a pleasant journey. I am curious to see some detailed report before we embark at end of june. Please have a look at the vehicles they take abord. Especially if there are big ones: suv, pick up, transporters, vans! And enjoy. A whole trip is perfect and still on my list also ( however it must be on lofoten in my case).

                  Perfect choice of ship... Finnmarken is one of the really best ships I think, and the bow-viewing deck is a great place as long as the weather and clothes holds.

                    Due to à wonderful Weather yesterday the call at Honningsvag was magic. Photos Will come later. Many thoughts to Mark,the almost local.

                      Can't wait for the photos Yves. I know yesterday was special up there because my brother in law, bless him, posted a photo of FM arriving on Facebook and he said what a perfect day it was. Have a great time.

                      Here's what it looked like from the webcam - perhaps we can see you? (Sorry it's a bigger file than usual).

                      As ever - enormous thanks to Kystnor.no for these BRILLIANT webcams along the coast.

                      Cheers,

                      Mark.

                        I'm not a FB subscriber Yves - hopefully you'll post some of the photos when you're back in the tropical south!

                      Spot on Mark.Normandy is certainly tropical... mainly during the rainy season.

                        Mrs PoloUK often complains that when she left Norway 20 years ago she thought she was moving to the tropical south, but perhaps she may have been slightly misled.

                        Honningsvaag is forecasted to be one of only a few places in Norway and most of Northern Europe with temperatures above freezing tomorrow:
                        https://www.yr.no/place/Norway/Finnm...ningsv%C3%A5g/

                        PS> Aalesund is the only place today. (Except Longyearbyen)

                      This round trip was a real delight. White landscapes, blue sky, showers of snow and an hour later glorious sun....
                      As for Finnmarken I have to say it was an excellent choice, even though she was full on northbound as well as southbound. But she is large enough to find a right place to enjoy what the Norwegian coast can give you.
                      I will post pictuces of this trip in several threads (Kingdom of Norway....) but as a begenning, here are some of the ship.

                        For this voyage I had broken open my piggy bank and booked a mini suite. Well situated on deck 5 we were close to the door leading to the bow or the stern which we could reach easily in case we have the chance to see northern lights ( so we had!!!).

                        On the panoramic deck,on the bow, mind the step , mainly when it's slippery.

                            When i read clippers question, i checked back the picture and on my i-phone it seemed really like the seats were hovering! On my big screen in the office this effect does not appear such clearly. But on the i-phone this is a nice view...
