    Sounded like an April's joke to me too, but sadly, it wasn't. Glad they took time being responsible and double-checked their calculations first though.

    Basically, a calculation error which made the ship heavier than permissible forced the company to do some weight reduction. Re-calculations now confirms that the previous calculations were wrong and that the ship wasn't too heavy after all. The pool should now be back in use again.

    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...

    Good question. And #5: i suppose youdid not try a swim northern of the polar circle? I remember we had fun in november in nordnorges whirlpool somewhere out in the barent sea near batsfjord.

    #974-5 - Are those seats on the deck or hovering 15cm above it?

    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.

    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.
