    So true. A lot of rumours. Lets wait and see what will eventually happen.

    Finnmarken is a beautiful vessel and I know she is extremely popular with many people along the coast.

    And from that, as a "cruise vessel" she will not be accessible to non-paying guests/visitors.

    Sounds like I have to make one last visit to the ship(s) before they become "off limits".

    It looks as if FM will become an explorer ship:-

    Really nice images - I almost felt like my chair rolled as I scrolled.

    Never thought about it before, but the skylights in the forward panorama lounge actually looks a little bit like a queen's crown.

    Does anyone know if Finnmarken will continue as a TRUE Hurtigrute in the next tender, or will she become an explorer-ship?

    When we see the difference between the ships of Hurtigruten at night, Finnmarken always looks a whole lot bigger than the others... clearly, she is the biggest ship, but at night, it really shows her size well.

    Probably my favourite ship.

    Great image as always - appreciate you sharing it.

    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...
