        Re: ::: Nordstjernen :::

        Last days I tried to find out some more information. They plan some short cruises to Hamburg, through the Kiel Canal and a cruise from Flensburg to Bergen, but at the moment nobody knows details.
        It is possible to book an overnight stay in Flensburg, everything else is not sure.

          Nordstjernen gets support from Riksantikvaren (The Heritage Ministry of Norway) according to this article on NRK.no:

            "Flensburger Dampf rundum" has a nice PDF at its website, with some historic and recent images of Nordstjernen as well as an enthusiastic text (in German): http://www.flensburger-dampf-rundum....mpf_Rundum.pdf

                Re: ::: Nordstjernen :::

                Some new articles about Dampf Rundum and Nordstjernen for the German speaking members:

                http://www.shz.de/nachrichten/lokale...pf-rundum.html

                http://blog.flensburg-szene.de/gut-i...f-rundum/5152/

                This is the first cruise for Nordstjernen after the shipyard. On Friday is open ship.
                The Flensburger newspaper wrote the new owner is still searching for a crew who can steer Nordstjernen in the narrow Flensburger harbour without bow thruster. In the shipyard the cabins should be enlarged.

                I don't think this is a good idea. I like the old cabins and bigger cabins means higher prices, too. Maybe Nordstjernen will become another ship for a few people with a lot of money. Most important is to install an working air condition. The hot air in the cabin wasn't acceptable. But my last cruise was many years ago possibly it is better now.


                By the way ... I bought a ticket for the roundtrip on Saturday.

                  Re: ::: Nordstjernen :::

                  Today I got a mail from the person who is still working organizing the further cruises.
                  I have to correct my earlier post. They will not enlarge the cabins. Because of Riksantikvaren it is not allowed. I translated the Flensburger Newspaper and I don't know why someone wrote this.

                    Saw a photo recently----- she's got her BDS livery back on the funnel, and it gave me goosebumps... (of the good kind naturally).

                      Seems like Nordstjernen cancelled Flensburg - the shipyard needs more time.
                      The visit in Bergen? I don't know...

                        The last status I have (from the ticket office, on Tuesday) was that theyr'e not sure that Nordstjernen will be ready in time for Flensburg. They also said that she's still in the shipyard, but it seemed still like a possibility that they will make it. The ticket office promised to keep me informed, but I've had no further news as of today. The "Flensburger Dampf Rundum" website currently still says that Nordstjernen will come...

                          Sadly, today I received confirmation from the ticket office that Nordstjernen will not be ready for Flensburg (she's still in shipyard and work will not be completed timely). So I'll not be going to Flensburg (surely the other ships there are interesting as well, but my main reason would have been Nordstjernen). Well, let's see... maybe I'll go to Bergen if she's ready then...

                            Flensburg is not so far away, I will visit Flensburg and I hope lightship Elbe 1 will be there.

                            I thought about Bergen, too. But probably booking a flight and a hotel some days before the Fjordsteam will be very expensive.

                                Kim... thank you so very very much for sharing those images here on CaptainsVoyage. [...there's probably an "emotional smiley" somewhere I can't immediately find, but consider it added right here.]

                                Big Thank You.
