      Another lovely lady in Tromsø . I have yet to see her myself in her new-old livery!

    Imagine if we could have more of those old-generation ships still sailing the coast with their original funnel liveries.

    Not to be overly critical, but the current funnel livery of the ships of today, doesn't have any history and doesn't give me any attachment to the ships. It's almost as they have lost their identity and history along the way.

        Hey Tommi
        My father looked at the picture and said it reminded him of when they traveled with her ​​from Trondheim on her maiden voyage in 1956 when he was in the military

        Yes indeed. It's however not too common to see the flags arranged in that way, and that really dresses the ship. The usual "Oldtime Hurtigruten style" is to lead the flags from the fore mast and down, and from the aft mast and down.

        Wonderful sight!

      Nordstjernen with all her decoration flags up looks awesome!

        MS Nordstjernen reinforces Hurtigruten on Svalbard from 2015

        Hurtigruten reinforces its presence on Svalbard with another old trotter.
        Hurtigruten is a wholly owned subsidiary Spitsbergen Travel already well established in the archipelago through the expedition ship MS Fram. Now also MS Nordstjernen go into traffic on Svalbard.


        Focusing strategic

        - This is a strategic investment for years to come. With MS Nordstjernen we complete offer of Svalbard. With 3-4 days at sea can be during a long weekend with the wonderful Longyearbyen and sailing along the northwest coast. This is a niche market only expedition we offer, says CEO Daniel Skjeldam in a statement.

        MS Nordstjernen will operate archipelago throughout June, July and August for cruises of 3-4 days, with arrival and departure Longyearbyen.


        Success on Svalbard

        - Svalbard, Spitsbergen Travel is very important for the group. We are already the main tourism operator in the archipelago, a position we are now strengthening further. We strongly believe that MS Nordstjernen will succeed in his expeditions on Svalbard, continues Skjeldam.

        Arctic adventure

        MS Nordstjernen is starting its Arctic adventure with a voyage from Bergen on June 1. When the ship visited fjords in western Norway, Alesund, Lofoten, Tromso and Honningsvag / North Cape before continuing to Svalbard.

        - Hardly any ship has served Norwegian coast and Svalbard better than wonderful MS Nordstjernen, and we know the ship will be well received in both the Norwegian and the international market, says project manager Hilde Fålun Power in Spitsbergen Travel.


        Listed ship

        MS Nordstjernen went to the Hurtigruten ships from 1956 to 2012 when she was taken out of regular scheduled services. Since then the ship has been used as a replacement ship and then ship the age of 50, she had covered a distance of 150 times around the equator. In November 2012 the ship was sold to the Inner Nordhordland Steam Boat Club has upgraded the ship in accordance with its provisions of Cultural Heritage. MS Nordstjernen was protected in 2012 and it has also taken care of Paul Gauguin's artistic embellishments in the staircase, dining room and first class lounge.

          BIG smile! They just can't do without the old Lady!
          It presumably also frees up Fram for more itineraries elsewhere during her Arctic season.

        After Nordstjernen came home from Oslo, they docked at a very familiar place

                      Thank you so much! Impressing to see the highly strained hull under the fresh paint!

                        Hello everybody! I am new here and glad I found this forum. Thank you for all the lovely fotos of Nordstjernen. She is such a beauty. Especially now with the BDS funnel. I am glad that she is still around and sailing. It would have been a pity if she had ended up like Finnmarken. I did so many tours on her and like that she will go to Svalbard and later on in september to the Baltic. Amazing tours to interesting ports. Hope there will be more in the future.

                            Dear wherrygirl! Thank you very much for the warm welcome to CVF. I am looking forward to sharing information about Nordstjernen and the other classic Hurtigruten ships. They are the only ships which warm my heart and make me happy, when I am on board. Hard to believe that Nordstjernen will turn 60 already next year. I was on board celebrating her 50th birthday and it seems just a moment ago... Hope she will do fine this summer and fall with her Spitsbergen and Baltic voyages. Regards from Stjerna

                            Welcome on CVF Stjerna. Hope you enjoy exploring this forum and it's many interesting threads. Maybe you find something else than Nordstjernen that excite you. Looking forward to your posts and pictures from and of Hurtigruten ships and trips, but whatever else that take your fancy is also welcome.
                            If you don't find a suitable thread just start a new one, or go OT on a related thread.
