        Oh dear, what a beauty she is!!! She never looked better! Thank you Pakarang for these wonderful images. It is true, we can not get enough of her..... On June 4th she will be back in Trondheim again from 08:00 until 12:00!

          Beautiful ship indeed. She looks "busier" in style than Lofoten and I'm still pondering on the differences.

        So happy to hear that you enjoyed those images.

        From my own ship, it was a great opportunity to almost sail all the way around her. She was only sailing at 4-5 knots towards Trondheim, so it gave me a rare opportunity to see her from different angles.

            Trondheim May 21, 2015:

            Wandering restlessly around Trondheim harbour, I suddenly saw famliar lines. And yes! There was Nordstjernen! Docked at the cruise pier! D**ned ISPS fence. I think she was doing some private cruising before her summer season at Svalbard begins in June. I wish her a happy summer and welcome back in the schedule next winter, taking Midnatsol's place!

                Nothing but palms. Maybe the idea is to give us warm feelings....

                I think she should have palms in the bow as well. Or on top of the wheelhouse.

                She must have picked those up in Trondheim I think. They were not there when Pakarang took pictures of her 4 days ago.
                Maybe somebody in the crew raided Palmehagen in Trondheim??

              You can see her on that 92 passenger cruise at anchor in "This is Norway - all places without their own thread". (Posted a few days ago).

                Yes, with the same "palms" clearly visible, if that is what it is.

                I don't know. Nobody wanted to tell neither who chartered her nor why those trees were there...

              A short and simple video of Nordstjernen as she arrived from Svalbard on September 1st:

                Cool flow in that!
                600 f/4!?!

              Perhaps you remember the images I took in May this year as Nordstjernen came to Trondheim on her way northbound to the summer season at Spitsbergen/Svalbard?

              See post 2026 onwards (above - top of page)....

              I was also very lucky to be in the right place when she came back on her southbound voyage after the summer season up north.

              The date was September 4th 2015:

                  WONDERFUL PICTURES!!!
                  Reminds me when standing on the pier at RIS in the 90'ies, waiting for her. She would appear just like in these pictures - at first far far away, then approaching while turning through the bends of Risøyrenna and finally dock. Thank you for such perfect quality images!!!

                I believe we have a member on board(?) How coll would it have been if that person saw themselves in these images:

                  It is nice to see that they apparently opened the bow section and the bridge wing for passengers. These are very nice spotter places!

                    I agree... the bow is a very special place on these ships, though I do understand the safety aspect (mooring lines, bollards and obstructions).

                    I too miss the opportunity to hang out at the bow, especially in rough waters.
                    However, in this age of compensation frenzy, I can't blame the owners wanting to keep bow and stern clear, as they do on Lofoten..

                    Remember a trip autumn-09 (I think) from Bodø to Kristiansund on Nordstjernen. Had not been onboard since the mid-90'ies and did not know which ship was enroute that day. Few passengers, and I was allowed onto the stern. The deckhands laughed at my enthusiasm, and hovered behind me as I leaned forward to watch the bow-wave. Jeez. can still see the sight of it. Happy memories...

                  "Nordstjernen" have finished her explorer trips on Svalbard and was heading south that morning.
