    I agree with Ralf here, and today (09:30 local time) The Star arrived in Kristiansund from Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard.
    Took some pictures in the bad weather with my Pentax, but let me just give you my mobile phone pictures for now.

    Do you want to see what kind of boat the captain on board Nordstjernen own and use on his time off? Well, here's RS Hjelm Waage for you (you can spot this RS in the very forst picture of this post, to the far left).

        She is so good-looking and I'm so thankful you both documented - AND shared these images with me / us.

        So thrilled that she is still in active use here in Norway, under Norwegian flag and ownership. She could have been so far away from us that we never got to take shots like this of the ship that we all love so much.

          The bridge


          Prinsendam joined us by the Monaco glacier.


          We did a landing close to the "Texas bar". Unfortunately just a trapper cabin with nothing to drink.

            Enjoying a peaceful landscape.


            The guides noted everything we observed.


            At lunch time we reached the Monaco glacier (named after Prince Albert the 1st of Monaco).


            A bearded seal was watching us…

              Our second landing for the day was in Bockfjord.


              Hot springs, just hard to take a swim in those…


              The red Mountains





              I love this stair hall.


              Tonight's dinner was probably the best I have had on a Hurtigruten ship. As a starter we had duck and the main course consisted of a beautiful arctic char.


              When we passed the 80th parallell champagne was served.


              Evidence…


              On the Moffen Island we observed about 70 walruses. I think they have a quite similar Daily Schedule as me?


              And then came the mirror….









              To be continued…. Just one part left!

                Just look at that beautiful NORDSTJERNEN! I hope we will see her sailing for a long, long time. Thanks for posting pictures for us others to daydream into..., to put it that way.

                Indeed a special ship - so well maintained and elegant, and that is from a devotee of Lofoten......
