    These happenings make me quite worried.

    On the Norwegian forum they only said "main engine". Can't be too serious then, as they have set a time for it to be fixed. The HR pages state that she'll take up the route from Bodø this Sunday (direct from Ålesund).

    Here's a better picture: http://www.skipsfarts-forum.net/read...page=53#116402

      So...., 'Harald Jarl'...., I saw you didn't comment on the member of the norwegian forum who called our old Lady NX "shit" and wanted to make nails out of her the sooner the better...

      Well, hope they'll fix it soon and that she has some good years to come.
      Everyone is entitled to have their own thoughts about the matter, but I belive we need old heritage vessels in full service in our waters if possible.
      We need that link back in time, because it's not good enough to have old ships moored or on dry land as museums.
      That's my thoughts, but of course I'm coloured by being very interested in old ships, coastal culture and such...

        I guess there will always be those that wants her to become nails and those that wants to see her continue in service.

        For me, I feel that she can not possibly compete with the modern fleet in any way, BUT, she has a certain charm which I know many people love (including me also), and I totally agree with Sterkoder that it is very important to keep and maintain some ships with history.

        Though, I'm starting to feel that the hard route she is sailing in, is not doing her any good. She could have been put on a more relaxed service. BUT. (There is almost always a big BUT). Seeing how much the company invests in her upkeep, I also feel confident that she is well run and looked after both by her owners, crew and guests.

            I can understand your feelings "talfh". I really love the old vessel. But it makes me sad to see her suffer like this.

            It is not good for HURTIGRUTEN, and it is not good for NX that we can`t trust her schedule anymore.

            A tru ambassadeur like NX deserves to be honored in her last years. Not to be remembered as an old lady we can`t trust.............

                Oh sh**, that sounds ominous!

                HR has saved a great deal of money after returning her to service while parking and/or leasing the newships.

                Still the public only see an outdated ship needing to be in the yard sometimes because they run her to hard.

                Great shame.

                          Stad was nice and calm this night

                            That is such good news Talfh. What is now needed is a completely problem-free round trip for our dear NX.
                            The calm weather last night was a good start. I was already thinking how bad it would have been if you'd had the gales experienced in Edinburgh last night.

                                That is just tragic... this is what we all feared.

                                I will check her at Trondheim tomorrow morning!
