    It’s been a strange unsettling sort of day today, and somehow or other that image of such a cheerful-looking Nordstjernen, that determined feeling of movement and heading somewhere (well, Skjervøy of course!) and the gentle side-lighting on the buildings in the background has both calmed and lifted my spirit. Thank you Asimut.

      I found this charming picture of Nordstjernen, moored in Ålesund on June 22 this year, together with Queen Mary 2 at Storneskaia, which is not the usual place for Hurtigruten to dock.
      I wonder what they thought, the passengers of QM2, when they saw this modest ship slip into her mooring at QM2's stern. Did they gawk, laugh, or point (LOOK at that), or did they in one way or another sense that Nordstjernen is nothing to laugh at? On the contrary! (By the way, I apologize to QM2, she is really no beast, but I found no other comparizon).



      But why did Nordstjernen dock at Storneskaia, and not at her usual place, Skansekaia? Here is the answer. June 22 was obviously a great cruise day in Ålesund, because at Skansekaia, Nordstjernens place was taken by MSC Opera (?). And in this case, Nordstjernens captain did not choose to dock on the inside of Skansekaia, as we have seen Trollfjords captain did a couple of days ago (See the where is Hurtigruten now-thread, if you are interested..)

        There was a third ship in Aalesund that day. The Eurodam was moored at Flatholmen. (Sorry, no pics)

            Here is the picture of Eurodam at Flatholmen. The above link will not show this picture for many days.

            Never seen Cruise ships there before. Anyone who has?

                    Not waving, but saluting a great photographer!

                        I strongly believe that one day, when this ship is gone from the coast and no longer sails, people will come back to this forum and look at all these historical images from her life.

                        Great additions!

                          Hear-hear...!!
                          And that's why I've said some plase in CV (or was it another forum), that you must continue to take pictures and tell the world when and where it was taken. If the vessel name is invisible on image, please also write that up, because:
                          As we now seek images and info on vessels in old archives and every other place we can think of on the internet..., the future "shipnerds" or to be serious, shiphistory interested will seek in OUR info and pictures. The one we make today.
                          That's why I belive we are doing an important job with all this photographing and not the least and most important for others: posting it.

                            And by giving each picture a correct and searchable text; name of ship, place, date and other relevant information!!!
