                A beautiful image of a vessel that now is soon going to be finally retired, I would suppose.

                As far as I understand the "buzz" all around the Internet, she is to be retired when Finnmarken is brought home. There are however so many rumors flying around, so I do not want to start any speculations, but I would suppose Finnmarken might need some maintenance when she is done down under.

                  NORDSTJERNEN FOR SALE!

                  http://www.nrk.no/nyheter/distrikt/nordland/1.7774082

                  Nordstjernen is for sale. The old lady will be sold when Finnmarken is brought back home from Australia in two years time, NRK reports. Ragnar Norum, a spokesman for Hurtigruten ASA, says there is no chance for her going on.
                  Lofoten, on the other hand, will be sailing for many years.

                    I wonder why they don't take the opportunity to offer exclusive cruises for the geeks, similar to the theme cruises we have now included on all ships.
                    Exclusive tours on an exclusive ship to exclusive places for exclusive prices?
                    Who knows the most beautiful places in Norway better than Hurtigruten?
                    I hope they have such a business plan in their drawer, too.

                      I think this is what they tried doing with Lofoten some years back, but it wasn't a great success in terms of earnings.

                        I'm pretty impressed that you succeed with these fantastic pannings in even when it's pitch black. Terrific!

                          It's pitch dark outside, but it is still possible to get some good panning shots sometimes
                          All the practice you have done during the summer makes it much easier for you to manage these shots despite the demanding conditions.

                            Now ghosthunters have boarded Nordstjernen to hunt the ghost Ernst, NRK reports.

                            Ernst is an OK fellow, he does no harm, the captain says.

                                Nordstjernen passing the Lofoten near Skjervøy last May (I'm taking the liberty of crossposting this from the Lofoten thread since the video actually features the Nordstjernen!):
