      Yes indeed!!!!

      Pity it was Glutra that was at Flakk and Korsfjord across at Rørvik, but hey, our Captain has a big long lens!!!!!!!

        Unfortunatly I will never sail onboard Nordsjernen and Iam very sad she will leave the line in march.I hope the company or the state governement save her of a disgusting destruction.I saw her twice in the North near Kjollefjord and Tromso and it was a special moment as a trip in an old memory.
        Thank's all of you for exciting photos.

          Hello there, and a warm welcome to you, 'yvneac'!!!
          Yes, it's kind of sad that her days as a hurtigrute are coming to an end.
          She's protected under the Directorate for Cultural Heritage though, so she can't be sold outside Norway. That also goes for "Lofoten".
          I hope you find your way around inside CaptainsVoyage Forum, as there are many very interesting threads and the forum is loaded with members in possession of a huge amount of knowledge.

            Thank's for your friendly welcome,Sterkoder.
            It is nice to think Nordsjernen will have a quiet senior life.Maybe like Gamle Salten I saw in Bodo last december witch seemed in good condition.Anyway the man I spoke with on the wharf was proud of her and we had an interresting share about the norwegian collective memory about maritim activity.These moments are also one of the charms of sailing on the coastle line.
            Now I will try to send a little post to present my profile (but as we say in french:Iam not an eagle in net tool !)
            Have a good time in your magic country

              Well, I just couldn’t stand it any longer…
              I felt I just HAD to see NX during her last trip in service as a hurtigrute. And not just on TV!!!!!

              But which port to head for?….but then I got a better idea when I realised I could still book a day trip.
              …and then I got greedy and booked two!

              So, I’ll be aboard Harstad to Svolvær on Monday 19 March
              And Trondheim to Ålesund on Wednesday 21 March.

              Scraping together frequent flyer and hotel-stay points has helped fill in the gaps and I might even make it back to Bergen to see her coming in. I haven’t had so much fun planning a dash around Norway since Korsfjord arrived!

                    Holy.....!!!!
                    Guess I'll see you on the 21st then...., as I plan to visit on board when they dock in KSU southbound.
                    The meeting MUST be on board this time, as I plan to take interior and close-ups on the upper decks.
                    (Pray to the good Lord that they depart Trondheim on time, so we finally get our full 45 minutes of mooreing time in this city!!!)

                      Something says me that this round trip will be quite crowded with people? So great to hear that you are on your way again, and - now we're waiting for the outcome of the mysterious teaser...could it have something to do with the lady with the round stern?

                        Now Sterkoder my friend, I am going to have to be very strict with you! You are rationed to one handshake/hug if I happen to encounter you on board, and a wave as NX departs. No meet&greet table/beer/coffee/ice cream! This is your chance for meet with Lady NX, not Lady C!!!!!!!!! and I expect you to make the most of every single minute of the time the ship is moored in Kristiansund to run around taking photos

                        Tommi, no, incorrect guess…you’ll all soon hear once I know for sure myself!

                          Fun blog-post about Nordstjernen (in norwegian): http://blogg.aftenbladet.no/joneblog...a-rundt-stadt/
                          Not sure how to correctly translate the tittle, but "vomit-bag safari" could be a way.. haha!

                          Fun to see some of you will be onboard on her last trip. I will also board in Harstad monday the 19th and sail with her to Stamsund.

                            Google Translate doesn't know what to do with "spypose" but "spy pose" translates perfectly as "vomit bag". Assuming "Stadt" to be a proper noun (egennavn - I learned this from Sterkoder), I think the whole title would read well as "Hurtigruten vomit-bag safari around Stadt". It sounds delightful!

                              Brilliant Carina! (I've just included you in a pm reply to Kristian and Olaf).

                              It's so good we'll have lots of photos of Nordstjernen's last trip on CVF.

                                Is anyone going to have a video camera with them? It would be great to have a video of Norstjernen's last run through the Risøyrenna.

                                After learning its history, I have become enthusiastic about this stretch of the route. I love to see the little fyr passing by then the big sweeping turn before the bridge to come into port.
