    Re: ::: Nordstjernen :::

    Yes, Ralf..., I hope there's an official statement soon too, as my comment was made on the basis of "I heard it from a guy". But I have no doubt in trusting my source.

      This is great news! And it would actually make a lot of sense. She could do the "summer fjord cruises" that the MS Lofoten used to do some years ago for instance? And maybe go back to Svalbard?

              Some images from a while ago, when Nordstjernen was on her way to Svalbard / Spitzbergen... think it was on May 31st this year:

                      I had to race to Trolla to get this shot as well:

                        Kong Harald and Nordstjernen sailed together out the fjord, but didn't catch up before they were much further out the fjord:

                          Great picture report. Thank you! So nice to see all the detail pictures. I never noticed the jalousies of the kitchen windows. It looks like those bamboo things by Ikea...

                              It certainly is! I was following it all on Marine Traffic AIS that day, and it felt so special to see pakarang’s photo subsequently.

                                I was just starting to catch up posting recent visiting cruise ships photos in the Scotland thread, when some cruise related post arrives from Estonia! –a booklet with details of optional shore excursions on the Norwegian coast part of Nordstjernen’s Svalbard cruise next month. (That “next month” sounds good doesn’t it!)

                                These excursions can be pre-booked now, and I suppose they hope that guests have sufficiently recovered from having paid the balance of the cruise cost and will now be tempted by the extras!

                                Whilst I might have been just as content to do my own thing on these stops, organised excursions are a Very Good Thing for successful survival with my…. errr…let’s just call him “cabin mate”. So I’m getting all the disagreements and decisions over and done with this afternoon!!!!!….
