    Re: ::: Nordstjernen :::

    Anything behind the wild rumors online that Nordstjernen will be back to Hurtigruten again this autumn, when Nordlys goes in for maintenance??

      Apparently, yes! The crew onboard NX says so. But I'll wait until it's confirmed before I fully believe it..

        Another "excuse" for a nostalgic farewell cruise then???

          Re: ::: Nordstjernen :::

          I've heard that Nordstjernen will arrive in Bergen from Spitsbergen at the same day as Nordlys will leave for maintenance.

          Coincidence, or pure planning?

          I think we'll have to wait for the official announcement.

            Nordstjernen is arriving in Bergen around September 1? If you try booking on this date, and the next roundtrip leaving from Bergen, the Nordlys appears in the booking. If Nordlys is scheduled for maintenance, wouldn't it have been planned a long time ahead? Anyway, why maintenance so early after the come back?

                I wrote directly to Hurtigruten on Twitter just to ask. Answer: There are no plans to use Nordstjernen on the coast again. She will be sold.

                Either it's confidential, or it's not happening.

                  While checking the dates from September 1. and for several days (roundtrip), none of the ships had capacity on the car deck. Why? Is the car deck used for something else?

                    I often see this when checking for bookings, particularly from the UK website.

                      Now I tried booking only Bergen-Kirkenes, and the car deck is now available. Makes sense, why would you choose to bring your car with you on a roundtrip

                        We are off tomorrow to start our journey to Longyearbyen to join MS Nordstjernen. A couple of days in London first before we fly to Oslo and beyond. We will meet up with Seagull before the voyage and maybe see some of you along the way as we sail south back to Bergen. I'm sure in due course there will be lots of reports and photos appearing on CV!
