          A typical Rorvik night: wet and occasionally cold wind blew across the dock:

            I kind of like this image: I call it "Into the night"



            No doubt she once sailed under the house-flag of OVDS:





            When walking up to the Christmas tree waiting for the ships departure, I saw this motif: the image is not that clear or super-sharp but it symbolizes the purpose these ships have: the Norwegian coastal community's sea-taxi:

              Then, a few minutes behind her schedule she dropped the lines and headed northwards. By now, the morning after, she should have crossed the Arctic Circle and today at 15:30 there was going to be an Arctic Circle christening ceremony held on board.

                Now it is official:

                www.newsweb.no

                15.01.2009 08:38:55
                Utsteder Hurtigruten ASA

                Due to the MS Richard With incident, Hurtigruten
                will take MS Nordlys out of lay and into
                Hurtigruten service from Bergen on the January 29th.

                Guests previously booked on MS Richard With will be
                transferred to MS Nordlys, which is the sistership
                of MS Richard With. Hurtigruten will with this
                change be able to offer an equally good product and
                service level as before the MS Richard With
                incident.

                  Wow- having a sister ship just laying around doing nothing sure comes in handy sometimes.........

                  Ralf-or anyone- have you heard the extent of Richard With's damage yet???

                    It is not a good sign when there is an extra ship. When does the Hurtigruten contract with the Norweigan government expire?

                      The contract is running until 2013, i think. But they made the change, that they may reduce the service by one ship during winter. That's why they have now one extra ship.

                            RW has left Stavanger

                            It appears from Hurtigruten's website 'Skipene nå' that RW is now under tow. At this moment she has almost reached a point due south of Kristiansand.
