      Nice image of a nice ship - even in that kind of weather. Kind of wish I was sitting in one of the chairs in the forward observation lounge with a bunch of you guys drinking hot chocolate.

      Thanks so much for sharing the image.

        I just wanted to bring some life in those lonely sticky threads. These are some pictures from my cruise in 2007. Not good, but a beginning.

              Some turn off the light in their Christmas decorations when sailing at speed..., and some don't (ref. "Nordstjernen" )

              Nice images though, and thanks to 'Ralf' for blowing life into threads....

                In the evening there will be arranged "Nord-Norsk festaften" with entertainment.

                The ship wil be used as a hotel when she is docked in Oslo.

                On her way towards Oslo, Midnatsol will pay a visit to Moss 4.1. and Sandefjord 6.1.

                  Will you be spending a night on board or will you partake in the buffet on board?

                  If you do, don't forget your camera...

                      Midnatsol webcam from Oslo this morning:

                      There is ice in Oslo bay. Does this happen often?

                        Not sure how normal ice on the Oslo fjord really is but on the news a few nights ago, the rare arrival of ice in ... was it Krageroe? ... had become a small attraction.

                        This morning, on the webcam of Oslo Port, Midnatsol could be elegantly spotted in port beneath the Akershus Castle.

                          In the dock bay ice is usual in the winter. Not so much the last years as before, but there is. The temperature in the water today is +1C, measured at one metre depth. The air temperature today is +-0C in the dock area.

                              Nice ship this "Midnatsol".
                              After a while, several years (because I didn't like them at first), I've learned to like the design of these two ships.
                              Maybe I'm starting a small fire here now, but I've actually come so far when it comes to the design of the two ships, that I feel like this is the design of a hurtigrute. (As was the design of the italian ships years ago).
                              Is this a result of some inner year long depressed wish of a uniform fleet, as was the case in the good old days....?? (Well, not totally uniform, I know, but more so then than today).
