        Lofoten - scheduled maintenance

        I believe Lofoten's currently out of service as planned maintenance period, not unplanned "breakdown/problems". UK Website schedule shows periods out of service for all ships and Lofoten's current round trip is one of them.

        Apologies if everyone already knows this.

        Best Wishes,

        Richard
        Fair Winds & Weather,

        Richard

        TF 09/05; TF BGO-KKN-TOS/KH TOS-BGO 05/06(hit seamen's strike ); TF Xmas/New Year 12/06; MS 05/08; Lofoten 03/10; MS 03/11 TRD-KKN-BGO(broke ship ); MS 01/12 (Astronomy Voyage), LO 03/13 - changed to MS (Astronomy Voyage again!) as LO delayed after maintenance; LO 03/14 BGO-KKN-TRD

        Forthcoming: Lofoten 31/10/15 BGO-KKN-BGO

          Dear richws, I agree to your website information, in the German version also is no scheduled tour showed for this week.

          But compared to the printed catalog and its time schedule, Midnatsol should be out of route this week.
          Lofoten should run the whole year without break (because never needs maintenance).

          So it seems to be something inbetween - more or less half-planned...

              Our danish collegue Ships and Ferry forum has a solid coverage of Lofotens docking in Frederikshavn.

                Talfh, i know about the need of maintenance, but is interesting that she is always in schedule... It looks like they are working on that legend "never needs maintenance".

                Hope they are running her and Nordstjernen not too fast tired, as you feared in previous posts, so that we lovers of the old ships can enjoy them many more years.

                Thank you Sigve, for that link. Such a lot of new pictures for my screen saver....

                  Hurtigruten has decided that LO and NX should have 11 days out of route every year. NX will be out for 11 days in october
                  But LO and NX needs good crew to keep the ship in good condition, maybee i`ll be back on NX in october but you will never see me on LO

                    What is wrong with M/S "Lofoten"?

                        From an e-mail, I received a note that on a fellow Danish maritime forum often frequented by Norwegians, there was recently a thread created which contained images of a blue hulled Lofoten:

                        http://www.shipsforum.dk/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=5081

                        These images are really rare... would be awesome if we could find some more images from the year when Lofoten was blue.

                          ....aaaah i see, and then you can photoshop these France/Norway-winglets on the funnel to create your next most favourite Hurtigruten-steamer.

                            HOLY SWEET MARY!!!!!!!......, or something like that....
                            What in heavens name were they thinking of, or what stuff were they running on, when they painted this beautiful ship in that dredful colour?????
                            (Pictures are important documentation though, but never..., NEVER, must such a vessel ever be painted in that colour again, please!!!) .

                              I'm just reminding you that Harald Jarl/Andrea is (was?) very goodlooking in blue. I think it depends on which blue you use. Everybody can agree that Lofotens blue was not the best we've seen.

                                I don't know, it's not so inappropriate. It probably matches the colour of the captain's hands when he's out on those open bridge wings in Winter.

                                More seriously, I think it's supposed to be "VDS blue" to match the flag and the band on the funnel.
