    Re: ::: Lofoten :::

    Thanks both for those comments.

    Polar: Yes, I see what you mean - that NRK video is a good advertisement for the new cargo deck / door / lift arrangement!!

    Sterkoder: Re #513 looking like a postcard, thanks. If only it hadn't been a day with that flat white Finnmarken sky - I suppose a blue backdrop is a bit of a cliche, but the mast / antennas wouldn't have disappeared into the background. I'll have to copy the sky from your #517 and paste it in!!
    Cheers,

    Mark.

      Re: ::: Lofoten :::

      1200 Norwegian time on the 8th November - Lofoten and Midnatsol both in Honningsvåg at the same time - quite unusual. Lofoten seems to have turned at Kjøllefjord yesterday - bit rough up there. Looks like the southbound KH skipped H'våg today on the AIS?

      An excellent view from the superb http://www.nordkapp.tv

      Can only just see Lofoten over the top of the buildings!

          Found the complete set - not ideal for screen viewing but quite fun, even if not as much as Polar's video!!

            That's interesting. I wonder if we ever going to see that again on a Hurtigruten ship?

              Lofoten spent more than a day in Honningsvag. No she is heading towards Kirkenes, followed by Vesteralen. I wonder, what caused the stop. According to Hurtigrutens homepage they have no delay...

                'Full Storm' in West Finnmark on Monday. The live stream from H'våg harbour looked quite interesting!!

                Post 519 shows M'natsol and Lofoten both in H'våg.

                Lofoten now going southbound (back on schedule having skipped everything beyond Kjøllefjord and come back to H'våg).

                Midnatsol in Kirkenes, and Vesterålen on her way northbound!! All on the AIS at the moment.

                  Some of you might been waiting for pictures of our rendez-vous with Lofoten in Rørvik for couple of weeks ago?
                  I think that you won't be disappointed.

                    The ship is so moodful, so I just show you almost all pictures I've got. Somebody else has probably more knowledge to fill out some describing text.

                    It's just splendid.

                      View from the SB bridge wing.


                      And of course the bridge itself.




                      If I just stick my head into a hatch on deck I actually can see the motor.


                      It has a genuine smell of oil and lubricants.

                          The CVF Expedition members are exploring, or perhaps discovering something on Lofotens foredeck.


                          The well known ice bear outside the dining room.


                          The cafeteria.




                          Yes, it's very much real wood.

                            The interiour design is actually pretty great. Just look at this marvellous sofa and mirrors.


                            Or at this one? Just gather some friends around the table and you won't miss anything.

                              SB looking forward.

                                The door to the Hospital.


                                And a rather steamy kitchen.


                                Some additional exterior studies.






                                And it's time to say farewell.
