    Here are two further links to pages about the traditional Hurtigruten ships, one in Swedish, one in German. But the pictures and most information are understandable...
    Oh yes, I will certainly spend some enjoyable hours going through these threads. I have been following some of the hurtigruten threads - mainly 'Fram', but i do love these older vessels. I like what i call 'cosy' ships, and these certainly fit that description. And thank you for the links you have provided, I will also enjoy looking through those!

                  Congratulation SEAGULL!!, you made it. Even Hurtigruten recognized your contribution to their cause and never wavering enthusiasm. You will probably feature on next years calender.
                  Hope you enjoy your trip, which is something I have been talking about for years, but never got around to do.

                    So....., that's our 'Seagull'...
                    Why does it seem that I'm the only one who didn't know that...? Something I've missed reading...?

                    Nevertheless, you seem to enjoy yourself and to be on top of the world, as we might say...
                    Have a further safe trip!!

                      Well done Ralf, certainly a great catch on the webcam!

                      But I want to know just how long Seagull had been hanging around that camera?, I have visions of her wandering around the ship, but making sure her route took her past the webcam every other lap!

                      Im sure Seagull will be pleased to see that she was caught red-handed in the act of enjoying herself aboard Lofoten.

                          In Trondheim, Lofoten was meeting Nordstjernen again this morning.

                            It’s prize giving time! Ralf, you are amazing – what a catch! I am so pleased. Definitely got the Seagull Stalking Award.

                            ABSOLUTE EXCELLENT FANTASTIC as HurtigruteMartin said!
                            And SteveB, you are right, I was hanging about that place all morning unless absolutely needing to see the view from the other side or forward. That webcam doesn’t refresh very frequently. And I was not put off by it being the windy side – as you see from my windswept appearance!

                            I do prefer the deck arrangement on NX as it’s very quick to take up a position with a different view – to quickly photograph a passing ship for example. Whereas on LO, even if one is familiar with the ship, you do have to pause sometimes to work out the quickest way to get somewhere else, and how to avoid a short cut through the dining room during mealtimes and so on.

                              Maybe you did miss reading it way back in May on Nordstjernens’s thread:
                              http://www.captainsvoyage-forum.com/...&postcount=107
                              Just couldn’t resist fitting in the two old ladies on the one trip in summer! But I was determined to get back to Copenhagen to meet ehp and then that linked up with other commitments. I flew on to Heathrow and have been some days in the south of England for a conference and gave a lecture. This was more successful than it probably should have been given rather a lack of preparation! Anyway, I only just got back home yesterday, and am busy catching up . . .


                              So Sterkoder, I didn’t personally contact you right before my trip because, well you know the northbound timetable, Kristiansund at 01:45 seemed probably past your bedtime and in the event you would have had to wait up considerably later –but that’s another story which should probably be saved for a fuller written up trip report.

                                Thank you for that award, Seagull. I have to leave for a business trip for the rest of the week and expect that i will have to reserve a lot of time for reading your reports during the next weekend...
