    The dining room.


    Always looking so nice and ready for the next meal.


    The famous chair-chains.

      The cafeteria.

      There's always something going on here, in a nice relaxed tempo of course.


      And here you can buy the postcard of the ship, taken by CVF member Kim Viktor. How the photo ended up on that card is a other story.

        Thanks Tommi for the nice pictures.

        I was not in cabin 102 but 302 has exactly the same time of furnishing obviously, so the details on your photos bring back nice memories to me

        Is cabin 102 quiet ? It seemed so when I had a stroll around the ship..

        I can see a little uncompability with the cabin key.
        I was surprised too, being accustomed to modern ships so far ... I did not see the real-old key inside the envelope at the beginning and I went to the reception to say that the key did not fit

        Note the coat hangers in the corners, a unique feature today on Hurtigruten.
        I guess it is very handy if your cabin does not have a close access to the outside decks! Just in case there is a superb light outside when you are eating or something...

        And a storage locker below your bed.
        My storage locker did not lock properly so I had to put something in front of it so that at night I would not be disturbed by the noise of it in the event of high sea ... But it was handy!

        I like your black and white photo of lounge. When I look at the photos, it reminds me that everything is so clean and tidy in there ...

          Very nice “documentation” Tommi, but as always with you many images that go way beyond that, from the simplest light fitting to the well-chosen b/w.

          I’ve been more aboard LF as day passenger, and the only cabin I’ve inhabited is the miniscule 122, so your 102 seems really spacious to me!

          Oh and PanjiS…I haven’t been replying to your recent cabin queries on various ships, and that is simply because I am the kind of person not much bothered my noise considerations. I can’t even remember how noisy or otherwise 122 was!

            Look at these detail pictures!! Great and so good to see the rooms in detail you mostly don't have a close look to. This B/W picture is a piece of art and shows how authentic the scenery on Lofoten is today! I think details like the coat hangers are exactly what gives you this "being at home" feeling. You are not a passenger, you are actually living there and can do the daily routines, like at home.

              This is so true! Exactly the feeling I am when I'm on board.
              Great pictures Tommi, thank you for sharing them.

                Lofoten is definetely more a home than any other Hurtigrute today, it's easy to find a corner for yourself, or a other corner with your friends. The ship is not perfect in any way, but it still is a very nice total experience. I also like the small scale where everything is located just some steps away. Boarding Finnmarken in Tromsø felt like stepping into a giant hotel.
                Now back to Lofoten!

                  The rear saloon has nice sofas but is actually really noise compared to many boats.


                  And the aft staircase is even worse. It seems like this area has been refurbished a couple of years ago, the wall panels were a bit different compared to the rest of the ship.

                    The saloon on the upper deck.

                    Nighttime.






                    Yet another variant of aircondition knobs. I think there are at least three different types in the public spaces.

                        Entrance, steer board side.


                        Details of the step inside. Or does this part have a special nautical name? Very typical in old ships.


                        The ladder is a bit worn out. These ladders are actually very nice and practical to walk in.


                        Rail details.

                            I wonder if this sofa actually is 49 years old?

                            It's not hard to be near the sea on Lofoten.

                                It looks very cozy! Haha the picture with the polar bear is a bit scary. Thanks for these amazing pictures!
