  • That new night time photo of Lofoten is so moody and inviting.... the lights from the ships "windows" kind of draws me on board and makes me wish I was there.

    Despite the lack of light illuminating the ship, there is no doubt which ship it is. Wonderful once again! Naturally.

        The round passengers received as replacement a night trip on the North Cape with amazing Northern Light views. So it was reported in the German forum.
        As always, there are passengers watching the scenery on the bridge wings. Thank you for posting, Bengt.

        Great that they got this replacement when the weather turned out to be so bad.

          Because i was searching for information about the Trollfjord accident in Risøyhamn, i read some comments in the German hurtigforum about her trip. It was rather rough in the Barent Sea. She had to leave out Mehamn, Berlevag and Vadsø northbound because of strong wind and heavy seas. Southbound she had to leave out Batsfjord. She had up to 3 hours delay, but meanwhile she seems to be in schedule, approaching Risøyhamn.

          There are some nice rough ride shots of the Trollfjord on Lofotens facebook page, taken from Lofoten when they met north of Tromsø.

          I love the rough seas as filmed by Asgeir Larsen on Facebook. That is what going to sea means to me.

      • "Lofoten" north Tromsø strait tonight in light rain.

          • Absolutely wonderful image from Tromsø as usual. I truly love the photographs you have shared over the years, and I'm truly sad to hear you are leaving.

              After some re-thinking and awaiting some new photo equipment I will still be joining this forum and post pictures in the future

          • I don't suppose Bengt will see this, but I'll write it anyway. His photography has always seemed a marvel to me and an inspiration. Tromsø already feels farther away than it did before, and virtually following my favourite ships there less complete without images like this ...Lofoten’s deck lights the colour of the pale gold sea.

              So very very delighted to see you here Bengt I'd been concerned something here might have upset you, or perhaps you hadn't been well. Take your time and enjoy choosing your new gear.

              Everything is just fine with me, I was just a bit uncertain after the equipment was sold, but now I'm on track again

          • Dear Grindøya... so glad that you are still around - you have no idea what an inspiration you have been for me up through the years!

            Selling camera seems like a scary affair to me, even though I have been toying with the idea myself a lot the past year. A colleague of mine, also a captain on same ship, strongly discouraged me from een thinking those ways. I'm not there yet - and will hopefully never arrive there.

              ​Thank you. Those words were like music in my ears.
              Keep us informed of what's going on in and around Trømsø.
              Especially now when Hurtigruta wants to move its arrival point.

                Thank you for your kind comments, Oistein

                We will see how developments between Tromsø Harbor / Tromsø municipality and Hurtigruten take place in the near future

                It would be a shame if the express route should disappear from the cityscape
                But I think that they will come to a common position regarding harbor fees, although they do not currently agree with this question

                When the new Prostneset port terminal is ready for use in February 2018 (and it will be a nice one) I think that the conflict between the parties has gone

                But in the opposite case, the express route will call its own new dock in Eidkjosen on Kvaløya and she will disappear from Tromsø Strait and the cityscape

            • Interesting discussion about the future of "hurtigruten" as we know it. I persoanlly think there will be a lot of changes in so many levels in the years to come, and especially during the new tender periode.

              I have no information other than my own opinions and speculations, but in deep respect to the operators today and in the future, I will not share any on a public platform.

                There is no doubt that it will be exciting to see who puts a bid on Riksvei 1 in the next period.
                Then we just have to wait to see what's going on in the future.
