    Certainly a windy day, on a ship built especially for this kind of weather.

    A delight! This classic ship design is so elegant! She looks way faster than all the other ships. Thank you for posting!

    I hope she will have a fruitful future, and will not end up like her other unfortunate sisters of her time.

    Nordlys: sank under tow to scrapping
    Polarlys: scrapped in Panama
    Nordnorge: scrapped at Alang Beach, India
    Kong Olav: scrapped at location, Ranong, Thailand

    Finnmarken: on land at Stokmarknes
    Lofoten: still going strong
    Nordstjernen: still going strong
    Ragnvald Jarl: still going strong, for the moment
    Harald Jarl: still going very strong

    Did I forget one?

    I hope that when it is time to retire her, she is not dumped on a shore the way the old Finnmarken was. It just looks silly.

    That image is brilliant, the lights escaping from her windows are so inviting in times of darkness. Imagine sitting on board there, with a great book, a generous glass of red wine and hearing the faint noise of the engine in the background. Those are experiences that will not be the same on a new ship.

    Beautiful photos of a beautiful vessel. Thank you DS and Bengt. A bit over a fortnight to go, and I hope to be landing in Bergen.

    Wow, Bengt. Such an appetizer! Look at the warm lights in the Panorama Salong! This is the place to be now (after waving to Bengt and the cormorants from the starbord bridge wing, of course!)

    I thought I should share these images from 2016, of a ship that appears to be incredibly popular amongst many.

    The images are dated JUNE 20th 2016:
