Due to the MS Richard With incident, Hurtigruten
will take MS Nordlys out of lay and into
Hurtigruten service from Bergen on the January 29th.
Guests previously booked on MS Richard With will be
transferred to MS Nordlys, which is the sistership
of MS Richard With. Hurtigruten will with this
change be able to offer an equally good product and
service level as before the MS Richard With
For me this is astonishing, too, because there were news that the consumption of electric power is incredibly high, while she is waiting there. So in my opinion all systems were running and it should not be so much preparation. Maybe some of our ship specialists are able to tell us something.
Naturally, storing and filling up the ship with fresh food is the first thing that comes to mind, thereafter there are numerous checks of water pipes and flushing toilets, check of main engines and auxiliary engines...
It's very easy to destroy important systems when a ship is laid up improperly, especially when the ship starts getting under way again.
Then, there is also the question of crewing the vessel as well...
I'm quite sure there are many more items also on the list.
