    No doubt where that youtube user has been to find and lift images, without giving appropriate accreditation....

      And as you might expect, I totally agree with you.
      That said, it seems like this video is made out of great love for the company and the old days...., so I hope you are not TOO "angry"...

      (Too sad music for my ears, but other than that a ok nostalgic film).

        At first, a bit upset, yes... it's just irritating that some people just don't appreciate things being made available to them. Shouldn't be so hard to ask "may I" and then add a link to us, as a sign of appreciation.

        But, I guess, it'll blow over before the rain stops....

        Historically, a nice composition. I do miss Royal Viking Line and it's a great pity they are no longer sailing the seven seas anymore. Their logo, their product and their ships was as good as it was possible to make it.

        But.

        There is always a but(t).

        Crystal Cruises is today's modern version of Royal Viking Line, if not equal in unparalleled luxury cruising.

          I agree with you Jan-Olav, when I first saw the video last year I posted a comment "that it was a good video specially since he had used many of my photos", about 16 of them (I said it nicely) but he did not reply. I have posted some of my Royal Viking Star photos on another site but I think the youtuber got most of them from here. If you look at his profile and some of his answers to the comments he was a passenger on the early Royal Viking Line ships.

          I don't mind people using my photos if it is not for profit and it would be nice if they gave the appropriate accreditation.

          Cheers Frank

              I think she hit a freak wave... I do recall there was a very well-known story about this damage and if I'm not completely wrong, I think it took quite some time before the damage was repaired.

              Can't remember where, and when, but seem to recall Australia??

                The bow was damaged in September 1973 while we were crossing from Southampton to New York, and believe me when the wave hit the ship several alarm bells started ringing and those people who were not on the bridge were wondering what the hell was happening.

                Cheers Frank.

                    thijs,

                    The wave was a big one but we were in a big storm it was the remains of a hurricane, after the initial damage every time a wave came up to the damaged area the sea came in because the plates were not only bent there were also some cracks and holes, but the water ingress was not too bad. We were a day late arriving in New York and most of the passengers had been sea sick for a few days. As far as I remember Royal Viking Line refunded the cost of the Southampton – New York part of the cruise.

                    At the time it was a little scary until we found out the exact extent of the damage, some of the damage was repaired in New York i.e. the cracks/holes were welded closed and some strengthening was put in place but all the bent plates remained as they were until the next dry-docking.

                    Cheers Frank.
