    Four ex. Royal Viking vessels in Kr-sund in the summer of '09

    As I wrote in another thread here, Kristiansund will be visited by many really nice ships this summer of 2009.
    It just dawned on me right now that we in fact are being visited by all of the former Royal Viking ships, except R V Queen.
    We got Boudicca (ex. RV Sky) 23rd June, Black Watch (ex. RV Star) 8th July,
    Prinsedam (ex. RV Sun) 22nd July and Albatros (ex. RV Sea) 23rd August.

    That'll be something to look forward too....

    That should be an interesting collection of photographs, especially taken from the same spot...

      Hahaha...., yes...., I must try to make at least one picture from the same spot.
      But otherwise, I will be driving around to the different spotterplaces like a ball in a pinballmachine....
      I don't know when they will leave, and in the case of "Boudicca", "Black Watch" and "Prinsedam" which will be here on regular week-days, I'm at work until 4:00-4:15 PM and I suspect (and hope) they will be here until 6:00 PM in the evening.
      Of course, if they leave at 4:00 or 5:00 PM, I wouldn't get to take all the pictures I plan to take.
      But, let's wait and see...

            Oh......, what can I say....!!!????!! I'm known to be rather honest, so I'll go on and tell you I didn't see this post until now...

            The "Albatros" will arive on a sunday, and she will be docked from 7:00AM to 6:00PM, so I'll got plenty of time to come up with some good pictures.

            The trick part will be to find someone who can take a great picture of me, the shirt and ship in one frame...., someone who hold and operate a camera like a camera and not like it was a hot potato...

            EDIT: And one more thing, 'Rvl Sea Crew' (here we got three options: 1. I didn't pay attention, 2. I never read the posts I should have or 3. I'm so old I forgot); as you were a crewmember on board RV Sea (Albatros), what exactly was your job on the ship...?
            (Sorry for asking if you allready told us, but you know right now I got "thousand things" in my head. Some guy designing an overhaul of a '63 Chevy Nova on Discovery Channel, a daughter eager to drag me out of the sofa, things I should have done but are not both home and at job, a coffeemug tilting in the kitchen....

                Shirts??
                'Shirt' is a secret code between me and 'Rvl Sea Crew'.

                You know, basicly I'm a "sleeping" monster, and whenever I hear the word 'shirt'..., I go into action.

                Like your idea there, about getting CV polo-shirts or t-shirts...

                      I'm way ahead of you all with this - I already got a T-shirt made with my avatar photo and the word seagull - thought it would come in useful to identify me on a future CaptainsVoyage anniversary cruise.
                      (Well, this was before pakarang thought up that self-portrait photo competition subject. Now why didn’t I go for a bit of lateral thinking and just enter a seagull photo for that – feathered variety!!)

                        The special "Shirt" will not arrive before Albatros arrives....

                        I was Cruise Consultant aboard RV Sea 1982-1984, then on to San Francisco untill the "move" to Florida.

                            Now I REALLY suspect one or both of you for being in a spy organization--you're beginning to TALK like them!!!!!
