    Suppose you all know, but 2015 saw the last of BOUDICCA as an all white ship. Colour changed to grey/blue-ish hull with a red bow to stern line. (Photo on Facebook, but I'm not able to load FB to my job pc).

    BOUDICCA has been a frequent visitor to Kristiansund, but now..., in her new look, she's not booked for 2016 neither 2017 to call my home town (so far).

      Puh...., finally got a picture, unknown photographer. Got it via the group 'Sjøfolk i utenriksfart' on FB, in a posting by Mr. Jon Almås

        I like it ----- kind of..... I mean, I would have preferred SS Norway blue, but then again, it makes me think of the casino ships of south east Asia.

        I guess I will be fully ready to give my verdict when I see it with my own eyes....

          My initial thought was, wow..., she looks like a bus from our former local bus company here in Kristiansund

            Exactly the same colours that Jotunheimen/Valdresruten Bilselskap (JVB) had for their buses for many decades. Here it is in a somewhat newer version. It can hardly be a compliment to Fred Olsen Cruise Lines that their ships look like some old norwegian bus after their redecoration? Can it?

              Heard now that Fred. Olsen Lines will repaint all of their white "swans" to this darker livery due to harbour environment rules around the globe.

              Port Authorities and environmental laws will prohibit the use of chemicals/soap to wash the white ship hulls when they are moored to get rid of markings from rust and quay fenders and such.

              Therefore the darker colour...., or so I've just heard :-)

                That sounds very much like a good reason, I have myself been a Chief Officer in charge of keeping a white shipside for some years, and it's an eternal battle. A lot more soap and paint will have to be applied in order to keep it white, as opposed to a darker color. Therefore, also an economical aspect as well as the environmental aspect.
