    We are, at least I am, VERY interested in seeing more (read a lot more) images from the Royal Viking Star, or any other ship of the RVL fleet!

      Interesting video of BLACK WATCH entering La Coruna bay in heavy swell (a little scary from 3:30 on!):

      And leaving the bay in better weather:

        Thank you so very much for sharing those clips and directing me to them.

        WAOW! Does she surf or what!!! You are right, the swell from 3:30 into the clip does indeed look quite dramatic. It's almost as if she is a tiny toy-boat in a bath tub! Incredible footage I would say.

          I think this was in Jan. 1987 with the Star leading the Sky into port.
          MR028 posted some nice pictures of this meeting in the old forum.

          Best regards,

          Yes indeed it was January 1987 when the Star & the Sky sailed into Sydney together - I was lucky enough to witness it:





          The Star was regularly based in Sydney in the 80's during the southern Summer; RV Sky was on her world cruise. They sailed into the harbour side by side, the down to their mooring and under the bridge line astern, due to highish winds.

            What an amazing shot!

            I wish I could have been there myself. What an amazing photo opportunity!

            I wonder if Harvey Lloyd documented this arrival... ?

              Well I've never seen any 'official' photos from it. It was covered well by the local media; there were numerous helicopters photographing the pair as they sailed down the harbour (unusually it was about 2.00pm) and it was on the local news that night.

                I have tried searching on the net for Harvey Lloyd, as I know he did a lot of PR-photography for Royal Viking Line at the end of 80's and the beginning of the 90's.

                He really did a lot of magic with his camera, and I recall him hanging out of aircrafts both in the south-American fjords and above Kristiansund (I have four of those images at home here).

                  Have you been to his website:http://www.harveylloyd.com/wordpress/

                  And there is this book featuring his photos:


                  http://www.amazon.com/Voyages-Romanc...6523667&sr=1-1

                  It features some of his RVL photography, although it very much is a destination-orientated publicity book for Carnival Corp.

                        There is a feature article in the November 2012 "Ships Monthly" on 75 years of Knud E. Hansen (naval architects for the original Royal Viking trio), with a great shot of Royal Viking Sea:

                                Here we at sea, I am unsure exactly when, sometime between 1973- 1976. One of the ships photographers took this photo of myself, I had a little more hair at that time.....
