    Here's something "made" out of her hull, put up for sale at the norwegian site finn.no.
    This guy got someone to cut the names out of her hull and his putting them up for sale to anyone willing to pay NOK 150.000,-.
    (Why do I suddenly get sick and feel the need to throw up??)
    I hope no one with a genuine feeling for the old ship buys these plates anyway.

    (Am I crazy, or the only one feeling that this is something like stealing the wallet from a dead person...?)

        I would love seeing these plates in the Norwegian Maritime Museum, or preserved for many to see... but I do not have the incredibly high sum floating around, not in Norway nor any other offshore account....

          The one pic where he stands with his foot on the plates reminds me of pictures by hunters standing on the dead animals they killed :-(

          That on pic where we can see half of the blue lady remaining really reminded me of how horrible I felt each time I discovered new pics from Alang. It was a horrible time, not that it would be better now that she is gone :-(

              I feel the same, anything to make a quick buck, but in this case it's not been that quick, 2 years on and it looks like only one of the bow name plates have been sold.

              I agree, all of these should be in various maritime museums, alongside a detailed history of the famous and much loved liner.

                Totally agree! Norwegian Maritime Museum at Oslo... would love to see it on the wall behind their great model of the SS Norway...

                I would love to travel to Oslo, touch the plate... take a photo... shed a few tears...

                      SS NORWAY Luggage Tags

                      How many different styles were there? I have a few.
                      sigpicI will never forget the lovely grand SS NORWAY.
                      Past Cruises on her: August 22, 1992. June 4, 1994, April 7, 2002.
                      Nearly had our fourth cruise, it was set for November 7, 2003...
                      the boiler room disaster of May 4, 2003 took her out of service.
                      We ended up on the NORWEGIAN WIND, not the same as the SS NORWAY

                          I'll scan them and post them here after some storms move out from here. I can't wait to see what kind of luggage tags you have.

                            Here is one set of tags, it doesn't say SS NORWAY on it, but it did take 2 piers to get the passengers on and off her. BTW, Captain, I have something of yours on here...I guess you wondered where it went to...I have it.

                                Was the position sheet something for the log book or was it for making an announcement to the passengers?
