    Awesome images Sterkoder---- as Lady C mentioned, she canceled her visit to Trondheim but instead we got Marco Polo a few days later (so did you).

    I'm glad you got to capture the Azores---- she might not have too many more years ahead of her, when looking at the scrapping of almost anything classical.

      when looking at the scrapping of almost anything classical.
      That's exactly why I took a day off work last fall to experience and enjoy FUNCHAL live. We might be the last generation to see such clasic ships in operation.
      In the future, there will be museums, of course...., but look to FINMARKEN, brought ashore in Stokmarknes..., not fun at all.

        What to do with old ocean liners.... such as for example the United States, Queen Mary, the Rotterdam, the QE2.... but they forgot the one tied up in Oman as hotel ship, the Veronica.

            Don't know if it has been posted before, but for you who want to see the AZORES during summer season 2016, look for the ASTORIA.
            The AZOREs owner Cruise and Maritime Voyages in Portugal will let the French charter operator Rivages du Monde use the ship in 2016, under its new name, ASTORIA :-)

              Makes you wonder what difference a name makes. I get the thing about 'Astor' and 'Astoria', but would 'Astor' and 'Azores' really have sold fewer cabins? I understand the importance of branding with some names - i.e. 'Queen' anything, Oriana, Rotterdam that sort of thing, but can't really get my mind around it for other names. I find the whole field of marketing and the related psychology fascinating. https://www.cruiseandmaritime.com/ship/astoria

              This ship has really got a long list of names (and a distinguished career):
              1946: Stockholm.
              1960: Völkerfreundschaft.
              1985: Volker.
              1986: Fridtjof Nansen.
              1993: Italia I
              1994: Italia Prima.
              1998: Valtur Prima.
              2002: Caribe.
              2005: Athena.
              2013: Azores.
              2016: Astoria.
              And I doubt if that is the last one....

              Indeed - and in some ways a change after the front end of her was somewhat rearranged in 1956 was inevitable!! She has got an amazing history. More here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MV_Azores

                Here is a real veteran that has not featured here on CVF before, the SS Columbia of 1902: http://gcaptain.com/ship-photos-of-t...2#.VekO4vmeDRY

                    Hindholmen has rounded 100 years of age and is still going strong: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/soere/2016...n-13087060.ece

                    There is also a link to an article about a piece if music for semi-diesel ships whistle and percussion "instruments" found on board Hindholmen.

                      Nice vessel - I don't think I've heard about her before. We don't have many ships of that age in Norway, or world-wide.

                        Should be easy to solve the "mystery" around this one since the name (Solfrid) and home port (Hitra) is known:

                        But I was not able to find any info. Anybody else who can help?

                          This former fishing vessel was built in 1978. Operated in Finnmark with registration F 42 M (M = Maasoy).

                          Now operated as a tour boat and for fish expeditions around Aalesund. From Norsk Skipsfart Fourum:
                          "Havstar" (LM6492). Båten ble bygget i 1978 og tilhørte Jens Jensen i Måsøy kommune hvor den seilte med fiskeriregistreringsmerke F-42-M til den ble solgt i 2002. I 2005 ble den unntatt fra kondemnering og har tinglyst avtale om bevaring etter antikvariske retningslinjer, og nå hører den hjemme i Ålesund hos 'Støtteforeningen for MS Havstar'. Fra 2002 til 2005 tilhørte den trolig Giskefisk AS i Ålesund med registrering M-133-A.
                          Beautifully restored and well maintained by the look of it:

                            found this on what seems to be the same vessel:

                              Another veteran boat seen in Aalesund recently.
                              This one may be well known to some here on CVF:










                              In need of more tender loving care. Work in progress by the look of things, though.
