    Thank you so much for opening this thread... it was about time we opened a thread for this vessel also...

    We had a few posts on the old board as well, about Rogaland:

    M|S Rogaland of Stavanger - a former steamship.

        Beautiful creature this vessel!!! Don't care much for the "plastic tent" on the stern deck, but I guess comfortable accommodation for guests are a necessity today....
        This is one of the visiting vessels during the "Fjordsteam 2010" in Florø 4th-8th August.

          Great captures Gaelsail!

          I love that the images shows the ship in ... how should I put it... ehmmm... without any modern buildings in the background. It's almost like the images could have been taken when she was in service at the beginning of her career, and not taken in 2010!

          She looks very striking and is indeed a very beautiful veteran!

            I didn't realize that there is a special thread for M/S Rogaland on CVF.
            I posted some pictures of this ship taken in Stavanger in September 2011 earlier in the Veteran ships and Boats thread, but it wouldn't harm to repeat them here:

              This old ship is so beautiful. It worked like a magnet on me when I spoted it in Stavanger.. I went on autopilot towards it.







              It's history..

                Nice images, Carina!!

                Imagine me, when we drove to Kristiansand and Tall Ships Race 2010 and had a night stop in Bergen.
                After settling in our room, I had to park the car on a remote parking space, where I discovered that just 200 meters from the hotel were steamers "Stord I", "Granvin", "Stavenes" and an old 'fjordbuss' moored!
                I went bananas with my camera, and y'all can watch the images in own threads (ship specific).

                I know so well how you felt when spotting "Rogaland"

                  Wonderful images of Rogaland...

                  So much nostalgia, so much history, and how wonderful is it actually that some people has taken it upon themselves to maintain and run such veterans....

                        That is very good news indeed.... ! Imagine, that we in 2014 still have such an old and beautiful looking vessel around - it's an achievement to be proud of!:

                          From a couple of weeks ago, Rogaland looking stunning on the berth in Stavanger. Choppy and windy, but blue sky.

                          The curve of the rail around the side of the quay gives a bit of an odd effect.





                          Cheers,

                          Mark.
