    Which ships are these???
    I wonder, I wonder... if this could be two ships of the Nordenfjeldskes Damskipsselskap... NFDS, Trondheim. Some of their ships were during the summer months painted white and used in toursit traffic along the Norwegian coast and to Spitzbergen. I do not have a really good image right in front of me, but the name Ragnvald Jarl pops into my mind.

      They look like sister ships and fairly typical of the ships used in Hurtigruten in the early 1900s.
      Unless somebody has a different opinion, I'll say that is likely the correct answer.

        OK, no protest or contrary proposal, so I'll post one more unknown ship.
        This one also in Geiranger, in 1935:

            Hmmm... a bit tricky for me.

            In the meanwhile, we have recieved a request by e-mail... does anyone have any information that we can provide?

            Can you inform me where Leanja IMO 6618005 is today?

            I have been monitor this vessel since it where in Vestmannaeyjar / Iceland, there it was owned by my family and my father was also captian on this vessel.

            Therefore I want to know where it is today.

            I do know at this vessel did go to Grenaa in DK, but it was not scrapped there.

              The man seeking information would be very thankful if anyone could shed any light on his request.

                          I have the answer to this question.
                          The vessel is the Lamport & Holts (Blue Star)Liner T.S.S. Vandyck":
                          Built: Workman Clarke & Co. Ltd., Belfast
                          Dimensions: 510.6 x 64.3 x 39.3 feet
                          Tonnage: Gross: 13233 Net: 7960
                          Propulsion: Twin Screw Steam Turbine, 7000 shp, 14 kts
                          Type: Passenger/Cargo Liner
                          Passengers: 300 1st Class, 150 2nd Class & 230 3rd Class
                          Launched: 24/2/1921 for the Liverpool, Brazil & River Plate S.N. Co. Ltd
                          Laid up: 1929 in the River Blackwater
                          Converted: 1932 for cruising with the hull repainted white
                          Converted: 1939 to armed merchant cruiser and renamed HMS Vandyck
                          Lost: to enemy bombing 10/6/1940 off the Norwegian coast. (Narvik)
                          Sister ship: Voltaire 2

                          After the tragic loss of the Vestris (12th November 1928) some 300 miles off Hampton Roads, with the loss of 112 passenger and crew and the depression increasing. She was laid up in the River Blackwater in 1929. Brought out of lay up in the spring of 1932, she sailed on a series of cruises from Southampton and Liverpool. These proved extremely successful that she was specially fitted out for this purpose and the hulls painted white as shown in the postcard above. She was employed cruising to just before the outbreak of World War II, cruising to the Mediterranean, Atlantic Islands, West Africa, West Indies, Norwegian Fjords and Baltic.
                          Another picture found on the web: http://www.bluestarline.org/lamports/vandyck3.html

                          This must be after conversion to Cruise Ship, since the aft deck looks distinctly different:

                          The text under this picture says; "Departing from Glasgow", but I'm just wondering???:

                            Time to test the knowledge of old liners among the CVF members again.

                            Another ship arriving Geiranger - 1935:


                            Which ship is this.

                            Comment


                              That is the Lafayette of the French Line built in 1930. She was burnt out in Le Havre in 1938.

                                That is correct Thaddeus, and your picture show clearly that she was visiting Geiranger, probably more than once.

                                Here is another one from Geiranger. This one from unknown year:
