    Sounds like the perfect excursion to me.

    Your post has been saved to my notes for a possible future attempt at going there myself: you never know, but I would really like to make such a visit, provided I have the perfect guide to bring along!

      Two new ferries for Norled to be built and completed at Romantow Shipyard in Poland:
      https://sysla.no/maritim/norled-best...ger-fra-polen/

      Note the "humped" car deck, which is a new feature. Here is an explanation:
      From both ends, the deck has a small incline Underneath this "hump" they can accommodate both the pax lounge and the crew cabins. Thus the lounge is at the same level as the car deck on a traditional ferry.

      "Here's a big, bright and nice lounge," says Technical Director Sigvald Breivik in Norled.

      From both ends of the ferry there shall be flat and wide passage to the lounge. From the middle of the deck it becomes a staircase. Breivik emphasizes that the passages will be wide for ease of pax traffic, baby carriages and wheel chairs.

      And this is perhaps the first ferry with such a solution with fun on the picture deck.

      "We have not seen this before, Breivik wins in Norled. He thinks there are several advantages to doing so.

      "In this way we can make the ferries as traffic-efficient as possible, with large-and wide car deck, without obstacles common on traditional ferries. And then we have avoided the elevator.
      These ferries also have a small windage area, which improve manoeuvrability in high wind and high energy efficiency.

        Interesting design and lay-out of the car main deck. From the drawing, it seems like there is an up- /downhill deck, without any shelter deck on the side. The design is similar to K, with the exception of the crew deck, and the "rampedekk (shelter deck).

              It is now completed, Rolls Royce Commercial Marine is now part of Kongsberg Group:
              https://www.rolls-royce.com/media/pr...-business.aspx
              That includes the ship design and marine equipment part in Norway, Sweden, Finland and around the world, but not Bergen Diesel and MTU engines.

              Here is the rational behind this acquisition by Kongsberg:

                      Do you think they would actually notice if the ship never left port?

                        Well they have to sail.
                        Otherwise is every passinger claiming there money back.
                        They have payed for a cruise, not a floating hotel near the waterside.
                        So it have to sail for at least 1 mile out of port

                        Ivy, you are so right. My feeling is, that most passengers, which are attracted by those ships, are not interested in exploring the world. All they want is fun. So why is it necessary to ship them aroung using a lot of unnecessary energy?

                        Absolutely Ralf. You and I and members of CVF generally, are explorers first and foremost. Not that I've done much in that way for a long time, I'm afraid! But my idea of a holiday is as far removed from the offerings of Global Dream as can be.
