    Sterkoder! - This is weird - I read your comment and yes, the post I referred to was #225 which was on the previous page - your last two photos in fact.
    So I logged on to say oops silly me, only to find that the post with the final photos is now at the top of the current page and is #226!
    Anyone else notice this?

    Thank you for your comment
    I take it you ment #225, but other than that, you're correct. She will be back...., three more times in 2018

    It came as a bit of a surprise to me to realise that AIDA ships had not visited your city before now!
    Love your photos, and I really do think that the cloudy rainy weather is more of a factor in my enthusiasm than a Kristiansund-blue sky might have been (even though the cruise guests may have preferred the latter! )

    It adds perspective, mood and subtlety to ship and background city in that 'pakarang view'. Another favourite of mine is #226/2 where the muted colours of this lighting actually emphasise similarities. I can't help smiling as I see that serpent eye looking oh so appreciatively at the yellow of the foreground buildings. It’s almost as though those lips might murmur "so nice here ...I'll be back"! Of course it goes without saying that you clicked at exactly the right instant in capturing that moment.

    Finally the attention-grabbing drama of skyscape, ship, and city, in that great goodbye, #226/3. Marvellous

    Wonderful pictures. You are right. Kristiansund is a wonderful scenery to take ship pictures. Such a huge variety of angles and perspectives

    A great looking harbor, I think. And in my opinion, good weather conditions for photography

    First time ever that AIDA Cruises visit Kristiansund, and they did it with their 203 meters long AIDAvita today, 23rd April 2018.
    Here are 19 of my 54 pictures from the arrival at 0700 and departure at 1600 hours

    This quay was until a few days ago an ISPS-restricted area with a high ugly green fence. The port authorities tore down the fence, opened up the quay and put benches and tables there for us to enjoy.

    AIDAvita built by Aker MTW in Germany and delivered in 2002. She cost $350 millions to build.

    Yes, I noticed that.
    Don't know how much work it is for you, but I've always considered your list and updates a bit more complete and not to forget early with the latest info.
    (I've always considered you more updated than the port authorities here).
    But as the Kristiansund Port Authorities cruise lists looks ok, and goes three years forward, I guess you don't need to update here no more.
    I also notice they say that their Facebook account will be updated with changes in the cruise traffic every time it's needed, as the changes happen, so I guess we (I) will have some sort of a "real time" cruise list on the port authorities Facebook-account, to put it that way.
    As I've said and pointed out several times, I'm forever thankful for what you do and have done. Thank you so much!!!

    How is it possible to make such a difficult to navigate web site..., Cunard? Huh...???

    Anyway. I have Queen Victoria in at 08:00 on the 28th May and departing at 18:00 local.

    there are many things happening at work just now...., I might be alone from 1st May. Really hope for a quiet day on the 28th though.

    According to Cunard, May 28 in K'sund: http://www.cunard.co.uk/cruise-searc...nd-excursions/

    Haugesund is an unusual choice for a big boat like this one. Not a bad place to visit though.

    Has there been a slight change in the arrival day of Queen Victoria, or is it me that messed up the dates?

    I previously noted that Queen Victoria will be there on May 29th, but from the website of the port, I see she will arrive on the 28th of May.

    Doesn't really matter which day, because I'm on leave that time and will most likely make my way to Kristiansund that day. It's however important to go travelling the CORRECT day.

    I have thought about it; will I ever see the new explorer hurtigrute ships in Kristiansund. You gave me a positive answer. Great! :-)
