    Thank you for the photos. For the past 6 weeks I have been keeping track of cruise ships around the world on Cruise Mapper and where they are going during the COVID crisis.

    Brand new car ferry SMØLA to the left and as we see, even though VIKING SEA is a middle to big cruise ship, the nature is bigger..., to put it that way. The Sterkoder hall is 33 meters high.

    Final picture..., I promise

    VIKING SEA arrived Kristiansund Sunday 12. April 2020 at 11:00 local time for a three months covid-19 "hot" layup.
    The ship company rent this place at the old Sterkoder ship yard through to the end of July.
    Here are a few of my 40+ pictures from my Pentax K-1 II. First lot with the 150-450mm and the last three with the 28-105mm.

    VIKING SEA passes a land tongue called Ormetunga (tongue of a worm) and she's now 1,58 kilometers from my camera (Note the guy on land there, hopefully with a very wide lense)

    We have to have the 'Pakarang view'

    Wanted to try this in b/w

    The red seahouse to the right there is a popular photography motif among people walking around in that area, but we have never seen that house in the same frame as a cruise ship. Now we have.

    I'd love to welcome Black Watch back to Trondheim any time: never get tired looking at a Royal Viking.

    As is the same over here, every weekend again the same vessels.

    It's like something is on 'repeat' in this city when it comes to cruise calls, but here we go again, with BLACK WATCH today

    I may drop the ball(s) here, but I kind of like her design... I think she is actually quite cute. I can't really explain, but I think she is not that bad at all.... I guess taste is an independent thing.

    These huge ships are boringly ugly.

    Agree. It seems like the ship engineers and designers don't care much for what's above the Plimsoll mark.

    Very nice pictures, but what a boring ship design?! She don't seem to have much outer decks either?

    Today, we had a movie star moored in Kristiansund.
    A movie star, you say? Yes, the SEVEN SEAS NAVIGATOR had a major role as a location in the movie 'After the Sunset' (2004), with Pierce Brosnan, Woody Harrelson and Salma Hayek (among others).

    The SEVEN SEAS NAVIGATOR (without the ugly duck-tail in 2004) was scheduled to arrive at 08 AM today, but due to an emergency on board (someone getting sick), they had to speed up and so they sailed into the harbor at around 10 PM last night.
    Other than that, all seemed to go well and she left for new destinations at 3 PM.

    A bit further west from the hotel, it's possible to take pictures through a privately owned garden

    From the roof of the AMFI Storkaia shopping mall, you can see the Thon Hotell Innlandet on the other side of the harbor there, just above the ship bow

    The bridge

    Main mast with the Norwegian and company flag. (All three radars turned around about two hours before scheduled departure. Normally they warm up half an hour before, or...?)

    Had to take a photo with a sundbåt too, as always

    She is such a beauty, and personally, I think her current hull fits her way better than the all-white hull. She looks so dignified and distinguished like this. Great colour combination!

    Thanks for sharing these images of such a historic vessel.

    This one, has really been around the world so many times. I especially remember her as the Westward under NCL house-flag.

    Last time we had BLACK WATCH here in Kristiansund was back in July 2016.
    Then she was all white, so today, 17. June, we saw her for the first time with the blue-ish hull here. She arrived 12:30 local time and left 19:30.
    When at work, these are the two pictures I managed to get.
