    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

    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.

    My pleasure, as always :-) (And I agree)

    I think the VIKING SKY is a really beautiful vessel, BUT, and there is a big BUT, compared to Marco Polo, the Marco Polo clearly wins.

    The more time passing by, Marco Polo has become one of the truly last beauties.

    Thank you for sharing these ships with us (me).

    Thank you, Ralf. My pleasure.
    As I got ISPS access to the quays around, here are just a couple taken with my iPhone camera a few hours ago. Viking Sky moored at quay 8, Vestbase.
    The only noticeable exterior damage is the missing anchors.

    An excellent spot for the Pakarang view
