    How dare they skip on Trondheim on that cruise? LOL..... perhaps another ship, another time.

    Oouuff!! I expect this also in a couple of days from and to Hamburg. Will this be a replacement for the classic roundtrip? Let me think about it...
    And for you a short and comfortable route to Honningsvag? I guess, not hurtig enough?!

    Good point, Ralf.

    I agree with you that it's going to be though for Havila in the beginning. I think they will eventually be doing well, but it's going to be though for everyone nonetheless.

    Their plans of operating the ships parallel to the Havila fleet is also a clear declaration of war to them. Havila is going to have a very difficult start. First they will never ever have the ships ready in time and then they will have to market their trips at the same dates against a long experienced organisation. Phoo!!

    So, if I read this correctly, the ships will be renamed as follows:

    Trollfjord ---> Maud

    Midnatsol ---> Eirik Raude

    Finnmarken ---> Otto Sverdrup

    I do understand WHY they are doing it, and I think its a great idea. At the same time, I feel sad at loosing these traditional names from the coast.... but, as we all know, this is the future we need to get used to now. Hurtigruten is not what it used to be either.

    This is definately not the right thread for this, but in case you are interested in actual BOOKs (not e-books), Wangsmo Antikvariat in Trondheim does have a couple of books about Hurtigruten in their latest catlogue....

    PS: These are all second hand books.

    It has been reported earlier that Hurtigruten will be powering their ships in part by "rotten fish" after conversion to meet the new emission requirements.
    Here is some more realistic description of the systems involved: http://www.ngvglobal.com/blog/hoglun...retrofits-0322
    It is true that rotten fish may be one of the ingredients used to produce the biogas though.

    Oioioi... those are some pretty aggressive plans for future development of the platou. I'm not sure, based on the little information I have, whether this is good or bad.

    A luxury hotel is out of reach for most Norwegians and will be something for the high end of tourists. A luxury hotel needs infrastructure. A hotel will transform this quiet area and pure nature-experience will perhaps disappear. One of the things that I like with the place is that it's so quiet and so wild (wild nature).

    Uhm... I think I need some more information and time to make up a better and more educated opinion.

    I didn't know that Scandic and Rica are the owners of the area. Learned something new again.

    Hmmm - I can see why Hurtigruten can influence plans to move the port to Storbukt (less far for me to walk when I'm there!), but they don't own Nordkapp (the beautiful place, not the beautiful boat) or the facilities there - at least not at the moment. There's been a lot of stuff in the press about the Fylke or Kommune taking the cape over, but at the moment it's firmly in Scandic and Rica Eiensdom's hands.

    Hurtigruten is discussing new plans for the Nordkapp. New hotel, busses and port for establishment as round-year attraction. I just found this information in the German Hurtigforum.
    I am not sure, if that was a good idea, to divide the coastal service into two parts... Hurtigruten is massively investing in the Cruise business. What will Havila do? Can the North survive the activities of two competing companies?

    I have the feeling, that the good old days will be over soon. A Hurtigruten traveller will not longer be a visitor and participient of Norwegian coastal life and culture, he is an economical factor then, and a lot of companies try to squeeze the maximum amount of money out of him.
