    Great photos Bengt. If I understand correctly then some of the kommunes are enforcing their own quarantine rules anyway - Vardø and the Nordkyn villages being amongst them. Impacting our family in Finnmark quite a bit at the moment.

    For example:

    The two hurtigrute ships "Richard With" and "Vesterålen" operate an extra ordinary route between Bodø - Kirkenes - Bodø (6 days) during these corona times.
    Both ships on their first roundtrip south Tromsø strait.

    All other sailings are canceled during this period.

    Only guests who have been in Norway for the past 14 days may come on board. Body temperature measurement will be performed on boarding. Guests with a fever (temperature above 38 ° C) will not be allowed to board. Before boarding, all passengers must complete a health and travel history form.

    Guests who, during the last 14 days prior to boarding, have had close contact with or helped to care for people suspected or diagnosed with coronavirus (COVID-19), will be denied boarding. This also applies to people who are subject to health monitoring after possible exposure to COVID-19.

    The vessels will secure important transport of local passengers, goods and necessary goods.

    The vessels have clear and rigorous hygiene procedures to create a safe environment on board. The vessels have further strengthened their cleanliness and introduced strict procedures for disinfecting common areas.

    For the time being, it will not be possible for non-traveler guests to visit the Hurtigruten ship while in port.

    We plan to start resuming the normal sailing schedule from April 20.

    Havila will take over the crews of four Hurtigruten ships. That means that the refurbished ships will get new crews for the new cruises. The flag will remain Norwegian, but the job conditions will be different. But i am still not able to find any details.

    I guess you are right Clipper.

    Are these issues not more to do with where a ship is registered than where it sails?

    Dear Yves.

    I did some research, but no result in my sources. I have no idea. Sorry.

    I have a question.
    If I'm right, on the "normal" line, the employees of the company are under Norwegian rules concerning social security, salaries, retirements, and so on.
    Will it be the case for Maud,Eirick Raude and Otto Sverdrup staff and crew since these ships will not be under contract to the Norwegian State. Even though they will continue to sail along the Norwegian coast.

    MS Fridtjof Nansen will be earlier ready than planned. Therefore there will be 5 shortrips available in March 2020, even before her official maiden voyage.
    The first pre-maiden voyage will lead for 7th to 12th of March from London (Tilbury) to Liverpool, then Liverpool - Portsmouth, Portsmouth - London (Tower Bridge), London - Oslo and Oslo - Hamburg. From Hamburg she will start as scheduled at 1st of April.

    Nothing but a RUMOR, and what people talk about... but Hurtigruten now owns most of the tourist related businesses at Svalbard.

    Haven't been able to find anything online about it (yet).

    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?!
Working...
