    Suggestions? What would the next HRG ship be called?

    Just thought we could have some fun by thinking ahead: if Hurtigruten ever came to the decision to build a new ship for the coastal fleet, what do you think the new ship would be named?

    Any good suggestions?

    My tongue is as foreign as anyone's but GJOA (can't put the slash in the 'O') sounds like Gyera.....not very romantic?

    I favour MAGAROYA - it is rather a significant peninsula what with Nordkapp and the start of my favourite fjord - Porsanger.....

    Agree very much with Sterkoder - keep on using those pens! That is actually cool the way it came out.

    Hey..., not bad at all! Actually very good and a candidate to be framed for a special place on the wall :-) You should do more Tommi...., and I'm so glad I could inspire you. Happy drawing!!

    This evening I did get some inspiration reading Sterkoders Art thread and rediscovered my aquarel pens from elementary school.
    Not too bad for a 5 minute sketch.

    Don't know if there will be a new boat but in the list of Hurtigruten ships you cannot find one with a name of a woman.Are they misogynous,the big chiefs?

    No idea, but... I suppose that in a few years, if they don't want to reduce service or do something radically different, they will first think of replacing Lofoten and Vesterålen. Maybe even Vesterålen first, as there is, I think, a substantial amount of tourists with a special fondness for the old generation (me included ), and HRG may wish to cater for this demand as long as it's economically feasible with their last ship of this generation. I think few would have assumed some years ago that Narvik and Midnatsol II/Lyngen would leave the fleet before Nordstjernen, but now I think it could look similar for Lofoten and Vesterålen. But as I wrote, I have no real idea, as I'm just an interested tourist and Hurtigruten enthusiast The question is interesting, in any case. I still think of Kong Harald and Richard With as new ships, but these two are 20 years old by now... probably there are already cruise passengers calling them "old"...

    Will there be a next HRG ship? Let's hope so. But when? What plans do exist? Are there drawings to be seen? What is the HRG politics for new ship/ships?

    Well, Øistein, if he was made a saint that's even better.

    No, no, shipmates, it must be Kong Olav II.
    The name "Kong Olav II" can lead to misunderstandings
    Olav II Haraldsson (995 – 1030), later known as St. Olav, was King of Norway from 1015 to 1028.

    I would rather go for Oluf Jarl.

    Well... Hurtigruten has a lot of German tourists, and will not "Kriegsmann" sound strange to them? - meaning "man of war" in German... and of course it's just a long name. "I travelled aboard the Lofoten" or "aboard the Nordlys" sounds somewhat better than "aboard the August Kriegsmann Gran" - what? what ship did you travel on? How was that name again? - Although it seems it would be a historically fitting name.
