    Thank you so very much nari and Lady C!

    I particularly liked the way the second image came out, because of the propeller-wash. Kind of reminded me of all those thousands of miles of "keel water" that ship has produced all across the world within her more than 59 years of incredible service. That propeller has churned A LOT of water in the years.

    Such a "pretty ship" and very graceful.

    Such a lovely image of the ship in Trondheim,with the still grey water, the green of Munkholmen, and the blueness of the land at the other side of the fjord.

    Ok, thanks. I can see the "protruding" portholes back there might get caught in fenders of that type and nature.

    I believe they will have welded on steel plates in order to get permission by relevant maritime authorities to continue operating. Will probably have to be fixed on next visit to drydcok.

    Yes I know about that ...it was the result of a docking incident in Stornoway on the trip I was on.The pier there seemed to me to be more appropriate for the large CalMac ferries or bigger flat-sided cruise ships than our little curvy Lady! We'd been tendering by zodiacs everywhere else, so I was watching activity on the foredeck and the guys ashore seemed slow with the lines. Then a commotion aft (which I couldn't see) when the pier structure hit those two windows. The glass was shattered i.e. crazed, but remaining in place as it's supposed to. I don't know whether the blocking off of the exterior of those windows as seen in your photos is a permanent or temporary arrangement.


    View towards the foredeck, to show you what the pier is like.


    View taken later after breakfast from the corner of the aft deck.


    Only able to get this view between two skips after I'd disembarked.


    One of the windows in the lounge.

    Thank you for the tips on this coming Saturday - I had missed that in the port cruise schedule. I'm not sure I will have time to go see her then, but these images will be a great memory for me already.

    I had no idea she would not be back for her 60th year anniversary - that's pity for Trondheim.

    That's magnificent, pakarang, a completely different view of her and the city that you've been able to capture in glorious weather.
    She will call back in Trondheim next Saturday, but she won't be along the coast at all next year, as she is spending more time in the Faroes and Iceland.

    Today, a 59 year old girl came back to her birth-town, Trondheim, Norway: 60 years ago, construction started on this beautiful vessel at Trondheim, and next year, it'll be 60 years since she started her career.

    I hope she will be in Trondheim on that very special day, in June 2020, on her 60th birthday, and that the city has some decency to show some respect for this ship on the day.

    The ship looks so great from any angle she is seen, and so perfectly suited to her way of cruising where no mega-liners can go, with guests that have a genuine interest in the true feeling and history of a port or destination.

    The old Harald Jahl design is still evident but she does look lovely and elegant.

    I'll have photos in the "Postcards" thread at some point, but you get a preview of Bantry House gardens as they afforded lovely views of Serenissima at anchor.



    View looking over the East Stables.








    The north terrace




    My favourite photo. No need to take a selfie when this elegant lady and the ship can be pictured together!

    Here are two photos of Serenissima after lunch, taken from a zodiac.
