        No idea, really, but there has got to be some... most days around this time there would be a whole bunch of them.

        I hope we get to see Crystal Serenity which is also somewhere along the coast now.

                  Many of you probably already know this, but if you go to http://nrk.no/hurtigruten/ you can just click on any point on the red dotted line on the map, and watch the video again. I just saw video from Torvik and Ålesund that I missed this morning

                      A very good point Sigve! But unfortunately there are annoyingly inconvenient timed commitments that have to be done over the weekend …otherwise I’m sure I’d have actually made it to Norway right now!

                      It certainly does, especially as at this morning's location I got to watch on a nice big 40-inch TV Screen.

                      In fact it felt so realistic that I thought I’d pop down to deck 4 for buffet lunch….only to get a reality check when I found only a near-empty fridge...no herring, no salmon, not even any SHRIMPS...!!!!!!!

                        Re: Hurtigruten - minute by minute

                        I don't want to steal this thread and use it for anything else, but after watching the worlds longest continuing tv-broadcast of one specific programme, and this is about a long sea voyage....., if you want a little break or save it for later:

                        Here's a video of 23 min. 29 sec. as we follow "Sundbåten - second by second"

                        Link: http://www.tk.no/nyheter/article5642969.ece

                        A stunt by the Sundbåten company, local tv and newspaper, and I guess the tourist office in conjunction to the ongoing project on NRK2.

                        From the main dock at the Pier in the city senter, the sundbåten sail to Innlandet, or Tahiti, as we call the island.
                        On the pontoon you can see some palms, as we close in on the Tahiti Festival next week.

                        (Feel free to move this to the Kristiansund thread if you want to, Jan-Olav)

                          I will encourage everybody to watch the show when she's heading for Raftsundet, Trollfjorden and Stokmarknes. ( Hurtigrutens birthplace )

                          In Stokmarknes there will be a "midnightsun consert" from 24:00 to 1:15, and NRK has previously been in Stokmarknes and filmed some shots from M/S Gamle Finnmarken and they have got some archive pictures from when the section from D/S Finnmarken was delivered.
                          Sten Magne Engen, Hurtigrute captain and one of the leaders in Hurtigrutemuseet, will be on board the ship from Svolvær to Stokmarknes.
                          I think it would we worth watching, even though the whole consert will not be filmed
                          I'm also guessing there will be plenty of small boats coming to meet the ship on her way.

                          In the local web paper, Kari Ann Olsen says there will be done some "stunts", to show how much we appreciate Hurtigruten
                          Here is a link, as always from www.vol.no, it is in Norwegian.

                            We've been watching all day here in the UK on the web.
                            Absolutely superb pictures and it brings back so many memories of our voyage 26 years ago.
                            Great technical achievement appreciated by some-one who worked in BBC TV for 30 years!

                              We must not also forget that when the ship arrives at Rørvik on Saturday night, they will have the ANNUAL HURTIGRUTEN DAY there.

                              And, I've heard rumors that the other ship in Rørvik on Saturday night (tomorrow evening) is no other than the star herself: The Northern Star: Nordstjernen!

                              Tomorrow morning, they will be in Trondheim.
