    The blue chairs are lightweight and portable. I don't want to comment on the behavour of your fellow countrymen, but you know....., the crew does an amazing job keeping it neat and clean in areas of COMMON use

    Nice images Jan-Olav, and allways handy to have a bridge at hand...

      The other option would be a helicopter: but that would be too expensive...

        I absolutely love those blue chair photos seen from above. The hurtigruten blue chairs have completely entered my vocabulary – in phrases such as “blue chair weather” for example!
        I have noticed that the crew do a thorough job of tidying up and collecting and stacking the chairs every night, but only occasionally at other times such as securing them in rough weather. So it’s the passengers who are putting out the chairs – thus providing an interesting insight into the passenger mix, the previous hours weather, sun and wind direction and other fascinating insights! These rows are similarly arranged all over the ship in a collective-behaviour sort of way so I think there are definitely some large tour groups travelling together on this particular trip.
        I am just going to look out a photo which shows a fascinating example of blue chair arrangement for the Midnatsol thread. . .

            Thanks Bengt for the photos, I guess I'll meet her south of Ornes tomorrow morning when I'm on board the northbound "Kong Harald" !

              Beautiful vessel this "Finnmarken".
              Didn't figure out if I liked or disliked her bow/bow deck before, but the total picture of the ship is getting better and better.

              Great pictures, and I wonder:
              I have several tenfolds of pictures of every ship in todays hurtigrute fleet.
              It's not possible to find any new angle to take pictures of them here in Kristiansund any more, but still...., I never get tired of taking pictures of the hurtigrute vessels. Wonder why...?
              Anyone else got that feeling...?

              I mean, when "Nordstjernen" or "Lofoten" approach, I fire my camera like I've never seen the ships before, and when I look at the pictures after loading them into my pc, I look at them as if I see a new ship. Don't know what this strange thing is....

                I saw her leaving Rørvik the night I went to Trondheim: her bow was packed full of passengers watching the old NX... appeared as if she was quite full, which is very good.

                  I can’t help feeling guilty reading this because I agree about her good looks, I really do . . . and yet when I eventually travelled on her I was so surprised to find myself unenthusiastic about her interior, and I even the outside deck arrangement – the accessible foredeck not quite compensating for everything else.

                  But when I am looking at your lovely photos from Tromsø I’ll forget all that (and my love for Trollfjord ) just for a moment . . .

                  And yes, as you and Sterkoder say, one can never have too many photos of the hurtigrute ships

                      Great photos. I think this is the ship we are looking at for our family holiday.

                        A good choice.... but any ship would be great, I can assure you!

                          I like the round, elegant lines - for me the most attractive ship of the "new agers".
                          Nice to see cool rainy days in Tromso, while sitting in the heat and waiting for the next thunderstorm....

                                Backtracking some of my own images, to share with all of you, hopefully to some enjoyment.

                                These were taken from Kong Harald just south of Ørnes, on May 3rd 2009, and is the moment when we met the southbound Finnmarken.
