    Re: ::: Nordstjernen :::

    Finally... here are some photos of the "Nordstjernen" model which was delivered to me last week from miniatyrskip.no (Esben Ronander). It took a long, long time from order to building and delivery, but I think it's very much worth the reasonable price :-)









    ... and here in the display case which I also ordered (to avoid problems with having to meticulously clean dust of the model all the time ;-) ):

    Big "thank you" from me, too :-). I doubt that she will look as sparklingly new as "Serenissima" after the Gdansk renovation - but anyway... at least the scaffolding seems to be proof that work is going on

    Kim... thank you so very very much for sharing those images here on CaptainsVoyage. [...there's probably an "emotional smiley" somewhere I can't immediately find, but consider it added right here.]

    Big Thank You.

    Flensburg is not so far away, I will visit Flensburg and I hope lightship Elbe 1 will be there.

    I thought about Bergen, too. But probably booking a flight and a hotel some days before the Fjordsteam will be very expensive.

    Sadly, today I received confirmation from the ticket office that Nordstjernen will not be ready for Flensburg (she's still in shipyard and work will not be completed timely). So I'll not be going to Flensburg (surely the other ships there are interesting as well, but my main reason would have been Nordstjernen). Well, let's see... maybe I'll go to Bergen if she's ready then...

    The visit in Bergen? I don't know...

    Saw a photo recently----- she's got her BDS livery back on the funnel, and it gave me goosebumps... (of the good kind naturally).

    Today I got a mail from the person who is still working organizing the further cruises.
    I have to correct my earlier post. They will not enlarge the cabins. Because of Riksantikvaren it is not allowed. I translated the Flensburger Newspaper and I don't know why someone wrote this.

    Some new articles about Dampf Rundum and Nordstjernen for the German speaking members:

    http://www.shz.de/nachrichten/lokale...pf-rundum.html

    http://blog.flensburg-szene.de/gut-i...f-rundum/5152/

    This is the first cruise for Nordstjernen after the shipyard. On Friday is open ship.
    The Flensburger newspaper wrote the new owner is still searching for a crew who can steer Nordstjernen in the narrow Flensburger harbour without bow thruster. In the shipyard the cabins should be enlarged.

    I don't think this is a good idea. I like the old cabins and bigger cabins means higher prices, too. Maybe Nordstjernen will become another ship for a few people with a lot of money. Most important is to install an working air condition. The hot air in the cabin wasn't acceptable. But my last cruise was many years ago possibly it is better now.


    By the way ... I bought a ticket for the roundtrip on Saturday.

    Nordstjernen gets support from Riksantikvaren (The Heritage Ministry of Norway) according to this article on NRK.no:
