          Wonderful image and composition, and the monochrome imparts a period feel, suggesting the age of the ship, yet in a way timeless. From your comment “still in service in May 2010”, I’m sure you felt that yourself.

              Had a strange phone call last night (from a blocked number ), and they asked me if I had any comment on the news that Nordstjernen had canceled her calls from Trondheim to Bergen due to mechanical faults.....

              Me? Comment? Absolutely not, I don't know... if they need some information, maybe they should rather call Hurtigruten and get the details from them.... I'm not working in the press release department of HRG group...

              When I eventually summoned myself, and asked who they were calling from, they hung up?

              I guess I'll file that phone call into the "life's strange calls...".

              This morning, when checking the HRG website, I notice Nordstjernen has canceled her calls between Trondheim and Bergen and that she will resume her route as usual from Bergen on May 19th (today).

              For what it's worth, I do not want to speculate on these frequent route interruptions of the older ships, but they are old and really tired. Maybe this is the reason why HRG is looking into new ships....

                    Your images are always such a true pleasure seeing: super sharp, large size and full of details!

                    These images are nothing different: very high standard!

                      Svalbard Cruise

                      I came across a website with a detailed report from a Svalbard Cruise, with detailed and well written captions: http://europeforvisitors.com/cruises...gen-cruise.htm

                      I didn't know whether to post it in this thread or in the "This is the Arctic" thread, so I'll post it in both.

                            [QUOTE=Asimut;29317]"Nordstjernen" north again from Tromsø this evening.

                            Interesting to see these pictures, as I was onboard myself!

                            Also interesting is the picture when we arrived at Bergen on 16th April. I am not quite sure what went wrong, but we made 3 attempts to come alongside! That never happended in any other port!

                              Oh Harald, it’s brilliant when that happens isn’t it! Seeing one’s own trip from a different viewpoint. It’s happened to me a few times too, and it’s always a thrill.

                              I looked back at your earlier posts and have realised you said when you’d be aboard Nordstjernen, but I confess I’d forgotten when the time actually arrived. I enjoy following our family members voyages even if it is only me sitting at home trying to catch their ships on webcams.

                              If you have the time I’d love to hear more about your trip, and I’m sure I wouldn’t be the only one as Nordstjernen is a favourite here!

                                Sure, I shall prepare a short summary in a few days. In the meantime, some pictures from this trip may be seen here:
