The A-deck was filled with smoke and the smokedivers was training in putting out the fire and searching for two "missing" persons.

          Seems like this winter will be the last for Nordstjernen with Hurtigruten. The Finnmarken is returning from Australia. Wonder what will happen to this beautiful ship..?

            Rumors, and that is all I have heard, talks of a sale.... I have heard to a Christian company, a medical facility operator and a few others....

            BUT, and there is a big BUT... they are all nothing else than rumors.

            I guess only time will tell what will happen to the old Lady: when the company is ready, they will let us know.

            But, again, a big but, I do fear she will not be int he country too long.

              Does anyone have pictures of the interior of the Nordstjernen, particularly the cabins?

                Re: ::: Nordstjernen :::

                Take a look at this site:

                http://www.norwegische-postschiffe.de/

                Press the button "Geschichte 1945-1988" atb the bottom of the page.
                Scroll down in the left window "Die Schiffe der Zeit" until you find "M/S Nordstjernen".
                Scroll down in the big window and you will find a lot of cabin- and interior pictures.

                    Followed the link and great pictures. Great interior! Take a look at this one, of the bow: http://www.norwegische-postschiffe.d...s56_bug_02.jpg

                    What's the repair for? Maybe she ran into something?

                      The old girl's days are numbered! Hurtigruten reports that MS Finnmarken is set to replace MS Nordstjernen from the 22th of March 2012...

                        Yes, that is exactly what I've heard too.... 22.03.2012 is her final day, and this time, I doubt she will ever come back again.

                        She has been retired before, but always managed to return. This time though, I'm afraid it's the final date.

                            Good news then - lets hope for the best beyond that. A bit of a 'Glamorous Granny' amongst the fleet, Nordstjernen has real charm.

                              Awmigawd!!! She'll get to do more Svalbard cruises!!! Then there's hope, AGAIN.
                              This resilient and apparently everlasting ship is amazing! Her last voyage may never happen if she keeps going on like this...

                              You made me very happy tonight, Carina!

                                Haha, seems hard to get rid of this lady.
                                I want to share some pictures from her last Svalbard-season, in 2008. I was so lucky to get the opportunity to go with them right before my apprentice-time ended on Hurtigruten the same summer.




                                The bear. Amazing sight. I think we spotted the bear on almost every trip. We even had a bear swimming by the boat one time..


                                The guys on deck spotting a bear. That itself made a fun photo..




                                Boat-trip with tourists by the glaciers. Amazing!
