    NORDSTJERNEN has a captain from Gjemnes, just a 30 minutes drive from Kristiansund, and he told the local newspaper that he will take the ship to Kristiansund 29. April and moore her at Nordmørskaia quay around 10 AM.
    The reason for this visit? Nothing special. They just had some spare time on their hands, as their next scheduled departure will be from Bergen 10. May.
    The captain said NORDSTJERNEN will be in Kristiansund for the coming week.

    (Note to self: Remember to charge camera batteries)

    With the limited stories in media, I'm not sure I fully understand the incident in Bodø, what the problem was.

    In addition, the newspaper stories are written by people who doesn't know the difference between ship, boat, cruise ship, passenger ship, ferry, flag, NIS or NOR....

    The passenger can join some ski-tours in Senja, Andørja and Henningsvaer. I hope, Bengt can catch her in Tromsø. I wonder how many people book a cruise to do a ski tour...
    By the way, say hello from me to Evelyn, Mark!

    NORDSTJERNEN just passed Kristiansund and will meet southbound VESTERAALEN abeam Edøy on her way to Bodø. I'm at work, so I didn't get the opportunity to see her myself.

    Evelyn (Harald Jarl) emailed this morning - some computer/logging in issues, but she says ... NORDSTJERNEN is on her way to Haugesund, presently abeam Egersund:
    She will be hotelship for mountain climbers in Lofoten several weeks, the event is called "Haute route" - going on maybe like 2-3 weeks, also alternating between Bodø and Tromsø.

    I stayed on a campsite near Hamburg where the parking place is far away from the tents. In the morning my car boot was open and I couldn’t find the telephoto lens. Lost or stolen – I don’t know, but this means no more close-up views.

    Nordstjernen in the locks in Brunsbüttel, unfortunately the weather was grey.

    The crew in front of the bow and Blohm and Voss in the background.







    Not so many photos from inside because I think, it is all well known here. But I love the toilet with the emergency exit.

    Eilun,
    thank you for showing this splendid photo. To me she remains the epitome of a streamlined freighter/passenger ship. I think it was some decades ago I read that she was laid up - or planned to be. Good to see she is not. However I would not travel on her - far too large....!

    Sorry, some more photos will follow soon. Last days I was busy producing juice from apples and pears in our garden.

    A special photo for nari:



    This weekend was the celebration 30 years Cap San Diego in Hamburg, too. Open ship on Friday and a short cruise on Saturday. I visited the machine while it was working. Yes, I took a lot of photos there, but wrong thread.

    Wonderful picture report from Hamburg - truly a very special sight seeing her next to Cap San Diego.

    Thanks for those photos - but no photo of the cap san diego herself? Still going after all these years and one of the best looking vessels ever...

    Superb pictures. Nordstjernen together with Cap San Diego is a flash back in former times. #2051/3 is an interesting angle. Looks like a round bow. It must have been a great experience for the passengers to be allowed to stay at the bow. Thank you for sharing, Eilun!
