    Re: ::: Nordstjernen :::

    Thanks Carina for the link, that's a great report where you really can feel the smallness of the ship. Happy to see Cecilia too!

      This is the same "Propellor Walk" effect I asked about earlier in this topic at p46/#910 with subsequent answers by Ombugge, who tried very hard to explain what was actually happening in Carina's photo (#905). By the way, I still don't fully understand but that's just me.

      Propellor walk happens under acceleration both ahead and astern but is typically much more pronounced astern. The Wikipedia entry tries to explain the effect but I get the feeling that, whilst predictable, it's not fully understood.

        TKTV is short for Tidens Krav television, where Tidens Krav is our local newspaper here in Kristiansund.
        Very enjoyable to watch this, and out of all possible possibilities, to put it that way, they managed to interview our Cecilia...

                What a day it could have been in Ålesund if I had gone there. "Nordstjernen" moored and 'Open Ship' on that huge offshore vessel there. I don't remember its name and it don't show on my AIS right now.

                EDIT:
                Just found out that the Open Ship there is the new building "Olympic Energy" delivered from STX Europe now in 2012.

                        When MS Nordstjernen came to Ålesund i had been lucky to get a ticket with cabin on her last run to Bergen.
                        I will now share my pictures with you from that emotionally last trip.


                        Moored up at the dock.


                        A lot of passengers and visitors was going onboard.


                        The last cargo,some 30 pallets,was loaded.


                        The last sight of Ålesund as a hurtigrute.


                        The next day in Florø,unloading the cargo.

                          The crew waveing to the crowd at the dock.




                          The "Laundry" was ready to be hoisted.


                          Some rolling over the Sognefjord.


                          When sailing near land we saw people here and there waveing at us.
                          We ofcourse waved and shouted back,it was almost like "Hurtigruten:minute by minute" all over.Ho-Ho.


                          When reaching the harbour of Bergen, MS Finnmarken came out to meet with us.

                            Finnmarken moored up behind Nordstjernen when reaching the dock.


                            A brass band was playing creerful tunes as people was ready to go ashore.



                            The Captain was beeing interviewed by the NRK.


                            And the cargo-room was emptied for the last time.
