    Re: ::: Nordstjernen :::

    Oh, look at her..., so bright and shiny in her new make-up!! Couldn't they just (for the retro feeling of it) give her the original three white rings on her funnel for her last months in public traffic...?
    Anyway, nostalgia, I know....., I just want to point out she looks fit and able like never before... Thanks, Tom!

    EDIT: And just so it is said; it's a delight to watch her without those HURTIGRUTEN letters in black at her stern. A shear delight!!

          I love that... I think it would be a great idea!

            What a blast of a picture! Nordstjernen and Kong Harald looks really great together due the smaller size of NX.

              It's so fun seeing vessels inbound to Tromsø on AIS, because it usually just takes a few hours and then you post pictures Great pictures !

                        Congratulation Asimut!
                        I'm glad that you didn't miss the chance getting both ships so close together.
                        I was standing on the wrong (southern) side of the bridge. Both Nordstjernen and Kong Harald should depart at the same time, but when Nordstjernen finally cleared the pier, the Kong Harald already had passed the bridge.

                        Anyway, here is my video of that day:

                            One guy at Norsk Skipsfarts Forum said that Nordstjernen will sail two roundtrips for Nordlys from 01.09.2012
                            Anyone surprised? Nah, not really

                              That's because Hurtigruten ASA has decided NOT to sell the old lady after her Svalbard sailings this summer. They will keep her in the fleet and maintain her as a back-up ship.

                                Thank you for this positive information. I hope it will soon be confirmed by an official statement.
                                I think this is not only good news for the ship lovers, it will also be a reasonable decision for the company.
                                Not only to have a back up ship but also offering nostalgic trips in summer. There is a market for such!!
