    This is so true! Exactly the feeling I am when I'm on board.
    Great pictures Tommi, thank you for sharing them.

      Lofoten is definetely more a home than any other Hurtigrute today, it's easy to find a corner for yourself, or a other corner with your friends. The ship is not perfect in any way, but it still is a very nice total experience. I also like the small scale where everything is located just some steps away. Boarding Finnmarken in Tromsø felt like stepping into a giant hotel.
      Now back to Lofoten!

        The rear saloon has nice sofas but is actually really noise compared to many boats.


        And the aft staircase is even worse. It seems like this area has been refurbished a couple of years ago, the wall panels were a bit different compared to the rest of the ship.

          The saloon on the upper deck.


          Daytime.


          Nighttime.






          Yet another variant of aircondition knobs. I think there are at least three different types in the public spaces.

              Entrance, steer board side.


              Details of the step inside. Or does this part have a special nautical name? Very typical in old ships.


              The ladder is a bit worn out. These ladders are actually very nice and practical to walk in.


              Rail details.

                  The ticket expedition and tour leaders office.


                  I wonder if this sofa actually is 49 years old?


                  Herbs for all occasions.


                  It's not hard to be near the sea on Lofoten.

                        I actually try to record the noise (I have a small voice-recorder which I use to record my first impressions during the trip and also some noises such as the horn signals and so on...), it is so specific of this ship (I should say "these ships" since another passenger who had been on MS Nordstjernen told me the rythm was pretty similar). It's a sort of rythmic noise, almost like a heart-beat... (the recording failed unfortunately).

                        Stunning pictures Tommi.

                            It is very cozy, almost as visiting a friend. Thank you for your comment.

                            Thank you. That noise actually made me smile quite much, it kind of fits in very well.

                                Sooo beautiful pictures. I like the detail pictures of the air conditioning knobs. As far as i remember they are all different, but the effect if you use them is always the same - NONE.

                                I don't know how old the reception sofa is, but that is an interesting question. I will do some research, if i have some more time during the next weeks.
