    Puh...., finally got a picture, unknown photographer. Got it via the group 'Sjøfolk i utenriksfart' on FB, in a posting by Mr. Jon Almås

      I like it ----- kind of..... I mean, I would have preferred SS Norway blue, but then again, it makes me think of the casino ships of south east Asia.

      I guess I will be fully ready to give my verdict when I see it with my own eyes....

        My initial thought was, wow..., she looks like a bus from our former local bus company here in Kristiansund

          Exactly the same colours that Jotunheimen/Valdresruten Bilselskap (JVB) had for their buses for many decades. Here it is in a somewhat newer version. It can hardly be a compliment to Fred Olsen Cruise Lines that their ships look like some old norwegian bus after their redecoration? Can it?

            Heard now that Fred. Olsen Lines will repaint all of their white "swans" to this darker livery due to harbour environment rules around the globe.

            Port Authorities and environmental laws will prohibit the use of chemicals/soap to wash the white ship hulls when they are moored to get rid of markings from rust and quay fenders and such.

            Therefore the darker colour...., or so I've just heard :-)

              That sounds very much like a good reason, I have myself been a Chief Officer in charge of keeping a white shipside for some years, and it's an eternal battle. A lot more soap and paint will have to be applied in order to keep it white, as opposed to a darker color. Therefore, also an economical aspect as well as the environmental aspect.

              To say it in Lady E.'s words. Look at this se*y a*s!!

            So true, Ralf, so true.

            I actually love this image very much. Not only because it says Trondheim across the stern, but because it represents another time and era. When ships were beautiful and when working on a cruise ship was truly exotic, no matter which position. At least it felt like that to me. This is a ship I have fond memories of during earlier years, and that I even got to sail on as a crew later on. I still remember the excitement and the smells, the .... "exotic-ness".
