    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".

    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.

    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 :-)

    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?

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

    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....

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

    Suppose you all know, but 2015 saw the last of BOUDICCA as an all white ship. Colour changed to grey/blue-ish hull with a red bow to stern line. (Photo on Facebook, but I'm not able to load FB to my job pc).

    BOUDICCA has been a frequent visitor to Kristiansund, but now..., in her new look, she's not booked for 2016 neither 2017 to call my home town (so far).

    Some further BOUDICCA details... just because I have no idea how long we'll get to see her sailing...

    When BOUDICCA came to town... I wonder how many more years we will have the honor and pleasure seeing such graceful ships in port?
