    Norwegian Royal Yacht "Norge"

    Norwegian Royal Yacht "Norge"

    Sadly, I haven't been able to see this fine vessel too many times. The only time I can recall seeing it, is in Oslo. I don't think I've ever seen it any other place. Which is very sad, because it is a really beautiful vessel.

    This thread is dedicated to collecting stories and images of this fine ship.

    I am actually using a screensaver by Panomax, which is showing various webcams of ships (Hurtigruten, too), among them MS Europa 2. She is showing a familiar sight in the port of Palma de Mallorca: RMS Norge is moored there. I must say, i am surprised, i would have expected here in more exclusive and distinguished places, not in the "17th state of Germany".

    Wonderful photos of the whole ship as well as the detailed close-ups.

    That are with all the "mess" is not suitable for a yacht of this caliber, but as any other older vessel, there is just not enough storage space on board. I also notice that there are a lot of cabling around the top-decks, not too unlike how it is on Nordstjernen for example. Looking back at the images when the Royal Yacht came to Trondheim a while ago, there seems to be the same things in the same place.

    But no matter what, it's a very stately yacht and it's a very important symbol on Norwegian maritime heritage (whatever is left of it at least).

    This wonderful vessel really stands out on the Norwegian coast.

    I have never seen a decks plan for R/Y Norge, but that space in front of the funnel is a place the "owners" can't see from their quarters.
    Guess the things we see on board now is a little different from what we will see when the boat is used for representation and official business, as the Queen was on a private holiday on this trip.
    Note, there are also four kayaks moored to the roof there, which I'm sure we will not see on any official sailing. But of course, I don't know.

    Look at #151/6 at the storage space for the terrace furniture. Someone created a real mess there. Not very "royalish". I wonder, if there is a decksplan anywhere in the net. It seems to me that the majority of the living rooms are quite close to the engine. What do you think? Is she as comfortable as beautiful?

    26th June 2019 and Queen Sonja end her private vacation in Kristiansund.
    In the days previous, a good week or so, she has been mooring around islands Tustna and Smøla just east of the city.
    Today she came sailing into Kristiansund harbor, and Her Majesty departed for a walk around the city streets with her camera. Many pictures were taken, the local paper report.

    Here are my pictures from the R/Y NORGE visit, before the Queen flew home on a jet plane and the ship sailed on to Haakonsvern Naval Base outside Bergen.

    Some say R/Y NORGE and E/Y CAPELLA C are lookalikes, at first glance. They might be correct

    A very nice series of photographies of our Royal Yacht, I like'em a lot. And I must say, that sign on that AUDI...., even I know it's not an A-2 (mohahahahahahahaha)

    Seriously, Jan-Olav..., I really enjoy your pictures, thank you so very much from sharing.
    The reason for me getting good access in Kristiansund was that they manage to dock at the wrong quay first. That allowed me to walk down on the pontoons of the sundbåten and the floating quay of the smaller fishing vessels in this harbour. That gave me access from the outside when they docked, even though I did not have a boat. And then I had The Pier.
    Kristiansund harbour is great in that way

    I have no idea how many tenders and boats they carry, but I'm surprised at the number as well. And they were all so very, very ... ehhh... shiny too...

    I totally agree with you Lady C, I often feel that tradition is ebbing slowly away in so many layers of society. The pride having such a marvellous royal family is not with the generations of today. I especially see this in the difference between Norway and Thailand for example.

    Oh my ...Wonderful, Wonderful as I said earlier in a blog comment.
    You did absolutely everything, including a "fjord pakarang view" of the Royal Yacht and a superb "passing Munkholmen" shot complete with sailors in uniform - I feel I can see your smile and hear you saying to yourself "those are sure to please Lady C" !

    It is indeed a shame that KH didn't rise to the occasion. It feels as if tradition has been allowed to ebb away along with that ship's once rather regal interior.

    Nice ship. And you also did do some paparazzi!

    How many tenders does that ship actually have?
