Photographer's Note

This was the first sight of "our" ship, the M/S Lofoten, that would lead us all along the Norwegian coasts in the following days. The picture is taken in Bergen, at the new Hurtigruten terminal.

The M/S Lofoten is one of the 14 ships from the Hurtigruten route, and almost the oldest one. She was built in 1964, and has been refitted since to meet today's confort requirements, without losing any bit of her "ancient" soul. The interior lounges are warm, cosy and confortable, with an intimate atmosphere.

The M/S Lofoten in 87m long and 13m wide. It can accomodate 410 passengers altogether, including 147 "live-in" people in 87 cabins. Compare that to the 135m-long M/S Trollfjord, build in 2002, the most recent ship on the line: 822 passengers, 652 beds in 304 cabins: a small village compared to a buzzing city. Each have their good and bad sides!

I had chosen the M/S Lofoten on purpose (I do have a taste for old boats, you see) and enjoyed life on board tremendously.
