"The World's Most Beautiful Voyage"

The Ship

TrollfjorfThe ship on this cruise was named  MS Trollfjord after a very scenic narrow fjord which was visited twice. It is not your typical cruise ship with crowded decks and 24 hour food and entertainment. It is a working vessel on a schedule carrying freight, vehicles, mail, and passengers to otherwise isolated villages.

TrollfjordBut the passengers are nevertheless well taken care of. Three ample meals a day were provided. There were several lounges, some entertainment, excursions, and lots of opportunity to enjoy the continuously changing beautiful scenery. There were two covered, glass enclosed lounges forward and a large open deck with lots of chairs and Trollfjordtwo hot tubs aft. In between were a coffee shop, store, cafeteria, staterooms, and entrance area all connected by two elevators and some stairs.

The picture shows three rows of windows. The bottom one is for piloting the ship and contains the controls and on the side projecting views for docking. The next, partially hidden, row is for the main viewing lounge. The top row is the ninth deck lounge.

The large forward lounge on deck eight was an excellent place from which to watchlounge the passing land. Comfortable chairs and tables encouraged restful sightseeing, reading, or quiet conversation. The aft observation deck provided unobstructed views, sun bathing, hot tubing, and relaxation.

Three photo galleries, one for external views of the ship, one for internal views, and one for a lifeboat drill are available.
