The newest ship of the Hurtigruten-fleet right now is Spitsbergen, a converted ferry which started her somewhat troubled life as Antlantida. I’m not going to retell the whole story as you can find it all over the Internet, but the thing I find to be the most funny detail about Spitsbergen is her callsign, LEIF… a very typical Norwegian name. Here are some of my own images of the ship in question, taken at various times during her first year of operation.†

The ship has her very own thread at CaptainsVoyage Forum, which at the time of writing is 4 pages long (85 posts). You may want to consider looking into the thread if you are a bit curious about the ship. CLICK HERE (opens in a new tab).†
