The first assignment for the MS Finnmarken is to cover for MS Nordlys which had an accident in September 2011. There's also good news about MS Nordlys; she will be back in traffic on the 20th of March 2012.

When MS Nordlys is back, the new assignment for MS Finnmarken is to replace the ageing MS Nordstjernen. This will happen on then 22th of March 2012. Although this will mean an increase in capasity for Hurtigruten, it will be a sad farewell to this classic beauty. Maybe Hurtigruten can use her for the Spitsbergen sailings?
From the 3rd until the 24th of January of 2012, Hurtigruten will be a ship short. But from the 25th of the same month the schedule is back on track.
