The MS Finnmarken has started its voyage home!

Today Hurtigruten announced on its Facebook profile that the MS Finnmarken, which has been a long way from home in Australia, finally has started its voyage back home to Norwegian shores. The ship has been in Singapore for some weeks for refurbishment and new paint, and is now sailing for Cape Town. By making the journey around the south of Africa, the MS Finnmarken will avoid the pirate infested waters near Somalia.

As earlier posted, the MS Finnmarken will cover for MS Nordlys, before replacing the aged veteran ship MS Nordstjernen. So, not long before we can enjoy the sight of this magnificent ship, back where she belongs. Best wishes for a happy Christmas for the crew sailing the MS Finnmarken home!
