    Crewmembers on the fore-ship only

    by globetrott Written Mar 9, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: It was actually the 3rd cruise I took in my life working as a diningroom-waiter
    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    Fondest memory: Crewmembers are only allowed to go on deck on the small fore-ship.
    Its a rather restricted room for about 250 crew-members, but some of them are on duty most of the time anyway

    Watch out for seals, birds and Polar-bears

    by globetrott Written Mar 9, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: We watched out for animals
    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    Fondest memory: It was great to see, how the seals, lying on the large icebergs would slide into the water only in the very last moment, when our ship was maybe just 200 meters away

    What a wonderful landscape !

    by globetrott Written Mar 9, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The weather was a bit foggy, but we really did not care at all, the sight was fine anyway
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    Fondest memory: There was absolutely NO wind, and really perfect weather conditions will seldom be found, when cruising the remote islands of Svalbard / Spitzbergen

    It started with a great day

    by globetrott Written Mar 9, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This is the story of one of the best days I ever had, while working onboard of the cruise-ship M/S Vistafjord.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    Fondest memory: It started with the idea of our captain, to go into a Fjord, normally not being on any cruiseship's route...

    The Sysselman left again

    by globetrott Written Mar 9, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: After some time the Sysselman left us again
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    Fondest memory: Everybody had to step back, as the air-pressure was really heavy
