Right Paul, but inside in that original part of the ship, everything is like it was when she was sailing in the Hurtigrute and in use as hotel.
Only that restaurant part is really terrible, I can fully agree!

For the lovers of this type of Hurtigrute ships I have copieed a prospect from this ship as she is now in Antwerpen.
If you will search for a hotel for a couple of nights, this might be a nice sollution!
