I was asked what the FINNMARKEN was doing in Western Australia.

Here is an explanation:-
"[i]Hurtigruten is saying farewell to FINNMARKEN -- at least for a year and a half. The expedition line has signed off on an 18-month charter, with an option for an 18-month extension.

The 15,530-ton, 639-passenger ship is being chartered to Boskalis Australia Pty Limited, a global provider of dredging and maritime infrastructure services. FINNMARKEN will provide marine construction support (carry supplies) on the Gorgon project in Western Australia, which involves the development of a natural gas plant[/i]".

This probably also explains why she does not sport the usual Hurtigruten hull colours.
