Photographer's Note

After a wonderful night at the harbour of Harstad and a very short sleep I was ready to board MS Richard With, departing at 7:45 towards Tromsø.
Like I mentioned at "Sailing away with virus" photo, cruise ship business has been hit hard by Covid-19 pandemic. Cruises of Hurtigruten to Svalbard had to be cancelled after a few infections. But regular Hurtigruten service along the coast of Norway is active. It is seen as an essential part of Norwegian infrastructure, serving remote coastal communities between Bergen and Kirkenes. I have to say I would not participate a long cruise these days. But my journey onboard Richard With was just six and a half hours. The ship was obviously not crowded, I spent most of the time at the sun deck and felt fairly safe.
