BERGENSFJORD at Bergen 24-09-2008


The Danish Ro-Pax ferry BERGENSFJORD photographed in the port of Bergen on 24 September 2008.
Operated by Fjordline of Norway and owned by a DFDS Group company, the BERGENSFJORD looks very smart in her present livery.
Built by Fosen in 1993 as BERGEN (1993-2000), renamed DUCHESS OF SCANDINAVIA when bought by DFDS (2000-2003) and later ATLANTIC TRAVELLER (2003-2005). In 2005 she got her present name.
A name once used by a beautiful Norwegian America Line passenger ship, the BERGENSFJORD of 1956.

Unless I'm terribly mistaking, you got her ownership the wrong way around. She's been owned by Fjord Line (or associated companies) through-out her career and it was DFDS whom chartered her from Fjord Line to be their DUCHESS OF SCANDINAVIA after Fjord Line bought the FJORD NORWAY.
