Owners Westfal Larsen, Bergen, Norway

Hi Frank

I always thought that the Norwegian merchant navy was a closed shop with nationals only - how come you worked on their ships?

Hi Paul,

As far as I am aware the Norwegian Merchant Navy has never been a closed shop. Norway being a country with a small population and a large merchant fleet, so they needed to employ foreign seamen, I worked on Norwegian ships for about 6 years, on the whole they were very good ships to work on, and the crews were very friendly

cheers Frank.

Hi Paul,

I see that you were on the NORTHERN STAR in 1973, there is every chance that our paths crossed in the South Pacific, as I was working on the ROYAL VIKING STAR for 3 years (1973-1976) and we visited the South Pacific a few times during that time.

cheers Frank

Going back to the closed-shop business, I believe that to be a Captain on a Norwegian ship you would have to hold Norwegian nationality. I have sailed with a couple of captains that were not Norwegian at birth, but they changed to Norwegian citizenship.

Norwegian ships have never been closed shop.
I have worked on them for many years(german) sometime with up to 17 different nations on one ship.At times it is true the captain had to be norwegian. but nowadays with the second register (NIS)moore than half of the Captains are indian Phillipinos Russians etc

Hello Ernst,
In 1973/6 on the Royal Viking Star (Norwegian ship) we had a crew of many different nationalities, the most we had onboard at one time was 32 different countries represented, out of a crew of about 260.
