Norwegian cruise line Hurtigruten AS was the first ocean cruise line in the world to resume cruise operations, with MS Otto Sverdrup sailing from Bergen to Kirkenes on 16 June 2020. Hurtigruten's Roald Amundsen resumed its cruises on 17 July with a seven-day roundtrip cruise from Tromsø to Svalbard, followed by another that departed on 24 July.
The ship arrived and docked at the Port of Los Angeles cruise ship terminal on 27 March 2020. Her mission is to treat patients other than those with COVID-19, freeing up land-based hospitals to deal with the virus,  similar to how USNS Comfort deployed in New York .

The French Navy is affectionately known as La Royale (\\"the Royal\\"). The reason is not well known; some theorise that it is for its traditional attachment to the French monarchy, some others said that before being named \\"nationale\\" the navy had been named \\"royale\\", or simply because of the location of its headquarters, \\"rue Royale\\" in Paris (similar metonyms include Matignon for the French Prime Minister, Quai d'Orsay for the French Foreign Ministry, La Coupole (\\"The Dome\\") for the Académie Fr...

However the French programme had been delayed several times for budgetary reasons and the result was priority being given to the more exportable FREMM project. In April 2013 it wa...
The rank insignia of the French Navy are worn on shoulder straps of shirts and white jackets, and on sleeves for navy jackets and mantels. Until 2005, only commissioned officers had an anchor on their insignia, but enlisted personnel are now receiving them as well. Commanding officers have titles of capitaine, but are called commandant (in the army, both capitaine and commandant are ranks, which tends to stir some confusion among the public). The two highest ranks, vice-amiral d'escadre and a...
