Nils Sjursen - help with reading 3 columns and entries on a ship's manifest

Hello,

Hello,
Could someone please help me decipher the writing in 3 columns for Nils Sjursen? He was originally from Skanevik, Hordaland. Lived for a time on Bauge farm, born in Tugesvik.

Line 614 - Nils Sjursen on page: http://interactive.ancestry.com/7488/NYM237_480-0853/9994052...

Front page of ship’s manifest: http://interactive.ancestry.com/7488/NYM237_480-0853/9994052...

Questions:
1. Heading for 7th column from left. It is NOT cabin, what is the term?
2. Heading and Entry for 8th column from left. I think it is number in party and it says 2. Is that correct? Can you tell who else is traveling with him, and if so, who is it (line number)?
3. Heading and Entry for last column on right. Is this the City he originally left from, possibly in Norway ? What is the entry?

Thanks so much for any assistance you can provide. I appreciate it very much.
