The green tie was given to men celebrating a birthday. The scarf to the women. FYI Ruth, kissing Annie was on the cruise before the "blackout" cruise. That year the trip she was on left from Boston to Rotterdam then back to New York. When the ship got to Rotterdam all had to get off for the weekend then board again for New York. Annie died in Rotterdam. This info was told to us by Ron the security officer on " blackout" cruise. Holland America had some social event in Rotterdam. They covered hotel for continuing passengers.
