  1. Their Maritime Museum. But an odd angle. We also enjoyed the free shuttle and the Market downtown. Barbara
  2. One of our sons' friends married a USCG Rescue Swimmer. He is mighty proud of his wife. They used to be stationed in Kodiak, Barbara
  3. The Holland America blog seems to be alive and well. https://www.hollandamerica.com/blog/ Barbara
  4. Ushuaia was a fascinating port. We walked to the historic old prison, found a restaurant, and delighted in the shopping. We brought local currency. More good memories. Barbara
  5. We are still learning. And we need to be careful who we listen to. Barbara
  6. I wonder how he is doing in this pandemic? Hopefully safe and well. Barbara
  7. Our first ms Amsterdam adventure was the 2007 Grand Asia & Pacific Voyage. We were thrilled to get to visit Petropavlosk in Russia. As I climbed up out of the tender, "Welcome to Russia" in perfect English was my greeting, along with a strong hand . Our HAL tour to a family dascha away from the city was fascinating. Returning to port, I decided to enjoy more shopping inside the "terminal" building, since the tender line was so long. We are sad to say farewell to the Amsterdam along with her excellent crew, staff, and officers. Barbara
  8. It was indeed important to get the Men and Women of the crew returned home safely. Barbara
  9. Would the historic "Four Seasons" be more appropriate on ms Nieuw Amsterdam??? Barbara
  10. I have loved Arzz's writing through the years. She told us how her dear husband had to photograph everything to prove that they had been there, even a significant mud puddle. In Venice she taught us to be careful to make sure that the vaporetto was going in the right direction - not in the disastrous opposite direction. Barbara
  11. We will also miss the beautiful ms Amsterdam along with her excellent crew, staff, and officers. Many good memories. Barbara
  12. One more. This is ms Rotterdam in Cadiz, Spain during our 2013 Far East cruise. Barbara
  13. These photos are from our 2017 Voyage of the Vikings. Many happy ms Rotterdam memories. Barbara
  14. Captain Jonathan Mercer: "Stay safe, stay well, my sailing companions. Enjoy your cruising when it returns (and it will with a vengeance) . . . I may occasionally post, however this will be the last which involves the Grand World Voyage . . . " Thank you, Captain Mercer. May God bless you and your family in the years ahead. Barbara
