John:

There is a British Captain. He used to relieve Captaain Harris on the old RYNDAM and Captain Mercer when He was on the Veendam . He latter Succeeded Pieter Bos on the Volenddam. His first name is James and has a hyoebated last name?

 

He had been on Cunard before coming to HAL. Is he still with the line? I am just curious

That would be Captain James Russell-Dunford, Father, known as "JRD". He retired in March 2016 and, unfortunately passed away thirteen months later in April 2017 due to illness :(

John, does HAL have a female staff captain? Last I heard she was first officer but that’s been a while.

 

I eagerly await the day a female captains a blue-hulled ship.

Hi Spunk, HAL had a female staff captain by the name of Catherine Williams however, she became a pilot for the Port of London Authority. There is a very competent German female 1st officer so hopefully, she'll be next in line for staff captain

Captains John Scott and Eric Barhorst are scheduled, Father

 

 

John:

Eric Barhorst is currently the Captain on the Eurodam So I bet i get John Scott the last week in June and Eric on the first week in August. What became of the Old Captain who used to rotate with John Scott?

Thanks, sir! We’ve met the German 1st Officer and she is definitely captain-worthy imo. I hope it happens!

 

BTW can you see Cunard captains? We are doing a QM2 TA May 10 and was curious lol

Copper 10-8 is currently doing his duty onboard the Amsterdam, and hopefully will be back before you leave in June to give you the inside scoop. He tends to not post while he is working.

Anyone know who the Captain will be on the Veendam May 12th? I checked on the site but it still says TBA starting April 11-May 26. My son is getting his bronze medallion on this cruise so I’d like to know which Captain will be presenting it to him. Thanks!
