Hi Copper,

Is there any update on the CD for NADM for the May 25, 2019 voyage? Also, do you happen to know who the captain is? Thanks so much!

I went back a ways to see if anyone else had asked, but I don't find any mention, so Copper John, please - who will be the Captain on Koningsdam in October/November this year?  We have sailed with Captain Bowland a couple of times, just wondering if he will be on board then.  

 

Thanks in advance.  (Will we be seeing you up here one of these days?)

Delighted that the schedule has changed slightly! Means that Capt Noel will sail into Cork harbour with Hal's newest ship on September 17th. We will have to get the flags out for him.

Evenin Michael; I know Capt. Mercer will return for one more year and HD Henk Mensink and his wife Christel as GRM, have done "the world" for the last several years, so will no doubt also return. This year's CD is Hamish Davis however, it's still a bit early to know if he will be back in 2020

Thanks Michael and enjoy the 2020 GWV! Experience counts on those long ones all over the world :classic_wink: Case in point, Amsterdam's "tender stuck on the reef" at Arorangi, Cook Islands in 2016 and the personal efforts by Capt. Mercer, HD Mensink, and many others to get the pax safely out and back to mother

For Copper10-8:  Would you happen to know (or tell me how to find out) the senior officers (cruise director, hotel manager etc) on the Prinsendam's last cruise:  the British Isles and North Cape and Norway?  I know the captain is Captain Jeroen Schuchmann.  Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
