Hi Copper John , could you tell me please where the Westerdam is between Jan 4 2020 and Jan 16 2020 .

Is she in dry dock or possibly on a charter from Singapore ?

We will board her on the 16th of January  and were wondering why there is a gap in the schedule the 12 days before we get on board.

Greetings from Canada . Tony :classic_biggrin:

Goeie avond/good evening Tony

 

Westy's last dry-dock was in April 2017 so she would be due in Jan 2020 plus Singapore has been used by HAL for dry-docks in the past (last time was Volendam in Nov/Dec 2017). I will try to confirm

Why don't you and Martha stay on board until end of April, then we can sail together? 😉We are boarding her end of March.

Copper10-8. Hello again, we are on the Amsterdam starting July 29 for 28 days. I think I remember you mentioning a favorite Mexican restaurant in Juneau, but have no clue if that's correct! It's certainly possible I may be wrong. BTW, I read on captain Alberts blog about the replacement captain for our voyage. Any thoughts, comments as I didn't recognize his name. Thanks as always.

The very good Mexican restaurant in Juneau is called "El Sombrero", walking distance from the ship (make a left turn around the Red Dog Saloon, and head up Franklin Street for a block).

 

Newly promoted A'dam Captain Daniel Bolton is a very  competent mariner and a very nice guy! Enjoy your voyage to Alaska

They actually are already selling stroopwafels here in some Starbucks stores and in places like World Market. I sure do remember the Hema stores while growing up in Amsterdam

Hi Copper, 

 

We're on the Amsterdam on Monday. I remember you mentioning earlier that  our captain is Captain Bolton but what can you tell me about the other officers? 

Thank you!

Copper, do you ever get tired of these eternal questions? Just in case you don't, what can you tell me about who the officers will be on Maasdam for my Sept. 26-Oct. 17 voyage? I might be the only person here who cares about the Housekeeping Manager, but could you include that, if possible? Thanks so much in advance!

 

A more general question - I was on the 89 day grand Asia on Amsterdam last fall and would love to see some of that crew again. Do crew members tend to stay with one ship, or might I find some of those same folks on Maasdam now?
