Nieuw Statendam: Who is the Take-out Hotel Director?

Recommended Posts

A previous post was successful in gleaning information about who Nieuw Statendam's take-out Master is.

 

Now, who will be the take-out Hotel Director?

 

If the ship's first Master is at the shipyard overseeing her final build, I have to think that the ship's first Hotel Director is there as well.

It’s Stan Kuppens.

 

Many thanks for your prompt response! An excellent choice who has served in that capacity on other new builds.

 

His efforts to assist guests on tours with regard to Russian immigration procedures when the Eurodam was in St. Petersburg only increased my admiration for Mr. Kuppens skills and guest-oriented nature.

 

Having sailed with Mr. Kuppens before that Eurodam cruise, and having been very pleased with the ship's hotel service, this news increases my anticipation for my Nieuw Statendam cruises this Winter.

Stan K uppens is the ultimate professional, and such a fine gentleman. He has taken out so many HAL ships flawlessly. ;)

Just a heads up; Stan Kuppens is NOT the take-out HD for Nieuw Statendam, Mr. Don Habets is

See above

 

 

Can't read a post by a certain person so still don't know who will be the hotel director.

But I am still wondering how you figured it would not be Stan Kuppens?

I am glad to see you are posting again Copper 10-8! Welcome back and I hope that your family and you are doing well.

 

Glad to know who the take-out HD will be for certain. It was my understanding that Mr. Kuppins was working in Seattle at the home office. But, I know that things do change.

I looked up Mr. Habets profile and am impressed with what I read. He has been with HAL for several years and worked in a variety of capacities in the ship's Hotel Department. A good example of working one's way up the corporate ladder, I think.

Oh wow wonder what happened. Mr. Habets is equally great.
