Recommended Posts

Keeper of the Grail, can you tell me who we will be sharing the Westerdam with next week as far as a Captain, HM, and CD are concerned? Thank you O Wise One! :)

 

Scheduled are:

Capt. Henk Keijer

HM Marco van Belleghem

CD - will attempt to find out for you

What are "cloggies"?

 

People that wear wooden shoes, thus people from the Netherlands, Holland, the low country, etc.

The people from Belgium, once part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, also call the Dutch 'kaaskoppen' aka 'cheese heads' (not to be confused with Greenbay Packer fans) while the Dutchies or 'cloggies' are known to call their neighbors to the south (so, the ones from Belgium) 'patat vreters' aka 'French Fry eaters' due to the Belgiumers supposed infactuation with french fries with mayonaise on top of it!

You are now up-to-date on the latest interaction between the very long-time rivalry between the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Kingdom of Belgium

Is it too early to ask who the CD will be on the Eurodam in August?? We had Kerry Watkins last week on the Westerdam and he was quite good (even with his shirt on :D).

 

Yes, waaaaaaaaay too early!

Will it be the same Captain on the March 29th sailing of the Westerdam? Someone I know thought it might be Peter Harris.

 

 

Capt. Harris is scheduled - Enjoy your cruise!

Peter Harris is very visable and very funny in a British sort of way.

 

John,

Who will master the Eurodam for the April 25th TA?

Thanks, you all-knowing cloggie!

Hi Granny!;) Capt. Mercer (yet another Brit;)) is scheduled. Great guy, will always remain our hero for taking Veendam out of Acapulco, twelve years ago, against the Mexican authorities' orders but to escape a hurricane headed straight for town.

Just curious about HAL's method of determining where a cruise director might be placed for their next contract. For example, if a CD did the summer in Europe last year would HAL put them in Alaska this coming summer and then possibly flip them back to Europe in 2010.

Probably a good question for you to pose to DBA (Dutchbyassociation) on this board. CD scheduling on HAL does not appear to be as clear cut as Capt. and H/M scheduling. The longer cruises on ships like Prinsendam and the 'Grand Voyages' appear to have well-established CD's like Thom Faulkner, Bruce Allan Scudder, Susan Wood, etc.

Are you ever going to post your last 2 days or your Sea of Cortez cruise. Have been waiting for the conclusion.

A good idea...thanks. :)
