Here are photos of crew members from the deck department preparing the Amsterdam for her Grand Asia and Australia Voyage. Bosun Jermias created the logo. First he designed it on paper, then cut out the paper and placed it on the bow. Next, crew members placed the outline on the bow and painted it. The entire procedure took a total of two days. It was completed on September 24, as the Amsterdam departed Seattle on the Grand Voyage.
The following sailors helped with the art outline and painting: Sailor AB’s Jamaluddin, Handriyo, Guntur, Tofik, and Yulianto; Sailor OS’s Affan and Anwar, and Deck Storekeeper Lukman.
Julie Berndsen is Amsterdam’s human resources manager.
