Busy Day at Manila, Philippines

Below are some pictures from Manila on March 9 with all the families coming on board to visit Amsterdam during our call. As you can see, with over 1,500 visitors expected it was a busy but fantastic day for our crew. At the end of the day we were treated to a fireworks display, which pleased the guests and crew.

    Whilst families enjoyed a day on board, care of Holland America, I, as a passenger, was shown equal generosity and given the opportunity to experience the opposite. I was invited by my friend, Ramil, bass player of Serendipity, to his home where I had the honour of meeting his family, eating authentic Filipino food and truly entering into the culture. I was also given a wonderful guided tour of the city, made all the more exciting as it was conducted via motorbike through the crazy Manila traffic, and I was able to visit many extra interesting places in addition to all the well-known highlights, gaining a valuable insight into the history and everyday life of the Philippines. Ramil was a great ambassador for his country. My only regret was not having time for shopping in the famous Mall – I didn’t want to be late back…!!!! Maybe next time …
