Special thanks to Oosterdam’s Beverage Manager Hans Becker for this post.
The seas were calm, the sun was shining, the weather was hot and we were in the pool! YES, this had to be Alaska! Once again officers and some concessionaires aboard the ms Oosterdam took on a friendly game of water volleyball against our guests. The score was close and the competition was ferocious, but the camaraderie and laughter was greater. While sailing away from Ketchikan and having a magnificent Salmon Bake on deck, the vast majority of our guests gathered at the Lido mid-ship and cheered for their favorite team. The ‘oooooohhhhs’ and ‘aaaaaahs’ followed the every move generated by the players on both teams.
The players included myself, Assistant Culinary Operations Manager Thomas, Event Manager Jen, Assistant Shorex Manager Katie, International Concierge Jaditha, Provisions Master Bosco, Guest Relations Supervisor Ching, Fitness Coordinator Steve, Travel Guide Christina and DJ Brett. Good food, good libations, good friends and a great time was had by all!
