Douglas Hernandez, Ryndam’s hotel manager, shared with us this note and photos from the ship’s holiday gift program in Costa Maya, Mexico.
Ryndam hosted the Florida Caribbean Gift Program while in Costa Maya, Mexico, bringing the joy of Christmas to 234 under-privileged children in foster homes or institutions where holiday gifts would not ordinarily be possible.
During this event, 15 officers, staff and crew members from Ryndam came ashore along with Santa and met with the children and local dignitaries in the basketball arena for such a joyful occasion. Everyone involved truly enjoyed themselves!
