Special thanks to HAL guest Lauren Allen for sharing this photo of her daughter from a Statendam Mexican Riviera sailing in 2000.
This photo is of our daughter Zaide when she participated in a tour of the bridge with Club HAL. She was 5 years old and this was such a memorable trip. We took our honeymoon on the old Westerdam in 1991 through the Panama Canal, and recently sailed on the “new” Westerdam. We pulled into port at St. Maarten to find the old Westerdam tied up there. On our departure the Captain confirmed it was the “old” Westerdam and then told us he worked on the same sailing we were on in 1991! — Lauren Allen
