Here is a photo of the Volendam soccer team lining up before playing a game in Lautoka, Fiji, last month. The extreme heat and humidity did not hamper their love of the “beautiful game.”
Our culinary team headed by Culinary Operations Manager Marc Spijkerboer and Assistant Culinary Operations Manager Joko Prasetiyo sourced new soccer uniforms for our soccer team (paid for by the crew fund) from Indonesia. We have an enthusiastic mix of housekeeping and galley staff and dining room stewards who jump at the chance of playing every time an opportunity arises.
