Guest Roy W. Hogue sent us this message and photo after his recent cruise aboard Ryndam:
One of the highlights of our cruise was the opportunity to talk with Captain Smit, master of the ms Ryndam and ask him to pose for a picture with my wife Catharine. Catharine was born in The Netherlands and it meant a lot to her that the captain was willing to do this. It added a personal touch to our cruise that we will always remember.
The captain was always approachable and willing to spend a few minutes from his busy work schedule. He was a great ambassador for the ship and for Holland America Line.
