Celebrating Special Moments with HAL, Part 1

Our Facebook fans sent us photos of their on-board celebrations. We received some great images! Thanks for sharing your special moments with us.

Jim and I celebrated our joint retirement on board the ms Statendam in November/December 2012 by cruising through the Panama Canal and then off to the Hawaiian and French Polynesian Islands. A fabulous cruise we will never forget. Looking forward to our future cruises on Holland America, the only way to cruise. — Mary Griffin

My Celebration Of Life!

This weekend I ran a 5k tour through my village, named Touzac in Lot, France, for the first time in my life. Only a year ago I could run 230 meters (YES, meters) and only 2 years ago I was morbidly obese!!

And I wore my “Dam Crew” baseball cap the whole way! Here you can see me coming back while holding hands with my 4 year-old twins. I haven´t been “crew” for over 13 years, but I still have my cap!

Thank you Holland America Line for helping me reach my goals!

Love, Marlies, 2n maitre d´hotel 1996-2000 o/b ms Rotterdam


Stay tuned for more great celebration photos!

    Congrats on the weight loss. I too was morbidly obese, but lost 140 lbs. this year after weight loss surgery. Maybe soon I will be able to do a 5K too!
