In celebration of our 140th birthday, we organized a ship building contest among crew members aboard Zuiderdam. The ships were presented at the “History of Holland America-Then & Now” sales presentation for guests to vote on their favorite ships. Guests voted on “Favorite Ship,” “Most Creative Ship” and “Most Realistic Ship.” The ship voted as “Favorite Ship” won a $500 award. Zuiderdam officers and crew built 10 ships that the guests loved. Here are the three winners with Hotel Director Kees Van Santen and me.
Leslie Hockett is Zuiderdam’s future cruise consultant.
