After the inspection of the ship, the ship’s staff met with Mr. Kruse over dinner. The dinner meeting was utilized by Mr. Kruse to discuss several topics, which included the present state of the business and the Health Environmental Safety and Security inspections and awareness on board and within the company.

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the job of the Environmental Officer is. I forgot to ask when I was onboard the Oosterdam. I think it is very neat that Holland America has Environmental Officers onboard their ships!
    Thanks!
