Adventure traveler and Dutch TV personality Charlotte Van Hoorn was on board Zaandam for an Alaska cruise and will be sharing her adventure with us.
What fun to cheer on our own friend as she breezed through the tryouts for Dancing with the Stars: At Sea with her signature favorite, the Waltz. Paired with the professional dancer aboard I had just watched on Noordam in the Caribbean in March, I knew she had a good shot to make the finals. Since the TV finals just finished, we were all enjoying hearing about her practice routines and we turned out to support her bid to go on in the competition between the ships of the fleet’s contestants. A real addition for HAL to satisfy those who enjoy dancing. Meanwhile, our gang enjoyed the disco, live music and watching the pros at different times during the voyage.
And let me not forget the Dutch couple pictured working the Samba on stage. Her parents had enjoyed HAL so much that they were taking the family to Alaska all the way from The Netherlands to celebrate their 40th anniversary. And so I rest my case. Let HAL do all the work to keep everyone in your family or group happy and just enjoy. So many choices, so little time.
