Cruise Diary: Thanks for a Wonderful HAL Cruise

Carsten Korch, Chief Editor and Founder of Peru this Week, recently sailed aboard Veendam’s 21-Day South America and Antarctica Holiday Voyage with his family. While aboard the ship he chronicled his cruising experience for us on the blog. Here is his final post … Enjoy!

February 15, 2013:

It has been about a month since my family and I returned from one of the most wonderful vacations we have EVER taken. Yesterday, while celebrating Valentine’s Day, my oldest son Nicolas asked me when will we go on another Holland America Line cruise. The staff onboard shared and offered us an excellent experience, while traveling from Rio de Janerio through Antarctica to Santiago de Chile during the Christmas and New Year’s holiday. We all have so many great memories from this wonderful trip and would like to thank everyone on board, who took the time to serve and entertain us during those three weeks. We will never forget what you did for my family. Anton and Nicolas both send a special greeting to Emily and Nicole from ClubHAL, who made sure that they had fun every day on ms Veendam.

Thank you Captain Peter Bos, Bart, Andres, Martin, Jennifer, Barbara, Irsan, Kholik and all of the wonderful people who did an outstanding job to make sure we will always remember this extraordinary trip and turned us into HAL fans for life. We look forward to seeing you all again and the Veendam here in Lima on April 17-18, 2013. More importantly we look forward to traveling with you again in the near future.

Best wishes,

Virginia, Nicolas, Anton and Carsten Korch
Lima, Peru
