Cruise Diary: The Good Life on Ryndam, Part I

As a maritime lover on a Holland America line vessel, I know that there are always paintings hanging on board from the old vessels who carried the name Ryndam. I took several photos of the paintings and also of the current Ryndam.

From the old ...

To the latest.

Ryndam also has new bar areas which are fantastic to see. We Dutch need coffee just like the English need their tea so the Explorations Cafe is the place to be for us.

The shopping area has also been renovated. As you can see, Yvon has found her way there again.

Each day we look at the route map which is displayed on a big screen. It is always nice to see where you are sailing.

Cornelis “Cees” Kloppenburg and his wife Yvon are reprising their role as cruise diarists, this time on board Ryndam. They will be sending in cruise diaries throughout the duration of their time on board. Enjoy!

    Thank you for the photos of the artwork, and the warm interiors of the current Ryndam. Spending time on the HAL ships are among my favorite moments and am looking forward to repeating and repeating the pleasure.
