Blog Board member Ed van Weijen just sent us this photo of Tamarind. It looks like an elegant and intimate dining venue.
Jafar Al-Shibibi, corporate manager, guest and dining services for Holland America Line, sent us this photo of some of Tamarind’s all-female wait staff.
They have moved on board since we received the photo, but we thought it would still be fun to post with the latest image of the venue.
Our first class of Indonesian ladies went through an intensive five-week English course and then completed a three-week skills course, which included all service aspects of their job and specialized training from myself and HAL’s corporate dining services trainer, Stephane Carriou.
Our newest waitresses will be working in the new pan-Asian alternative restaurant, Tamarind, on board Eurodam.
