Last month whilst the Prinsendam was in Funchal, Madeira, Portugal, we held our New Hire and Service Award Luncheon in the La Fontaine Dining Room. We had 21 new hires in the company and eight service awards to present, including five 10-year awards, one 15-year award, one 20-year award, and one 35-year award. Our Senior Carpenter Heleno Cruz was the recipient of the 35-year award.
This was a great opportunity to welcome those that are starting their career with Holland America Line and also recognize those that have reached different milestones in their careers.
