    Thank you for the wonderful photo of my first HAL ship. The Nieuw Amsterdam III was a Classic Ship in every way. I was on her maiden west coast trip from San Francisco to Mexico for 2 weeks. If you have any other photos of her I would think everyone would love to see them. They don’t build them like that anymore. Thanks for many wonderful memories.
