Two HAL Captain’s Visit the Bridge on ss Rotterdam

During our Senior Management Conference taking place on ss Rotterdam in Rotterdam, Captains Peter Bos and Edward van Zanne visited the ship’s bridge. Captain van Zanne was captain on ss Rotterdam in 1994. Captain Bos was the last HAL Captain to sail on ss Rotterdam before the ship was sold in 1997. Both Captains enjoyed reminiscing about life on the bridge there and related stories of their time on board.

    Nice to see that old crew visit the beautifully restored ss.Rotterdam. The project has cost a lot of money but the result is amazing. It is one of the few restored ships of the past.

    Captain van Zaane was the Rotterdam’s Master during my third sailing aboard her from Seward to Vancouver in 1996.

    Good to see him again! I have not seen him since the 2008 Grand World Voyage. And, I’m looking forward to a visit to Rotterdam V in August this year!
