Postcards from ms Ryndam

HAL guest Jim Sykes shared with us this note and gorgeous photos from his recent cruise aboard Ryndam. Thanks Jim!

My parents are frequent guests aboard the “dam” ships and even as I write this they are on their 24th cruise with Holland America. My wife and I took an opportunity to travel with them aboard ms Ryndam two weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed our first-ever cruise.

I am a photographer and of course the beauty of the ship inspired me to be creative with my camera during the trip. My mother is a devout reader of the Holland America blog and I know she would be excited to see some of these images posted there.
