On the May 26, 2013, a special party was held in honor of Chief Engineer Peter Pals who is celebrating his 40 Year Anniversary with Holland America Line. All departments — Nautical, Technical and Hotel staff members — were in attendance to assist in celebrating this momentous occasion. In his speech Chief Engineer Pals shared his experiences onboard Rotterdam III (the venue for the recent Senior Management Conference) among other stories. The occasion was enjoyed by all that attended and highlighted the dedicated service that Peter has tirelessly given over the last 40 years.
