Meet Statendam’s Dining Room Manager Johny Frederix:
I was born and grew up in Bali, Indonesia. I went to the Hotel Institute and majored in Food and Beverage Management in Bali. I worked in several 5-Star hotels before I joined Holland America Line. I went to work on a ship because I would like to see the world.
I have been working on Holland America Line ships since 1991. My first ship was ss Rotterdam where I started as a busboy. From there on I worked my way up to dining room steward, head steward and finally to my current position.
During my vacation I love to ride my Harley Davidson and cook for my family.
