Love Connection on the High Seas

Henry and Stephanie met in 2009 whilst sailing on the Veendam in Alaska. Henry was a cadet and Stephanie was youth staff.

They continued to keep in contact whilst Henry went back to Warsash Maritime Academy near Southampton to finish off his nautical studies. Henry qualified as a deck officer in 2010 and since then they have sailed continuously together on the Zuiderdam. During their leave periods Stephanie visited Henry in Wales and they have spent time traveling together in the U.S., England, France and Ireland.

Henry proposed to Stephanie while on a hike in the mountains above Skagway, Alaska. They wish to thank everyone for their kind support.

The happy couple, front and center, celebrate with members from their respective departments, including Captain Chris Turner (front, third from right) and Cruise Director J.T. Watters (front, right).

Amy Kreft is Zuiderdam’s human resources manager.
