Volendam’s Real Life Hero

A big token of gratitude is in order for Volendam Salon Manager Cynthia Ferguson who was presented with the “Life Saver Award” for saving a passenger’s life! Two cruises ago, she saved a guest’s life in the dining room by performing the Heimlich maneuver to stop her from choking. The guest wrote a letter to our Captain expressing her gratitude. She wrote, “I saw my life flash before my eyes. Then she came to my rescue. I was saved by her fast actions. Thank you Cyn.” For this, we presented her with a “Life Saver Award.” Amazing job, Cynthia!


Anne Marie is Volendam’s human resources manager.

    Sincere congratulations to Ms. Ferguson.

    Thank God people have learned the Heimlich maneuver. While on the Amsterdam last August, a gentleman suffered a similar circumstance. He was in obvious distress and was revived by Presty Jenggo, the assistant dining room manager. Wish you would recognize him as well…
