Wedding Bells Ring for Volendam Sweethearts

Best wishes to our newlyweds on board the Volendam: Culinary Operations Manager Csaba Desvari and Guest Relations Supervisor Anita “Ching” Elevado who met on board seven-and-a-half years ago and finally decided to tie the knot in the Ketchikan City Hall on September 5. Csaba and Ching went ashore and thought that they could get married in secret, but Hotel Manager Simon De Boer found out and arranged a surprise dinner reception for them complete with the bride throwing her bouquet, speeches and cake cutting. A great time was had by all!

Hanna Eklof is Volendam’s Human Resources Manager.

    Dear Anita and Csaba,
    errific news!! I extend to you both my my prayers and fondest wishes for your marriage!
    I and my sister were aboard the Volendam from August 31 to September 7 for your last Alaska voyage this season, and we marvelled at how superb EVERYthing was on the Volendam! This was our first trip to Alaska, and our first cruise on a Holland America ship. We were thoroughly impressed, and I was awestruck continually with the minute-by-minute organization and clockwork functioning of all staff members, both visible and behind-the-scenes.
    You are both obviously in very important responsible jobs, and no doubt have earned your positions through dedication, consistency, intelligence and steadfast work. BRAVO. and I admire you!
    Have fun, be kind to each other, maintain respect for your union, and experience the joy of your special relationship!
