Zuiderdam’s Operation Smile Hosts Nearly 300 Children in Curaçao

Submitted by: Janet

The Florida Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) recently arranged for Toys ‘R’ Us to donate a pallet of toys and asked Zuiderdam to deliver them to Curaçao. The Zuiderdam Team gladly accepted and set out to create a once in a lifetime experience for 300 deserving children.

The kids toured the ship, were treated to a great lunch by the Lido pool, then rode the glass elevators to deck three where they saw the atrium Christmas tree and checked out the shops on their way to the Vista Lounge where all groups were treated to a part of the show “Dream Park”. As icing on the cake right after the show the kids were thrilled as the sound of Jingle Bells filled the Vista Lounge and then, much to their surprise, Santa and Mrs. Claus rose out of the pit flanked by cast members and a present for all!
