Holland America Line President and CEO Stein Kruse recently visited Holland, Germany and Oslo, amidst the exciting news that Rotterdam will sail year-round from Rotterdam, the Netherlands, beginning Fall 2012. The news was announced at a travel industry event at Holland’s award-winning De Librije restaurant, owned by celebrated Chef Jonnie Boer, a member of Holland America Line’s Culinary Council. Special thanks to Jan Fähmel for all of the wonderful photos.
