  2. Great job Captain Gundersen! That was a good ending for a drama at sea. I am a travel agent with a client currently on the Prinsendam, and so happy that all ended well for the Portguese fishermen.

  3. It’s extremely nice to see this type of humanity exists even on a profit making cruise line. I hope the captain, and all those on board that were part of the rescue were recognized internally at Holland America. I sure do take my hat off for them. Well Done.

  4. I enjoyed the Blog. I also like the idea of “Roll Call”, I don’t like (or trust) Facebook. Is there any way that you can get “Roll Call” on this Blog? Or gmail+? I learned the hard way, as have many others, that Facebook leaves one open to all sorts of undesirables.
