Former HAL CEO Kirk Lanterman and his wife Janet have been sailing aboard the Westerdam this week experiencing the incredible sights of Alaska and warm hospitality of our crew.
Generously, Mr. and Mrs. Lanterman offered to provide and host a special Shore Excursion for our hard-working team. Eighty crewmembers were excited to sail onboard our privately-chartered catamaran throughout Sitka Sound. On this tour we were greeted by Alaska’s wildlife including dozens of playful sea otters, some lazy harbor seals, numerous bald eagles, a couple humpback whales and even a bear family! Before boarding, Mr. Lanterman was asked if he was excited to go see the sea otters. He responded simply “I’m actually most looking forward to spending time with our crew.” This feeling was mutual as our team took advantage of the unique opportunity to relax and experience an exceptional morning side-by-side with the Lanterman’s.
